I think that our nation may be trending toward the wussy side. It won't be long before criminals and terrorists can shut down schools, malls, and entire sections of cities just by scrawling threatening messages on bathroom stalls.

I wonder if Israel would react to the threats this way, or if they would warn their citizens (who are armed) to be wary, and move on with life?
Unless we motivate our leaders and citizenry to start taking steps to protect ourselves, and stop relying solely on the police, we will develop into a nation of "fainting goats" (look it up).

After a school massacre at Maalot, Israel almost 34 years ago, Israeli teachers and concerned parents volunteered for a program taught by Mishmar ha' Esrachi, the nation's Citizen Guard. They trained in the defensive use of handguns. Carrying concealed weapons, they discreetly protected the schools. The word got out. The massacres ended. The only subsequent shooting of Israeli students occurred in the ironically-named "Zone of Peace" at the Jordanian border. The Jordanians requested that the Israeli teachers and parents leave their guns at home. They did. The adults and the schoolgirls were helpless when an Arab terrorist opened fire.
In 1990s Peru, Shining Path guerrillas made a habit of terrorizing village schools with murder and kidnapping. The solution of the Fujimori government was to arm teachers with old Mauser 7mm military rifles and modem Mossberg 12-gauge shotguns. The assaults on the children came to a abrupt end.

Great points! Let's send it to Washington!... unless Obama is elected... he'll ignore it and chalk the suggestion up to us being bitter and that we are only clinging to guns as a way to explain our frustrations.

When I get frustrated, I cling to my Sharpie. That way I can post useless dribble while taking a dump. While I'm not taking a dump, I post useless dribble here...
