Here’s one the Right Wing probably didn’t see coming.

DES MOINES, Iowa — A new Kansas law allowing gun owners to carry weapons in public buildings, including schools, has thrust a major Des Moines-based insurer into the national gun control debate.
The EMC Insurance Cos. insures 85 percent to 90 percent of all Kansas school districts and has refused to renew coverage for schools that permit teachers and custodians to carry concealed firearms on their campuses under the new law, which took effect July 1. It’s not a political decision, but a financial one based on the riskier climate it estimates would be created, the insurer said. [...]
The Kansas Legislature passed the law after the fatal shootings of 20 elementary school children in Newtown, Conn., in December.
According EMC Insurance, any on-site security provided on school grounds “should be provided by uniformed, qualified law enforcement officers.” And while that may seem like common sense to you or I, apparently it isn’t to gun fetishists who, in their delusions of grandeur, see themselves as the next Detective John Kimble.
The free market has spoken. Will gun fetishists denounce the free market for blasphemy against their god, the gun?
