MASS SHOOTINGS IN SCHOOLS ARE NO LONGER RARE.
IN FACT, THE INCIDENTS ARE SHOCKINGLY FREQUENT.
Alarmingly, there have been nearly 1,000 mass shootings in the US since 2012, according to the ultra-liberal publication, The Guardian. That is shootings, not killings. But the number of dead is distressingly high, too.
Therefore, parents and grandparents should consider banding together to insist schools consider protecting students with services of professional trained armed guards.
Right now a local high school conducted drills where students were told to fight off an attacker by throwing chairs and laptops at him.
This does not seem like a good plan…it is neither effective nor smart. Though it is agreed, as Dr. Ben Carson stated, it is better to fight than submit. That is not the issue in schools.
These are CHILDREN AND DESERVE THE PROTECTION OF ADULTS. THEY MUST NOT BE LEFT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES AGAINST A MURDEROUS ATTACKER.
In California the legislature is doing just that.
It is banning guns in schools by law-abiding citizens.
This gun control law is unwise. An illogical action as it will provide a secure target for the crazies looking to shoot up a school to gain their 15 minutes of fame as a murderer.
Some mass murderers have stated they seek out locations where there are no guns….no possible opposition. So they can attack without any fear of being stopped before they kill all they want to kill.
The Oregon Umpqua Community College shooting, which killed Christians, is the 294 mass shooting event in 2015….(as defined by website Shootingtracker.com).
Mass shooting entails four or more persons shot.
According to the FBI mass murder events, rather than mass shooting events, tallies 45 such incidents this year, and 142 since Sandy Hook where 26 were killed in a school.
It should be noted the Obama administration is quick to seize on every shooting incident to convince Americans they must surrender their firearms.
As history students know, disarming citizens is necessary to gaining complete control over the population. Dr. Ben Carson is being criticized by the Marxist/leftist media for his comments relating to the Nazis disarming the people, which enabled the Storm Troopers to round up millions of unarmed persons marked for murder.
Obama fails to mention it is the gun-toting criminals who kill, not law-abiding citizens who have guns for their own protection. A protection guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Interestingly, Obama’s “hometown” Chicago’s murder rate is highest in the US. Illinois and Chicago have severe gun control laws, which apparently have been useless in stopping the carnage on Chicago’s South Side, were every week black on black murders take place.
Because there is no political benefit to Obama to highlight the black on black Chicago murders this high murder rate is never mentioned by the Obama administration.
However, when a white police officer is involved in shooting a black person Obama’s in front of the TV cameras instantly. As a consequence of not upholding the rule of law police officers now are now at risk of assassination.
In short, citizens should not depend on politicians to protect their children.
Parents and grandparents must take up this cause.
Provide two professional armed guards in schools to protect students.
Students must not be left to fend for themselves when a murderer attacks.
