    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall but decided not to after the network gave him a "scripted question," quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV

    I argue for a living. I often deal with hacks, liars, and agenda-driven fanatics. But never in a quarter century of being in court rooms have I faced such a blizzard of constitutional illiteracy, technical ignorance, flabby reasoning, and outright lies as I have dealing with people who think our Second Amendment rights are up for debate.Our rights are not up for debate. But, as a courtesy, because talking is the way a free people should endeavor to solve problems, we should debate them anyway. Rational discussion beats the alternative – many of us are vets who saw the alternative...

    SUNRISE, Fla. — Republican Sen. Marco Rubio was put on the defensive Wednesday by angry students, teachers and parents who are demanding stronger gun-control measures after the shooting rampage that claimed 17 lives at a Florida high school. One of those confronting the Florida senator at a CNN's "Stand Up" town hall Wednesday night was Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed on Feb. 14 with 16 others. Rubio was the lone Republican at the nationally broadcast gathering after Florida's GOP Gov. Rick Scott and President Donald Trump declined invitations to appear at the event in Sunrise, Florida. ......

    submit to reddit A survivor of the Parkland, FL school shooting got into an intense clash with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during Wednesday night’s CNN Town Hall. Cameron Kasky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, put the question directly to Rubio. “Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future?” Kasky said. Rubio replied, “I can tell you that people buy into my agenda. And I do support the second amendment.”
  • School Safety and the Placebo of Gun Control

    02/21/2018 9:52:07 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 6 replies
    “We have to do something.” I’ve heard that phrase time and again from politicians and gun control spokesmen. With some 23 thousand firearms regulations already on the books, it seems that we’ve done quite a lot that hasn’t worked. Those ineffective laws don’t stop the urge for more feel-good regulation after the murders in Parkland, Florida. We tried mandatory background checks. Those laws didn’t stop the mass murder at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. Background checks didn’t stop the murders at Isla Vista, California, or at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. I chose these particular examples because...

    As expected – buried deep inside a Miami Herald article about the Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, and a school board questioning their progressive policies, we find the following: […] Absent Cruz’s school records, it is hard to say precisely when Cruz’s behavior became an acute problem for teachers and administrators. Disciplinary reports obtained by the Herald show that at Westglades Middle School, which he attended in 2013, he’d been cited numerous times for disrupting class, unruly behavior, insulting or profane language, profanity toward staff, disobedience and other rules violations. Records show the behaviors continued at Marjory Stoneman Douglas [High...

    Sen. Ted Cruz was asked by a TMZ reporter in Washington, D.C., last week if Hollywood, while touting overwhelming opposition to the Second Amendment, shares blame for gun violence due to its influence in American culture. And the Republican from Texas shot straight from the hip. I don’t think this is one too many movies with cowboys and Indians or [Arnold] Schwarzenegger, Quentin Tarantino, or what have you. I don’t think that’s the cause. Evil has always been with us. Now Hollywood does glorify violence, and I’ve got to say I wish we had a little bit less of that....

    A hunter in North Carolina who was using an electronic animal caller was fatally shot by a man with an AR-15 who said he mistook the sounds for coyotes roaming near his home, police and relatives said. Michael Seth Marsh, 26, was killed late Monday in a wooded area in Taylorsville, about 60 miles northwest of Charlotte, as he was hunting coyotes with a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle and an electronic coyote call, the Taylorsville Times reports. Marsh was rushed to a nearby hospital, but he could not be saved. Marsh is survived by his wife, Katy, and two children,...

    In the wake of last weekÂ’s tragic shooting at a Florida high school, the national narrative has centered on guns. Democrats mostly argue for increased gun control measures, while Second Amendment advocates mostly oppose any new restrictions. The debate usually dies quickly after a shooting, but it has remained strong over the last week. Now, even President Donald Trump is reportedly considering new restrictions on firearms. No. 1: Raising the purchase age for certain firearms Axios reported Wednesday that Trump has privately discussed supporting a measure that would raise the purchase age for semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21. Currently,...

    MSNBC’s Katy Tur has a glaring habit of letting her anti-Republican hatred run wild while confronting and slamming GOPers on issues she knows little about. The same was true when she hosted the 2:00 p.m. hour of MSNBC Live on Wednesday when the network’s cameras were in Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office documenting anti-gun protestors screaming at the receptionists while he wasn’t there. Tur declared Scott was “refusing to speak” with them, but was later educated by his office and forced to report he was attending a funeral for one of the students slain in the Parkland shooting. “This is...

    US President Donald Trump has said arming teachers could prevent school shootings like that which left 17 people dead last week in Florida. A staff member with a gun could end an attack "very quickly", he said. Mr Trump floated the proposal as emotional survivors of the 14 February massacre implored him to make sure it never happens again. The Republican president also backed calls for improved background checks on gun buyers.

    After appearing as the No. 1 trending video for hours, YouTube finally removed a video that suggested one of the high school students who survived the Parkland, Fl. shooting last week was an actor. In a statement to Fox News, a YouTube spokesperson said: "This video should never have appeared in Trending. Because the video contained footage from an authoritative news source, our system misclassified it. As soon as we became aware of the video, we removed it from Trending and from YouTube for violating our policies. We are working to improve our systems moving forward.” The title of the...

    Orono Police Chief Correy Farniok said one juvenile was arrested at Orono High School Wednesday afternoon in connection to a pair of social media posts that caused a lockdown of Orono schools. Farniok said the juvenile arrested was one of two persons of interest who have been identified in the matter. He said both suspects, who were identified as students, were holed up in Orono High School during the lockdown. Police were informed around 10:57 a.m. Wednesday of a pair of threats made on social media threatening a shooting at Orono schools at noon. That led to a lockdown which...

  • Did the Progressive 'Broward County Solution' Cost 17 Student Lives?

    "We're not compromising school safety. We're really saving the lives of kids," boasted Michaelle Valbrun-Pope, executive director of Student Support Initiatives for Broward County Public Schools, in August 2017. Valbrun-Pope was referring to what an article by Jeffrey Benzing in Public Source calls the "Broward County Solution." As Benzing relates, Broward County used to lead the state of Florida in sending students to the state's juvenile justice system. County leaders responded with a perfectly progressive solution: "lower arrests by not making arrests."

    Calling it an “anathema,” Dem Sen. Richard Blumenthal has said “I will fight” the arming of teachers in schools. Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Blumenthal said: “He [President Trump] seems to be backing the idea of arming teachers and eliminating gun-free zones. That idea has been rejected soundly and consistently by the entire educational community; by teachers, superintendents, principals. Because it makes schools less safe. And it is a non-starter, whether it’s proposed singly or part of any other measure in the United States Senate. I will fight it, because it is an anathema. A dangerous and frightening prospect. But...
