Group says arm the teachers

Here’s one response to the Connecticut school–shootings tragedy.

The state’s main pro-gun group, Grass Roots North Carolina, said Tuesday it will push for a law arming teachers.

The organization says as soon as the General Assembly convenes next month it will seek legislation that would allow teachers and others with concealed handgun permits to pack heat in the classroom.

Under the gun

A gun rights group is targeting two House Democrats over a bill.

Grass Roots North Carolina is airing radio ads attacking Rep. Rep. Larry Hall of Durham and Rep. Rep. Annie Mobley of Ahoskie for sponsoring a bill on stolen guns.

The bill would make it a misdemeanor to fail to notify police within 48 hours after they "knew or reasonably should have known" of the theft.

Paul Valone, president of the advocacy group, said that the bill is "entirely wrongheaded."

"They should be going after the people who steal guns, not the victims of property crime," he said.

The ads, which can be heard here and here, are airing on sports radio in Durham and conservative talk radio in Elizabeth City.
