The polls indicate that Americans support more gun control right now, but are also very skeptical that more gun control will reduce violence or mass public shootings. We typically see such increased support temporarily after mass public shootings. To win the debate, proponents of the right to self-defense must explain how their proposals are practical. They must explain how gun control actually makes people more vulnerable to attack.
Everyone wants to do something about mass public shootings. But while gun control advocates call for more gun control within an hour of attacks, such as the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, prominent Republicans and even the NRA often go completely silent in the week after the attack. Gun control advocates proposals may have the appearance of swift action, but ideas such as universal background checks really have nothing to do with stopping these attacks.
The delayed response of the NRA and others lets gun control advocates claim: Those who oppose reforms say nothing can be done. Gun control advocates claim to be the only ones who care, and many Americans go along with the idea that further regulation is the only available option. After all, something must be done, and at least gun control advocates are trying to stop attacks.
Of course, the NRA has never claimed that nothing can be done. When NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre spoke out eight days after Parkland, he called for armed security officers in schools. The NRAs National School Shield program has helped lead that effort. The Republican governor in Florida got legislation allocating half billion dollars a year to put one police officer in each public school. . . .

There are six dead adults at Sandy Hook that would prefer to have a gun of their own if they could only have a do-over.
If he carried, he and perhaps a dozen students would still be alive.
Arm the Aarons!
Seriously, if it saves just one life....
We have to DO SOMETHING!!!
Saving lives goes against everything Democrats believe. They want to sacrifice lives to push an agenda of government control.
Ain t about guns. Get smart. They are coming. Question is ya got the balls to play.
Have you ever noticed that people who are against a thing have a propensity to twist what it really is? I’ve noticed several teachers that are against this saying that they don’t want to be forced to carry a gun at school. Yet that is not at all what is being talked about. Rather, it is giving them PERMISSION to carry, IF THEY SO CHOOSE.
And it’s a darned good idea.
It’s so sad that since libs took away the right for teachers to discipline students we now have to resort to killing a few really bad students who could have been saved with some discipline.
When young minds learn they can get away with anything without fear of retribution they quickly go downhill.
It is not ARMING TEACHERS. It is ending the practice of DISARMING TEACHERS at the schoolhouse door.
“Lord of the Flys”
Comes to mind.
“Let us save lives by putting more guns in the hands of teachers.....”
“CONSERVATINE teachers”, the liberals ones will pee their pants before pulling out a gun.
Bad things start to happen when you put more than 500 to 1000 people in the same place.
Deconsolidate the Schools
