Did anyone catch the idiot statement from the State Congressman from Colorado Springs (Doug Dean-R) about the impending concealed weapons permit vote and the events that happened at the shot up high school? He said that if one of the teachers or administrators had a concealed weapon that he (or she) could have shot the gunmen and ended the incident.
What a asinine thing to say. Hello Congressman Dean, those kids had assault rifles, automatic handguns, hand grenades,…etc. How realistic is it to say that a High School Vice-Principal is going to pick off two kids with
AK-47s, and hand grenades with his/her handgun? I’ve got an idea Congressman Dean, why don’t we just give every high school kid a Beretta with their student handbooks so if this happens again our sons and daughters can just whack the gun-toting whackos and then go back to study hall? Or how about this, instead of student hall monitors, we can have student high school “prison-type guards” that can walk around with shotguns and shoot anybody who looks suspicious or sit up in towers and sniper off anybody that is wearing a trenchcoat.
Congressman Dean, you are an asshole. Your comments could only come from an asshole and any moron who thinks that arming citizens with guns is going to stop horrible, horrible events like this is a misguided asshole.
I’m not about to go into the whole NRA thing, but think about this, I don’t expect gun laws to fix the problem overnight, but you have to start somewhere. The sooner you make them illegal, the sooner law enforcement can start destroying guns. Sure it will take decades to eradicate all the guns in America, but until you start somewhere, it will never happen.
