“THE SECOND AMENDMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO SCHOOLS.”

“The Second Amendment does not apply to schools.”

Bruce Newcomb
Director Of Government Relations at Boise State University
February 28, 2014
Testimony before Idaho House State Affairs Committee

I don’t know which is worse;  The blanket WRONG statement by a governmental education bureaucrat, or the fact he IS said government education bureaucrat!!

I DO like Joe Huffman’s response to his statement, though:

“That’s odd. My copy of the Bill of Rights doesn’t have an exclusion for schools. If Mr. Newcomb’s does then that must mean he shouldn’t have a problem with him being convicted without a trial as long as it is done on school property.”

Rights are Rights!  When will the Left (who constantly trumpets the First Amendment in defense of radical Islamists, fascists and pedophiles) get that?

You can’t have it both ways!

And when is the Left going to get the concept that you ban guns in schools – you create massive targets-of-opportunity – school shootings occur…AND HOW IS THE PROBLEM SOLVED?

They call guys with guns to stop the problem!   Q.E.D.

  1. Well, those same schools don’t think the first, fourth or 5th amendment apply to students either. Mr. Newcomb needs to be made to understand that schools, particulary colleges and universities are public entities funded by public monies and should be required to toe the line when it comes to public laws. I don’t like the fact that AZ universities think they are seperate from the rest of the state and are treated as non-public entities, but that is slowly changing. I beleive the best way to handle this kind of statement is to slowly cut off the supply of public money and special priviliges that most college and universities receive. Make them put the money earned by the sprots programs back into the state coffers. Make every dime not needed for paying overhead be rolled back into the treasury. Make all the employee’s individual 1099 contractors instead of the gilded peacocks they currently are. Take away the special police forces most state campuses get etc.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
