LOL gotta love it when Jason Kilgore of Ceasefire Oregon sneaks out of his protected little home to write a post and express his stupidity to where others can comment.
People I’ve talked to are shocked to find out there’s no law against people bringing concealed, loaded handguns onto school campuses if they have a concealed handgun license in Oregon.
Betting he doesn’t do that much. Also I wonder if he points out that in places where the states DO restrict carry, you can carry across the street, legally, but that imaginary line…
Incidents have happened. This March, in Walsenburg, Colo., a volunteer track coach with a concealed handgun license was on school grounds when he accidentally shot himself with his recently purchased handgun, nearly dying. Last September, a security guard here in Oregon lost his gun while patrolling schools in the Salem-Keizer School District. As far as I know, the gun was never recovered. In both cases, the gun was legal on school grounds.
Well there we are, he has two dissimilar antidotes of bad things happening! We should obviously relinquish our rights!
Of course Mr. Kilgore in his limited wisdom wouldn’t call for bans of driving on campus despite multitudes more drunk driving incidents on any given campus….guns are different because they are different!
The solution that I and other advocates suggest is to mandate safe storage of guns at home to keep kids from getting unsupervised access to them.
Actually I know a person who disagrees with Jason Kilgore! BALDR ODINSON!!!
.Pro-gun activists like to claim that locking a gun is enough to keep it out of children’s hands, but most teens, when questioned away from parents, admit that they are able to get the key or know the combination.
Of course “Baldr Odinson” IS Jason Kilgore. Funny how “reasonable” he is! And even if the more conservative stance was the true one, he thinks you should lock up your guns…but not your blades!
If you wish to head off further attempts to allow guns in our schools, there are things you can do. Go to booksnotbullets.com and sign petitions for our local school superintendents, join the Million Mom March and Ceasefire Oregon in a rally against gun violence at the Eugene Water & Electric Board Plaza at 2 p.m. on May 13, call your state legislators, contact your school board, and help spread the word.
Tell them our children deserve to study and play in an environment free of firearms.
Good luck with that Jason. I don’t think any of those groups could fill a Minivan, but you go for that! Further I love how Gun Bans = “environment free of firearms”, because that’s always true.
I’ll close with a quote from the comment section from Ryan J. Daugherty:
Yeah…2nd Amendment TOTALLY doesn’t apply at public universities. But then, if it doesn’t, neither does the 1st Amendment…or any other Amendment…
Anti-freedom, not anti gun!
Oh BTW somebody is declaring “Abuse” for every pro-gun comment (of which all are, I assume its Kilgore himself) so if you got a moment follow the link and “vote up” all the comments to stop the abuse!
