Father Of Sandy Hook Victim: “The Problem Is Not Gun Laws”

I’m normally a little suspicious of giving absolute moral authority to the victims/family of victims/friends of victims of some tragedy on public policy issues.

President Obama has shown himself to be nothing if not the consummate opportunist.

Ohio School District Votes To Allow Non-Teaching Staff To Carry Firearms

A step in the right direction, I think: An Ohio school board has unanimously voted to place armed custodians on their K-12 campus in an effort to better protect their students from a future mass shooting. Following Wednesday’s believed unprecedented 5-0 vote in the state, four male janitors were the first to volunteer to arm
