So far we haven’t seen any Grizzly Bears in Clove Valley, but Betsy DeVos was questioned at a Senate hearing today and suggested it would be OK to have arms in schools to defend against just such incursions.

Now to be fair to her I think she said that it should be left up to the States and in fact at Texas universities, students are allowed to carry concealed weapons.

“Sioux Center, Iowa (CNN) Donald Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street.

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a campaign rally here.”

He was right about not losing voters but that of course doesn’t make it right.

I support the Second Amendment but agree with the Gipper who said:

“I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense. But I do believe that an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.”
