    Screw the gun control arguments, and the mental health arguments. Letís get down to an issue never talked about. How in the hell does a 19 year old man walk into a school with a long gun unnoticed? Why doesnít anyone want to lock our schools down for our own kids safety and well being? My kids school locks the doors and you have to ring a bell to get in, but every time I walk up they let me right in. Ban AR rifles isnít going to stop this from happening. Sandy Hook was handguns. Itís time to make our schools safe, and that starts with security measures at school.

    The real problem is trying to find an answer that doesn't impact the rights of law abiding citizens and still able to target those that may do harm.

    Until you can do that, sadly the status quo has to be.

    I'm open to discussion that addresses the problem and not the tool.

    I donít get why people donít want to start here, what is a childís life worth. I just donít get it. Letís make them safe, then we can worry about how to make these tragedies go away forever.

    I'm open to discussion that addresses the problem and not the tool.
    If you really care about your right to bear arms, you need to be involved in the discussion in finding solutions...legislation is like a pendulum...there are core passionate groups that are polarized on opposite sides of the pendulum, and a largely unapathetic group in the middle...when the middle group , sitting on the fence becomes energized to respond one way or the the other, they swing the pendulum...by voting in people to enact legislation.

    Some think that the tool is not the problem...some think that is is...it's not that black and white. You might find that the tool may be just a part of the problem...

    In stead of cops sitting around at speed traps they should be waiting for a real call at the local school parking lot. At least then someone will be there shooting back. I think the deterrent of a good guy with a gun would stop most of the school shootings.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
