Lawmakers Pass Democrat Bill Guaranteeing Teachers Cannot Shoot Back if School Under Attack:
On Monday, lawmakers passed a gun control bill introduced by Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) to disarm teachers and staff who are currently allowed to carry guns for self-defense in California school districts.On June 20, 2017, a Democratic State Senator in California denies the 2nd Amendment Rights of school teachers because of their educational position.
As Breitbart described:
McCarty introduced his legislation, AB 424 in mid-February. On May 12, Breitbart News reported that he justified his push to disarm teachers by saying, “A safe learning environment is essential for our children to be successful in the classroom. That’s not possible if a school district allows armed civilians to roam California school campuses.”
McCarty did not differentiate between guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens at schools versus guns in the hands of criminals who will attack regardless of gun-free policies. Moreover, he did not list one crime committed by an armed teacher or staff member in the five California districts that allowed such personnel to be armed for defense of themselves and their students.
A careful reader might wonder whether, if these teachers had the intent of slaughtering their students, the question whether they might legally bring a gun into the classroom would be moot.
Curiously, at least one Federal Congressman is trying to establish a bill which allows Congressmen to carry concealed weapons in Washington, DC. This is an area where the average citizen faces severe restrictions to provide for themselves the same level of personal protection which the Congressman apparently considers a right..
How privileged are the privileged, and should they be? We will discuss that elsewhere.
