The deaths rest on their shoulders and I hope they never quit thinking about their actions. Now, everyone across the country is blaming the gun.
May 1974 Israel had a school massacre that killed over 100 children. They said Never again!
And for more than four decades they have had no more. Gun laws? They already had very strict laws regarding guns so no, that was not the answer.
The answer was to arm school personnel that was already trained.
Everything based upon voluntary duty to protect the children.
American schools have plenty of personnel that are more than willing to protect our children if necessary with guns.
But we are dealing with the same low IQ people that we did after 9-11 that was screaming against arming pilots and Air Marshals.
What the problem here is those low IQ people and not the guns.
And what happened after 9/11? Over the objections of liberals, we armed pilots and put Air Marshals in place, and there hasn't been a hijacking in this country since. The predator thinks twice, when the prey is armed. Soft targets, like "gun free" zones, are easy prey. The blaming of the gun or even more absurd, the NRA, is detrimental to solving the real problem. Hardening of soft targets.
The kids that walked out of school yesterday, if they were serious about solutions, should have marched to the office of the Cowards of Broward County. The video was released today, sickening. But, since the kids are nothing but pawns, they're fighting to deprive law abiding people of their rights. Sadly, conservatives missed the boat in not more of us going into teaching. Our children are being indoctrinated to believe Socialism is preferable. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.
