Thread: Rational thought... Gone?

  1. Rational thought... Gone?

    Here I sit in my son's high school auditorium waiting for the play to begin. I am once again pondering the logical reasoning behind the "School Safe Zone". My carry is locked in my truck as I am a law abiding individual.
    I, for the life of me, can still find ZERO logic behind a law that does nothing but limit my ability to protect myself and my family from someone who is bent on harming anyone in their way.
    If you are bent on murder, what in the world would make anyone think that a sign on the wall will stop him/her from that.
    Can any one give me ANY logical reason for this misguided law?

    What's logic got to do with it?

    Everyone at the school is much safer because no one is legally allowed to have a gun on the property. Obama, Feinstein, Schumer and the rest have told me so, therefore it must be true... oh wait, you said a logical argument... in that case there are none. Gun free zones are the ridiculous result of uninformed reactionary politicians trying to look like they are doing something for those ignoramuses who think guns are scary and banning them from law abiding citizens will miraculously mean that criminals will give theirs up out of the goodness of their hearts.

    Sad state of affairs. I spend my days working in a similar environment and there is no logic to it.

  6. Back out of the "safe zone" ready to re-arm. Oh, and the play was very good.

    You are correct that it is for the criminals. To take it further it is for the criminals protection! We have to make sure that the BG does not run the risk of getting hurt!!!

    This is the type of laws we get from our mental midget idiots!!!

    Perhaps we could post signs and declare our Local, State and Federal Governments to be Free of Stupidity! That might work!

    Yes I can!! You now live in an asylum currently run by its inmates and formerly known as the USA. We are watching the the drain, currently known as the USA, circle the bowl before it goes down the toilet. We have a sociopathic narcissistic socialist/communist/fascist domestic terrorist (take your pick) as our king with no clothes and all the idiocy starts right there in DC and filters down through the inmate population mentioned above. You think this way and everything makes perfect sense.

    When I think of it. The real "Sad state of affairs" is that there was ever a reason to hang a "Safe School Zone" sign or to feel we need to carry a gun inside a school for protection. When I was young and in school neither of these things were on anyone"s radar. Guns were for hunting and target shooting. I was never aware of anyone that owned a gun for home protection, they were all hunters. As kids, when in a friends house , the dads rifles were hanging on a gun rack on the wall, or in a nice wood cabinet with a glass door. No real security, but there was little need for that.
    Fast forward 40-50 years. Gun shops are all over the place. The main reason people buy guns now is for personal protection, myself included, hunting seems to be a distant second. Guns now require trigger locks, and we store them on a 1000lb vault that can't be broken into without a torch. But as society continues to decline we will see more of these things happen. To me, this is a sad state of affairs.
