A lot of debate is taking place over the new “guns everywhere” law in Georgia. Although gun owners in the state are pleased with the expansion of Georgia’s concealed carry laws, liberal radio show host Mike Malloy is far from it. He is so angered that he said he would like to invite an NRA Board Member to his home and shoot him using the “Stand Your Ground” Law in defense.
Once the state’s Safe Carry Protection Act receives the governor’s signature, concealed carry will be permitted in schools, bars, churches, and sections of the airport that are outside of the security parameter. Malloy’s reaction was anything but friendly OR logical.
[The] organization founded by Gabrielle Giffords…the former Arizona Congresswoman…who was critically wounded in a mass shooting in 2011, she calls it “the most extreme gun bill in America.” The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere….I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real $&#^*!@ threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can. Ha ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha ha!
Seems to me that Mr. Malloy lost his ability to debate intelligently so he resorted to threats. That’s pretty typical when you face a person who bases his arguments on emotion instead of facts. Once again, another example of a liberal who has no knowledge of guns or the laws the govern them.
So tell me Mr. Malloy, why are you more concerned that law-abiding gun owners (who I assume have proper knowledge and training) will abuse the second amendment when you’re the one publicly making threats on a person’s life? But I thought you were AGAINST gun violence!?
High school student Shane Kinney was placed in on-campus suspension in New York for wearing an NRA Pro-Second Amendment t-shirt. School officials claimed that the shirt was disruptive, inappropriate, and in violation of the GICSD Code of Conduct. After the school administrator acknowledged the shirt, she immediately demanded he turn the shirt inside out or place duct tape over the NRA logo. When the student refused, he was then sent to the principal’s office where his parents were contacted.
Now, I am interested to learn the school’s logic behind punishing Shane for wearing a t-shirt supporting the NRA and the 2nd amendment. Students are given a right to free speech, are they not? I understand that schools implement certain limitations in terms of clothing if they believe the clothing contains vulgarities, promoting drug-usage, gang relation, or other forms of dangerous conduct, or if they have evidence showing that the shirt will likely cause a disruption. In some cases, public and private schools may go as far as to ban logos of any sort. However, at this high school, none of the following apply. There is nothing vulgar about the NRA or the second amendment. His shirt was not promoting gun violence, suicide, homicide, drug usage, gang relation, or dangerous conduct of any kind. He was wearing a t-shirt in support of an organization that he is involved in. So what? Even with all of the above out of the way, the school still claimed that the shirt was disruptive. How so? Because it has a rifle on it? It’s not like he was standing on the cafeteria tables preaching to the student body about shooting people. Come on now! If anything, another student can openly disagree with his organization of choice which can lead to a debate. Big deal. Shouldn’t we be encouraging students to have an opinion and to stand up for what they believe in?
The parents were up in arms over this because no where in the handbook did it say that their kid could not wear a t-shirt from an organization. The closest offense they could find was the schools ban to encourage illegal or violent activities. Last time I checked, the NRA is neither violent nor illegal. Taking away a student’s right to the first amendment? Now that I call illegal.
