Honestly, I'm more shocked by the fact that there is a straight male drama teacher than I am by his vile behavior, which is the most depressing thing about this story.

"They must have been out of rubber knives and candy cigarettes that day," Sano said as he waved the toy gun during the council's caucus last week. "They couldn't give out books or bookmarks?"
Its easy to laugh about this, we all know that squirtguns are just a gateway weapon into bigger, more insidious weapons, it starts with squirt guns, then Super Soakers, they get hooked on it, and are soon buying Red Ryder BB guns, and after that they're collecting real guns and voting Republican!!!
Water Pistols are the match, SuperSoakers are the fuse, Red Ryders are the Bomb.
Anyway, lets see how he found out about this insidious neocon plot that our hero James Sano uncovered,
Sano said he took the water pistol from a 9-year-old boy while working as a lifeguard, and the child told him where he had received it.
"I was surprised and disappointed that this was a prize that was given away," he said. "We shouldn't send mixed messages to kids that we give a replica of a firearm."
Thank God we have patriotic leftists like Sano to act as our conscience and free us from the burden of private ownership of stuff he doesn't like. Oh, and remember kids, if you're a liberal Democrat, you get to steal other people's stuff with impunity, just say its for the Common Good, and you'll be all set.
The rest of the article justifies Sano's ridicolous Nanny State behavior by noting two teens killed this year, and finishes off with a librarian profusely apologizing and groveling to keep their job, at least that's how I read it. They think the squirt guns were part of a detective theme package they gave out.
The article also states that Albany recently assembled a Gun Violence Task Force...which I'm sure
won't engage in dishonest demagoguery or encourage undermining
constitutional rights with clumsy, ineffective legislation. Of course, this fact and the two shootings are completely unrelated, but by God the paper is gonna try to tie them together.

***I have my own copy of the video!
He tells the cop to take him in the woods and shoot him in the head, and he also called him a brownshirt and started singing "Springtime for Hitler" from The Producers! This is after he led cops on a high speed chase, and failed field sobriety tests. He pulled the Patrick Kennedy defense and blamed his meds, but I get the feeling his belligerent behavior will torpedo him...whatever, I love that song!
And some showtunes after the jump.

Here's the clip,
Does that look like spit to you?
He had a gun, but was disarmed and got his ass handed to him by a group of karate students. He's in the hospital healing up some nasty bruises. Seriously, how dumb do you have to be to try and rob a karate school?

He says it should be "for the absolutely rigorously restricted purpose of crime detection and prevention." If you trust any gov't to be that responsible, you are a fool. This is insane, and exactly what happens when you let the Nanny State run wild, y'know like this...
By the way, this is a real poster, touting Britain's closed circuit television(CCTV) system, which is used by police to monitor spots throughout the city, an idea which receives 71% support here in the US. Already, the Brits actually keep biometric samples from those simply accused of crimes, they once had to destroy them if the person was exonerated or charges dropped.
This crackpot idea is getting pushback from civil rights organizations thankfully, and the Home Office has made a statement that they have no intention of establishing such a system. I'll be curious to see if this idea gains any traction, the fact that they're even putting serious thought to it is alarming, of course, I find that the idea of putting surveillance cameras in US cities is supported at robust 71% in the US is alarming too.
Some people may find all this concern over the Nanny State to be irrational, overstated or paranoid, but one need only look at the creepy intrusive overreach in Britain, and plans for further control to see that it is entirely justified. Interesting to note, the Brits are leaving their homeland* in record numbers, and I can't say I blame them.

So where is this increasingly rabid hate coming from? Islamists and Leftists, of course, particularly on campus, where they even try to shut down Jewish or Pro-Israeli opinion where they can get away with it. MacShane notes that among the liberal intelligentsia in Britain, any pro-Israel sentiment is looked down upon.
We've seen a rise in this in the US too, I actually think its more pervasive in the US than we know, but its like socialism, in that liberals in the US won't say, 'yes, I'm a Socialist' because its a black mark to say it openly(even if its true,), "anti-Zionism" (straight up bullshit, its old-fashioned Jew hatred) is probably the same way.
MacShane points out that the Blair gov't and its looking like the Brown gov't will work to try and control the anti-Semitism bubbling up among the left and the Islamists. Good luck fellas, I don't think you'll succeed. I think this is well entrenched in Europe, and I think its getting there in the US. The sad part is its even worse on the continent, with even higher violence, abuse and vandalism, and some politicians and papers making raw anti-Jewish statements and facing no condemnation.
He warns that the new anti-semitism in Europe has potential to become worse than previous forms. I agree, for centuries the Jews were persecuted in Europe, ultimately culminating in the Holocaust. Jews recognized the need for their own state, and created Israel. Now again, it looks as though the Europeans are sliding into Jew-hatred, which could follow the Jews to their new homeland. MacShane sounds like he'll fight it, but I'm not sure there are enough people like him in Europe. I think there are enough here, thankfully. If American Jews faced the kind of vandalism and abuse that European ones are getting now, I think there would be a huge outcry that would demand a strong response from authorities. There's an uptick in that kind of thing, but not enough to demand a concerted response.
Looks like the Brits are doing a PR campaign to push back the Jew-haters. Good luck guys, you'll need it.

This is a natural extension of what Nanny-Statism is, and it won't stop at mandatory medical services, it'll continue into dictating how one should live their life, keeping them from engaging in 'risky' behavior, and then those liberties will be banned. They'll ban smoking, alcohol (except for communion wine...until Big Brother can ban that bourgeois bullshit too), fatty foods and anything else they deem unfit to do.
Then comes the question of treatment life threatening problems, such as cancer. Inevitably, the gov't will find itself in a position of wanting to resort to euthanasia or abandoning treatment to cut costs, whether the victim patient under the Imperial Health System wants to fight it out or not.
On the flipside, we'll see the government wanting to resort to infanticide for those babies born severely retarded or major physical disabilities. I believe we're already seeing this springing up in Europe.
So under Imperial Health Care, we'll see the government deciding what's healthy for you and decide whether you can engage in said activity or not, whether you get to live or die. If that doesn't scare the hell out of you, it should.
