Ducking Reality
Flopping Aces ^ | 12-30-12 | Skookum

The truth is we need real professionals to implement security devices and techniques in our schools to at least make it more difficult for homicidal maniacs to ply their trade in our schools. Arming teachers who are capable and have the guts to confront evil, perhaps even paying them more to attend seminars to train in procedures, would be a first step in making our schools more secure. I am talking about seminars taught by professional SWAT and Special Forces instructors, not incompetent boobs like Janet Napolitano. We can’t prevent school shootings, but we can damn well minimize the damage inflicted upon our children. We have the people with the expertise, it is time to put their abilities and expertise to good use and forget this idea of the cowardly response and expecting teachers and children to die while waiting for the police. It is time to be proactive and prepare for the worst, we can then hope and pray our preparations are never put to use.

To begin the preparation for the type of terrorism of Sandy Hook (oh my God! Did I say the politically incorrect word “Terror”) and the terror of Beslan, we must first admit that there is not only the possibility, but that it has already occurred on multiple occasions. Our administration, ahem, our president, seems to be ready to piss his trousers at the possibility or suggestion that fanatics from a certain Middle Eastern religion might be capable of committing “Terror”, sorry folks, you can go with the flow and stick your head in the dirt like an ostrich or you can discount the foolish notions of our president and face reality; we are likely to have an act of terror by a group of Muslim fanatics, it is only a matter of time. Do we want to provide willing victims or do we want to respond immediately with lethal force. Obama and Napolitano are intent on emasculating those who would be able and willing to resist such a situation, so we can sit back and watch the silly perverted circus elephants do their clumsy dance or we can demand that our leaders face this stark reality forming in front of us.

Our government and our ever fearful cowards, say that terrorist attacks are relatively rare events and that taking countermeasures can tend to alarm and cause anxiety among the children. After all, our fearless leader of Homeland Security feels the best way to combat terrorism is to deny that terrorism has happened. Major Hassan must be content with the title of perpetrator of Workplace Violence, like the case of the flipped out clerk who throws the cash register through the front window.

Our official, but unadvertised stance is if you continuously deny terror took place, it didn’t really happen. However, the dead are still dead and the maimed are still maimed, while Hassan tries to fight to wear a beard in the courtroom, like a proper terrorist.

Our Liberals, like our president and the empty feed sack heading up Homeland Security feel that confronting the possibility of another Columbine or Sandy Hook is unnecessary, because the chances of them happening again is so remote; yet, they and their loved ones live with armed security. Many of our citizens agree, saying the money should be spent in the community, thus helping the president with his Wealth Redistribution. I say, “Bull Shit” not confronting the possibility of terror in our schools makes the deniers and the naysayers complicit in all terrorist attacks in our schools from this point forward.

We can’t prevent school shootings . . .

I respectfully disagree. Training and arming both teachers and school administrators, such that any aggressor will be quickly dispatched, is a strong preventative, IMHO.

The problem:

Each and every “educator” has from their sperm+egg origin been inculcated in the anti-gun, anti-self defense mantra. They would NEVER have been allowed in the (useless) “education” classes if they had ever had an ounce of intestinal fortitude to even CONSIDER the concept.

We’ll have to hire guards (whom the educators will shun) until a new generation is raised.

I think good training is a good Idea.

Just because one is SWAT/ speical forces trained doesn’t make one a good instructor.

Kind of along the same line as George Zimmerman repeatedly smashing his nose into Trayvon Martin’s fist in an attempt to inflict injury on the person of St. Skittles.

Not every least not this one. A new philosophy is emerging whereby teachers and students are taught to “Fight Back” and try to overwhelm the attacker. Some would die but cowering in a corner causes all to die. Right now just teachers are taught these tactics but soon students will also be trained in these tactics also. Some teachers here at my school are CC but I’m sure they don’t have their gun with them. Safe Zone yah know.

Yeah. Interesting that all these mass shootings in school did not really take off until the Gun Free School Zone act was repassed in 1996.

Disastrous Gun Law Sparked School Shootings
