My article in the Lansing State Journal.
« on: January 13, 2013, 12:54:05 PM »
My article in the Lansing State Journal.  They did a whole section on guns.


http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2013301130081


In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, the topic of allowing lawfully carried firearms into schools and other gun-free zones has been debated. This happens after every mass shooting that takes place in GFZs.


This time the shooting took place on a typical December morning. This day, a mentally ill 20-year-old man, who had killed his mother earlier in the morning, shot his way into their idyllic lives. This day, he shot and killed the principal when she tried to stop him using only her body as an ineffectual weapon. This man then killed five more adults and 20 children, between the ages of 5 and 8 years old, before killing himself.

My heavily edited article in the Lansing State Journal. 

Fixed it.

Did they contact you before they cut so much out?  Or did they ask you to down-size it to x number of words?

No of course not, they cut 200 words and never said anything to me.

Can you post the unedited version that you sent them?

The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible. Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959

Nice Job! I like that analogy... I'm going to use that in my discussions..
I carry a firearm because their are real threats in the world and when seconds count; the Police are minutes away!
