My Plan for Eliminating School Shootings
Townhall.com ^ | December 26, 2012 | Mike Adams

Posted on 12/26/2012 6:12:04 AM PST by Kaslin

As a candidate for president of the United States, it is incumbent on me to make a statement regarding the Sandy Hook massacre and to explain how my policies would help prevent other such massacres should I become president. As I discuss this sensitive topic, it is also incumbent on me to sound more rational and articulate than the incumbent. That will not be difficult.
 
As president, I plan to attack the issue in two ways. First, I will use the bully pulpit to influence voters and state lawmakers. Second, I will take direct action to influence the federal judiciary.
 
Plan A is to try to persuade states to replace teacher certification with CCW permit certification. We all know that the teacher certification process is a racket. It just means taking more classes from "education" professors who lack substantive knowledge in any specific area of expertise. So instead of having a college degree and teacher certification, I believe that states should make teachers have a college degree and a concealed weapons permit. This will pay off in three distinct ways if states also change their laws to allow those with permits to carry on campus.
 
1. Reduced violence. First and foremost, concealed weapons permits decrease violence. The rationale is simple if we consider that crime only happens when a motivated offender encounters a suitable target in the absence of a capable guardian. Everyone knows that the gunless are suitable targets for violent crime. This is particularly the case when there is no one around to guard them.
 
So my plan will turn these teachers into capable guardians. I really think everyone will benefit when teachers stop taking "social justice in the classroom" and other silly education classes in order to be certified to teach our kids. Simply put, there can be no social justice when children are being slaughtered in the schoolhouse.
 
2. More male teachers (and fewer metrosexual students). Some have suggested that most female teachers would not feel comfortable around guns. So they might be deterred from teaching if they have to go through weapons certification, which requires firing a weapon. This is not a problem as far as I am concerned.
 
For far too long, men have been grossly underrepresented in the teaching profession. This has had a profound impact on young men. From kindergarten to high school graduation, they are too often in the position of trying to please a female authority figure. This lack of balance affects their relationships with both women and men. A constant concern with pleasing women eventually turns a man into a woman. That is why we have so many young adult metrosexual males talking about their feelings.
 
Simply put, having gun toting male role models in the classroom will be good. Having your student taught by Ted Nugent just might keep him from becoming Ted Baxter.
 
3. Fewer liberals in the teaching profession. For years, conservatives have been looking for a cure to the problem of liberal indoctrination in our schools. You are reading the solution right now. Clearly, most liberals would rather be unemployed than to have to touch a weapon. The weapon is a reminder of the fallen of nature of man. Liberals know that if man is not good, then liberalism is wrong.
 
Liberals who care enough about liberalism to teach it for a living would rather be dead than wrong. Some might say I'm dead wrong about this one. Actually, I am alive and I am right. And you know it. That's why I'm going to be your next president.
 
Plan B: Speaking of the presidency, I will be tasked with choosing judges when I become president. When I do, there will be a Roe v. Wade litmus test. This will indirectly affect violence toward children in two distinct but interrelated ways.
 
1. Creating a culture of life in the long term. Liberal politicians like to pretend that they care about dead children - especially after a school shooting occurs. The very day some lunatic kills twenty children in a school shooting, liberals are right there on television lobbying for stricter gun control measures. The very next day they are lobbying to preserve abortion rights - even though the procedure kills 3000 innocent children daily. We seldom give much thought to the hypocrisy - even though the unborn child dismembered with a scalpel is every bit as human as the kindergartner shot with a gun.
 
We did not get this calloused overnight. And our hearts will not be softened overnight. It will take years of decisions by judges who understand that no innocent child deserves to die - not even if his dad was a rapist. My judicial appointments will all be sworn to uphold life. There will be no diversity or tolerance on this issue during my administration.
 
2. The Roe litmus test immediately filters out anti second amendment judges. Have you ever noticed that people who think professional wrestling is real are the same people who think the moon landing was fake? Similarly, judges who believe the word "abortion" is written in the constitution are the same ones who cannot see the word "arms" written in the constitution. By filtering out pro abortion judges, we will also filter out pro gun control judges.
 
Forgive me if my response to the recent school shootings is terse or if my approach to reducing them seems simple. In some ways, the issue is very simple. But turning the tide on the problem of school shootings will require patience and resolve. With most politicians, that’s where things get complicated. But I plan to keep shooting straight with you, no matter how unpopular my policies may be.
 
In a nutshell, I believe that effective gun control means shooting with both hands on your weapon. It doesn't mean tying the hands of capable guardians and turning innocent children into suitable targets for motivated offenders.

Because we live in very dark, difficult, and dangerous times, sadly, these shootings will continue.

Why not do something that will really stop it?

Ban the use of the mind altering SSRI anti-depressant drugs that are linked to virtually EVERY one of these “events”.

Even 60 Minutes had a segment recently that showed clinical studies which proved they had “no therapeutic effect”.

What does it take for the REAL cause to be focused on?

Sadly, Adams takes what is a reasonable idea espoused by others long before him, and turns it into a caricature either through sloppy writing or sloppy thinking.

I came away from his article thinking he was actually an opponent of this idea.

The full idea is this: Every teacher should also be a trained law enforcement officer. Somehow tying this in to metrosexuals and female authority figures only gives ammo with which opponents can caricature a good idea.

I haven’t heard this mentioned. Schools are surrounded by homes and cops live in some of those homes as well as ex-military and the fire department. My kid is a fireman and in his graduating class, 31 of the 32 graduating had served time in Iraq.

My kid and his co-workers would not hesitate to take action.

If these men were to give their phone numbers to the principal of the school the response time would be significantly reduced. There would be no protocol, the guy would simply be taken out.

The simple fact is that no one is going to end school shootings.

I don’t know the correct term but the numbers are statistically so low that that you’re left with totally random causes that can’t be mitigated effectively. Eventually we would end up with all schooling taking place in steel reinforced concrete bunkers in the home with the child never leaving and lessons delivered via video.

The poster did not say eliminate public schools, and not everyone can afford private schools or is qualified to home school. So is your suggestion that only the rich educate their kids. I hope your not serious. As that will send us back for centuries.

> Get rid of schools, then no school shootings.

BINGO!!

“Public” schools constitute the biggest, most expensive, most subversive entitlement program in the country!

“Public” school “districts” are better understood by their Marxian name, “school collectives”.

No matter how much money you give them, it is never, ever enough. They always “need” more.

We must return to the distributed cooperative school system, the one devised by Noah Webster, which includes school cooperatives formed by neighbors and families and groups of homeschoolers.

What we have now is the collective school system crystallized by Karl Marx and promoted by “progressives” like Horace Mann and Thomas Dewey, the “father” of “progressive education”. Since the realization of their efforts, education has become progressively worse.

As a bonus question, see if you can answer this.

What is the difference between a cooperative and a collective?

Apply liberal logic. If eliminating guns will solve gun crime eliminating public schools will solve shootings in them.

I’m all for eliminating the whole public school system but agree that we need a means educating those too poor for private or incapable of home schooling.

Personally I’d strip the federal and state money from the schools and place the responsibility in local hands. I’d also make teachers independent contractors. It means the schools will have to go without a lot of extraneous crap but that’s fine too.

Aside from forced support through taxes I'm with you. The whole public school system has been "liberalized" from top to bottom and anyone without the courage to admit it is an idiot or a coward. It goes all the way from the colleges that teach teachers to be William Ayers disciples through people like Arne Duncan, to school boards who never fail to find new ways of spending money to marxist teachers who think the only solution to every problem is to take more from someone else.

Until there's a concerted and effective effort to seize control of the whole system there's no point in continuing to fund it. Its like trying to fight WWII while leaving Hitler's factories intact.

Without drastic change from top to bottom we have zero chance of winning America.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Kaslin, ....Can I persuade you to think differently about this?

The government schools must be abolished. Why?

From their very beginnings ( mid-1800s) government schools were a socialist-entitlement. They were and are a single-payer, compulsory-use, compulsory-funded socialist entitlement!

Nothing good can come from that. In fact, it only took one to three generations of this government school socialist-entitlement monstrosity to give us Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt! Those of my father, grandmother, and great grandparents voted these guys into office and they were born in 1913, 1894, and 1860s.

It didn't take long for the American people to learn to be comfortable with socialism in their socialist-entitlment, single-payer, and compulsory-use schools.

Hire divorcees,teach them to shoot revolvers, .357 mag, loaded with #4 buck and aim at the testicles..school shootings will come to an abrupt halt, then as soon as we solve that problem, hire for security in Afghanistan to do the same thing...same result. The guys doing the school shooting don't deserve testicles and the arabs carry what little brains they do have done there and sending them to see their 72 virgins without nuts would be proper punishment!..

Kaslin....I ask. Would you do an experiment?

For every argument used to defend our nation’s socilaist-entitlement K-12 schools, please substitute the words SLAVE and/or SLAVERY.

You will soon see that the same arguments used to defend compulsory-funded, and compulsory-use schooling are the **SAME** ones used to defend slavery in the 19th century.

In one small way though the institution of slavery was not as evil as government schooling. At least no one was forced by the government to pay taxes to support slavery or forced by the government to buy a slave.

I went on tax strike when Obama became the presidential candidate. So I do not support public schools in any way, nor any facet or form of this administration. That’s all there is to it.

I’ve got property taxes so I’m stuck paying for the expensive needless toys the local school board just can’t live without.

Now I’m paying for a new “practice gymnasium” that the school board wants for no other reason then other schools have them. It was voted down in May on the ballot with the presidential primary, they skipped it on our state primary ballot in August only to sneak it through on a ballot by itself in September.

In college, thirty years ago, one of the parents called it, "Neo-Penitentiary Architecture." I laughed so hard I've never forgotten it.

How do you do that without be confronted by armed police and courts?

Government schools have turned us into a nation of renters. The government is the landlord. Fail to pay government rent ( Oops! “school taxes”) and the government evicts you from its property.

Finally....Everyone pays school taxes, even you. How?

Answer: Businesses pay school taxes and this is incorporated into the price of every object or service every citizen must use.

High school taxes make our products more expensive for our nation’s businesses to produce. This makes them less competitive. This increases the movement of jobs overseas and increases our nation’s unemployment. It’s like pulling on a lose string on a sweater. Everything is knitted together.

He's very good except for this statement:

From kindergarten to high school graduation, they are too often in the position of trying to please a female authority figure.

It only gets worse after they get married.

My father told me to never trust a man who claims to be the head of his household. The reason: He will lie about other things too.
