Here we go again…

Another maniac opens fire in a school, and the conversation devolves into one of “getting guns off the streets” and of “gun violence” and similar. Notably, these efforts are not possible,  nor are they likely to prevent some imbalanced yahoo from going on a killing spree.

Why won’t these talking heads and other gun control advocate entertain the more rational approach of having armed protectors in the schools? What about educating the teachers and children into effective means of defending themselves and each other – or, simply, means of evacuating the premises?

Why will we entertain the argument that someone with a firearm shooting back may hit the innocent when THE PERSON FIRING ON THE INNOCENT IS MOST DEFINITELY HITTING THE INNOCENT? I personally am sick to death of this “societal norm” that thinks it better that our children be sitting duck than there be someone with them to, at the very least, limit the effectiveness of some lunatic with a gun.

So, fellow parents, grandparents, and rational citizens of this fine country: can we please turn the conversation in a direction that will preserve lives instead of promoting gun control? Please?!
