agree about Kennesaw and i'd like to see Vermont's model applied elsewhere.
multiple "safest state" awards to match.
i really have to laugh at the whole proposal as a Bahamian friend explained it like this to me recently ... don't worry, guns aren't going anywhere so long as the US wants drugs and Mexico wants guns.
immigrants aside, i believe he has a valid point
ppl should be focusing on E. Holder ... the gun runner at the top
School security is not even a State Government issue, but a local issue. But that's just my opinion.

This may be the beginnings of the Second American Civil War. From what I can tell, the "Silent Majority" is starting to wake up to how many of our rights are being infringed upon. If there is a gun ban put into order, they'll need the military to carry it out. Being ex-military, I don't see very many of our men and women in uniform actually carrying those orders out, and if they're ordered to shoot American civilians, I believe there will be a Military Coup.
I don't think our borders should be closed (unless I'm misunderstanding what is meant by "Closed Borders") but, we do need to do something about illegal immigration. America is a nation of immigrants, but they need to be legal immigrants. If anything, maybe there should be a mass deportation of illegal immigrants, but I have no idea how that would be carried out, maybe it's a bad idea. Illegal immigration has basically become legal slavery. I do not blame those who have escaped the dangers of their country and come here. But, I do think that they should do it legally.
It's high time that we start to challenge the infringement of our basic rights as Americans.
