Another tragic school shooting and there will be those who want to further stop gun sales. That is not the problem. When I went to school in the 1940s we routinely brought our guns and shells to school so we could pheasant or duck hunt after school. We would throw our guns and ammunition in the back seat of a friend’s car so we could immediately hunt after school. I remember one occasion where our school superintendent walked from his house on his way while admiring my shotgun. I might add there were no locked cars. No one would even consider bothering our guns.
What is the difference today. We have surrendered to the ACLU and taken any religion out of our schools. Any mention of God in schools is not allowed by most schools. One of the most important factors in school violence since 1962 was when some left wing judges sided with their ACLU buddies.
We should pass a state law allowing reference to God as perfectly acceptable and expected. In a generation we would see violence drop dramatically. We should include in our legislation requiring all lawyers practicing in Minnesota be required to register if they are or ever have been a member of the ACLU. Our residents could boycott those lawyers out of business If that doesn’t work we will soon have our troops returning from our wars and we can put them to use cleaning up our society problem to rid us of the legal scum.
