Have you ever noticed that mass shootings are not taking place mainly or always in those cities or states who have very unrestrictive gun laws?
That's a little fact that the Obamedia doesn't want you to know. Even in that shooting on a military base the people there were not permitted to carry weapons unless they were on armed MP duty.
Well, it's only common sense. If law abiding citizens don't have the right to carry a gun for their own protection, then it's the violent criminals who get protected.
In one of the earlier school shootings, the news reports said, again and again, that a heroic teacher stopped the shooter before he could kill more. Only years later did I learn that what the teacher did was run out to his car in the parking lot and get his gun. I'd imagine that in a school parking lot today, no one would dare to have a gun locked in their car. And if they somehow did and stopped a shooting in its tracks with that gun, they would probably go to jail over it.
Once in Minnesota there was a school shooting at an Indian reservation school. In the pictures from the scene there was a prominent sign saying 'gun-free school zone'.
I longed to go back in time to replace that sign with one that said 'Warning: all staff members at this school are required to be armed. Teachers are required to carry two guns. Any act of violence you attempt to commit on these school grounds is at your own risk.' I would put up this sign even if the laws did not in fact require the teachers to be armed--- if, in fact, they were forbidden from having weapons.
The citizenry of a free country needs to be two things--- moral, and free to bear arms. Moral went out the window in schools when prayer and any mention of Christianity were forbidden--- in spite of the fact that Christian moral teaching was the original purpose of American public schools.
The freedom to bear arms is rapidly vanishing, and Obama has just promised more anti-gun laws. And when a stalked divorced woman is shot to death because she was not permitted to carry a gun to defend herself, the gun controllers will say 'see, we need more gun control'.
No. We need more responsible, moral people bearing arms, just like the school shooting teacher with the gun in his car. Every day an unknown number of lives are saved because somebody responsible had a gun.
But don't wait for the Obamedia to tell you about it.
