Gun Right Battle, Who’s Awake & Who’s Sleeping?

Indiana – -( For those who think our adversaries of the Second Amendment are resting or gone away better wake up.

They have not let this summer slip away. They are working like never before on preparing for the next wave of attack on gun owners.

I said a gun owner, that’s you if you’re reading this. The target is not just the gun itself but the legitimate firearm owners. There are now recent news stories showing groups of kids with the adults directing demonstrations for more gun control. Also, we now see mayors and governors of states signing new firearm restrictions and regulations, both on types of guns and the lawful purchasing of a firearm.

As I may have written before, I was tasked this past session [Indiana legislature] to introduce a resolution for a summer study for school safety. I willingly did so after being assured there indeed would be a study. Unfortunately, that was not one of the subjects that were selected. I had a clear idea of what I felt would have been a good approach on covering all the bases on legitimate school safety discussion by including professionals from 5 categories; educators, law enforcement, firearm instructors, building contractors, representatives of insurance companies that ensure our school districts along with the general public.

I’m concerned what the future holds for us this coming school year. However, there is one school superintendent in Indiana who has stepped up to make his district better prepared. His name is Jeremy Gulley, from Jay County. Jeremy is a Lt. Colonel in the National Guard as well and is developing a comprehensive program for his schools that also includes arming teachers and staff. He has approached many of the concerns that come along with this idea with much success.

Jeremy will be our guest at our November 24th Patriots meeting to explain what he’s doing. I hope you will mark your calendar for that date.
If anyone would like to help me on my reelection campaign, Margie and I would be very appreciative. We have a parade coming up Saturday morning, July 28th at Owensville at 10:00 (Central), the location at the old school. Wear your red shirts. Hope to see you that evening at the meeting.

since Israel years ago started arming their teachers, their school shooting have dropped to almost ZERO.
we need to do the same here big time.


Teachers and cops have taken the rap for the bad ones in each category. You are wrong to lump everyone into the same pile without knowing anything about the individuals. I know teachers that will bend over backwards to help students. I know cops that will use common sense to assess a problem and act accordingly. I know teachers that would volunteer to concealed carry in school, and already have their permits. I have shot with them.We talk about bad cops and liberal teachers until we are blue in the face but lets not be liberal leaning and stereotype them… Read more »


I will say that my state of Florida has made a big step in the right direction.
We now have a law that all elementary schools will have one armed guard and all high schools at least 2 armed guards.
The guards can be police, private security, school staff who are not full time classroom teachers, or volunteers.
There all kinds of training requirements I won’t go into here.
So now we will at last have good guys with guns in all our schools.

I am definitely for arming teachers and staff in the schools or hiring professional security people. The last thing that should be in the schools for security is law enforcement people. They do not nave the necessary training do to it being cop training cop which is stupid training stupid. They also do not have the intelligence necessary to do the job and most of them have pedophile tendencies.

Andy: I call BRAVO SIERRA on your blanket accusations about law enforcement officers and respectfully demand you provide proof to back up your claims. I teach in a high school of over 1200 students, with over 100 faculty and staff. We are assigned ONE SRO. One. He’s fantastic but he’s JUST ONE. I’m 100% for arming teachers, too, provided certain conditions are met: 1) The program is purely voluntary. 2) The identities of the armed teachers are kept secret. 3) Firearms MUST be kept on the teacher’s person AT ALL TIMES. 4) Strict firearms training is provided and qualifications are… Read more »

From a useless cop to a useless teacher. What a joke.

Jim Hovater

Andy: First rule to being a smartass: Make sure you’re smart. Otherwise, as in your case, you’re just an ass..


Well Jim, I can already tell you who you are up against, law enforcement, the general public, the insurance companies, and the indoctranators, there are no teachers anymore by the way, they’re indirect payees of the cia.
Good luck k but I’m afraid you’ll be drowned out and not listened to.

Jim Hovater

Bill, with all due respect, you’re wrong about teachers. I work with some of the most dedication people each day that anyone could hope to work with. Every day we strive, among teaching our respective subjects, to get our students to THINK. With the influences of social media, and little help or interest from parents, it’s a daunting task.


Bravo for what you do and for what you stand for!
Continue to focus your energies on positives and stay the course. Ignore the nay sayers – they will always be there – don’t give them the recognition they seek.

Andy Buckmichael

Graystone you are a suck ass.

Andy obviously stood in line more than once when God was passing out aasholes.
