Sorry. I can't prevent my brain from performing logical computations and analysis.
Scenario 1: Teachers don't carry guns. Shooter kills 20 kids.
Scenario 2: Teachers carry guns. Shooter doesn't even get out of bed.
I wonder how many of those parents who lost their kids wish the teacher, or someone, was carrying. I bet it is 100%.
I welled up with tears today when I heard this story. Almost jumped in the van and went to get my daughter from kindergarten.
I go with scenario #2. The people that work at schools get a full background check, psych eval, carry a concealed firearm, and know how to use it.
These bastards won't be in such a hurry to get on the news, if they know they will be dropped the instant they pull out a gun.
The headline news will be......................"Another Tragedy Prevented". End of story.
I am not an athiest, and I am
praying for the poor families of these innocent victims. I'm sure that most of the parents of these 20 murdered kids, already have their Christmas presents wrapped for them. I can't possibly imagine their anguish.
