Extend that logic to the border, as well. If the government wants to assume control of the border, thereby preventing a people their right to defend their lands from foreigners, then the government ought to be held responsible for every act of violence committed by the invaders who freely cross the unsecured border.

lets extend that to intelligence agencies. If the government uses tax payer money to contract private companies to spy on us, it will be considered the government breaching our Rights. The company AND government should be held responsible.

Safeguards against corruption have always been needed, will always be needed and will never be installed.

Which is one of the main criticisms of democracy. Since there is never anyone who is responsible.

We are a republic. Those responsible are the elected officials. This issue isn't who is responsible. We know who is responsible. The failure is that we are not holding them accountable, including prosecution and imprisonment when they break the law.

Of any state. It's always the state's fault for this and that which haven't been done. Complain to the state.

I can't find it, but I swear there was a Supreme Court (or Federal Court at least) case from 2010(ish) that actually decided this issue. I want to say New Mexico/Arizona.

A couple walked into a convenience store that had a "No Guns Allowed" sign posted. As law abiding citizens they left their concealed carry weapons in the car. As they're picking out their desired flavor of Cheetos and Dew, someone comes in for a little armed robbery.

Things go south, the robber ends up shooting and killing the wife. The husband sues the store because they didn't allow him to bring the gun in and therefore had accepted the liability of his safety.

Can anyone find this decision? The story is too common to pop up on the googles, and I'm not that familiar with citing chapter and verse on gun rights cases.

Actually, this is why some states allow you to carry even when there is a sign that says you can't, barring the 30.06/30.07.

They should extend this to ANY employee of the school system to include janitorial help to office help and grounds workers.

advocating “gov only gun zones” sounds like the first step to ending up in a death camp lol

be ABLE to carry a gun would arm many that choose to. The govt or school system would be liable if they forbid it.
