The Tom Roten Morning Show...Mornings from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., on Newstalk 800 WVHU/1600 WZZW.
The final room at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT hadn't even been cleared before the news media and liberal politicians began using the tragedy that left 26 children and teachers dead to push their gun-grabbing agenda. Before the first memorial service could be scheduled or the first child buried, TV news hosts were calling for weapon bans and blaming the slaughter on the NRA!
Their push has had a far-reaching affect too! It's affected retail stores in two ways. Walmart & Dick's have halted sales of certain fire arms. But other gun dealers are reporting record sales with the reason being that many fear lawmakers will actually panic and give in to the gun control crowd. At one Barboursville, WV gun store, sales were up 400% this past Monday compared to a normal Monday at Christmas time!
So how do you stop a mad man killer who is bent on taking innocent lives? We'll first off make it a gun-free zone, right? Oh wait a minute...this school, as well as every school, is already a gun-free zone...so was the movie theater in Colorado and the mall in Oregon.
What if there were armed guards at the schools? Too much? Ok, what about training and arming at least some of the teachers, principals, and other staff members at the schools?
Some think it's a good idea. Here are some articles on the subject:
Friend, this country has lost her way! You can't stop evil by passing more gun laws! Bob Costas thinks the KC Chiefs player and his girl friend would still be alive if he didn't have a gun. Well wouldn't the Dallas Cowboys player still be alive if his teammate didn't have a car? Or drink alcohol?
Some say semi-automatic/automatic weapons didn't exist when the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment and so they didn't intend for citizens to own them. Well tanks and rocket launchers didn't exist then either. And what the Fonders wanted to make sure of is that the average citizen would be able to defend himself with the same weapons system the government had. So George, John, Thomas, and the rest of those fellas probably would of seen to it that we ALL could have our own tank, drone, or missile system!
I wish these gun-grabbin' idiots would shut up! They're the same liberals who kicked God outta school 40-50 years ago. School violence has increased a lot since then, hasn't it?
Maybe it's time for parents to pull their children out of these government indoctrination war zones!
