      Until Brian Goss grows up and gets responsible for his dogs, please avoid the Murphys Hotel. Animal abuse is not acceptable with his good neighbors. He is not above the law!!! Patronize any business except the hotel. Once he loses revenue, he will be a better neighbor!!! Pathetic is the word....

Dear California Students, Parents, Faculty:
Posted on: 2018-03-09 19:54:58   By: Anonymous
 
Dear California Students, Parents, Faculty:

Your Governor has advertised to every mass shooter out there that California schools are now a soft target that will offer no armed resistance to a shooter going for a high body count. He has “outlawed” the right of licensed carry and responsible defensive firearm possession on school campuses (Penal Code 626.9-11). That means that even those parents or staff that you might not even know about who are trained, qualified, and licensed to discreetly carry a weapon are no longer able to protect you at school, or even near school. Sorry.

That means that you will be on your own to teach your children, your students (even Kindergarteners), and yourselves how to outrun a bad guy with a gun at school. You (even teachers) will have to learn how to cower like a scared animal in a “safe zone” in the corner of a building and wait for law enforcement to arrive in 6 minutes, or 40 minutes in rural areas. You (even substitutes) will have to figure out how to block doors and windows, and throw chairs and fire extinguishers at the bad guy with the gun if he breaks into your classroom. Sorry.

The Governor encourages you to use your First Amendment right to spout off and demonstrate about how upset you are about violence in schools, while he chisels away the Second Amendment right of qualified, trained, and licensed adults who could have made an effort to protect you and at least slow down and distract, if not stop, the threat at school. Sorry.

How’s that feel for “safe schools” and optimized learning environment?
How’s that for saving lives and minimizing body count?
How’s that for school funding as budgets get channeled toward hardening our schools with anti-shooter measures, trauma first-aid supplies and lawyers instead of teachers, learning resources and supports?

Who reads and heeds “Gun-Free” signs? In fact, who eagerly looks for that sign at a school, a church, a business? Those who have a gun and ill intent and nothing to lose. Those who want a high body count and time to accomplish their evil objective.

California Governor – Is that the kind of “safe school” you want your grandchildren to attend? California Governor, have you surrendered your Second Amendment right that affords protection of your own family members and yourself?

Do the math: a trained good guy with a gun > a bad guy with a gun.

California Children: I am sorry that the adults are failing you….that politicians are putting you in grave danger when you go to the place where you are supposed to feel safe about learning and playing…that the most effective defensive protection has been taken from your schools…that even though I work with you and am trained to protect, I am no longer allowed to…that the world is telling you to shout and march, instead of providing you with staff that have the power and ability to protect you from evil, deadly threats.

California Parents and Teachers: In schools now, your voice to the Governor and “powers that be” is the only remaining defensive weapon against mass shooters. Do the research, then use it to convey what you believe to be the best, most effective measures to counter the mass shooter threat in schools.

Demonstrations and protests are not going to stop mass shooters. “No shooting, please” signs are not going to deter a shooter. Gun control is not going to prevent mass shootings. And the illegal revoking of Second Amendment rights from responsibly-armed citizens, is certainly NOT going to stop a mass shooter!

I express this on behalf of the kids I am responsible for in school and in my family and in my community. But our rights to protection and the safest possible environment in our schools needs to be much larger-scale – to all schools, families, and communities.
Cut, copy, paste, share this as you please. Save our freedoms, save our children.

    New Florida law as of today:
    "...allows the arming of school staff who are not exclusively classroom teachers, including librarians, media specialists, coaches and counselors. The program is optional at the discretion of county sheriffs and school district superintendents."

    I am a teacher and do NOT want guns on campus. I don’t care who you are. Schools are not a place for firearms.
    I do not want to think about the gun in a classroom next to me that a student could get ahold of, or that accidentally discharges. The first time some hot tempered teacher in Texas or Florida threatens a student by mentioning his gun (or worse) will be the end of this stupid decision.

      Yes, I think that's the point. We don't want guns on campus - and WHO is going to follow the rule? Law-abiding citizens - but not a "hot-tempered" mass shooter. So a school staff can defenselessly allow a mass shooter to do his thing for 9-10 minutes, get a body count of 2-17 staff and students. We're not talking about teachers signing up for a gun, and they get one! There'd have to be rigorous training, qualifying, and licensing.

      Would you rather have SOME chance of you and your students being protected by a trained and qualified colleague, or NO chance? With no defensive resistance, the mass shooter gets to make that choice.

        A camera in every classroom and stationed around the school site. This would provide fast knowledge as to where any problems are. It would also help to catch predator teachers and bullies. Parents are given a password to view cameras anytime through out the day.

        Fences with alarms when they are infiltrated. They would provide a fairly cost effective first line of defense.

        One way in with a metal detector just like at the county court house.

        PTA (Parent Teacher Associations) could accomplish this with ongoing fundraising and donations.

            Speaking of proactive...get signed up to be screened as a candidate to be a youth mentor through Calaveras Youth Mentoring. Seen some lives changed (child AND adult!) Or at least make sure you reach out to young people who seem disconnected or may not have a significant adult in their life
