I came home last night and gave my older daughter a big hug…i then proceeded to explain to her about one of the reason so many folks died that horrid day. Gun Free Zones = Turkey Shoot. I’m not going to be blithe and say armed staff could have eliminated all deaths..that’s simply idiocy. However, armed staff would have meant fewer folks would have died. Most school building on the interior are not made of bullet resistant materials like concrete but usually drywall and maybe some cinder blocks. Right now if somebody comes into the school with the purpose of killing anything .40 caliber and larger isn’t going to be stopped by interior constructions. unfortunately this means the current lockdown scheme simply means you cower in your classroom hoping the killer(s) don’t come to your door If they do..unless the teacher tries to intervene and gets shot) you are as good as dead. Unfortunately modern education(fueled by modern liberalistic gov’t) have so ingrained the fear of guns into the population’s brains they don’t realize that the first and last line of true defense is now gone…their own personal armaments. This massacre was over before the cops go there. News reports are saying the cops got there instantly…that’s a lie. Even in my small town where i can literally walk to the police station in under 10 minutes it still takes a minimum of 3 minutes for an officer to arrive. This was probably over in about that time. The cops are purely a reactionary force. if you want to keep your kids safe is school your choices are limited:
1. Truly education them about their surrounding at school. That means you need to intimately familiarize yourself with the building inside and out. You need to know how its hallways and classrooms are laid out..what the interior is made of and know your child’s classrooms so you can train your child on proper egress procedures. Son’t let your children become sitting ducks.
2. let the schools and local cops handle it. Ref other mass shootings for the results.
3. pull your children out of the public school system until the anal cranial infection clears itself.
guns are used more often by responsible owners more than double to stop(and prevent crimes) than they are to commit them. As long as the gun control folks have their way the mass shootings in schools, malls, hotels, churches…anywhere the turkey shoot mentality exists is not only going to continue..but may very well increase. The answer to this isn’t just more guns..i can agree there…the answer is more properly trained, self-armed gun owners packing. If schools are truly interested in our children’s safety they’ll get properly trained gun owners into the schools…if this turkey shoot mentality continues…children will continue to die at the hands of those who know where the easiest prey is located.
