WHEN Will THEY Get A Clue?

navy signMonday, the Naval Yard shootings. Previously, Fort Hood.  Too many school shootings.

It’s obvious ‘we’ (read the government) cannot protect everyone from everything.  Death is implicit in Life.  But setting up school children and military personnel and civilian contractors as clay pigeons to be destroyed at will by some loon is insane.

Or two loons.  Or a flock.  Regardless of their motive.  Is beyond shameful.

It’s criminal.  My solution?

Allow Enable appropriate adults to function in a security capacity at all schools, nationwide.  Allow Enable all adults who may carry firearms to do so.

no gunsAfraid armed adults will suddenly become homicidal/suicidal, as they do in countries where that is allowed?  Like Israel?  No, wait!  They not only have minimal occurrence of such events in Israel, terrorist attacks at schools in Israel are practically non existent!  Because the teachers and staff are armed!

And what about soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, contractors?  Do we still need to keep THEM disarmed while on base and on duty?  They’re military for chrissake!  Do you think Hasan or this latest clown would have had near the body count if their potential targets had returned fire?

We bloggers mostly hide behind our noms-de-blog while we preach incessantly about the individual’s rights to keep and bear arms.  What about the teacher and the sailor?  Or some schlub working on a military base.  Don’t they have the same rights, even a duty to protect?

Ever ran a stop sign?  Drove after ‘a few’?  Did the warning signs stop you?  Of course not.  And there are no drugs or guns where that sign is displayed.

Yeah, right.

Stop staking our children and military out for the slaughter.

What do they do when there’s an ‘active shooter’ at a military base or a school?  Call for people with guns to fix the problem.

Duh.

  1. The disarmament policy on military bases dates back to G.H.W. Bush the first, a Progressive/NWO guy of the first order.

    It’s still stupid & dangerous – to our military personnel.

  2. Read a comment that the Marine barracks were nearby. They have weapons but no ammo. Stupidity squared.

  3. “Stop staking our children and military out for the slaughter.”

    God Almighty, doesn’t that one statement sum up the mindset of the gun grabbers. The ends justify the means.

  4. I think of this stuff every time I have to go into the office – a government facility – in MD. Not only must I be unarmed, but the cubical farm is set up so that I would have no way of getting out. In the event of a shooter, I’d be trapped.

    • That’s very sad.
      I worked for a private facility with big signs – fortunately, they didn’t have metal detectors, but, as I was a ‘known quantity’, I couldn’t even discretely carry. I was once accused of doing so, with my sunglasses case on my belt!

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
