” On Monday’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe mocked NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre for asserting a year ago that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” by using the example of Antoinette Tuff, who last August heroically talked a gunman in a school into surrendering.

  Wolffe treated one exceptional and unlikely case as if it proved LaPierre wrong as he awarded Tuff the show’s “person of the year” award. Wolffe: “

Ore. School Board Votes To Allow Staff To Pack Heat At School

 

 

 

” St. Helens School Board chairman Marshall Porter told ABCNews.com that the board lifted a ban that prevented school employees from carrying guns on campus with concealed weapons permits on Wednesday.

“The current law in Oregon allows for anybody to concealed carry on school grounds,” he said. “To exclude our staff seems like they’re being punished. They should have a right to protect themselves if they so choose.”

The repeal affects the seven schools within the St. Helens School District, including two elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and three alternative schools, Porter said.

“I have my kids in there. If there was a chance that something was to happen, and there’s a chance that a teacher might be able to protect them, I’m fine with that,” school board member Kellie Smith told ABC News’ Portland affiliate KATU-TV.

Since the vote, only one parent has contacted Porter about their dissatisfaction with the result, he said.

The move to repeal the weapons ban was less controversial than the vote to bring back school sports at the district’s middle school, which took place at the same time, Porter said.”

Daugaard Signs Bill Allowing Armed Personnel In Schools

 

 

” Despite opposition from the education community, the school sentinel bill was signed into law Friday by South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard.

The bill gives school boards the authority to allow armed personnel in school buildings.

The House had previously approved the plan, but the Senate added requirements that said school boards must discuss the program in open meetings and decisions to adopt the sentinel programs can be referred to public vote.

Rep. Scott Craig, R-Rapid City, said the Senate amendments strengthened the legislation.

“It is now a better bill and I ask you to support it again,” he said.

Educators interviewed earlier this week remained unconvinced the legislation is needed.”

Over 1,000 Educators Apply for Armed Teacher Training

” The Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA) announced in a January 9 release that over 1,000 educators have applied for its partner foundation’s Armed Teacher Training Program first publicized December 20, 2012. Applications are still being accepted via online survey.

“The original intent was to simply offer free firearm training to 24 teachers in order to show that teachers could be an
effective deterrent to mass murder in schools,” BFA wrote.

In the wake of the mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, interest from teachers and other school employees was much higher than the pro-Second Amendment group anticipated.

“After three weeks, we have received well over 1,000 requests for this training. So while the goal is still the same, the scope of this program has changed significantly,” BFA explained before answering a number of frequently asked questions “

I didn’t want to post about this, because frankly, it is exhausting. I’ve been having this exact same argument for my entire adult life. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I know pretty much exactly every single thing an anti-gun person can say. I’ve heard it over and over, the same old tired stuff, trotted out every single time there is a tragedy on the news that can be milked. Yet, I got sucked in, and I’ve spent the last few days arguing with people who either mean well but are uninformed about gun laws and how guns actually work (who I don’t mind at all), or the willfully ignorant (who I do mind), or the obnoxiously stupid who are completely incapable of any critical thinking deeper than a Facebook meme (them, I can’t stand).

Today’s blog post is going to be aimed at the first group…

Gov. Rick Perry Backs Teachers Packing Heat

 

 

” Compounding a mild pro-gun rant with a declaration to consider a 2016 presidential run, Texas Governor Rick Perry affirmed his commitment to the Second Amendment by encouraging allowing all teachers in the state to carry guns on campus at a Tea Party event Monday.

Perry’s pro-gun remarks arrive amid a heated national gun control debate in which governors across the country are either defending the Second Amendment or taking steps to destroy it.

A Senate bill (S.B. 59) passed by the Michigan house would allow citizens to carry firearms into “pistol free” zones; it awaits Gov. Rick Snyder’s signature.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez told the Albuquerque Journal the state should “consider legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill” before considering more drastic action.

Some legislators are geniunely confused about the entire situation and don’t know where to put the blame.

Arizona governor Jan Brewer, whose state weathered heavy Second Amendment attacks following last year’s Tucson shooting, says the answer may lie inevaluating behavioral health services, not in gun control, while Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper pointed to video games and a “culture of violence” as the main contributing factors in these types of attacks.

“There might well be some direct connection between people who have some mental instability and when they go over the edge – they transport themselves, they become part of one of those video games,” Hickelooper told CNN’s State of the Union.”
