Takes 2/3 of house....2/3 of Senate and 3/5 of stated to amend it.......

I’m not a math teacher (but I know a really old guy from down south that claims to be) but that makes for long odds in a nation that’s pretty much split 50/50.

Remember our country is not even 250 years old yet.  The US Constitution has been changed how many times ?

answer How the U.S. Constitution Has Changed and Expanded Since 1787 - HISTORY

Since the Bill of Rights was adopted in 1791, Congress has passed just 23 additional amendments to the Constitution, and the states have ratified only 17 of them.

 

Something tells me politicians are going to change it again and again.

Something tells me that the framers knew what they were doing when they made it very difficult to change the Constitution.

The current story now is that the outside door he went into was closed, but did not lock like it was supposed to.

I was referring to the interior classroom door.  Haven't heard how it was left open.

Same here....THIS is the issue that will spark a Civil War.....the dimnuts are too ignorant to see that......

I think they see it.  They want that.  Or at least a big false flag event to use to really weaken 2A.

It wasn't left open. The teacher removed the rock she propped it open with and closed it but the lock 🔐  didn't engage ....

Nope.  2 doors were breached.  Exterior door to get into the building.  Interior door to get into classroom.  Haven't heard how shooter breached classroom door that police couldn't get open for over an hour.

That's exactly what was briefed yesterday during their news conference. They said they didn't know why the exterior door lock didn't engage ...

I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE EXTERIOR DOOR.  I AM TALKING ABOUT THE INTERIOR DOOR to the classroom.

How did the shooter get through that door that the police could not?

He probably locked it from the inside after he entered the room ...

No 💩

How did he get into the classroom during an active shooter lockdown?  Did the teacher forget to lock her door as the shooting was going on outside.....right after the exterior door failed to engage?

At my wife’s school you can’t unlock the classroom doors permanently. The key unlocks and turns the knob to enter but the knob stays locked. They have a magnet on the frame to keep the doors open during school and pull the magnet when security issues arise.

That sounds like a good system. 

Just wondering how the shooter breached these 2 different doors during an active shooter lockdown.  It wasn't like he snuck in and started shooting.  Shooting was going on in the town.  School is put on active shooter lockdown.  Shooter then breaches 2 different doors in the school?

But the talk isn’t about school safety, it’s about guns. 🤷‍♂️

You can't "beat" the Mav01, you can only hope to contain him! According to some, they already assume my entire body is wrapped in tin foil.. 😆

Do you really believe that it’s just a huge coincidence that we had one school shooting of note (Columbine) prior to the implementation of “federal gun-free zones” but we’ve had at least two dozen since then? 

It's far more than that.  I would say it's in the hundreds by now.  Maybe Monday, I'll do the research on it when I have time.  The way it seems we have almost two dozen a year.  Many of them could have been prevented if the FBI wouldn't have sat on their hands when they saw the social media posts.

Fine. Let’s take down all the signs, including the ones warning about armed staff members and the ones that declare the school a gun free zone, rendering everyone there a sitting duck. Then the evildoers will have to guess which schools might shoot back. “Gun free zones” made a lot of people feel good because they thought they had accomplished something. Truth is, that policy made those places less safe, and Sandy Hook, Parkland, Santa Fe, VaTech, and Uvalde are the proof. 

Yep, just like those criminal watch signs on neighborhood streets.  Then if a neighbor shoots someone for acting suspicious after the suspect is beating on them they turn on the neighbor and want him brought to justice.
