  1. Arresting parents that dared try to enter the school. https://www.foxnews.com/us/texas-school-shooting-uvalde-parents-arrested-trying-save-kids
  2. I think the disagreements I have with those positions is what does "well regulated Militia" mean? And does it infringe on the "right of the people to keep and bear Arms"?
  3. Yesterday I couldn’t remember the name of the singer, but I remembered the Eurythmics… It’s Annie Lennox.
  4. No idea. #Warbl #44 X/6 (0%) ❌❌❌❌❌ ❌❌❌❌❌ ❌❌❌❌❌ 🎵❌❌❌❌ ❌❌❌❌❌ ❌❌❌❌❌ https://www.warbl.org
  5. One thing to put sworn officers at each school... But just some rando standing there? Is he going to do it every day? Could be sketchy.
  6. I think that mainly had to do with Vietnam... The government could conscript and send you across the world to go to war at 18, but you had no power to choose your representatives until 21. So I have the same view with guns. If they can strap you with an M16 at age 18, then you should be able to go to the gun shop and buy a civilian rifle.
  7. I'm about to go Be careful here. There are voting rights in America but no actual right to vote. There are laws that forbid limiting voting rights on account of things like race, sex, age, or poll tax... The Constitution defines the terms of representatives on account of elections for President, Congress... But states are given most of the authority to hold elections. Nothing says everybody gets a right to vote in every election. States could limit elections to party leaders, as long as they treat everybody fairly. Nothing forbids that. This is why I feel things like HB1 are important. I feel the backbone of our government is rooted in freely elected leaders by its citizens. We need to ensure that before somebody takes it away.
  8. Richmond is still so far away, 90 minutes or so when conditions are good. It's really the same situation north or south because of the Potomac. I-95 and Route 1 are the direct routes, or drive out west towards Manassas area and approach from there. I-95 is always jammed in this stretch because there aren't many other easier/faster options to get in and out of DC. Not much public transportation either. Metro is nowhere close to Woodbridge. It will take forever from the Maryland suburbs to get there.
  9. Just going to throw some facts out there: There are approximately 100,000 public schools in the US, and add another 30,000 or so private schools. LINK There are roughly 800,000 law enforcement officers in the US. LINK So there are enough sworn officers to do this. However, it will take almost 20% of the entire force to cover it all. What will it take away from current duties? Police is usually a function of local government. So it would take a group effort from some 20,000 agencies to decide to make it happen. Perhaps they could station an officer in each school, while also allowing them to respond to local incidents outside of the school? Right now, the situation in my district is we have one SRO who covers 3-4 schools in close proximity. They could respond in minutes if there is a situation. And they can also call for backup if needed. I'm not really against any of the ideas.... Let's consider background checks, gun control, mental health too.... The problem is everywhere. What happens inside schools is just an extension of what is going on in society. We could tamper down the amount of guns in use, so there's less violence in all of society. And also tackle the schools to make them more secure. I am really for all of those ideas, as I think it will take a multi-faceted approach.

  11. The last time he testified, we found out he was worried that thrown tomatoes could be lethal. So this one should be fun! He won't answer anything honestly and feign ignorance.
