To follow my story: (See Someone Asked Me Today How I Deal With...)
|Florida school shooting. Another horrific school shooting.|
Last week I went to the same Middle School that I used to attend to pick up my nephew. Things are different now from when I attended. Supposedly they are "safer" and the faculty is more aware. I beg to differ. Granted, when I attended, anyone could simply walk into the school. Doors were not locked.
I walked up to the doors, rang a bell and was buzzed in. I approached a desk with a volunteer sitting with her back against a wall. I gave them my license, explained why I was there and signed a paper. I also carried my large pocketbook. No one checked it. How did they know I didn't have a gun in it???????????????????????? How in the world is this any safer than when I attended school there?
I proceeded to walk through the hallways to the nurses office. Had there been a gun in my pocketbook, I could have shot up a whole lot of people and there wasn't anyone there who could have stopped me.
So they had my signature and name, big deal. Crazy people aren't concerned that.
People don't want guns in schools, but when a nut starts shooting, who do they call? The people with the guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then... there's guns in the school, which they said they didn't want. Go figure. Now they are HAPPY to have those guns in the school, hoping and praying those guns take out the shooter and save their loved ones.
I've heard people argue, "They will shoot the guard first." Who said there should be only one guard. If we go with that argument, then why do we have armed guards protecting our train stations, our politicians, celebrities, banks, etc? What's the point, they will just "shoot the guard first." Ridiculous statement if you ask me.

If armed guards are the norm from when kids start school, they will think nothing of it. If parents explained to children that the armed guards were there to keep everyone safe, same as police, they will be fine. I've never seen any child see a police office and tremble in fear. Most are intrigued and ask questions even about their guns.
I've seen the images of the kids terrorized by the mass shooters though! If that's not fear and sadness, I don't know what is. People are worried about kids being scared?? Well, they sure are scared when a lunatic comes in shooting, aren't they?
I say, have armed guards in all our schools, change policies to REALLY protect our kids, and stop these mass shootings. You won't stop it by creating more laws, by banning certain guns, etc. That's not the answer. (See The Horrific Events In Las Vegas) Criminals and crazy people don't follow laws and never will.
We must fight fire with fire. If the crazies and criminals have guns, we need trained personnel nearby with guns too!! We shouldn't have to wait for them to be called and wait for them to arrive. They should be on the premises ready to act immediately!
