If you have kids, then, like most parents, they mean the world to you. You want them safe and protected, and you want them to have the chance to grow up to be happy, healthy, and well-adjusted adults.
There’s nothing surprising about that.
What is shocking to many people who actually understand the dynamics of gun violence and active shooters (and go here to learn that information if you don’t know it) is that a huge number of teachers, school administrators, and heads of teacher’s unions don’t understand gun violence and how active shooters work. No, those people, who are tasked with educating your children and keeping them safe while at school, think that guns are to blame, not the shooters.
That’s a huge problem because blaming the guns won’t stop people with evil intent from killing kids. Do you know what will, though? Trained teachers with guns, and one state has made huge leaps in that direction. Naveen Athrappully writes,
School teachers and other staff at educational institutions across the state of Ohio will now be allowed to carry firearms on campuses, including inside classrooms, after House Bill 99 came into effect this week.
The bill was signed into law on June 13 by the state’s Republican Gov. Mike DeWine. It allows school districts to decide independently whether teachers can be armed. Schools must inform parents if they allow armed staff on their premises. Those who are armed will be subject to annual criminal background checks.
The bill “does not require school districts to arm its teachers,” DeWine said at the time. “Every school district can make its own decision. This is a local choice not mandated by the state or governor. This bill is part of a comprehensive and layered approach to school safety and keeping kids safe in schools.”
Of course, anti-2A politicians in Ohio criticized the bill, saying that it wouldn’t decrease gun violence or keep children safe even as they hid behind the armed law enforcement officers all around them at their job place (the state capital).
The lack of self-awareness and hypocrisy is stunning.
But, at least, local school systems in Ohio can do what actually needs to be done to keep kids safe at school, now.
Why not remove all security around all government buildings and homes of all elected officials forcibly with death to all offenders that do not comply. The idiots want communism, so I say give it to them and wait about an hour and watch laws change .
I think all security/police/ law enforcement should be removed from all elected politicians’ offices and buildings. My bet is all far left as well as far right members would resign in short order.
It’s about time, however I think that these teachers should be required to have further training.
We must be sure they can handle the pressure of facing an active shooter
We don’t need someone freezing up and having the perpetrator getting their weapon also.
It’s about time teachers and staff should have been always trained and carry some kind of type of weapon guns whatever they need to help keep the kids safe right on Ohio hope every state follows you guys
I am so sick of pro 2nd and pro self defense sites that continue to let the anti gun crowd set the terms of the discussion.
The use of “gun violence” is so incorrect and useless for our use that it is pathetic.
The correct terminalogy is criminal violence with a gun.
Please stop falling for the communist left’s crap.
