There are no school massacres in Israel…

About Tim Condon

I’ve been political my entire life, starting out with Barry Goldwater and The Conscience of a Conservative in the1960's. In 1967 I enlisted in the U.S. Marines for four years, spending nearly two of them in South Vietnam. In 1972 I was a Florida presidential elector for Prof. John Hospers, the first Presidential candidate of the national Libertarian Party which was founded that same year. During the late 1970's and into the 1980's I was a contributing editor and monthly columnist for Reason magazine, and I’ve authored numerous articles in the print and online media about various subjects relating to individual rights and personal freedom. Today I'm a lawyer by profession; I divide my time between New Hampshire and Florida all year long, spending much of my time practicing law in Florida. As an early supporter and past member of the board of directors of the Free State Project, I was drawn to the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire in late 2003 when it was chosen by a vote of the first 5,000 FSP participants. In 2004 I founded the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, and continue today to work within the state political system to advance the traditional NH values of frugal small government, low taxes, small business, free enterprise, and self-responsibility. To all, I say "Come and see what we are building in the beautiful, healthy, livable Free State of New Hampshire!"

    This is funny. Take it from a gun owner who also works in education. If the U.S. ever tried this, a majority of the teachers I know would at first cringe in horror at the guns they were handed, then struggle to determine which end to point towards them and which end to point away from them LOL!

  • let me get this straight: you want to issue military assault weapons to unionized government-school bureaucrats, at taxpayer expense?

    Sam Cohen of Pro-Gun NH says that Israel went to this as a policy in 1973 since the schools there were one of the primary targets of terror. Seems to be working just fine. The school resource officer in my little school district, by her uniform, is an obvious target. But it’s those who are armed that the bad guy can’t immediately determine is the case that completely changes the dynamic. Here it looks as though the class is on a field trip.
