Once again I am pleased to be in the house district represented by Delegate Bob Marshall. According to NBC4, Marshall has submitted a bill to have Virginia schools designate staff members who would carry concealed firearms on school property, and be in a position to respond to emergencies. While the proposal is certain to draw hysterical outrage from liberals, it’s the only school security proposal out there that isn’t utter nonsense.
We’ve already seen how making schools “gun free zones” has done nothing to improve security, and has arguably made schools more dangerous. ”Gun free” zones of any kind are already the most dangerous places one could possibly be, and the site of nearly every mass casualty tragedy we’ve suffered in the last decade. No quantity of utopian laws to make it more illegal to do something already illegal will possibly dissuade criminals and the insane from harming people, but they sure will prevent law-abiding citizens from reacting to those that might. Instead, these laws designate easy targets. Our children should not be painted with such a bullseye.
Liberals despise, above all else, two things in schools: guns and prayer. Yet when tragedy strikes, they pray that someone with a gun will soon arrive to rescue them. Hopefully soon, conservatives will offer thanksgiving that the good people entrusted to care for their children will have firearms to immediately protect them with if necessary. One of the things they’ll be thankful for will be Bob Marshall.
The left will, without any doubt, loudly howl about this proposal and once again make wild and ridiculous claims about Bob Marshall’s character. They won’t offer any alternatives that have the slightest chance to actually protect children, as none that such an ideology might allow do anything but promise we continue to sacrifice innocents on the altar of political correctness. Instead, we’ll hear name-calling, character attacks, and insults. Marshall’s used to this, though, and as long as the end result improves safety and security for our children, I don’t think he’ll mind all that much.
UPDATE: The Superintendent of one school district feels a similar policy has been very successful.
