NEVER AGAIN ???????? SANTA FE...SHOOTING

NEVER AGAIN ???????
'It was happening everywhere, I knew it would eventually happen here, I was so scared' female student Santa Fe High School..
NRA - TRUMP - CONGRESS - GOVERNORS, LEGISLATORS, POLICE CHIEFS, AMERICAN PUBLIC....BLOODY HANDS..

Another HS shooting, 10 dead, 10 injured...again it happened again again again.
After Stoneman Douglas HS shooting people offered up prayers and condolences to the victims and vowed to do something to make students and schools - safer.

President Trump stunned the media and America by saying he supported some 'common sense' gun laws...then got fixated on 'arming teachers', which teachers rejected saying, give us more money for school books, supplies, counselors. He back tracked and essentially did nothing, since.

Trump went to the NRA National Convention and LOUDLY proclaimed that 'your 2nd Amendment Rights are under attack, warning them to be vigilant, supporting their Pro Gun Agenda, thus ignoring the majority of Americans that support 'common sense' gun laws. His rhetoric ignored that fact that more school children have been killed, this year, than soldiers in War zones.

'Good guy with a gun' - bull shit....remember the Sixth Precinct shoot out - a man brought a gun into the precinct and opened fire..on officers, who were caught off guard (because of a poorly designed counter / entrance - that I warned them about). He was killed but not before shooting officers...

TEXAS SHOOTING......

Gov call for 'all stakeholders' to give comments on how to protect children...including '2nd Amendment supporters - who value their guns' but didn't ask that anti gun advocates speak up....he later included them....as an afterthought.
But talk talk talk....again again again....the 'common sense' gun legislation is known...it is common sense, it needs to be debated in Legislatures and Congress and given a Vote - UP or DOWN so that voters know where the elected officials stand on each issue...

SROs - can't protect large schools....there is a proposal for 1 SRO per 1,000..students ????
It would be as advantages to put more money into Counselors for students, better food for students, school policies that encourage students - if they see something - say something - without be regarded as a snitch...A policy that is endorsed by students, school officials and parents....

Trump has failed to match words with actions...!!!!!! He claims to be the 2nd Amendment President - not the President of the citizens of the USA, most of which favor 'common sense gun control''. Governors, Legislatures, Congress and Trump must work to protect citizens...not the NRA....

Dave,
Thanks for the note. Just curious, what "common sense" gun law would've applied to the situation in Texas today?
Ken

Ken
Probably none ....age 21, no bump stocks, no assault rifles, no high capacity magazines, fully funding ATF, back round checks, but passage of these would have sent a message that Enough is Enough and Never Again (although it will occur again and again) and that the US is beginning to realize the mental health and deadly toll these shootings are taking on our collective psyche..
Trump, Legislators, Congress all decry the killings offering prayers but they must take real action to send a message that guns don't rule in America...

I say Trump because he is so aligned with NRA, (unlike Obama) that if he took a strong stand he could move the NRA and his base voters to support 'common sense' laws...that would START to make schools, churches, businesses safer places..
One commentator, Fox (?) talked about 1 SRO per 1,000 students - that isnt enough and in Detroit they dont pay enough to keep POs they have and the ones they graduate.

School teachers say give us more money for textbooks, etc...Schools need more Counselors and (see below - No bully policy, and report system)...
In Texas a SRO was shot...the shooter knew the SRO...so more police in schools may not be the answer...because timing and knowing the school schedule are important to a successful shooting.

'Good guy with a gun' - bull shit....remember the Sixth Precinct shoot out - a man brought a gun into the precinct and open fire..on officers, who were caught off guard (because of a poorly designed counter / entrance - that I warned them about). He was killed but not before shooting officers...

Cody High students to me - how the brought guns into schools thru metal detectors, buy wearing a large metal chain / medallion that set off the alarm and once they got thru the detectors the gun was in....

Please tell Fox News HQ stop using the shooters photo - oooohhhh so many times
(CBS was ridiculous), to psych disturbed publicity seekers - he's a hero....One photo ID enough - The public does not need to see a 'boy next door' photo ....repeatedly after he killed 10 people....It should be about victims...!!!!!!
I could go on on on....prayers and condolences will not stop a determined boy / man / woman with a gun...We must make using a gun to kill someone - a more serious issue... the slogan - Guns don't kill people, people kill people --- is wrong... David Malhalab

DUNHAM'S SPORTS - NO ASSAULT WEAPON ADS.....

DUNHAM'S SPORTS - NO ASSAULT WEAPON ADS.....

This is the 4th Week that Dunham's Sports has NOT advertised the sale of an - assault weapon - and AR-15 / AK-47 (etal) in their weekly Sunday supplement.

The efforts to get passage of 'common sense' gun laws is progressing very slowly, Florida and Vermont have passed laws since Stoneman Douglas High but the NRA is still powerful and blocking the effort, but many companies are shedding their relationships with the NRA, and Dunham's efforts is a good one.
www.dunhamssports.com tell them you appreciate their efforts.

TRUMP - ALL HAIL - TRUMP - HAIL HAIL HAIL......$30,000,0000

TRUMP - ALL HAIL - TRUMP - HAIL HAIL....$30,000,000.

Trump saw a Bastille Day Parade in France and wanted one too...
NOW, we the American Tax Payers, with our tax dollars, are going to pay for a HUGE military parade on Veteran's Day, in Washington, at a reported cost of $30,000,000 - dollars...

$30,000,000 ...30 million dollars...30 million dollars - but with NO tanks...nuclear missiles....anti ballistic missiles...but with a BIG plane flyover.....

OMG no missiles ????? How will the Russians, Chinese and yes - the French, know that we are a powerful country - Oh My...????
Trump has gotten his HUGE parade and we are getting the &%%$# BILL !
The Republican Party, lap dogs to our Glorious Leader, the Golden One, have abdicated their responsibilities ...and have failed to be a Constitutional Check on a vain, pompous, immature man who has demonstrated to the World - that America is NOT the leader of the Free World.

NRA BLOODY HANDS of INNOCENTS...

Wayne LaPierre, CEO NRA - Bloody Hands and Unrepentant
LaPierre stands with TERRORISTS / MURDERERS ...NOT A PATRIOT (says TRUMP)

Wayne LaPierre stood against the American People and the victims of School Massacres in a speech that blamed everyone but the NRA for the school massacres that are killing INNOCENT children and people across the USA.

The American People support common sense gun laws - ban on Assault Rifles (weapons of War), high capacity magazines (bullets clips), no sales via the internet, raising the age for buying a gun (18 to 21), ban 'bump stocks', better background checks, funding the AFT Bureau, curbs on selling guns at gun shows ..etc...

It is the NRA that stands guns / rifles and MONEY in hand that prevents the President, Congress and State Legislators from passing and enforcing laws that would protect Americans from gun massacres (not all massacres can be prevented - but it would reduce the numbers).
President Trump is ignorant in suggesting that for 'pay' teachers would love to be armed with a gun - in schools - and that should be a real consideration, as a solution. Wrong... Trump needed written talking points in his 'listening session' with students about suggestions to school massacres.

The 'founding fathers' would have been appalled to see that the NRA supports Americans owning an Assault Rifle (weapon of War) - we don't allow Americans to own gatling guns, machine guns, cannons, air to air missiles etc etc etc... so there is some common sense to restricting gun ownership - we must now move forward as we see that Assault Rifles (weapons of War) have become a 'clear and present danger' to the safety of the American people.

The NRA must join in the effort to protect the American Public and be a force for good gun legislation - not a door stop or a block to it.. or the American People must oppose them and their paid politicians and supporters.

HONOR POLICE OFFICERS - LET BLUE LIGHT SHINE - porch light


PUBLIC SAFETY... BLUE LIGHT.....porch light

America - Let the BLUE LIGHT - Shine ....

Honor all Law Enforcement Officers, who have been killed, died in the 'line of duty' - in Detroit, Dallas, Ohio, Kentucky, Florida and all around the Country.
Support the Family...their Departments...
We are all safe, when LEOs are safe.
God Bless...Them...

ps: NRA stands up against LEOs...the American Public...school children, parents, grandparents - you...
Tell Trump - Congress - Legislatures stand up against NRA... Save the Innocents...

pps: Hello
Massacres...in Florida...Las Vegas...
When I was a police officer, and Gov Engler closed mental health hospitals, I and the Detroit Police Dept and others became - taxi cab drivers - for the mentally ill and their families...
Now with the massacre of children in Florida - their is 'some' who ask 'what can be done about the mentally ill and how to prevent them from getting guns...

Here is an idea....
Every local law enforcement agency should have a REGISTER of people who their officers fill out 'mental health commitment papers' ...and families should be required to fill out a form when they call police for mental health transport or assistance. I was sometimes required to fill out temporary MH commitment papers - this information should go into a data base that can be shared with other law enforcement agencies and State Police - with authority to transmit this information to the FBI... and this information should then be used to screen for gun purchases and an early warning for LEO agencies of possible potential dangers, from an individual.

President Trump was an proponent (2000) of a ban on 'assault weapons' and a time delay to purchase guns - but he refuses to discuss this issue...now

The LEO mental health register should be a top priority for State Legislators, fully funded, as a first step to prevent US massacres.
