The Constitution was written for times such as these!

“In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson

The Constitution was written for times such as these.

The debate over gun control raging in the wake of the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school vividly illustrates the need for constitutional chains.

Emotions boiled over after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. Americans reacted in stunned disbelief, anger and a deep sense of sadness. Questions chased each other through the airwaves and across the Internet. How could anybody do such a thing – to children? And how can we stop it from ever happening again?

By removing the government from the "education" system, privately owned schools will be directly responsible for the safety of its students and curriculum.

Schools could chose to hire armed guards and search anyone entering the property owned by the private schools.

Parents who would not want to "subject" their kids to a school with armed guards could send the to schools that would not have them as the free market would take care of that demand.

Homeschooling would make it very hard for criminals to achieve their objective of killing so many kids..

At the end of the day, we must all admit that their is no full proof way to protect everyone and that is why everyone must have the right to protect themselves.
