Why some people shouldn't have guns

(From the Jan. 10 Arizona Republic.)

Brookfield, Conn. - A school board member in a Connecticut town neighboring the one where 26 people were killed at an elementary school has resigned amid an outcry over his comment that he would observe the Newtown massacre's anniversary by distributing ammunition.

Gregory Beck faced numerous demands that he resign from the Board of Education in Brookfield, which borders Newtown, where 20 first graders and six educators were killed Dec. 14, 2012.  Beck agreed to step down from the board Tuesday, just two months after being elected.

During a tribute to the Newtown victims called "26 Days of Kindness," Beck wrote on Facebook that his acts of kindness would be giving ammunition to his friends on each of the 26 days.

Sounds about as stupid as a judge wanting to let Mike Vodens friends hold his guns for him while he awaits trial for murder.That judge is up for reelection this year. Only hope is we can vote him out.Speaking about people that should never have been allowed to have a gun Mike fell through the net there.
