Proposed Law Would Force Parents to Disclose Gun Ownership to School District

How many more laws will be passed to strip Americas

Gun owners’ rights?

Wake up gun owners before you have no rights left.

 

[An egregious violation of personal privacy]

Apparently, liberals have a plan to bring an end to school shootings: Make disclosure of firearm ownership mandatory for all families enrolled in public education. According to the Missouri Torch:

A pre-filed bill in the Missouri Senate would require parents of public school students to report to the school if they own a gun.

Why don’t we just cut right to the chase, and write a law instructing would-be mass-shooters to report their intentions well ahead of time? Or, heck, we could just outlaw the act of killing innocent school children. And I’m sure criminals, owners of illegal weapons, and potentially dangerous sociopaths will be more than happy to follow along with such equally ridiculous legislation. Right?

More than being an egregious violation of personal privacy, the bill highlights the impotence of progressive “solutions” to violence conducted with firearms. Compulsory disclosure of gun ownership provides the authorities with such little actionable or useful information it is almost not worth mentioning.

Of course, in in places like New York, such disclosure of firearm ownership is actually aiding authorities. Without a public registry of firearm licenses, authorities in NYC would have a far more difficult time confiscating weapons from law-abiding gun owners who have accidently run afoul of newly enacted gun laws.

The Missouri proposal, however, does not call on parents to disclose the specific firearms they own… See, according to Liberals, all guns are evil – and all gun owners merit increased scrutiny and surveillance by authorities. (Wow… And you wonder why people with guns don’t like more gun laws… Weird.)

The Missouri Torch reported:

This act requires a parent or guardian to notify a school district, or the governing body of a private or charter school, that he or she owns a weapon within 30 days of enrolling the child in school or becoming the owner of a weapon. The written notification only needs to include the names of the parent and any child attending the school and the fact that the parent owns a weapon.

Naturally, the question arises: What the heck is this proposal actually supposed to accomplish? Aside from giving schools (read: government) a list of the county’s child-bearing gun owners, actionable intelligence (and almost any other kind of intelligence as well) is non-existent.

The Left Alleges “Unregulated Abuses” Among Homeschoolers

1 Comment

This is from Politi Chicks.

When was the last news story about a homeschooling

female student being raped by a male teacher?

When was the last news story about a homeschooling

male student seduced and raped by a female teacher?

As far as I know there has never been such headlines.

 

As the Common Core curriculum is rolled out around the country, parents are just beginning to get a taste of what is in store for them and their children in the coming years, and many parents aren’t happy about what they see.  Add this to the reality of our already failing school systems and many parents are being forced to look at other options for their children’s education.  One option that is
standing out for many parents is the option of homeschooling.

Homeschooling, once considered to only be the choice of religious families, has suddenly become the choice of many non-religious families who are fed up with the schools in our country. As this happens, and homeschooling grows at a rapidly increasing rate, progressives around the country are starting to look for ways to discredit this type of education.  Why would the liberal progressives care whether or not a family chooses to homeschool?  Because if families choose home education over state run education, the liberal progressives can’t indoctrinate our children with their liberal propaganda, and God forbid that our country might actually have a few free-thinking individuals left to mess up the future of their socialist utopia. 

The liberal progressives suddenly have to come up with a way to stop, or at least slow down, the growth of the homeschooling movement and find a way to control the families that do choose to homeschool.  The best way to slow down the growth of homeschooling and inflict as much damage as possible is to discredit the movement as a whole and what better way to do this than to use the liberal media.  In a recent article published on the Daily Beast, called “The Sinister Side of Homeschooling“, the author equates homeschooling with abusive homes and families, stating that:

Some families [who homeschool] are simply trying to hide abuse and keep kids wholly under their control.

In the article, the author relays several stories about homeschooling children who have been abused, sometimes even killed, by the families who were homeschooling them. One story the author tells is about Erica Lynn Parsons, a girl from North Carolina who was being homeschooled by her adoptive parents.  Her adoptive brother reported her missing in August of this year and it was then found out that Erica hadn’t been seen since 2011.  The girl’s birth mother is now calling for greater regulation and oversight of homeschooling and pushing for a bill called “Erica’s Law”.

There is no doubt that the stories the author relays are heartbreaking, but these stories, and stories like them, aren’t the real reason for this particular Daily Beast piece.  Before we get to the real reason why the article was written, let’s first look at the supposed reason–which was to expose the sinister, abusive side of homeschooling.  According to the author’s statistics, there are approximately 1,500,000 homeschoolers currently homeschooling in the United States, and in the past 13 years there have been approximately 70 reported cases of abuse coming from homeschooling families.  (*I have seen numbers as high as 2.1 million but we will use her numbers for continuities sake) 

When you divide 70 by 13, we come up with a total of 5.3 abuse cases per year or approximately .00000353% of the total number of homeschoolers.  Now let’s compare the homeschool abuse statistics to child abuse statistics as a whole:

·  In 2011, there were 676,569 children abused in the United States or approximately .0091% of the total population of children under 18.

·  493,219 of the children abused were either school age or preschool age.

·  Children in the general population were 2,578 times more likely to be the victims of abuse than children in the homeschooling population alone.

Some might argue that the reason the number of abuse cases are so low within the homeschooling movement is simply because the children are “hidden” or as the author of the article said, “It’s easy for the world to forget that they exist”.  While this might be true in some cases, as a homeschooling mom who just started her third year of homeschooling, I can tell you that for most homeschooling families nothing could be further from the truth.  My children, and most homeschooling children I know, are well integrated into society.  These children attend any number of activities including homeschool co-ops, sports activities (including public school sports activities), church functions, dance classes, art classes, music classes, doctor’s visits, etc. It would be more than a little difficult to “hide” abuse when most homeschooling children are seen by numerous “outside” people daily, don’t you think?

So let’s get back to the real reason why this article was written:  to discredit the homeschooling movement as a whole—because if liberals can’t force homeschooling children to attend their liberal progressive schools, they will do everything in their power to control the families that choose to homeschool, and the best way to do that is through stricter regulation and oversight.

Throughout this article the author repeatedly calls for “greater regulation” of homeschooling.  She wants to make sure that all states make it harder for families to homeschool and she wants government to have a greater say in what we are allowed to teach our children.  These progressives are trying to force every child to fit their liberal mold so that the future of our country will be shaped by the next generation of young socialists (or communists).

As conservatives we must fight back against the lies that are being perpetrated against the families that are trying to break out of the public school mold and protect their children from the liberal progressive agenda. The best way to fight back is to point out the fallacies that are continually being told by the liberal propaganda machine, or in other words, the mainstream media.

Two 7-Year-Olds Suspended For Playing With Pencils

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

This is from the you can’t make this up department.

Why can’s boys be boys?

Doing things like they were doing is in their DNA.

This is why we home school.

 

Just because these kinds of cases have become so commonplace doesn’t mean we should be any less outraged by them. Any time we see them, we should be angered at the sheer stupidity of government schoolteachers and officials who have deluded themselves into believing that they’re actually performing a public service. These are the kinds of things they do with taxpayers’ money.

This particular outrage comes out of Suffolk, Virginia, but the details and framework of the case are virtually identical to all the other cases involving small kids being suspended for being kids.

Two 7-year-olds were playing with their pencils, pointing them at each other and making shooting sounds. This violated the school’s zero tolerance policy, which the school system’s spokesman Bethanne Bradshaw said has been in place for twenty years. She said that the policy also prohibits the drawing of guns and pointing one’s fingers “in a threatening manner.”

When the father of one of the students asked his son what happened, his son told him that he was “being a Marine, and the other guy was being a bad guy.” The problem is, according to Bradshaw, that a pencil becomes a weapon when it is pointed at another student “in a threatening way” and when “gun noises are made.”

 

Whether Bradshaw went to a government school or a private school, I think we can say, without fear of contradiction, that her parents paid way too much for her education. She continued:

“Some children would consider it threatening, who are scared about shootings in schools or shootings in the community. Kids don’t think about ‘Cowboys and Indians’ anymore, they think about drive-by shootings and murders and everything they see on television news every day…It’s an effort to try to get kids not to bring any form of violence, even if it’s violent play, into the classroom. There has to be a consequence because it’s a rule. And it’s a rule that the principals go over.”

Who says kids don’t play Cowboys and Indians anymore? These are boys we’re talking about. It’s usually the boys who get in trouble with their teachers over these silly incidents involving imaginary guns. Maybe they don’t call it Cowboys and Indians anymore, but it’s the same game. As the father of one of the students recounted, they were playing “Marines and Bad Guys.” Maybe the “bad guys” were Muslim terrorists.

Oh, but we must remember tolerance. Let’s not rush to judgment here. We shouldn’t treat Islam any differently than any other religion. They’re all equal. And the school has a zero tolerance policy against intolerance. Unless it’s something that’s actually evil. Like a gun-shaped hand. Or pastry.

If parents want to clog up the court system with lawsuits against these idiots in government schools, that would be fine. But the next step should be to remove their kids from these brainwashing camps.

Civilization Jihad: The Islamization of YOUR Kids in America’s Schools

Leave a comment

This is from Jan Morgan Media.

One more reason our children will not attend public school.

Wake up America the camel’s nose is under the tent flap.

 

In light of the attacks on and after 9/11, you would think the current administration would use a little prudence if they were sincerely concerned about a radical Muslim threat.

When Obama took his oath of office, he instead defied America in numerous ways. He has given $1.5 billion to Muslim-led Egypt in foreign aid, shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood declared war on the United States. He has now offered them sixteen F-16s and 200 military tanks.

This is the same man that said America is “no longer a Christian nation” (though it is), followed by a reference that America may be described as a Muslim nation.

Muslim Indoctrination in Public Schools

Interestingly enough, in recent years American public schools have been indoctrinated with the Muslim religion. Studies have shown over 500 historical errors in public school textbooks, giving an Islamic slant to our youth.

As a result, our youth are subject to the following teachings and practices:
* Learning to become a Muslim
* Fasting for Ramadan
* Learning the five pillars of Islam
* Memorizing verses of the Quran
* Adopting a Muslim name
* Staging a Jihad (war against non-Muslims)

How did this happen? The ACLU, the American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Clinton administration joined together to create an environment that opened the door to Muslim teaching, while attacking anyone who speaks of the Christian religion in public schools.
Hence, you see some courts backing the Muslim agenda when, for example, a school in California is teaching their students a three-week course that essentially requires them to become a Muslim for that period of time!

To prove my point, a representative from the American Muslim Council, Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi, today serves a 23-year prison sentence for being one of the top fundraisers of al-Qaida in the U.S.

In addition, there are over 225 Muslim schools in the U.S. and around 50,000 children who are being taught to, and I quote Brigitte Gabriel with ACT! For America, “foster an environment of hate, loathing, and resentment toward Western culture, Christians, Jews, Shiites, secular Muslims, and non-Muslims.”

Muslim Infiltration in Universities

Saudis have taken advantage of the Title VI program that our government implemented after World War II for the education of young Americans about foreign cultures and languages.
How? They are using their riches from oil to pump millions of dollars into our universities to appoint Arab professors in departments such as political science, Middle East studies, etc. who are brainwashing American students with an anti-American point of view. They teach that Americans are the problem; that America’s foreign policy is the problem; that America’s wealth, enlightenment, and success are oppressing the rest of the world.

This explains why Obama is apologizing to other nations. This is why this anti-American curriculum has sneaked its way into our schools. This is also why the ACLU quickly represents Muslims while refusing to defend Christians who practice their faith … in public schools.
