From The Left: School Gun Bill Seems Appropriate

From The Left: School Gun Bill Seems Appropriate

I may surprise a few people this week, but after closely studying House Bill No. 1195, I am inclined to support it. The bill give school districts the authority to designate an individual to carry a concealed weapon on school grounds, but only after undergoing background checks, additional training on both firearms and violence prevention,


Do We Really Want More Cops In Schools?

Yesterday there was a debate before the House Education Committee over two school security bills. One was HB1195, sponsored by Rep. Dwight Kiefer (R-Valley City), which would allow school boards to choose and train certain personnel to concealed carry on school grounds. The other was HB1388, also introduced by Kiefert, which would begin a pilot


Rep. Dwight Keifert: We Need Concealed Carry To Protect Our Schools

I feel that we can pass a bill to allow trained personnel to conceal and carry in schools with the approval of the school board, hold a class one license, receive training similar to a resource officer, and work with local law enforcement. But the only way it will be implemented is if parents demand


Yet Another “Gun Free Zone” Attacked By Shooter, This Time In Nevada

There was a school shooting today in Nevada perpetrated, according to early reports, by a student who is also dead. The shooter was able to claim two victims before dying either at his/her own hands or someone else’s. As of right now, there’s no indication for what motivated the shooting. I’m sure the news will


Tioga Superintendent Who Brought Gun To School Deserved To Lose His Job

KXNet – Bismarck/Minot/Williston/Dickinson I’m getting a lot of email this morning expressing outrage that Tioga Superintendent D’Wayne Johnston resigned amid controversy over his having brought a gun to school. According to some of you readers, Johnson did the right thing. I disagree. It’s not clear from the reports I’ve seen whether or not Johnston has a


Kid Put In Jail Over Facebook Comment Is Now On Suicide Watch

Over the weekend I posted about a Texas teenager put in a jail for posting a tasteless, but perfectly harmless, comment on Facebook. Today The Blaze reports that Justin Carter, who spent his 19th birthday in jail, is on suicide watch: Justin Carter, 19, is “currently on suicide watch in Comal County Jail near San


Teenager Jailed For Months Over A Facebook Joke

Was the joke in poor taste? Absolutely. Should he have been jailed for months over it? Don’t our cops have better things to do with their time? Jack Carter says his son Justin and a friend got into an argument with someone on Facebook about the game and the teenager wrote a comment he now

Guest Post: Rep. Kevin Cramer Told The Truth About Moral Decline

Before It Was History, It Was News is the title of a book written to connect actual news stories with the recorded history of the America Revolution. In this day and age, however, the words to an old chorus might give the careful reader cause to think: The voice of truth tells me a different


Cramer Gets Heat For Linking Legalized Abortions And School Shootings

Even though it’s not an election year, it’s clear the avenues of communication between North Dakota Democrats and national liberal media like the Huffington Post are still wide open. A couple of weeks ago Rep. Kevin Cramer delivered the commencement remarks at the University of Mary in Bismarck. In the remarks, Rep. Cramer decried what


Democrat Wants NASCAR Race Pulled Off Air Because The NRA Is Sponsoring It

Why not, the nanny statists got the Winston Cup sponsorship pulled. So, having successfully censored tobacco advertising, obviously they think they can get guns pulled too. Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy does not like the NRA, and he’s making that quite clear. In a letter to News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, he’s asking that Fox cancel
