School board members in Keene, Texas voted Wednesday night to allow some staff members to carry guns in the schools.
As Reported by KDFW, the Independent School District in Johnson County, south of Fort Worth, has four campuses.
Certain staff would be approved to carry guns would be selected and and it was not mandatory. The weapons would be provided by the district.
Other Texas school districts have approved similar measures.
Don’t tell me that a sign in front of a school declaring that it is armed will not deter a criminal.
It really is a 2 part simple argument.
First part is defense. I have the God given right to defend myself, my family, and if need be…others around me.
The second part is pure logic.
Two places, side by side, whether it be a home, theater, school, business, or any other place:
One has a sign that says “No Guns!”
The other has a sign that says, “We’re Packin’!”
Ask yourself, which ‘Place’ is a thug going to chose to walk into for nefarious purpose.
Ask yourself and answer honestly…which will a thug pick?
There is a real reason why over the last decade, as gun ownership has sky rocketed, gun crime has dropped dramatically!
Not only in Virginia:
“According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent.”
But the public has been conned by the enemies of the 2nd Amendment:
“Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, today 56% of Americans believe gun crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% think it is lower.”
But every day we see stories where people are able to defend themselves because they own a guns: Clerk shot man in alleged robbery in East Price Hill
John Lott, the author of “More Guns, Less Crime” and The Bias Against Guns – Why Almost Everything You’ve Heard About Gun Control is Wrong says it best!
Concerning a 2002 shooting that left three dead at the Appalachian Law School in Virginia:
“Yet in this age in which media and government officials clamor in favor of “guns-free school zones,” one fact was missing from virtually all the news coverage: The attack was stopped by two students who had guns in their cars.”
How would the San Bernardino Massacre been different of someone in that room had been packin’?
Mr. Lott also points out:
“National Institute of Justice survey found that 74 percent of the convicts who had committed a burglary or violent crime agreed: “One reason burglars avoid houses when people are at home is that they fear being shot.”
It is simple. Gun Free Zones do not work. Thugs do not follow rules.
If they did… every bank would have a “Robbery Free Zone” sign on their front door.
That would be silly, wouldn’t it?
