Another one, for you doubting that the consitution and the "right to b. arms" is in the crosshairs of the FG.
For those who are failing to connect the dots...
SHTF... They do not want the public armed, disgruntled and dangerous; And they are making EVERY clear example of why it might be a BAD idea for the average 'joe' to have a gun.

Does anyone who post on this site take the time to read the source material before commenting on it? As I read the comments I see "maybe it was staged" "A parent who keeps a gun hidden in the night stand" and a lot of "Where does a year old get a gun?"
If anyone took the time to actually READ the article, they would have seen..
The boy told authorities that he found the firearm inside the vehicle that he had come to school in -- one which Griffith said belonged to the youngster's stepfather.
I don't think this was staged at all. I think it is a classic example of being [color=gold]careless with a firearm. Luckily no one was hurt and hopefully everyone involved learns something. Sadly this will be played up and used as another reason to make a case for legislating firearms more.
And I don't want to be careless either.
I want this verified.
I see a lot of rushing to judgment.
I'm here pointing out that in America there are supposed to be procedures for checking evidence.
I didn't want to have to bring it up, but the news stories that I have looked into personally have all had the merit of one KEY peice of information being witheld.
Like that hero Uncle who rescued his nephew from a shark.
Turns out He had just caught the shark while fishing and sent his nephew in to unhook it. Is that man still a hero like the news painted him for days in a row?
Why did they leave this part out.
/wake up slap
A year later, even the drunken uncles story had changed to fit the news' official version.
edit on 28-1-2011 by davidgrouchy because: (no reason given)
will the stepfather ever be identified as anyone important, or is he going to drop off the radar like the gun, and the lab results on all the dead birds?

Again people, failing to connect the dots.
The point of this, is as follows:
There will soon be a vote. 'Should the public have guns', in some form.
This case, as well as every other case that has come up recently (disgruntled V schoolboard man, JLL, etc)
will be FRESH in the minds of all of the parents and mothers and generally caring people around the world... "Hey... there was a gun in my daughters/son's classroom?"
Hmm... "if that persons parents can't keep their guns safe, and their kids are bringing them to school... my kids could be shot... I HAVE MY VOTE!!!!!!!"
