Skip to comments.Armed Guard Saves School Last Week (Gun Control Freaks Wrong Again)?

Vice President Biden unfurled his genius during a Google+ fireside hangout last month stating that having armed guards in schools would be a terrible mistake.
Really, José? Why dont you rock up to Price Middle School in Atlanta on Monday morning and bray that insanity to the teachers and students who were spared an early grave because an armed guard took out the latest Lanza wannabe before he could waylay his peers?
Oh, Im sorry. Yall havent heard about the armed guard taking down a shooter who passed his gun through the metal detectors at an Atlanta middle school? My bad. I forgot that the Lamestream Media doesnt report on commonsense solutions to potential mass murders. It doesnt fit the fables theyre trying to foist upon us, ergo they give it dog meat during the evening news. God Im so stupid to assume that you had heard about it. Ill never learn. Click the link in the second paragraph if you want the lowdown on this situation, which totally validates the no-duh fact that a gun in the hands of a good dude stops bad guys before things get ugly. Durrrrrrrrr.
Anyway, back to Biden and his ilks brilliance on combating mass murderers. Biden said that not only do we not need armed guards in schools and that such a thing would be a mistake, but he also chimed in that what schools really need is a more robust staff of shrinks to dissuade Scooter, Jr. from strafing his mates.
Not wanting to be out-Bidened, this week the DHS rolled out an instructional video that counseled those in a mass-shooting scenario to
Number one: Call 911. Okay, this is generally a good idea. However, bear in mind that the average number of people killed by a mass murderer by the time the law has finally arrived is about fourteen. The average number of people killed when an armed civilian is there is 2.5. Thanks, DHS, for looking out for us. Remember, folks: When seconds count, the police are minutes away. Yep, the average response time for the police to get to such a situation is around five minutes and the average response time of my .357 magnum shooting Hornadys 125gr. FXT Critical Defense rounds out of my S&W Airlite is 1,200 feet per second.
Number two: Hide under the desk. Correct me if Im wrong, but I believe that the Virginia Tech tool who killed many co-eds shot them while they cowered under their desks. Cowering under a desk, playing opossum, is not the way this cowboy wants to be remembered. I think this is what is called the Pussification of the American male.
Number three: Use scissors. Another thing that floored me in the video was the DHS advising those who are forced to field such a crappy conundrum to pick up some scissors and confront the culprit. Scissors? Really? What kind of scissors, Janet? Pinking shears or Floyd the barbers clippers? Look, Im not beyond sticking a pair of scissors into a murderers skull if thats my only recourse, but I still think a gun would be a better weapon just like our president once said while campaigning: Never bring a knife to a gun fight. If the DHS wants to play Glock, paper, scissors with my life, Im going for Glock every time.
You know the Left yarbles on and on about how precious our children are and how they want to protect the kids, but they think armed guards on our campuses is oh, so cave-mannish. Meanwhile, they protect the president, congressmen, governors, and celebrities; they protect sporting events, jewelry stores, gold caches, banks, office buildings, factories and courts with guns, yet they defend our kids with Gun Free Zone signs and recommend teachers use scissors. Pardon my French, parents, but youre bat crap crazy and these mass shootings will go on and on if you keep listening to the asininities of the lunatic Left.
“Glock, paper, scissors.”
Classic. Well written article. The NRA should have produced an ad with Obama saying you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight.
I have come to the conclusion that the “pussification of the American male started with the GOPe.
Not really. 3000 fps is a little over 2000 mph.
18,000 mph is getting up into the asteroid or comet speed range.
Oops, must have fat fingered the little calculator. Thanks for catching that.
Also, when the police arrive, they’re first action is likely to setup a perimeter to protect themselves while the gunman shoots.
Had to look it up myself.
I know many bullets are supersonic, but not THAT supersonic.
Let’s get down to reality.
The average response time for the first cop to arrive may indeed be 5 minutes.
But in gun situations will that cop rush in and stop the shooter?or will he wait for backup. Yes. I believe wait for Backup is the answer.
Then when the backup arrives they call in the SWAT team, that’s another 20 minutes.
