Women and Guns
A school teacher in Wisconsin, Betsy Ramsdale, was put on administrative leave when she posted a picture on her Facebook account of herself holding a rifle. It seems some “concerned” staff member saw the picture and decided to report her to the school’s administration.
As it is apparently legal for women to own guns in the state of Wisconsin (go figure) I am not exactly sure why she was reprimanded. Are Wisconsin teachers prevented from participating in biathlon competitions? (Biathlon is an Olympic sport combining shooting and cross-country skiing.) Are Wisconsin teachers allowed to hunt?
Apparently some mothers were “offended” at seeing a teacher of their precious little angels shooting a gun. And we all know that when a woman is “offended” that trumps any of our Constitutional rights.
Personally, I don’t mind seeing women with guns.
