TYLER TX.-We're making progress.
Now that some of the emotions are simmering down from last friday's shootings, I am hearing some of what I think are good ideas to be considered to try and make sure nothing like that ever happens again.
I think it's good the NRA is coming to the table.
I know some folks are reaching for the remote control right now.
Let me say I am a member of the NRA and they also certified me as an instructor.
I don't want to be a part of something I think is out of control.
I want them to be a part of the conversation.
I think it's good they have something to say.
Their news conference will be friday.
I do think we have to be careful when we give up any of our freedoms.
We will never get them back.
The hard left sees this school tragedy as a time to launch a "get all the guns agenda."
That will likely never happen, at least not in my lifetime,but I do understand why gun enthusiast wince when gun rights are discussed because those wanting to write laws most likely have never even shot a gun and know little about why people want guns.
I think all schools need to have a one-point entry and exit.
I think an armed person needs to be there.
The countryside is full of great ex-cops and veterans who need the money.
One thing is for certain, gun- free zones have never worked and are laughable.
And it's laughable to ever think a criminal or sociapath with ever care they
are breaking the law by carrying out their misdeeds in a no this or that zone.
They are criminals.
Some people need to look that word up.
But, we need to talk.
But, we need reasonable talk.
That's my point of view whats yours?
