Republicans Point to Isreal for Homeland Security

Two weeks ago Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois Alan Keyes http://www.suntimes.com/output/elect/cst-nws-sen25.html made his case for allowing the assault weapons ban to expire by pointing to Isreal. Keyes basically said that there are automatic weapons on the street in Isreal, and that if you've ever been to Isreal you know how safe that makes you feel. That seemed odd to me, but now Larry Pratt http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=40363 is advocating arming school bus drivers and teachers in an effort to make our schools safe from terrorism. Again, Pratt points to the fact that in Isreal bus drivers and teachers are in fact armed. I guess this is what we can expect in a second Bush term where Homeland Security is concernced. I guess we will simply put guns in the hands of our kids' teachers and school bus drivers and hope they don't accidently kill our children before the terrorists get them. If conservatives feel Isreal is such a safe place to be, maybe than should go live there for a month and then get back to us.
