Sheila Jackson Lee with a good idea???

So this morning on the way to work I am listening to the local talking head sorta making fun of Lee for an idea she had for safety in schools. Truth be told she wasn't far off from what I think is a great idea.

Her idea:

Door to buzz into the school with bulletproof glass. = very acceptable
Steel doors on classrooms that drop down when an alarm goes off. = I have a slight variation on that.

My suggestion is replace classroom doors with steel doors. You can put wood veneer on it or whatever to make it appealing to the eye but nonetheless a steeldoor with a bulletproof glass window.

Then you install locks that are remotely activated. These are not uncommon. If an alarm is triggered the locks automatically engage thus securing the kids behind a locked steel door with bulletproof glass.

I think this is a very good idea and have to commend her for at least mentioning solutions and not saying "take guns away" in the same sentence.

The fact that you want to make it about "assault weapons" instead of lazy parenting, poorly applied medical treatments, and overmedication of our society shows where your priorities are as well.

Which weapons? The kid used a glock and a sig sauer. They are pistols, not "assault weapons". Are you stating people should not have access to handguns as well?

I grew up in a small rural community. Sheriffs had a Posse that was made up of unpaid volunteers to help out with manpower when county fairs or things like that needed more manpower that what he had on the payroll. Low risk of problems but still keep personnel on site to stabilize the situation until authorities arrive if needed. This keeps the paid deputies doing their normal job. The posse were required to qualify with their sidearms and received some training on the basics. I think something like this could help in more ways than one. Encourages community involvement, provides an armed deterrent and gets some authority on scene faster. Programs like this and a ban on "un-armed victims" zones would do more than all the anti-gun legislation ever dreamed of.

Not all posse members are "wannabe's". In the town I grew up close by most were upstanding members of the community.

Don't care. We don't need some minimally trained yokel with a gun anywhere near our schools and kids.

I don't think any weapon should be able to fire more than six rounds before reloading. Sure, people are still going to shoot other people, but a lot of the assholes bent of statement massacres are emboldened by the fact they can expend lots of ammo without reloading. I can see no sane reason why a hunter, sport shooter or home defense owner needs more than six rounds.

Fight the good fight pass some nonsense laws that will accomplish nothing but hassle law abiding gun owners, and make idiots feel good about themselves~

Because maybe the guy trying to kill you and your family has seven or seventeen? Or thirty? You know, that criminal who doesn't give a crap about the law?
