School Shooting Prevention: Students for 2nd Amendment rights, Against Gun Control Walkout

School Shooting Prevention:

Students for 2nd Amendment Rights, Against Gun Control Walkout

Students Send Emails opposing March 14 Gun Control Walkout

ByBen Shapiro

 

Advocates for this new march say that there is an agenda: gun control. But that’s not the real heart of the march. Students feel compelled to walk out by peer pressure, lest they be labeled uncaring about their fellow students. I’ve received dozens of letters from students expressing exactly this concern, and wondering why only one side of the political agenda is being handed credibility by the media.

Here are some of them:

  • From a high school junior today: “honestly it’s like the Women’s March. There is no single consolidated argument, just a loose collection of rants that obscure the main point).”
  • From a 16-year-old high school girl: “I was planning on not participating in the walkout. I do not see the point in leaving class to simply walk outside, stand and talk with peers for 17 minutes, and return to class. The act of walking out of class to ‘protest school violence’ does not seem to have a target audience, even though they may have a news crew, it is doubtful that the students in Florida will see the actions of our school’s walkout as a stand with solidarity. I also support the 2nd Amendment and see this walkout as another opportunity for students and their parents to attack that amendment and my support of gun control…I do see that my refusal to participate may be seen as unsympathetic or cruel. My brother, who is a freshman, is being pressured in class to participate.”
  • From a 17-year-old high school student: “tomorrow my school is having a walkout at 10:00 ‘for the 17 students who were killed in the Parkland, Fl shooting.’ The walkout, however, here at my school, is not really about that. It is being promoted by an anti-gun/leftist political agenda that I just don’t and can’t support, especially using the 17 kids that were MY AGE as a platform. I was wondering what you would say to people who want to call me ‘insensitive’ and ‘a terrible person.’”
  • From another 17-year-old high school student: “The reason I am emailing is because my school is having a walkout on March 14th. They say in an email that this walkout is to advocate for gun reform but they also say that we are walking to honor the victims of the parkland massacre. I am in favor of walking to honor the victims, but not in favor of promoting gun reform. I feel like I have to choose between going against my political values or looking like a bad person. I need help. What do I do?”
  • From another high schooler: “My high school is participating in the walkout on Wednesday, and I am unsure what to do. I am very against gun control and don’t want to protest congress for something they are doing right, if that makes sense. However, I don’t want to be singled out by students as someone who ‘doesn’t care about the students who died.’ Should I participate and conform to avoid humiliation and honor the students or should I remain in class alone? I don’t know if the walkout is more about gun control or honoring the students.”

I’ve received dozens more emails just like this. Students are rightly concerned that they will be ostracized by their peers and humiliated by school administrators for failing to be used as props in a leftist-organized march.

There’s always something troubling about school walkouts as a strategy for change. Our educational system is awful enough without students spending less time in class, encouraged by their teachers, so that the media can use pictures of children standing up for a gun control agenda. And there’s something even more troubling about the eagerness of the Left to use children as its spokespeople, without any hint that the kids in question have studied the issues enough to actually attain any level of expertise.

Then there are students who want to do something to counter the propaganda, and who will be ignored by the media:

  • From a 16-year-old high schooler today: “It is ignoring the fact that most gun violence is against blacks with handguns. Ignoring that fact is by definition racist. A nation-wide walk out for a majority white 1 percent is real white privilege and ignorant of the real problem, most gun violence is against blacks with handguns, not assault weapons, and ignoring that would from its core be racist and ignorant.”
  • From a high school senior: “Please let me start by saying that I respect the Left’s position on the walkout tomorrow, but I do not agree with their solution. I have decided to organize my own walk out to push Right wing beliefs on how to stop school violence…Respect other’s opinions and others will respect yours. ‘Here to save lives. Pro-Second amendment.’”

These students will not be featured by the media. I’ve recommended that they walk out alongside their classmates, but carry signs reading, “Protect My Life — Arm Law-Abiding Citizens!” Presumably, they’d be ignored even if they did. But like the Women’s March, this walkout is a form of social pressure designed for a photo-op. And that’s too bad. If its advocates want gun control, they ought to call it a gun control march. To suggest that anyone who doesn’t support gun control doesn’t support children — even pro-Second Amendment children themselves, who choose not to support the agenda — is vile bullying.

School Shooting Prevention: See Something, Say Something

School Shooting Prevention:

See Something, Say Something

Stunning list: Cops stop dozens of school attacks before they happen

Chelsea Schilling

When it comes to horrific school attacks and shootings, “See something, say something, do something” is apparently a policy that really does save innocent lives.

Police, schools and parents are stopping school attacks across America by taking the threats seriously, reporting them and quickly arresting the students before there’s ever a massacre.

In the case of Nikolas Cruz, the shooter who opened fire on students at a Florida high school on Valentine’s Day and killed 17 people, reports about his disturbing behavior apparently came flooding in to authorities. Cruz’s friends saw something. They said something. But authorities apparently didn’t do anything.

Ariana Lopez, a former friend of Cruz, said she told school authorities “multiple” times in 2016 and 2017 about Cruz’s “disturbing” behavior.

“He used to sell knives out of his lunchbox, which I thought was like insane because you can’t have knives … [in] a school,” she told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “He would talk about how he sympathized with Syrian terrorists and how people who opposed them should be killed.”

Lopez also said Cruz would behave violently toward his ex-girlfriend, toward her and toward her friends.

“He talked about killing our parents, our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends,she said. “He would hit [his ex-girlfriend]. He would threaten her. He would threaten her family and her friends, for talking to other guys.”

Lopez said she and her classmates weren’t surprised to learn the shooter was Cruz: “Even before they announced that he was the shooter, we all knew it was Nik. He was the only person that we could think of that would do something like this because it was obvious that he had the power to do this.”

Cruz was also reported to the FBI and police, according to reports. The FBI failed to act on a tip that Cruz sought to “kill people” and there was “potential of him conducting a school shooting.” The FBI received a phone call on Jan. 5 from a person who was seeking to report Cruz’s disturbing behavior and social media posts. The FBI admitted it didn’t follow protocols and assess the situation as a threat. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called for an “immediate review” of the case.

“It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed,” Sessions said Friday. “We see the tragic consequences of those failures.”

Cruz also had dozens of run-ins with police dating back to 2010. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told Fox News there were “20 calls for services in the last few years.” Cruz was never arrested. He had reportedly thrown things, fought with his mother, acted out in violence, talked about hurting himself and said he would buy a gun. In 2017, Cruz was expelled from school for “disciplinary problems.” One report indicated that bullets were found in his backpack.

A YouTube user in Mississippi, Ben Bennight, said he called the FBI last September to report that a person called “nikolas cruz” had written, I’m going to be a professional school shooter” in the comments section under a video. FBI agents visited Bennight following the tip, but nothing came of the report.

In just the last several days and weeks, authorities have become hyper-vigilant in responding to threats of school shootings. Now police are cracking down, arresting students who threaten the lives of other students, teachers and administrators.

Not every case involved firearms. Some students possessed knives. Others included a crossbow and machetes.

WND has compiled the following list of recent school attacks that were stopped before they ever happened – thanks to quick actions of police, school officials, concerned parents and students who are boldly speaking up and taking action to prevent the loss of another innocent life.

Rapidly growing list of recently thwarted school attacks:

School Shootings Prevention: put Police Officer at School because Gun Free Zones Don’t Work

School Shootings Prevention:

Put Police Officer at School  because Gun Free Zones Don’t Work

Rush Limbaugh

Put Police Stations in Schools?

RUSH: So the point is you’ve got armed police in the schools now who are

CALLER: That is correct.

RUSH: — actually on duty and, as such, in their offices, which are at the schools?

CALLER: That is correct.

RUSH: Okay. So how many people have been killed?

CALLER: Zero.

RUSH: Really? Zero.

CALLER: It works. We’ve had great success with it.

RUSH: Now, are these —

CALLER: One side note —

RUSH: Are the officers that are in these satellite offices in the schools, they are side-armed? Their weapons are visible?

CALLER: That is correct.

RUSH: Not concealed. And they’re in uniform, so they’re not plainclothes. So they’re plainly visible and it’s obvious that they’re police officers armed? Everybody in the school where those cops are can tell that about them?

CALLER: That is correct. They’re parked out in front in the parking lot.

Now, stop and think of that as an idea. Instead of teachers and security people with concealed carry — which, look, I see the problem with that. There’s no perfect solution here. But I’ll tell you, we know enough now to know that all this rage and anger at the NRA is totally worthless. It’s misdirected. It is a waste of time. The NRA has no culpability in what happened at that high school. It’s stupid and a waste of time to get mad at them! Stupid and a waste of time to get mad at Trump. So when that happens, you can readily identify a political agenda in action and not a serious discussion of solutions.

Imagine establishing a tiny police office in every school. Just like you’ve got the school nurse, you have the school doctor, you have the school STD director, you’ve got the school police. Except that they are actual police from the community, but their desks are in the school and not at the police department. How many of you, where you live…? You know, you go to the mall, and there’s a little kiosk where it’s a satellite police department? This may be actually something to build on. You talk about uniformed police readily identifiable.

They’re carrying their sidearms. Nothing concealed. By definition, they are trained and ready,

Why Gun-Free Zones in Schools?

CALLER:  Rush, everything on this planet that has any value whatsoever — whether it be a Picasso or bar of gold — is guarded with firearms.  I don’t understand why people don’t think that their children are just as valuable as a bar of gold, a dollar bill, or a Picasso.  I’m not talking about the media or the liberal legislators.  I understand what game they’re playing.

I’m talking about people who have children in school who are against arming people to protect their children.  I can’t wrap my head around the mind-set! When they take their children to a museum, there’s an armed guard there, and the children understand that the armed guard is there to protect them.  Why wouldn’t they understand that the armed guard at their school is there to protect them?

Rush:

A football coach died shielding students.  He took the bullets.  Imagine if he had had access to a weapon to shut it down.  People are starting now to make sense of this, and they’re making comparisons like I did with air marshals.  I made the comparison that we arm every public entity. We have security — armed, professional security — at every public entity including airports, including malls, including stadiums.  Everywhere except in the schools!  Everywhere except the schools.

Father of Murdered Student

Despite all of the school shootings there have been, despite all the mass murder, not one step has been taken to actually stop it.  Not a step has been taken to actually prevent it.  Since Columbine, there hasn’t been anything done to prevent this.  Since Columbine, we’ve had one answer: “Damn that NRA!  Damn politicians that accept money from the NRA.  Damn those guns.”  That’s been it.  That’s the sum total.  Here is the father who was at the White House listening session yesterday afternoon.  His name is Andrew Pollack.  He spoke about his 17-year-old daughter, Meadow, who was killed in the Parkland shooting.

POLLACK:  We protect airports.  We protect concerts, stadiums, embassies, the Department of Education that I walked in today that has a security guard in the elevator.  How do you think that makes me feel?  In the elevator, they got a security guard. I’m…  I’m very angry that this happened, ’cause it keeps happening.  9/11 happened once, and they fix everything.  How many schools, how many children have to get shot?  It stops here with this administration and me.  I’m not gonna sleep until it’s fixed — and, Mr. President, we’re gonna fix it.

RUSH: I checked out a little bit more of the White House meeting going on right now, state and local officials about gun safety. I tell you what, Trump is on a roll here on concealed carry. I mean, he sounds like he’s really advocating it now, which I can tell you is causing conniption fits in the newsrooms and studios of Drive-By Media carrying this. Their heads are exploding right now. This is picking up momentum. It’s picking up steam in terms of Trump explaining it to people, how it would work, why it’s a good idea.(paraphrasing) “Can you imagine a teacher that used to be a Marine,” he said, “an expert already in handling firearms. Would you have a problem, would you know that your child is safe if that teacher was able to deal with –” by the way, concealed carry already is in the schools. Are you aware of that? The bad guys. The bad guys show up, you can’t tell they’ve got a gun until they bring it out and start opening fire. Concealed carry, Mr. Toobin, is already there. Concealed carry, Senator Murphy, is already there. The hope is that whoever is carrying never has to use it.

 The idea is deterrence.

If a perp knows that he’s gonna get shot — I have heard the reaction, “They know they’re gonna get shot. It’s suicide by cop in there. These bad guys, they want to die.” Well, this guy Cruz doesn’t want to die. I think it’s an example of the indoctrination that has gone on for decades in relationship to children and guns being a horrible, horrible thing.

“A teacher would have a concealed gun on them,” Trump told more than 40 people in the State Dining Room. “They would go for special training.

“They would be there — and you would no longer have a gun-free zone.

“A gun-free zone to a maniac is, ‘Let’s go in and let’s attack’ — because bullets aren’t coming back at us.”

Trump noted that, on average, a school shooting lasts about 3 minutes, with first responders generally arriving within as long as 8 minutes.

CNN Faces Growing Criticism Over Use of ‘Traumatized’ Children to Push Anti-Gun Agenda

School Shooting Prevention and How To Protect Our Children—Chuck Norris

School Shooting Prevention and How To Protect Our Children

ALERT: We don’t need to wait for Washington or our state’s capitols to bring about needed change to protect our kids. We even have armed guards now in front of many grocery stores and restaurants, but we can’t or won’t post them at our schools?!

A guaranteed remedy to reduce gun violence at schools

Chuck Norris

What would you do if someone kept breaking into your house? What would you do if someone kept threatening – even worse, killing – your loved ones inside when they weren’t expecting it? What would you do? You would do whatever is necessary to save them, right? At very least, you would likely start by bolstering and further safeguarding your entrances, right?

Hire Trained Vets as School Marshals

Who among our fine law enforcement or military personnel (in any branch) wouldn’t consider it their greatest duty and honor to take a paid or volunteer shift as a guard in front of our schools protecting those precious souls?

Can any rational, law-abiding American give me a single good reason why we wouldn’t have armed security at the primary entrances of every school across our union? Does anyone really not believe an armed guard would help deter criminals or crazies from entering? Even if they tried to scale in another way, they would know armed security is a new normal for school safety and that guards are present on campus.

I find it absolute lunacy and abhorring that we protect with a gun every important institution and person of notoriety across the country, but we leave U.S. children – our national treasures – to be prey of the predators of gun-free zones where children all gather in mass for nearly eight hours a day.

Twenty-eight years ago, in 1990, then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., introduced the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 into the Senate, and it prohibited “any unauthorized individual from knowingly possessing a loaded or unsecured firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.” It was passed by Congress and signed by President George H.W. Bush.

It doesn’t apply if the weapons are ‘approved by a school in the school zone.’”

Ninety-eight percent of U.S. public mass shootings occur in gun-free zones – the Florida school being one of them, according to the Crime Prevention Resource Center.

If I were the president or a member of Congress, I would work immediately to repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act, to free local communities to better protect their children. But, in almost half the states of our union, we don’t need to wait for Washington or our state’s capitols to bring about needed change to protect our kids.

As even NBC News had to report: “The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 prohibits anyone from having a firearm in a school zone. But that law includes the same exception recognized [in 17 U.S. states]: It doesn’t apply if the weapons are ‘approved by a school in the school zone.’”

Let’s start by taking the most obvious step as our first step. It’s one everyone (Republican, Democrat, independent, old and young) should be able to support.

Four years ago, I wrote a four-part series on reducing violent crime in America, especially in schools. Everything I wrote still stands. To educate yourself more about this issue, please check out my series below. Most of all, keep fighting for America’s kids! They are our future!

Part 1: “Israel: America’s model for reducing violent crime”
Part 2: “Do gun bans actually curb violent crime?”
Part 3: “Reducing violent crime in the U.S. from the inside out”
Part 4: “Reducing violent crime in the U.S. from the inside out”
