Is the Pakistan school massacre a warning shot across our bow? There is simply no way we have enough police to protect all of our schools for any length of time. The only practical way is to allow citizens the ability to practice their natural, civil and Constitutional rights to protect themselves and our children from such heinous crimes against humanity. Sadly, what I fear we will do is more security theatre, a (temporary) show of force to make the people feel safe (as opposed to being safe) until the shock passes . . .
And then we’ll go back to “business as usual”…until it’s not…and then we’ll wonder why it happened and what we could have done to prevent it. The answer is under our noses, vested by divine providence in our very being…the answer sits with every parent, teacher, school administrator and citizen.
Allow armed school carry. Eliminate gun free (i.e. crime encouragement) zones that are virtual welcome mats for this kind of horror to occur here.
