Newtown family lawsuit…

A Newtown family has filed a 100 million dollar lawsuit against the state claiming that they failed to protect the children from “forseeable harm.”  This family did NOT lose a child on that horrible day.  In fact, they have a healthy, breathing 6 year old child at home with them.  That’s a lot more than those other 20 sets of parents have.  Those parents had to bury their children right before Christmas.

And let’s look at this “forseeable harm” shit.  (Sorry about the language, but I’m pissed off.)  I would love to know how this horrific event was forseeable.  This Lanza kid shoots his mom at her home and then drives to the school to shoot kids.  As far as I know, there were no prior threats made, no notes sent, no gossip from his friends or aquaintances, not one indication that this sociopath would drive to a school and murder children.  The school has not had any situations dealing with lunatics roaming the halls carrying weapons.  This school even had better security than most schools.  So, what exactly was forseeable???

It seems to me that this family is just looking for a huge payday.  They are using this tragedy to make themselves a fortune.  Personally, I don’t think the state owes them shit.  No one owes them anything at all.  They should be counting their blessings and being thankful they have their child.  They could also show a little compassion for the other families that weren’t so lucky.

People these days are looking for too many damn handouts.  Profiting off tragedies and sheer stupidity seem to be the craze.  Think back to the person who sued McDonalds for their coffee being hot.  She spilled it, like an idiot, and got mad cause it was hot.  It’s coffee you moron!  Our court system allows this type of shit too.  What has happened to this country and it’s citizens?

Newtown Massacre…my Solution

I’m sure everyone has heard about this horrible incident.  For those who haven’t…here is the short version.  Adam Lanza, 20, shot and killed his mother and then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School.  He stalked into the school, without being buzzed in, and killed 20 children and 6 adults.  20 innocent babies were stripped of their futures and 6 adults died protecting the children they loved.

This incident has caused a lot of shock and heartache.  But the one thing that I don’t understand is the anger people are holding towards guns.  Why blame the weapons?  Weapons DO NOT kill people…people kill people.  And people do it all the time…whether it’s with a gun, knife, box cutter, poison, baseball bat, fire, car, etc.  Hell, Bundy used a crowbar people!  Should we outlaw those too?!?

I’ll tell ya what I think we should do.

Veterans need jobs!  Veterans, with honorable discharges and background checks, would be a wonderful idea!  Give our Veterans the honor and responsibility of protecting our children.  I know several Veterans who would love the privilege.  Retired police officers would be a great idea too.  Random drug tests could be given, as with any other job.  The Veterans could receive training from the police force along with approval and certification to carry and shoot the particular weapon that they would carry.

I’m not sure about the laws and such but maybe the Veterans could go to the station to get the issued weapons or carry their own with the proper permits.  Updates can be given daily, at the station, about any concerns and current events.  They would patrol only during school hours.  And the schools should be allowed to budget in the guards.  The safety of our children should be considered priceless!  Guards should be allowed to do random locker and book bag checks.

This can work!  We just have to find a way.  I believe this will cut down on shootings, fights, and other types of violence in general.  Our teachers are not equipped or trained for these situations and they shouldn’t have to be, in my opinion.  Veterans and retired police officers have been trained for these situations and would be honored to keep watch over our children.  Taking away guns from citizens in this country is wrong.  We have and wish to keep the right to protect ourselves and our families.  Please remember, people kill people.  People can use any object to take the life of another.  Guns are not the problem.
