While this is not necessarily a second amendment issue, it goes to one of the fundamental issues impacting the debate – the Progress Left is Irrational. A Florida student was suspended from school for “wrestled a loaded gun away from another teen on the bus ride home last week.”
The 16-year-old Cypress Lake High student in Fort Myers, Fla. told local law enforcement there was “no doubt” he saved a life after grappling for the loaded .22 caliber revolver being aimed point-blank at another student last Tuesday. “I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” said the suspended 16 year-old student. Authorities confirmed the weapon was indeed loaded and the arrest report stated the suspect was “pointing the gun directly” at the other student and “threatening to shoot him.”
When the student returned to high school the next day, he was told of his suspension. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?” he asked. The school’s referral slip said he was given an “emergency suspension” for being involved in an “incident” with a weapon. Lee County School District spokesman Alberto Rodriguez said in a statement that “If there is a potentially dangerous situation, Florida law allows the principal to suspend a student immediately pending a hearing.”
STOP – This is another excellent example of why it will be difficult, if not impossible, to logically discuss second amendment issues through out our country. The progress left, e.g. Alberto Rodriquez, can not make the right decision when a gun is involved, even if it save the life of another human being.
In this case, not only should the principal be fired, but the boy should be given a metal. Firing the principal would begin the process of “weeding out” the idiocracy we face, sending a message to everybody else to start thinking and stop reacting. The metal would provide enforcement of our core principles that we cherish human lives and will protect it at all cost.
This won’t be the case, however, and the status quo will persist. The Progress Left will continue to be an obstacle to any rational reasoning, both in situations like this, but also when it comes protecting our constitutional rights.
