Criticized For Common Sense

Perennial NRA VP Wayne LaPierre spoke common sense and has been vilified for it by the ignorant people who think the way to self defense is to DISARM themselves and hope the illegally armed criminals will leave them alone, a forlorn hope. In his press conference the other day he said what amounts to one thing: “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to oppose him with a good guy with a gun.” There is NO other way. When such a shooter starts shooting, what do they do? Call for somebody with a gun to oppose him. Unfortunately that doesn’t work, because the nearest good guy with a gun is usually at LEAST ten minutes away while an armed and trained EMPLOYEE of that school or shopping center is RIGHT THERE; a lot closer than the nearest cop. Such shooters can kill a lot of people in the first couple of minutes while the cop drives to the scene. That supposed NRA member who cut up his NRA membership card on television is STUPID. He has no other answer to this problem, but he condemns the answer the NRA gave him out of IGNORANCE.

Nobody else has a viable answer, but THEY criticize LaPierre for providing the ONLY viable answer there is: at least ONE PERSON at every school, unknown to the shooter, with a gun, trained and ready to oppose would-be mass shooters. Such people can’t offer their own solution, and criticize LaPierre’s solution out of IGNORANCE. Yes, a UNIFORMED cop at every school would stand out, and become the FIRST TARGET of a would-be shooter. But a teacher or other staff member people are used to seeing around, but who don’t know are armed, CAN stop a would-be shooter by killing him before he can shoot a lot of people. John Lott, author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” has PROVEN that more guns in the hands of responsible people who are trained in its use, can, and DOES reduce crime, wherever it has been tried. On the other hand, it has been PROVEN beyond doubt that “gun-free zones” are an OPEN INVITATION to people who want to come in and murder masses of people. The only answer our government offers is MORE GUN CONTROL and that doesn’t work. The literal definition of INSANITY is to do the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. That’s all they can offer, yet the world seems to accept it. (The Philly Post)
