In the final moments of the show, "Good Morning America" weatherman Sam Champion asked her if schools should hire armed guards in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shooting.
"I don't think the proper way to fight violence is with violence," she replied. "I think the proper way is to educate people on guns and the ways we can use them properly. We can lock them up, we can have gun safety classes, we can have a longer waiting period."
Maybe our ranting anti-gun zealots, like Ms. Irene, Neil Rotter, Gov. Cuomo (Cujo to me), the Lamestream media-ites, Pres Obama, etc, who also use education as the end-all solution to everything...maybe they will agree we add "gun safety" classes to the curriculum as a requirement for graduation. Why not? We require drivers' ed classes to drive. Why not require every student take a gun safety class? Heck, if we spend taxpayer dollars to educate on safe sex, don't you think we could spend a few bucks on things about guns?
If I follow the liberals logic, then I am to assume every kid will put one in his/her hands. And since liberals think ALL parents are too stupid to show the proper handling and use, train the kids!
The human mind has a tendency to appreciate and respect an object more if it learns how to use it properly and that it's not a toy. Now some just won't... Sorry to say some parents are just that...too stupid. Some are like that mother of the Sandy Hook thug. She didn't lock up her guns. Nor did she heed the warning signs that something was just wrong with her kid.
What about cars? We all know there are those who will take a car to its limits. Only to meet their maker because of their stupidity. There are some who no matter what you teach them, they end up slicing their fingers because they don't handle a knife properly.
But it isn't the knife, nor the car, nor the gun that causes damage. It's the person behind it.
FYI - I had to fill out a "permit to buy" application and turn into Sheriff Department just to buy a handgun. And I also had to take a concealed carry class, get fingerprinted, pay $90 just so the SBI and FBI could investigate me to see if I was ok to conceal carry. Just waiting for the call.
But like Miss America who thinks education is part of the solution...I say come on liberal educrats...let's train the kids!
