A little schooling for the principal

It appears that the principal needs schooling. For context, how about the various Militia Acts, starting with 1792? Every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45 (with exceptions for experienced men older than 45) are designated as part of the United States Militia, to be called upon by our nation if needed. Of course, those don't fit in the ultra-left world view.

The start of the Revolutionary war, the ‘shot heard ‘round the world' was against a British column sent to confiscate a cannon in Concord. Civilians with a cannon? Mr. (Mark) Neish (Jan. 8 guest commentary) seems to have very selective eyes when it comes to history.

Finally, it has been repeatedly proven that in the U.S., more guns equals less crime. Why? If you had common sense, you would realize that allowing law-abiding citizens to protect themselves (and each other) causes criminals to reconsider their actions. Gun Free Zones are Criminal Protection Zones, they disarm the lawful to be easier prey for the lawless. Mr. Neish, you have no common sense.
