Though Friday’s tragic murder of 20 schoolchildren and seven adults happened in a small town in Connecticut, people across the globe were saddened by the unthinkable violence. Vigils and tributes were set up in churches and schools, on beaches and in sports arenas around the world.
I know we are all devastated by the Sandy Hook disaster as well as the disasters of other school shootings, but I believe this must be said: I am absolutely, OUTRAGED by the anti-gun zealots who just want to pass a few do nothing laws to “fix the problem” They blame gun advocates and organizations like the NRA for the killings. Yet shrink in horror at the thought of arming teachers, and sometimes even providing armed officers in schools.: actions that would most assuredly reduce the number of killings. In my opinion they share the blame for the number of children killed in these tragedies.
It’s OK for the president, senators and representatives to have armed guards and carry guns themselves. Same for Judges, courts, any celebrities. It’s OK for businesses and private citizens to arm themselves for self defense, but not SCHOOLS to protect our CHILDREN.
What is the matter with you people?
