Actually, there were in decades gone by a number of gun attacks on schools in Israel by terrorists. An attack on a school in Ma'alot, Israel in 1973 killed several dozen students.
Uh, John, this isn't Israel, and Virginians are not terrorists.
It would be one thing to permit cab drivers to carry guns. But surely a cabdriver does not feel safer if he knows that his passenger has a gun. What does Faisal Gill's father think about:
Passengers taking their guns into cabs?
Drunk passengers taking guns into cabs?
Drunk, abusive passengers taking guns into cabs?
Drunk, abusive passengers who hate Pakistanis taking guns into cabs?
Is Jonathan planning on carrying a gun into a cab with Faisal? Other than that, it is a strange view that thinks that the cab driver should have a gun, but not anybody who wants to use a cab.
He also quoted another blogger who said:
Faisal Gill says he wants to go to Richmond and "fight." ....
Hmmmm. Fighting. Guns. See a scary pattern here? I'm not getting warm fuzzies, are you?
Yes, because if someone wants to fight for our district, we certainly can't let them own a gun.
If only Paul Nichols would pick up this anti-gun rhetoric, the election would be a walk. I'm glad at least one candidate is willing to fight for the right of Virginians to carry weapons. Even if they want to ride in a cab.
UPDATE: Oh, and btw, the blogger he quotes runs this site: http://luxuriouschoices.blogspot.com
In which she includes as a "must-see" blog http://www.bruu.org/. Yes, that's our friendly pro-illegal-immigrant Bull Run Unitarian Universalists. Which as a church I will not attack, but as a political action group I will criticize for their positions.
I guess it's not surprising she was against guns, but I didn't picture JM as a gun-grabber. After all, Greg L. gives him ad space, and has spoken well of him, and I can't imagine Greg giving the time of day to someone who thinks we shouldn't be allowed to carry guns.
