The media and the government, being liberal, are throwing themselves into the cause of gun control. As a time when an Obama re-election victory has discouraged conservatives, and a mass shooting is being used to beat them down, the government and the media seems to be trying to push the public into a gun control regime.

But is that reality or is that noise? Until we get to the vote in Congress, or see the executive order that we keep hearing about, we can’t answer that question with absolute certainty. But there are plenty of signs that the threats on the Second Amendment are proving to be smoke and noise, not real power. For example, the Toledo Blade reports:

“The Montpelier Exempted Village Schools Board of Education has approved the carrying of handguns by its custodial staff. The 5-0 vote of the board Wednesday night to allow handgun training for four custodians to be able to tote weapons at the K-12 campus at the Williams County school came after last month’s deadly shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. School officials say that having armed personnel – believed to be the first for any school system in Ohio – is designed to thwart incidents of violence and prevent what happened in Newtown, Conn., from occurring here. ‘Sitting back and doing nothing and hoping it doesn’t happen to you is just not good policy anymore. There is a need for schools to beef up their security measures,” Superintendent Jamie Grime told The Blade today. ‘Having guns in the hands of the right people are not a hindrance. They are a means to protect.’”
