Once again in the US we have seen a school shooting tragedy.
A gunman has killed 27 people, including 18 children, at a US school, an official said, in what was one of the worst school shootings in the country’s history.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is under way.
State police, in their first hurried briefing, said only students and school staff were killed. Police also said the shooter was dead inside the school, and the scene was secure.
It is just awful for the families of those killed by a cowardly psychopath attacking unarmed children. But these situations are preventable.
When will they ever learn.
Predictably all sorts of people are now calling fro gun control without actually considering what they are calling for.
No one has stopped to consider that schools in the US that forbid guns on the campus are creating target rich environments without the remotest possiblity of a criminal having to consider any return fire. In Connecticut their state gun laws specifically forbid guns on any school property
It is unlawful to possess a firearm on public or private elementary or secondary school property. This prohibition shall not apply to a person with a firearm carrying permit, with permission from school officials, or while traversing school property with an unloaded firearm for the purpose of gaining access to lands open to hunting or for other lawful purposes, provided entry is not prohibited by school officials.
How did that creation of a gun free zone work out for the kids?
School administrators have constantly said that schools should be gun free zones so that children can be safe…and month after month we see the proof that their own version of gun control actually makes matters worse.
Children are safe when people have the means to protect them. Disarming them just makes them targets for criminals.
Analyse the stats…there has never been a mass killing at either a gun shop or a gun club shooting range. Why is that? Well mainly because if anyone tried it they’d be swiss cheese in micro-seconds…the chances of them actually getting to kill anyone is remote.
There is a reason that psychopaths go on sprees at schools and cinemas and the like….it is because the chances of someone shooting back are remote.
The answer isn’t more gun control…we have seen how that is working…the answer is less gun control.
Watch Obama miss the boat however and move against the 2nd Amendment.
