Blaska’s Bring It! is not a sitting duck

Forget those signs that read “No Firearms on Premises.”
The sign at the cavernous entrance to the Stately Manor reads “No Sitting Ducks Here.”
The shooting deaths of nine people at a community college in the state of Oregon is a real tragedy. Something Must Be Done, the song goes. Blaska’s Bring It! blogge agrees! But what is the something that must be done?
Close the gun show loophole? Yeah, that should do it. (Snark alert!) Most states, including Wisconsin, already prohibit guns to domestic abusers and felons. Yes, crack down on crazy people. Just try to adjudicate craziness sometime. Jared Loughner’s parents tried to get help for the Tucson shooter, one of many who flew over the cuckoo’s nest.
Gun buy-backs? Give us your rusted … . Outright confiscation? (If it were up to the Brandi Graysons, the police themselves would be disarmed.) Suppose for a moment that good, law-abiding folks surrendered their arms to the local constabulary. Does anyone suppose the nut cases, crime families, meth cookers, and inner city gang bangers would relinquish theirs?
The problem at Kumquat College or whatever the hell it was is that the lone security guard was unarmed! No one could defend themselves!
Remember that heroic principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., trying to stop the shooter of those little children? The poor lady was shot dead through her outstretched hands because those hands were empty. The shooter stopped when he heard the sirens. Those weren’t grief counselors speeding to the scene; those were people with guns.
But why wait on the emergency dispatcher? Why don’t liberals, progressives, and socialists trust school personnel to carry weapons?
Ever notice? Most mass shootings happen in supposedly “gun-free” zones, such as schools, posted against firearms.
