Can We See Those Job Descriptions Again? I Don’t Remember Seeing That..

Most teachers are great people. They’re like nurses in a lot of ways. They want to help people, particularly children, learn things that they think is really fun, interesting, and helpful for life. (I know what you’re thinking and just don’t even go there. We all have different experiences.) It’s a challenging job. They haveContinue reading “Can We See Those Job Descriptions Again?

Deadly Weapons

Let’s talk about weapons. Legally speaking, a vehicle is considered a “deadly weapon”. If you really want to get nit picky about it, a lot of things can go on that list (the hands/feet of a black belt martial arts master, sharp knives, bats, etc.) But we will stay with these two for clarity ofContinue reading “Deadly Weapons”

Constitutional Carry Turns Into Controversial Carry

In April of this year, Brian “Brainless” Kemp signed into law the bill that made it possible for darn near anyone to carry a firearm on their person.

But our Very Own State Senator did exactly that and he did it in spite ofContinue reading “That’s The Logic Anyway”

Gunpowder and Lead : Recipe for Murder and Mayhem

I have no idea which one of the Chinese invented gunpowder, but I heartily wish they had not. It has been sorely abused in the centuries since. I rather imagine that whoever it was never dreamed that it would cause so many death and heartbreaks as it does. In a way, it is rather likeContinue reading “Gunpowder and Lead : Recipe for Murder and Mayhem”

Predictable, Preventable, But Can We Find The Strength To Act?

Two massacres in one week. Older people in a grocery store in one place just minding their own business. Then just a few days later, 4th graders in a single classroom in TX were gunned down. Motives are unclear, but it is clear about a few things. These shooters had help. Like it or not,Continue reading “Predictable, Preventable, But Can We Find The Strength To Act?”
