The left-wing agenda is about making this country weak so that it can be more easily controlled by those who crave power. You can see it in everything they do from pushing the nanny state, to hiking taxes through the roof, to opening our borders, and taking away the freedom of law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their homes with the technology necessary to do so.
This is why there has been so much push back against the idea of making schools hard targets by posting police officers trained in close quarters combat on campuses to respond to mass shooters. Placing armed guards in schools would defeat the entire gun control agenda, as it is based solely on the idea that guns are killing children in school. Unfortunately, it appears that there is too much resistance to the idea.
It’s odd how the one thing that could actually solve a problem is always vociferously opposed by the left. They hate solutions because solutions remove fear, restore freedom, and empower communities. People who are unafraid, free, and powerful do not need Democrats pandering to their feelings and offering handouts.
Fortunately, people who walk the hallways in our schools every day realize the solution may be in their hands. Teachers are beginning to arm themselves.
In Butler County Ohio, Sheriff Richard K. Jones sent out an open invitation to teachers to take a free concealed firearms carry class. The sheriff only had room for fifty, but within 24 hours, 250 teachers responded.
Sheriff Jones sent out a tweet saying that more than 50 people responded by email within the first hour. He enthusiastically announced that he would find a way to accommodate them.
“We have 250 and growing fast,” Jones told Fox news. “We will start training fast, next week.”
It will still be up to the school board to decide whether they will allow armed teachers, who are trained and qualified to carry weapons, to do so on school grounds. In the meantime, he will be working diligently to train get as many teachers as he can.
“If the school boards want to give the authority to teachers to be armed… [they] can do that, they have the authority to do it,” Sheriff Jones said. “But I’m going to do my part, and I assume I’m probably the only one in the state of Ohio that’s doing that – but something has to happen.”
This is a good start. If Butler County is able to do this without incident, it will be an example to the rest of the country. We will be one step closer to remembering the lessons our forefathers tried to impart to us. Lessons like the importance of communities to care for and protect themselves and not rely on top-heavy governments to dictate and control the local decisions are key components of American freedom.
We may be reminded of a time, not 70 years ago when our schools were full of students legally carrying rifles- and no one committed mass murder.
