Today the NRA spoke publicly for the first time since the Sandy Hook tragedy about how to prevent further mass shootings in our schools. Rather than go along with more gun control or banning of “assault weapons”, as the Democrats have proposed — The NRA was actually interested in solving the problem, so they put forth a solution that could actually work. “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun” Wayne LaPierre said during the press conference, while proposing that every school in America have an armed policeman assigned to it.
While he spoke, shameless protestors from “Code Pink”, a left wing organization that promotes being a victim apparently, made every effort to interrupt Mr. LaPierre. Shouting things like “The NRA has blood on its hands!” and “The NRA is killing our children!” — Code Pink should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. No organization in America puts so much money towards gun safety for kids, and gun training for our law enforcement community in order to stop gun violence.
Back to the proposal by the NRA, it’s amazing to see someone actually propose a solution that would work to stop gun violence in our schools. Mass shooters typically pick soft targets where they feel they can do the most damage. This is why they pick our schools, because they know they aren’t going to face another person there with a gun. The movie theater in Aurora was a “Gun Free Zone”, as well. If we don’t do something to address the issue of security in our schools, they will continue to be seen as “soft targets” by insane gunmen, and our children will continue to be victims of violence of all kinds. How long will it be until Al Qaeda catches on to this vulnerability, and attacks an elementary school with bombs and guns?
Ultimately, the choice is yours America. Do we want to continue raising an entire generation of victims who depends on the government for their every need. Do you want to tell your children that when a madman comes to kill them, their best defense is to lay down and wait to be murdered? Maybe you’d like to lie to them and tell them that there is no violence in the world, and that having an armed guard at their school would only escalate the situation?
I don’t know about you, but my children would feel a lot safer if they came to school in the morning to see an armed policeman watching over them. Taking away “assault weapons” from lawful gun owners is going to do nothing to address the real issue here. That’s how you can tell that Obama and the Democrats have no interest in actually solving this problem, but rather are using it to achieve political goals they’ve had for decades. They don’t care if your kids are actually safer in school, because all they care about is limiting gun ownership in American and weakening the second amendment.
When the gunman went room to room at Sandy Hook, the school principal and psychologist attempted to rush him, but were gunned down because they were unarmed and unprepared to deal with such a threat. When it comes time to make a choice America, ask yourselves which option will truly make your child’s school safer. Will taking away weapons from regular people make the difference when there are already 300 million guns dispersed across America? Common sense says no. Like Wayne LaPierre said earlier today, the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy who has a gun. Period.
