I do not think that anyone in this thread has mentioned this cute little question....
WHY IN THE HELL IS THIS THE BUSINESS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ANYWAY???
Did you know that they had to pass the gun free schools legislation twice?
Yea, the first time they forgot to add the lame BS about how guns within 1000 feet of a school had a detrimental effect on interstate commerce. It is their go-to excuse for interfering in state and local affairs.
Let the states deal with it. Different states, different solutions.
Eventually enough data will emerge to see whether allowing concealed carry by teachers, administrators and custodians has a better outcome than magazine size restrictions and assault weapon bans. Eventually states with less effective laws will copy those with more effective laws. It is how it was meant to be.
Instead we have become so used to seeing the federal government looked to as the entity to solve all our problems.
Reagan was right, Government is not the solution to the problem, it is the problem.
