Last week we noted that following the Covenant School shooting in Nashville, Volunteer State Gov. Bill Lee couldn’t manage to get his “red flag” introduced in the legislature, let alone get it passed. The law would allow the confiscation of guns without due process. After the session ended, Gov. Lee then called for a special session to consider the red flag laws at the end of summer.
Why the delay in such an “important” issue? Lee wants to give the mainstream media and the gun control lobby the entire summer to harass and pummel legislators into supporting the measure.
Right on cue, here come some naïve Tennessee public school students to offer their learned views about guns and gun rights . . .
WKRN has the
agitprop story . . .
Months after the Covenant School shooting, the debate over arming staff inside schools continues.
“I constantly have to ask the question, ‘Is this a day that a maniac with a gun comes into our schools? Is this a day? Is this our last day?’ We’re asking that within institutions that are supposed to protect us, sort of supposed to build us up,” said Seamus Purdy with the Tennessee Student Union.
Seamus clearly has the heart of a lion. Who taught him to “constantly” worry about a maniac coming into his school to kill people? Like racism, that kind of paranoia doesn’t come naturally, but is learned.
Following the shooting, calls for change were heard loud and clear both inside and outside the State Capitol….
Some proposed stricter gun laws to keep guns out of the hands of potential deadly mass shooters, while others suggested increasing the number of school resource officers and the possibility of arming teachers.
“More guns is not the solution when guns themselves have been the common denominator in all of these issues,” Purdy argued.
Purdy has much to learn. Not only are good guys with guns a viable solution, but they are the most effective solution to protecting our most valuable and precious assets – our children – from maniacs, terrorists and violent criminals.
Good guys with guns protect politicians, business leaders, and celebrities. Guns protect our money in banks and precious metals and gemstones in jewelry stores. Good guys with guns protect sensitive public places like courthouses and the White House.
What’s more, millions of Americans carry guns on a daily basis for their personal defense.
Yet young Seamus opines that more guns are not the solution. Maybe putting up more gun-free zone signs — the ones that criminals, terrorists, and lunatics so freely ignore — will do the trick.
Maybe someday Seamus and his little friend will understand what about 100 million Americans have come to understand: the only thing that stops bad people with evil in their hearts is a good guy or gal with a gun.
Along those lines, how many schools with armed staff have had students shot or killed during school hours? Anyone?
