Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The right to keep and bear arms is clear.

The right to free speech is clear, as is the right to equal protection under the law.  But in Ohio, Franklin School Superintendent Michael D. Sander does not seem to approve of any of these rights.  A gun shop opened up 200 yards from the school, and Mike Sander wanted it shut down.

From daytondailynews.com:

But Franklin Schools Superintendent Mike Sander was not too pleased with the district’s new neighbor.

“Unfortunately, it’s there across the street,” Sander said of the gun store. “We don’t like it and expressed our displeasure to the city manager’s office.”

It is clear that the ban on guns in schools, and the entire idiotic “zero tolerance” policy that followed it, have nothing to do with school safety, and everything to do with the indoctrination of students that guns are bad and the second amendment of the Constitution is a bad idea.

Perhaps the parents in Dayton agree with these sentiments.  No doubt some do, but it is likely that those that do are a tiny minority.   People are getting tired of the public schools being used to tear down the structure that the country is built on.

Dr. Michael D. Sander’s contract was not renewed at the last school district that he was superintendent of.  This is his first year at Franklin.

In a controversial decision, the Clinton-Massie school board voted 3-2 in June not to renew the contract of its superintendent, Dr. Mike Sander, a move which set off a series of events during the following weeks.

The article mentions one resident  who objected to the gun store, and mentions that the gun store owner says that he has not received a single complaint from an a concerned resident.

From the article:

“I know it’s a business, but it shouldn’t be that close to a school,” said resident Orville Griffith. “These teens might go across the street, buy a gun, then go across the street and shoot up (the school).”

Wetzel said that’s unlikely for a couple of reasons. First, his store isn’t open during school hours (store hours are 4 to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays). Second, to come into his shop, you must be at least 18 or with a parent or guardian, he said.

Wetzel said he hasn’t had one complaint from a concerned resident since opening.

Not one school shooting has occurred where the shooter went to a gun store, purchased a firearm, then immediately went to a school and started shooting.  However, there have been at least two cases where gun stores supplied firearms to people who immediately used them to stop violent crimes.

It is far more likely that gun stores in an area improve public safety rather than decrease it.

First, this clown was released from HIS PRIOR JOB IN A DIFFERENT SCHOOL SYSTEM.

Second, Franklin is NOT Dayton. Franklin is about half way between Dayton and Cincinnati.

Finally, it is UP TO YOU to properly educate your kids about guns. By all means, make every attempt to find out just what they are being “taught”, and not just about guns and the 2A. Get off your behinds and attend school board meetings, town council meetings, and every other governmental body meetings. BE THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM.

We all should be paying much more attention to the people that are in public positions and their thoughts and views on gun control. Especially on a local level. As you read what happen to me during the last election keep in mind I live in an extremely rural area where almost everyone owns a gun and hunts. Toward the end of this past October I had three people stop by my house running for my district rep seat. I ask them all the same question. Where do you stand on gun control. The Republican stated he believed everyone could… Read more »

I think the best part of this story is where he didn’t get his contract renewed. I will take this as a victory for our side. I guess my kids are lucky because I went to school with most of the the educators and administrators in our district , and we all like to hunt. Unfortunately , you cannot ask a person , in this case the superintendant ,about their politics and party affiliation. Just glad that the school board caught this mistake just in time.

Parents who have school age kids need to make sure and find out what their educators are teaching them or not teaching them about the 2A and firearms. You are obligated to re-educate your kids with the truth if need be.

At least the school board had the common sense not to renew this individuals contract. I for one will take it as a win. Little victories, one at a time.

Find out about your local school board. Who are they? Are they a bunch of bleeding heart liberals?
If so…VOTE THEM OUT !!! They are the ones that control who is teaching your kids.

Politicians are always saying education is key to future progress. What they really mean is future ‘Progressive’ indoctrination by educators like this school superintendent.

Everyone should care what this Ahole thinks. He is in a position to alter how children think based on what he thinks.
Those children will grow up with their perceptions skewed against 2A and will then vote YOUR rights away based on what HE thinks.

Still don’t give a sh*t what this fool wants ?
