Scratching A Writing Itch From Time To Time

Still Talking About Guns

Well, Indiana has a new law on the books.

It is now legal for a gun owner to drive onto any school property with his or her gun in the car. It is supposed to be kept out of sight. That is the only restriction.

The Second Amendment has been invoked and we all know there is no going up against that.

I took to Twitter after hearing the news of the Governor signing the bill into law and wrote this:

“Inside the schools, kids are doing drills about how to handle a shooter in the school situation. Outside, guns move closer.”

The thought that having guns in the parking lot might be a little too handy for a bad guy or an upset student were shrugged off. After all, they won’t be in plain sight.

I remain a little skeptical.  I have had cars broken into where nothing of value was showing. People checked the glove box, the console between the seats. You can gain access to most trunks from removing the back of the back seat. So these guns are not really going to be difficult to get to.

Actually, I am highly skeptical that there is any good that will come out of this new law. I will give the NRA credit for one thing. The money they spend buying politicians has had a good return for their investment.

The main question still remains:

HOW MANY MORE CHILDREN WILL BE GUNNED DOWN BEFORE SOMEONE STANDS UP TO THE NRA AND THE GUN MANUFACTURERS?

I am not going to stop writing about this. I just wish I could do more.

Peace.
