In a gallant show of concern for over-run PC-style sympathies at the state capital, House Representative John Burt (R, Goffstown) states that flying the state house flag at half-mast in respect of the children lost in the Newtown CT tragedy is another example of the politically correct (otherwise known as sensitive, caring and considerate) folks have gone too far this time.
As Susan the Bruce points out quite clearly, Burt knows how and when to show sympathy and concern for children by voting against extending mental health care services for children and voting against the anti-bullying law as well.
Good show Burt! Burt explains that he’s concerned too and thinks its time to arm teachers with guns. Total genius we say, because killing kids has shown to be such a good solution in the past, why not turn schools into an all-out war zone? Teachers have got a bad rap in our society that’s for sure and as recent history tells us there’s no better solution for frustration than a warm gun.
In fact, as William Tucker of Miscellany Blue tells us Burt also recently announced that he believes laws are made for breakin’ and that’s just what he’ll do, as in carrying his weaponry where ever he pleases, whether forbid by law or not. Because well, nothing should ever get between Burt’s itchy trigger finger and a short shaft, not even public safety or common sense.
We encourage everyone to let Burt know what they think of a legislator empowered with making laws , disrespecting the laws already written. Here’s his contact information as posted on the NH state representative’s roster:
Representative John Burt,
7 Bay Street, Goffstown NH 03045-2634
Mr. Burt apparently has a website of his own, but you’ll have to look that up yourself, we aren’t into promoting stupid up here in these parts.
In view of the horror in CT, I doubt he would like the experience of being charged with carrying a gun in a school zone.
I don’t know Nelle, he might try to say he was being present “just in case”. I have a feeling shame escapes this guy.
