[ - ] Does anyone remember the story of the young girl at a rifle range with the trained former soldier who had dozens of years of experience with guns? The guy accidentally killed himself in front of her when he mishandled the gun. Now we have Donald Trump INSISTING that your child's teacher be armed with assault weapons with minimal training. It's sick. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Did you read about the couple in the motel room with two toddlers, and the mom had a gun in her purse? The older toddler was digging around in the purse for her smartphone and found the gun and shot the younger toddler. They were living in a motel because they couldn't afford a home, but they could afford two toddlers, a gun and a smartphone. [ Reply | More ]

The "orange man" isn't up for re-election in November. But many NRA-funded politicians are. Vote them out or vote them in, depending on whether you agree that your child's Kindergarten teacher should have an assault weapon in her classroom. [ Reply | More ]

He has his own idea of what the second amendment means, and he is wrong. Not what the founding s fathers anticipated at all! Remember the individual right interpretation arose from a Supreme Court majority appointed by GWB. Who didn't even legitimately win in 2000. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have to admit, NRA chairman Wayne LaPierre gave a powerful speech at the CPAC conference. Liberals don't have any refutation for this: "“The elites don’t care not one whit about America’s school system and schoolchildren. If they truly cared, what they would do is they would protect them. For them, it’s not a safety issue, it’s a political issue. They care more about control, and more of it. Their goal is to eliminate the second amendment and our firearms freedoms so they can eradicate all individual freedoms. They hate the NRA, they hate the second amendment, they hate individual freedom." 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

"They fantasise about more laws stopping what other laws have failed to stop. So many existing laws were ignored. They don’t care if their laws work or not. They just want to get more laws to get more control over people. But the NRA – the NRA does care. The NRA will defend the freedoms that made this nation great." - powerful stuff. [ Reply | More ]

Current family. Keep looking. It's not the same school it once was (the principal changed 3 years ago). We didn't get into Anderson and this was our second choice.
