Let’s see how many jobs Maryland’s gun-phobia creates; for that matter, let’s see how well the smug assumption of tougher gun control=fewer violent crimes works out.
Elsewhere, Chicago leads the way in the weenie-fication of America.
Administrators at a school in the South Suburbs of Chicago are up in arms over a state law (House Bill 0183) that requires schools to post small signs announcing that guns cannot be carried in schools.How about a big happy face with the words, “Arms are for hugging"?
Some school officials aren’t happy about the stickers because they contain a very basic image of a gun [emphasis mine – Paco].
“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.
Nolan stressed that she is very concerned with “safety and security” and concerned that, somehow, someone could wrongly interpret an image of a gun emblazoned with the universal sign for prohibiting something.
“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” Nolan also fretted.
She said she would prefer “something more subtle.”
