Armed teachers can save childrens' lives: "We have just lived through another horrendous school shooting. Sadly, the residents of Red Lake, Minnesota have found themselves in the same unenviable position as those in Littleton, Springfield and Erfort, Germany. ... I would suggest that we do one simple thing: Remove the restrictions that prohibit Concealed Handgun License (CHL) holders from carrying their personal firearms while on school property. This is a deceptively simple act. Nothing more or less is needed to increase exponentially the safety of our schools."

Safety first: It's for the children: "As a concealed permit holder, I believe that proper respect for the firearm at all times is essential. It is the responsibility of ALL gun owners to exercise caution and obey all safety rules at all times. I believe that these safety rules should be instilled in all family members who have guns in their homes AND in children who may come across guns in someone else's home. I strongly encourage proper gun safety education for children."

North Carolina: Resident shoots masked intruder: "A man shot an armed intruder at his east Charlotte home Saturday night, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said, sending the masked man to the hospital. A man wearing a bandana on his face entered a home in the 6300 block of Montego Drive near The Plaza through an unlocked door about 11:30 p.m., said Capt. Earl Mathis. Three adults and two children were home at the time, Mathis said. The suspect followed one of the residents into a bedroom to get money. The resident shot the intruder multiple times, Mathis said. The intruder, whose identity police did not release, was rushed to a hospital for surgery. He was expected to recover."
