|A schoolmarm in Israel protecting her precious children...|
Newtown, CT—We have yet another slaughter by a total coward in a Gun-Free Zone. The unintended deadly consequences of creating these “special areas” where self-defense is outlawed won’t end until we face the obvious fact that Gun-Free Zones protect nobody.
We learned long ago that we must arm police because the guns save lives. The reality is there’s never a cop around when you need one.
We protect cash with armed guards but we only use Gun-Free Zones to protect our children. It’s obvious cash is far more important than our children.
We need to return armed police and security to every school and staff members to carry firearms after training.
As the picture above from Israel demonstrates the schoolteachers there carry what our politicians call assault weapons.
Let’s use firearms to protect our children for a change. Cops or properly vetted and well-trained armed security guards can stop those who would harm our children.
On a side note let me suggest that Americans have gone out of their way to tolerate bullying and victimizing those deemed unpopular.
Those people that seem different or unusual are pushed aside and abandoned. The emotional damage done can cause depression and nurture anger.
When you look at every mass shooter the picture is always the same. These are social outcasts who can’t find ways to cope with the loneliness.
Perhaps it’s time for all of us to reach out to those among us that don’t seem to fit into our lives. A little kindness may rescue these tortured souls and prevent horrific events like we’ve seen this morning.
