There’s been a push lately to put students front and center in the gun debate. Mostly because youngsters are easy to manipulate and they easily garner sympathy. The general rule I go by is if the person is attacking the NRA, they most likely have no idea what they’re talking about. That’s before we even get into whether or not they understand things like “constitutional ramifications.” Which leftists obviously don’t, since they yell “scary black rifles weren’t around in 1791, they don’t count!”
It sucks that this is where we are, but if the media is going to play this game, so be it (see WATCH: Superintendent Says Mental Health, Not Guns, Are to Blame for Shootings and Parkland High School Student: I Don’t Think Gun Control Would Have Prevented This). Here’s JROTC student hero Colton Haab, talking about hero Coach Aaron Feis.
I believe if we did bring firearms on campus to teachers that are willing to carry, and they got their correct training for it, I think that would be a big beneficial factor for school safety. If Coach Feis had had his firearm in school that day, I believe that he most likely could’ve stopped the threat.
Yes, this is the same JROTC the left is demonizing to score points against the NRA. This is also why, to any leftist still asking why conservatives won’t talk guns, the line to pucker up and give my tookus a smooch forms to the right. Especially as the media rushes to promote anyone under the age 17 who takes the “brave” stance that 2nd Amendment suppporters all have blood on their hands. Intellectual honestly is so 2017.
I’m not pro-weaponzing schools. But one trained guard could have possibly prevented a lot of this.
