VA – GUN SAFETY – Every door to be replaced at Amherst Co. schools to provide more safety (VIDEO)

Amherst County schools are replacing every door in each school to provide more safety.

NAT’L – GUN SAFETY – Why I Invested in a ‘Smart Gun’ Company

During the heart of TOMS’ End Gun Violence campaign in 2018, I received an email from a 21-year entrepreneur named Kai Kloepfer. Kai described his vision for Biofire?—?an early-stage startup incorporating biometric sensors into handguns. Unlike traditional handguns, which anyone can fire, “smart guns” eliminate the possibility of children or unwanted intruders operating an owner’s gun. Did Biofire immediately strike me as a compelling investment opportunity? NOT exactly…I’ve always had an aversion to guns: They…

VA – GUN SAFETY – Let’s keep our heads (and MAGA hats)

LAST WEEK’S CONFRONTATION BETWEEN AN ARMED MAGA-HAT-WEARING TRUMP SUPPORTER AND AN APPARENT TRUMP OPPONENT WHO ALLEGEDLY THREATENED TO ASSAULT HIM AT THE WYOMING VALLEY MALL SHOULD FILL ALL OF US WITH DREAD OVER WHAT COULD HAPPEN IN THE NEXT 10 MONTHS AS LUZERNE COUNTY BECOMES A FOCAL POINT OF ONE OF THE MOST HEATED PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS IN AMERICAN HISTORY. NO AMERICAN SHOULD BE THREATENED FOR EXPRESSING THEIR POLITICAL BELIEFS WHETHER ON A HAT, ON A T-SHIRT, IN WRITING OR IN SPEECH. AND ARGUMENTS ON THE FAR LEFT THAT A “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” HAT IS ANALOGOUS TO A KKK HOOD ARE DANGEROUSLY INFLAMMATORY AND DESTRUCTIVE. THE VICTIM IN THIS CASE WAS LEGALLY ARMED AND ALTHOUGH THE MALL HAS A NO-FIREARMS POLICY, HIS CARRYING OF A CONCEALED WEAPON WOULD ONLY BE CRIMINAL IF HE DISOBEYED ORDERS FROM MALL OFFICIALS TO LEAVE THE PREMISES.

DC – GUN SAFETY – Myth busted: Campus carry never caused that increase in violence liberals predicted

The argument in favor of arbitrarily revoking the Second Amendment rights of college students, as is done in dozens of states, has ostensibly been rooted in safety concerns.

NAT’L – GUN SAFETY – How to keep schools safe? We’re focusing our time, energy and money on ‘all the wrong things,’ experts say (VIDEO)

LAST WEEK’S DEADLY SHOOTING AT SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL IN SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA, PROMPTED CALLS FOR THE INCREASED INSTALLATION OF METAL DETECTORS AT SCHOOLS. SAFETY EXPERTS SAY THAT’S PRECISELY THE WRONG RESPONSE. THERE’S A CHEAPER, MORE EFFECTIVE APPROACH, BUT IT’S A TOUGH SELL.
