I don’t believe in federal gun control laws, pro or con. It’s none of the federal government’s business. The Second Amendment is just fine. We don’t need more gun laws. We need the repeal of gun laws.
But one Congressman-elect thinks what we need is armed teachers. You know. Like El Al Airline’s pilots.
The gun control crowd is apoplectic at this proposal. It’s not the legislation they have in mind. The Newtown massacre is supposed to be the Great Opportunity. But it’s not turning out that way. The public will soon forget. Meanwhile, the fiscal cliff debate is tying up Congress.
A New York Times writer laments: “. . . those who hope to change the gun laws will have to act quickly, before everyone drifts back to whatever position they held before Newtown.”
In short, “Strike while the iron is hot! The voters are so forgetful.” Yes, they are.
A majority of voters in Texas want to apply a bumper sticker motto in Texas: “Don’t mess with Texas.” That bumper sticker slogan has to do with littering. But it reflects an attitude in Texas. Texans don’t like meddling from Washington when it comes to gun ownership.
Texas is red state central.
Texans think this video is funny. If you think it is funny, you either live in Texas or ought to.
