In the weeks after the deadly shooting in Parkdale, FL, pressure has been increasing on legislators to find some kind of solution to keep these kinds of mass slayings from happening. And while the Left is hell-bent on taking guns from law-abiding citizens, Conservative lawmakers are wisely seeking to protect the Second Amendment of the Constitution. President Donald Trump, no doubt going with his gut, favors the latter, and has discussed his plan to protect both our rights and our children.
“If you had a teacher who was adept with the firearm, they could end the attack very quickly,” he said this week, after meeting with families of shooting victims and survivors.
To put it simply, the President wants to give teachers already trained in firearms the right to carry concealed weapons onto public school campuses with the intention of stopping and even deterring potential shooters, going so far as to suggest teachers willing to carry receive bonuses as incentive.
The Liberals have already pushed back against the President’s suggestion, but it clear that the president understands it’s better to throw more guns at a problem than work to prevent it. Unfortunately, his solution doesn’t go far enough.
We have already seen how teachers have abused their power with so many cases of inappropriate sexual behavior between students and teachers. So what happens when we hand guns to these people who have already proven, in some cases, untrustworthy? We don’t know which teachers will abuse their power until the moment they do. In the same way, there’s no telling which teacher will become the active shooter they were hired to execute.
This is where the President’s proposal falls short, but there is an obvious solution that’s so painfully obviously it’s painful for me to consider how obvious it is. Not only do all the teachers need to be armed, so do all the students in the event a teacher loses their marbles and starts slinging lead at the class. In fact, we could go another step further, and allow classmates to shoot each other if they think someone is planning a shooting. And parents, if you think your kid has some mental health issue that isn’t being resolved, go ahead and pop them in the head before they take their misplaced aggression out on their peers.
We all know prevention only limits the liberties and infringes on the rights of law abiding citizens. The only way to keep people from being killed is to kill other people before they can kill more even though they may have already killed some but at least it wasn’t a bunch cuz they have no respect for human life so kill them all! Don’t tread on me!!
