Update, Nov 12: Willamette Week reporter Beth Slovic comments: “It was a MEDFORD teacher not a Portland teacher, which means it was a Jackson County case not a Multnomah County case, Matt. Reading is for lovers.” Jackson County, clearly, is a hotbed for militant gun-toting maniacs, so I withdraw my comments about Portland being a dumb place to try and set a precedent in such matters. Thanks for doing the “research,” Beth. The “reading.” Peh.
Orginal post:A Portland teacher has lost her right to carry a gun to school. Now, would somebody tell me why on earth gun rights activists would pick a court in Portland as the venue to set a precedent on this issue? “Oh, shuuuuuure,” said the judge. “We here in Portland are just suckers for gun rights.” Here’s Wikipedia, stating the obvious:
A gun is a common name given to an object that propels another object or projectile.Guns are stupid. You Americans are stupid about guns. I was sitting in Citizens’ police academy a few weeks ago, listening to the group talk about how many guns they had at home, and how it was a great idea to keep one in a lock-box under the bed. And I thought, “YOU AMERICANS ARE STUPID ABOUT GUNS.”
Get over it. I promise, I promise, I am not going to try taking repossession of my colonial power the minute you get rid of them—which, let’s face it, is more about being better than you, anyway. And I don’t need a gun for that.
