When the first mass high school shooting occurred in Columbine, Colorado, like most everyone else in the United States, I was in a state of shock. The thought that two high school boys could convert a school campus into a war zone was very hard to fathom. Yet, here we are many school shootings later and it’s still happening because obvious changes that have nothing to do with gun control aren’t implemented.
Liberals market the entire problem as related to gun control. Conservatives point to Chicago as having the strictest gun control laws in the nation and also being the murder capital of the United States.
Everyone who knows me, is aware that I am not a fan of sport hunting. However, I am a fan of the Second Amendment, which keeps our beloved United States of America from ever becoming a tyranny. This is why I am a proud member of the National Rifle Association.
Even liberal actor Samuel L. Jackson admits that gun control is not the answer. Following the tragic Sandy Hook school shooting, Jackson told The Los Angeles Times –
“I don’t think it’s about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This (shooting) is about people who aren’t taught the value of life.”
This is why I was most disappointed to learn that students at the Los Alamitos Unified School District, with the support of many of their teachers, plan to walk off school grounds/out of class during the school day on Wednesday, March 14 to protest the Second Amendment.
Certainly, there needs to be a national discussion about SCHOOL SECURITY (which is NOT gun control). However, if the LAUSD teachers directly or indirectly support any walkout during the school day to demand gun control, it will mean that the District also supports gun control. After all, those are LAUSD employees!
And what about next month? Will there be a protest against the First Amendment? What about the Third Amendment? Oh heck, if liberals had their way, they would probably abolish all of the Amendments!
Yes, let’s have a discussion about SCHOOL SECURITY! If Americans refuse to protect our schools the same way we protect airports, banks, sports facilities, entertainment venues and government buildings, then there is sure to be another school shooting with deadly results. It’s just a guess as to when and where.
Let’s focus on SCHOOL SECURITY!
