“State law allows Montana school boards to let anyone carry a gun in schools,” billingsgazette.com reports. “Custer is one of only three that do — fewer than one percent of schools in a state that loves guns.” The rest of the article is incredibly depressing. Suffice it to say . . .
The arguments against “allowing” teachers to exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to bear arms are pathetic. Like this:
In Cut Bank, self-described “gun nut” and superintendent Wade Johnson has been on both sides of the debate. A few years ago, he asked school trustees for permission to carry a gun. They said no. And after reviewing research that showed New York City Police had hit their target 18 percent of the time in shootouts, he now agrees.
“That’s unacceptable in a school,” he said.
You know what’s unacceptable? The fact that my daughter, her classmates and teachers are undefended from a school shooter or a terrorist attack. Like tens of millions of other innocent lives.
This after the Sandy Hook spree killing. And the Belsan school siege, where terrorists held 1,100 people hostage — including 777 children. That ended with the death of 385 people. [Note: I make no apology for the picture at the top of this post.]
Could it happen at your kids’ school? Of course. Is there anyone there, on site, who’s prepared to defend the students, teachers and administrators by force of arms? And what happened to candidate Trump’s “day one” pledge to end “gun free zones”?
