What if the perp would have been shooting live rounds? Would the staff's 'concern' protect students from bullets or would the students rather have an armed good guy to protect them?
Imagine how secure the students would have felt if a teacher ushered them into a classroom for safety then pulled out her concealed Glock to help defend their lives?
That is REAL security but the campus currently outlaws it. Why? I suspect it has to do with the 'feelings' of unicorn-petting, Utopia-dreaming, delusionally naive liberals who refuse to face the reality that evil exists in this world and it has to be FOUGHT. It cannot be appeased. It will not go away if you just ignore it. You have to defeat it.
The La Crosse City Council has again confused its residents, this time about the parking rules after a snowfall.
City council member Bob Seaquist did not help students or faculty when he voted to change rules about warnings and fines. After each snowfall, I’m sure there are flared tempers and confusion.
That is bad enough, but when the city creates a problem, it’s even worse.
In the past, cities would note with pride their wide and beautiful streets. Yet La Crosse narrowed about six blocks of Main Street west of Losey Boulevard. The street is now barely wide enough for two lanes of traffic when cars are parked along both sides. The city also designated a bike lane on each side of the street. With a bit of snow, I can imagine it was a mess.
I am requesting that you do the job we elected you to do (like you have been so far) and defend our city from the actions of this small hysterical mob. This sign ordinance is a destructive mess of arbitrary and abstract ideas.
The sizes/heights/distances for example were just thrown in and amended arbitrarily, from 40' to 20' to 14'. Distances from 350' to 1200' just on a whim and comments by hysterical NON-residents...
This City Council is out of control! Our elected officials' duty is to protect us from mobs trying to impose their ideals on us, not to HELP them.
The business community is prepared to petition for a referendum to throw out this sign ordinance, so I'm sure you want to be on record as vetoing it.
I will be introducing ‘The Midnight Rule Relief Act of 2012.’ This legislation prohibits federal agencies from proposing or finalizing costly regulations during an outgoing President’s lame-duck period.
The annual regulatory burden on the economy is $1.75 trillion. Another 11,000 regulations have been issued since that number was calculated, and another $220 billion of regulations are in the pipeline under this Administration. This legislation would provide relief to job creators by creating some sense of stability.
Significant regulatory actions should be proposed and put in place before Election Day. Too often, Presidents wait until after the voters have spoken to impose new and costly rules - rules that the people ought to know about before going to the polls. This bill ensures that except for some specific circumstance, new major regulations will not be imposed once a President has become a lame duck.
