Michigan Governor Rick Snyder vetoed a bill that would allow concealed guns in public schools just four days after the massacre of 20 pupils in Connecticut.

“While we must vigilantly protect the rights of law-abiding firearm owners, we also must ensure the right of designated public entities to exercise to their best discretion in matters of safety and security,” he said in a letter sent to the legislature. “These public venues need clear legal authority to ban firearms on their premises if they see fit to do so.”

The Michigan bill, approved by the legislature less than 24 hours before the Newtown killings, is a practical way to let teachers who’ve completed training protect themselves and their pupils, said Senator Tom Casperson, a Republican sponsor of the bill. He said some teachers at the Connecticut school died trying to shield children.

“To me it gives them a chance,” he said.

    Ron Paul speaks about the problems with the reactions of both the political Left and Right to the Connecticut shooting:

    Ron Paul’s Texas Straight Talk 12/24/2012: Government Security is Just Another Kind of Violence
    http://paul.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2037:government-security-is-just-another-kind-of-violence&catid=64:2012-texas-straight-talk&Itemid=69

    Predictably, the political left responded to the tragedy with emotional calls for increased gun control. This is understandable, but misguided.

    The political right, unfortunately, has fallen into the same trap in its calls for quick legislative solutions to gun violence. If only we put armed police or armed teachers in schools, we’re told, would-be school shooters will be dissuaded or stopped.

    While I certainly agree that more guns equals less crime and that private gun ownership prevents many shootings, I don’t agree that conservatives and libertarians should view government legislation, especially at the federal level, as the solution to violence.

    Furthermore, do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, metal detectors, X-ray scanners, and warrantless physical searches?

    School shootings, no matter how horrific, do not justify creating an Orwellian surveillance state in America.

    Do we really believe government can provide total security? Do we want to involuntarily commit every disaffected, disturbed, or alienated person who fantasizes about violence? Or can we accept that liberty is more important than the illusion of state-provided security? Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives.

    When I think about it the system should have aleady been doing a better job over seeing all the schools. Drug dealers, pimps, etc. have targeted children for decades. This could have been prevented. Reminds me of something my mom once said after 9/11 that, “They already new from the 70’s about plane jackings and explosives.” Here we are again, after the fact maybe we can do something now? Poor babies. I don’t want to even imagine the fear and their faces and eyes, helpless and they knew it. Guard at every school, yes, because this world is getting crazier.
