Moonbats aren’t concerned with keeping children safe from violence. They are concerned with keeping them safe from anything regarded by the progressive intelligentsia as politically unclean. An example from the snooty, insufferably liberal Hamptons:
Youngsters at the Tuckahoe School in Southampton regularly hear gunfire from a Southampton Village police gun range directly across the street — and critics want the crackling volleys to cease.
While the range and school have co-existed for decades, the sound of bullets flying the week after the Sandy Hook massacre sent some residents over the edge. …
Someone even spray painted a large plywood sign at the site this week reading “Does a gun range belong here?”
It isn’t a matter of the noise per se.
[School-board member Harald] Steudte said the Connecticut shooting should prompt the cops to move their operation elsewhere completely. “I’m happy that the mayor had them stop shooting during school hours,” he said. “But at this point I think it should not be there at all.”
This is because according to the official narrative, Adam Lanza didn’t commit the atrocity in Newtown; guns did.
Reports a woman who lives near the range:
“My little girl asks me what that sound is. It’s hard to explain.”
Try this explanation: Good guys need to practice with their guns so they can shoot the bad guys before the bad guys hurt you.
Tuckahoe School was probably the last in the country a maniac would choose for a shooting spree. But liberal fools have been working to fix that.
