Admit it

The Legislative Gazette reports:

“… Sen. Felder, D-Brooklyn, first called for armed NYPD officers to be placed at city schools after a Halloween terror attack in New York City … That attacker was eventually apprehended by a police officer who happened to be nearby and according to Felder, proves that his legislation, S.6798, must be passed to ensure the safety of New York City’s students. This week, Felder again called on the Assembly to pass their own version of his Senate bill …”

There is no companion bill in the Assembly.

Time for me to stir the pot:

“After reading of Senator Felder’s call for armed security at public schools following the Halloween terror attack I have a question for the Senator: Don’t you think it’s time to admit that New York’s citizen disarmament laws do not keep the public safe?

However good your intentions, the NYPD does not have the ability, nor in fact do they have any legal responsibility, to protect the public either from street criminals or Islamic terrorists. The only one responsible for a person’s safety is the individual themselves. That is the reason 42 states covering 75 percent of the population have right-to-carry firearms for personal protection laws. No rational argument can be made for New York to be excluded from this. If you want to seriously address public safety then introduce legislation to bring the state in line with the majority.

Further, if you or any of your colleagues lack personal experience handling firearms and believe it is too complicated for ordinary citizens to do this, I am a certified instructor and will teach you it isn’t.”

I’m not expecting a response from Felder’s office, but you never know.
