A bit of good news--the Oregon school district that wants to continue to mandate that its schools be victim disarmament zones was rebuffed in its attempt to deny Shirley Katz her day in court.
After a day-long hearing, a judge said he would not dismiss her lawsuit against the school district.I find the opening of the article rather interesting.
Jackson County Circuit Judge G. Philip Arnold said he would issue a written opinion on Ms Katz's claim that Medford School District policy prohibiting teachers from carrying weapons on school grounds violated state law.
As America reeled from a series of shootings and school massacre plots, Ms Katz won the first round of her legal bout for the right to carry her 9mm Glock pistol on to school grounds.Personally, I find this demonstration of the reality of the threat of psychopaths in schools to be the best illustration of the utter evil of mandating helplessness, but why do I have the sneaky suspicion that the author of the article was trying to make an entirely different point?
I am pleased to see that the Second Amendment Foundation is supporting Ms. Katz. Interestingly enough, though, I cannot find any indication that the NRA is. Oh, never mind--that would apparently violate the NRA's principles:
First, we believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns in America's schools, period ... with the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained security personnel.Yeah--that has been working beautifully--now if only you could get the psychos on board with the plan, Wayne.
Maybe the NRA can file a legal brief in support of the school district's position. Heck, maybe Wayne and Paul Helmke can write it together.
