WTF ? ” Toddlers, however, would still be able to own a rifle or shotgun given to them by an adult, even under Schwartzkopf’s bill.”

Delaware bill would block teens from buying rifles, shotguns , The News JournalPublished 1:17 p.m. ET March 1, 2018 |

Democratic legislators in Delaware are looking to block teens from buying rifles, shotguns and other weapons, the latest in a series of gun control bills now working their way through the General Assembly.

The bill, introduced Thursday by House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf, D-Rehoboth Beach, would raise the legal age limit to purchase long guns and long-gun ammunition from 18 to 21 – matching a similar federal restriction on handgun purchases from licensed firearms dealers. 

“There’s no reason we should treat rifles or shotguns any differently,” Schwartzkopf said in a release.

The Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association – the local affiliate of the National Rifle Association – is opposed to Schwartzkopf’s bill, calling it an inconvenience to law-abiding citizens.

Interesting 

House Bill 330 would still allow a parent or guardian to purchase and then transfer ownership of a long gun to their child or sell one to them directly.

Well that defeat the purpose ! A kid could take the gun and parent could lie to cover their ass. Also, no provision for criminal charges against parents or guardian if their child kills someone! If a child wants to hunt with parent and guardian that us fine because the parent or guardian will be with them. The should be “no transfer of  ownership”. No reason for it! WRONG !!!! 

Federal law prohibits the possession of handguns by anyone younger than 18, with limited exceptions. Toddlers, however, would still be able to own a rifle or shotgun given to them by an adult, even under Schwartzkopf’s bill.

TODDLERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is Schwartzkopf of his rocker ????????? What democrat will vote for this?

Jury is in! Teachers to incompetent to carry guns in schools! Or at-least not social studies teachers

Armed Georgia teacher in custody after report of shots fired at high school 

An armed teacher who fired his weapon at a Georgia high school was in custody Wednesday afternoon.

No students at Dalton High School were hurt directly in the incident or remained in danger after they were evacuated as the crisis unfolded, Dalton police tweeted.

The teacher — identified as Randall Davidson, 53 — initially barricaded himself in an empty classroom at about 11:30 a.m. ET as confused students tried to get in, Dalton police spokesman Bruce Frazier said at a news conference. There were then reports that a gun was fired. Davidson, a social studies teacher, surrendered after 30 to 45 minutes, police said.

 

Breaking News! Delaware State Legislators have draft bill changing age from 18 to 21 to purchase long guns,

Paul Baumbach kilroy, the 18 to 21 bill has already been drafted, and I am a cosponsor. I expect it to be released today. The military-style firearm ban bill is being worked on by my colleagues, in partnership with the Governor, and I expect to cosponsor it, too. These concerns are being handled. If I were to ‘move the law’ by jumping in front of my colleagues with my own bill, I would confuse the matter and jeopardize the bill’s chance of passage. I care about policy success more than credit and spotlight.

The above is from Facebook engagement with Delaware  State Representative Paul Baumbach (D).

I’ve been dogging Paul on Facebook to put-up or shut-up ! The time to stop taking pot-shot at Washington and Trump is over for local legislators. Our local legislators have the power of the pen to make change now.

Don’t get me wrong! I don’t feel its right that many GOOD young people have to be penalized by changing age 18 to 21 to purchase a long gun. But its the lesser of two evil. Though I have great concerns about assault-style weapons. I feel our political embattled culture re: concerns with disarming Americans is dangerous! The complete breakdown in Florida with the school, state, federal and local authorities failed those students and the community.  

I feel we’ll see many legislators voting to change the 18 to 21 on purchase of long guns voting no on a rushed ban on assault-style weapons. Also, we need to address the failures in treating and intervention of children / students with mental-health  issues. 

Deputy Peterson held thing down until SWAT got there. Wanted to make sure SWAT had keys to school

Florida officer Scot Peterson defends response to Parkland shooting 

“Let there be no mistake, Mr. Peterson wishes that he could have prevented the untimely passing of the seventeen victims on that day, and his heart goes out to the families of the victims in their time of need,” DiRuzzo said.

Their time of need was when you tucked you tail up your ass coward. 

The statement quoted Peterson saying that when the gunfire first erupted, he “thought that the shots were coming from outside,” which was why he “took up a tactical position.”

LOL ! What was he going to do ? Call in an air-strike.    

Peterson was the first member of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office to report the gunfire, DiRuzzo said. He also gave the local SWAT team keys to the building where the shooting happened, drew diagrams of the campus for them, and helped school administrators access security videos, DiRuzzo said

More proof Peterson coward-down or at best a good hunting dog pointing the way.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime died in the shooting, told MSNBC Monday that “everybody’s right to be enraged” at authorities. “They failed my kid, they failed the 16 other people,” he said.

Asked what he thought of Peterson’s response, Guttenberg replied, “I’m sorry, I’m not feeling sympathy for you.”

 

Janus Vs AFSCME rooted in teacher complains goes before Supreme Court today

Supreme Court to rule on power of public employee unions 

“WASHINGTON — A case the U.S. Supreme Court takes up Monday is likely to deal a crippling blow to unions representing millions of the nation’s public employees.”

“The justices will decide whether state government workers who choose not to join a union must still pay a share of union dues to cover the cost of negotiating labor contracts.”

“The court deadlocked 4-4 on the same issue two years ago in a case brought by a group of California teachers opposed to paying the dues. Since then, conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch has joined the court, and he seems all but certain to provide the fifth vote opponents need to strike the fees down.”

Wow I didn’t know a group of California Teachers (Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association et al)  charged up this hill before ended in a deadlock leaving a rope line for the next attempt by Mark Janus, child support specialist in the Illinois state family services agency. So it looks like the dynamics of the U.S Supreme court has changed to a more favorable environment for Mark Janus attempt to not be forced to pay union dues. Going to be interesting!

Of course this will be spun as all President Trump’s fault if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Janus. However, as you can see a group of California teachers fired the legal shot heard around the world.

If Supreme Court favors Mark Janus, I don’t think it will have an impact on Delaware local district level school teachers’ association. Though the loss of some union dues could impact the association ability to retain legal council.

I have a hunch if anything, district level teachers will be more than willing to pay their local association dues. I am not sure how this would impact state level teachers’ associations like DSEA? Honestly, I wouldn’t think it is mandatory for local association members be required to join state level associations.  In defense of organized labor, if you want to enjoy the fruits (benefits) secured by organized labor associations negotiation with management then you should pay.    

Sheriff Israel refuses to step! Will Stoneman students wrap their love around him?

Washington (CNN)Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Sunday he would not resign in the face of criticism about his agency’s response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

“Of course I won’t resign,” Israel said when pressed on the issue by CNN anchor Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

 

CNN Jake Tapper refuses to put a countdown clock for protest to force Broward County Sheriff Israel to resign! @cnn @foxandfriends

 

Broward County Sheriff Israel  played the bias CNN puppet at the CNN Town Hall meeting know about his coward deputies and let Rubio take a beating! by a punk-ass kids handed a CNN approved script to call Rubio out on NRA donations. 

CNN had an on-air count down to town hall meeting clock! How about an on air clock calling for Sheriff Israel’s resignation Jack Tapper?  Yes or no? Are you going to do it? Come on Yes or no ?   

Delaware Governor Carney sets the stage for kicking the can down the road. Delaware legislators have a powerful assault weapon at their disposal ! AKA the pen! Will they find the ” Delaware” courage or keep blaming President Trump?

If Delaware waits on Washington nothing will get done. There is nothing stopping Delaware legislators to address anything! No one with concerning mental health issues deeming them a threat to themselves or others should be permitted to purchase a gun or own a gun.

Sadly the system in Florida had a complete catastrophic breakdown including police engagement and FBI. HOWEVER, we need to move forward to address the complete concern for public school safety.

Delaware Governor Carney wants to ban the sale of assault style weapons, Well here is a year’s debate on which guns are consider assault style. All semiautomatic weapons? Shot guns holding multiple shells beyond the ones in the barrel.

Why didn’t Carney include change the age from 18 to 21 in purchasing long rifles? This could be done next week if state legislators had the courage. Carney set the stage for kicking the can down the road.

As far as on campus school security. SRO’s need to be carrying rifles before the school opens and before first bell at end of the day. Local police need to take these times and incorporate in their patrol patterns and become highly visible around schools.

Trump has nothing to do with Delaware legislators doing whats right for Delaware. Invoking Trumps name in any of the conversation is just a deflection of those Delaware legislator lacking the courage to do what is right.

There were cowards within the Sheriff’s department in Broward County using children as human shields to protect themselves and we don’t need cowards in Dover who don’t want to do their jobs with weapon of choice aka their pens.

Coward in Broward ! SRO leaves kids to fend for themselves. Sheriff Israel holds of tell press until after CNN’s Rubio slaughter

Sheriff: Armed officer at school never entered building during shooting 

The armed officer stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., resigned Thursday after an internal review found he did not enter the school during last week’s deadly shooting.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel announced deputy Scot Peterson chose to resign after Israel suspended him without pay.

“Scot Peterson was absolutely on campus through this entire event. He was armed. He was in uniform,” Israel said at a press conference.

UN-F”ING Believable  ! 

“After seeing video, witness statements and Scot Peterson’s very own statement, I decided this morning to suspend [him] without pay pending an internal investigation,” he continued.

Israel said Peterson chose to resign as he had met the necessary requirements for retirement. The sheriff noted that the investigation would continue.

THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED 

CNN KILLED THE CONVERSATION FOR UNITY !

CNN wasted no time to go on the offensive targeting Senator Rubio and NRA  after the town hall meeting,

CNN used the students and the Stoneman community to fuel their continue hate towards Senator Rubio, President Trump and the GOP.

Little Alfonzo will be a one hit CNN and wonder! He is out of focus and plays into the hand of the CNN hate! Shame on CNN.

Sad day in American when CNN controls the conversation!  

CNN Stoneman puppet show is disgusting

CNN is nothing more than an ambulance and creating an environment of continue of hate ! An opportunity to forget about red and blue and come together to find solutions has been soured by attacks on Senator Rubio. Personal attacks on Rubio by  Stoneman students was very disheartening.

Delaware Dad tells DSEA President like it is re: Zero Tolerance

Out of Tragedy Must Come Collective Action February 19, 2018 / DSEA President’s  Corner

Draconian penalties for students who make terrible mistakes – such as bringing a weapon to school without harming anyone – are a bulwark of structural racism and the main driver of the school-to-prison pipeline.

Affluent white parents simply send their children to private schools or move to a new district if their children make this dangerous, but historically common mistake. Poor black parents have their children’s education opportunities drastically reduced or cut off, and those children end up being harmed for a lifetime. Many of them end up in prison or in a life of crime, which could have been avoided by more humane treatment of mistakes which cost no lives.

This is the reality of our time. Advocating for ever harsher punishments for children in the name of reducing crime and suffering will inevitably create more criminals, more suffering. It is a simple fact that children do not make decisions based on comprehensive understanding of laws and consequences, and will make mistakes. As long as we pursue “zero tolerance” and economic and social factors give affluent white kids the ability to avoid consequences the poor cannot escape, we create more prisoners, more criminals, more suffering, and that process will primarily harm children of color.

Zero tolerance makes zero sense when applied to children. Mistakes that cost no lives are fundamentally not a problem that should be addressed by draconian, racist, counterproductive punishments.

I agree 100% with Delaware Dad! And not keeping a grip on the causes of the latest crisis in Florida is counter productive. In Florida we had a mental health services and FBI breakdown.  Treating every student behavior infraction as a potential risk of deadly violence demonstrates public schools don’t have the right tools to be a partner in addressing mental health needs of students. As for minority students, we have an epidemic of death and destruction on the streets of America and Delaware. Gun violence on the street is out of control and often the victim is young black males. Sadly it takes events such as in Florida where a massive deaths take place we rally together. But rest assure, far more black young men and girls are killed on the streets of America each year. Perhaps minority teachers, staff and students walkout of school in protest. Hopefully students can make “their” voices heard without manipulation of the extreme political left who attack the president and see no wrong in children in social media calling the president an MF’er. 

Zero tolerance for deadly weapons in schools are one thing. But schools going on the offensive and deeming every negative word or actions of a student as potential life threatening raises concerns about our schools ability to effectively make real change in overall school safety as it related to these terrible incidents.
