If it were not for bizarre screwed-up logic there would be no such thing as
Democrats and Liberals.
Something in the range of ~120-million firearm owners in the USA yet every
time some nutcase goes beserk, Libtards want to legislate away the Second
Amendment - or more severely regulate it.
CHICAGO is case in point for this type of reasoning.
They have some of the strictest firearms laws in the USA and yet more
people are killed there every day than in Uvalde on Tuesday, May 24th.
The only thing "guns laws" ever do is make it more difficult and expensive
for law abiding citizens to obtain and maintain firearms - BECAUSE
CRIMINALS WILL *ALWAYS* FIND LETHAL INSTRUMENTALITIES TO ACT OUT THEIR
In this case [Uvalde, TX; Robb Elementary School], as is in the case of
EVERY previous mass-shooting in schools since Columbine, *IF* the school
had been secured properly, this event could have *NEVER* happened as it
The protocol is simple: At the start of the school day, have teachers,
trained staff, or guards stand-by a limited number of entrances until the
first bell rings.
They have radios/panic-buttons/firearms - whatever is appropriate - and
they stop, challenge, and check any anomoly.
After the bells rings, ALL BUT THE MAIN ENTRANCE ARE LOCKED AND SECURED
until the end of the school day.
During the school day, to ingress or egress the school grounds/building,
people must navigate a single, main, doorway - preferably with surveilance
cameras - to a SECURED desk/counter where a secretary/clerk identifies the
person and obtains the legitimatacy of their being there. Just like the
bank, doctor's office, or police station. Initial ingress is limited to
the secured reception area.
THEN AND ONLY THEN, after properly being identified, is that person buzzed
through; or, whomever they wish to speak with is buzzed out into the entry
Relatively inexpensive and just that simple. That would have prevented
nearly every mass shooting in US schools - at least since Sandy Hill.
Then you've got the otherwise "legitimate" student who sneaks a small
firearm into the campus...
EVERY TIME that is a deeply disturbed individual who should have been
tagged, indentified, and contained somehow by school officials, mental
health officials, and/or law enforcement! What we get are apoligist
lamentations "We couldn't legally do anything" or "The officers had to hang
out and wait for backup" or some lame excuse for being incompetent. In two
of the more prominent cases A PARENT provided the disturbed individual with
the lethal firearms!
This is NOT about 'GUN LAWS'... This is about 'MENTALLY DISTURBED PEOPLE
Too much political complacency contributed to this tragedy. Too much
political sophistry is bound to further exacerbate and obfuscate the
problem... Where were the School Resource Officers? Where were the trained
and armed teachers and/or staff? Why were the entry points open and
unguarded? Why weren't there metal detectors?
This was an 18-year old who didn't graduate from high school, who didn't
have a job, who lived with his grandmother because "he couldn't get along
with his mother"... And someone is going to say this kid didn't have an
extensive past pattern of abnormal behavior? Now, EVERYONE has to endure
more laws, regulations, expenses to exercise our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS???
Think about it: Something in the neighborhood of 120-million LEGAL firearm
owners in the USA and EVERY TIME there's a mass shooting, it's a mentally
disturbed person who slipped through the legal cracks... EVERY TIME!
Also, IF that kid could not have accessed a firearm, he had a vehicle, a
large black pickup truck, and it's only a step away (in mentally disturbed
people's heads) to lurk around congested public places, pick his moment,
and drive that vehicle into a defenseless crowd... Which has been done
several times in recent history. The shooter could have just as easily
driven his truck through a playground fence to act out his mentally
deranged thought processes.
But you don't see and hear Democrats along with media and Hollywood
Liberals crying "WE NEED MORE AUTOMOBILE OWNERSHIP LAWS!" Do you?
You don't see Liberals and Democrats squawking for MORE MANDATORY MENTAL
HEALTH EVALUATIONS and APPROPRIATE LAW ENFORCEMENT/JUDICIAL SUPERVISION, do
You want to know WHY? Simple: We've all seen the recent activity involving
gangs of thugs - with and without firearms - identifying themselves as
'Black Lives Matter (BLM)' or 'Antifa'... Mostly using clubs, bats, pipes,
bicycle locks, fire bombs, bricks, frozen water bottles, etc. as weapons.
They certainly don't want legally armed citizens standing in their way to
absolute power and control.
What we need is MORE LAWS AUTHORIZING LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE JUDICIARY TO
COMMIT, TREAT, AND CONTROL PEOPLE WITH MENTAL PROBLEMS! These things DO
NOT "suddenly" happen or commence from a vacuum. This was the culmination
of a pattern of behavior which should have been identified, isolated, and
contained - likely many years ago.
What we ALL need is more common sense and way less hysterical sophistry
that has the ultimate objective of disarming the people so an oppressive
central government can reign supreme.

And *NO*, that is *NOT* a Jedi Light Saber I have in my pocket!
But that doesn't necessarily mean I'm happy to see you either.
