What crazy logic do you use to say that which hurts nobody, can be done without even thinking about it, and would occur without any victim, is a VIOLENT crime? Of course Iím talking about changing what ought to be lowered to not a crime at all (carrying a firearm on school property without any other incriminating action) into a violent felony
. I truly would like to know the logic (not some emotional appeal) that would cause you to go to such extremes. Honest citizens ought to be able to carry firearms nearly anywhere without mala prohibita restrictions. Having a firearm (just having one) is not, nor can it be mala in se; even our beloved Virginia has put into place a right to keep and bear arms. Our constitution knows that those that are willing to give up liberty for security deserve neither, and will lose both. Are you so devoid of knowledge of history that you do not?
Security can only be obtained by virtue and liberty.
