“Let’s face reality. If you limit the capacity of a gun clip, all you have to do is get more clips. It makes as little sense as telling New Yorkers they can’t buy a jumbo drink when in fact they can buy two smaller ones."
About the guns
“I don’t have a problem with outlawing military type assault weapons. Those guns are not legal to hunt with. They are designed for military use and we are citizens. It doesn’t take a genius to convert one of those semi-autos to fully automatic status."
“If you have a mentally challenged child in your home, why would you have a lot of weapons in that house? That’s the big gorilla in the room that everyone is ignoring."
“Given the times, the stress and the challenges, I want to applaud all of those who were involved in getting our mental health facilities back to Moultrie."
“We have volunteer police officers , fire fighters, neighborhood watch. Why not have trained security volunteers (to save taxpayer money) in schools with a concealed weapon. No intruder or student knows who the person is or where he is. Kinda like incognito air marshals on airline flights."
“Is it a law that dogs can't poop on the courthouse lawn? If not it should be. My granddaughter was playing on the lawn and there was a pile of dog poop. If you use the courthouse lawn as your dogs bathroom, please clean up behind them."
The door issue
“If the door at that school is now closed and locked. Then Rant and Raves was the perfect place to complain. If it isn't, then someone needs to lose their job."
“Why not install ‘panic hardware’ on all doors that lead outside or rooms you don't want entered from an outside area."
“Someone in R&R yesterday said ‘let's focus on the real killers, obesity’. That's like the old saying, ‘gagging on a gnat and trying to swallow an elephant’! The REAL killer that is getting a free pass is the drug, alcohol!
What if 30 jumbo jets went down in one year and killed everyone on board? There would be outrage! Yet that is what's happening with DUI deaths in the US. Each year 10K-11K are killed in alcohol-related accidents. Now that's a REAL KILLER for you!"
“You say I don't need military-grade weapons or armor to protect my home. Why not? If someone breaks into my house to steal or do me or my family bodily harm why would you care what I use?"
