The Unintended Consequences of Locking Up Your Gun

John R. Lott, Jr. takes Texas to task for giving in to anti gun groups who insist we should keep our guns locked up in a post at entitled Mandating Gun Locks Can Have Unintended Consequences. Lott claims that the people killed because they were unable to get to their self defense weapon in time, dwarf the number of people killed by children stealing their parents' guns.
The media just can’t help itself playing this public safety campaign spending as a defeat of those who support gun ownership. But the media completely ignores another bill that really will project school children, a bill that expands Texas’ program to let teachers carry guns at school.
Please go read the entire article. I would note that in the North Carolina State Legislature, Rep. Larry Pittman has introduced a bill that would allow armed teachers in schools, H216.  If you are in NC, it might behoove you to support this bill.
