Have charges been filed against anyone in the school
district? If not, why not? They knew this kid. He'd gone
through their public middle school in Newtown. He was
described by classmates at Newtown High as an "odd
figure" who always "carried a brief case" and hung out
with "computer nerds" and "brainiacs". He was from a
wealthy family; the son of a "pillar of the community".
Whose responsibility was he? The NRA's?
Why is it that every time
one of these ghastly school shootings takes place, the ordinary law-abiding citizen finds
himself, back against the wall, defending the Second
Amendment as if he were somehow the culprit?
It’s as if the media intentionally
stir up these simmering pots over more guns, less guns,
arming everyone, disarming everyone to somehow preempt
any meaningful debate on the real issue at hand: The
colossal failure of our national public schools system,
whose extremist policies are demonstrably more to blame
for all of this than anything Smith & Wesson did or ever
While we go on and on in these media-directed
sidetracks, the folks who actually get paid to see to
the education and personal safety of our nation’s students seem to
get off scott-free. Some Americans would like to know
Sure, accidents happen. Tragedies happen, too, and
nobody likes the blame game. But if the plan on
the Left is to simply pass the buck, blame the Second
Amendment and the NRA for this one, and lobby the
government to strip law-abiding citizens of even more
civil liberties, while absolving themselves of any wrong
doing whatsoever, then by all means let's let the games
how exactly does a 20-year-old get on a grade-school
campus with a bag full of guns? What, nobody noticed
this oddball? Can pedophiles stroll onto school property
just as easily? Kidnappers? Drug dealers? Pimps?
just what’s the point of a “gun-free zone”
if no one intends to enforce it? Is it just
another feel-good policy to require signs posted at the
entrances to all of our schools? Were there any
security measures in place, or was the plan to simply
hang up silly signs and then
blame the National Rifle Association (NRA) if anything
what was Plan B? Blame the parents? But students spend
many more waking hours in school than with their
parents. And, besides, parents enjoy
extremely limited input on public school policy these
an example of how it works.) These are the same public school
bureaucrats who deny parental rights and usurp parental
authority whenever and wherever they feel like it, even
to the extent of lobbying against parental notification
before abortions can be offered to minors.
condoms in the nurse’s office, even against the express
wishes of parents? Absolutely! Parents have no rights
to influence campus policy.
Mandatory compliance with socialist indoctrination of
students that flies directly in the face of the
religious beliefs of their parents? You bet! And if you
object, you might just end up in jail.
what about these shootings? Under whose watch do they
occur? The parents? In whose buildings do they
occur? The NRA’s? Why isn't Anderson Cooper
discussing any of this?
Leaving aside the social and moral free-for-all which
public schools have become infamous for promoting—and
which has led to widespread loss of respect for life,
authority, and morality among whole generations of young
Americans—where were the metal detectors? Where were the
competent and adequately armed security officers? This latest shooter was reportedly
caught trying to break into the school just two days
earlier? What, that didn’t send up any red flags?
Who’s in charge of our kids’ safety, and why do school
administrators keep leaving the heroic defense of kids
under fire in gymnasiums to underpaid teachers whose job
description certainly does not include fending off armed
assailants in the hallways?
Again, who’s responsible for this? Have charges been
filed against anyone in the school district? If not,
why not? They knew this kid. He'd gone through the
public middle school in Newtown. He was described by
classmates at Newtown High as an "odd figure" who always
"carried a brief case" and hung out with "computer
nerds" and "brainiacs". He was from a wealthy
family; the son of a "pillar of the community". Whose
responsibility was he? The NRA's?
Next thing anyone knew he was shooting up
kindergartners. How? People don’t get away with bringing guns into
airports anymore, for example; so why is it so easy to
tote them into schools? How many kids have to die at the
hands of the next Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold or some
other disturbed product of our vaunted public schools
before the superintendents in charge stop blaming
law-abiding gun owners and the NRA for their own criminal negligence.
And let’s not have any talk about God or morality
or truth or consequences—not in our enlightened public
schools! The geniuses who banned God from the
classroom years ago have since decided that kids don’t need morality reinforced in school,
either. Give them the condoms! Encourage the risky
behavior! Invite them to indulge every desire.
After all, moral restrictions and prohibitions might bruise self-esteem,
self-worth, and self-discovery! And self-destruction?
Nobody talks about that until after there are dead kids
lying all over the place.
can’t these people be held responsible, not only for
failing to protect our kids from pimply-faced punks
strolling around campus with gun barrels sticking out
from beneath their jackets, but also for their own
failed social and academic policies where, say, for
example, plummeting test scores are concerned, and national averages
now embarrass our
country in the eyes of the whole world? Or how
about those skyrocketing teen
pregnancy rates—the obvious byproduct of over-the-top
sex indoctrination in public schools? Any checks
and balances on any of these obviously failed policies?
Or does the public school monopoly get to just soldier
These people are no longer educators! They are
agenda-driven social engineers who are running
experiments on our kids. They don’t believe in objective
truth, they don’t teach consequences, they don’t even
acknowledge good and evil, right and wrong, but rather
stress only what is inappropriate and appropriate
behavior; they undermine parental
authority at every opportunity, and, obviously, they
have no idea how to protect the kids in their charge
from physical harm and even death.
whose fault is all this? Gun manufactures’? The NRA’s?
Really? Even though it’s become common knowledge that the
few good teachers still risking life and limb in public
schools are forbidden to discipline wayward students,
lest self-esteem be damaged? And how’s that working
out so far? Ask the folks in Columbine, Conyers and now
And, yet, all we hear about
are guns and the occasional reference to mental
illness—as if folks suffering a mental disability don’t
have enough to worry about already without media and
public school officials insinuating that everyone on
Zoloft is a mass murder waiting to happen. There are
millions of people who suffer psychological
disabilities, and they’re not running around shooting up
schools. Public school kids, on the other hand, are! So
let’s not use mental illness to cover up the criminal
public school administrators. In the latest
instance, it's not even certain that the shooter had
diagnosed mental problems. And yet the media were
pushing that possibility right from the get-go.
Why? Because then it's so much easier for the social
engineers to stand on their soapbox and rail against
On every level that matters, the public school system is
getting an ‘F’! So why do they keep getting a pass from
the mainstream media? Why is our national conversation
all about guns when it should be all about demanding a
total overhaul of public education?
More anti-gun laws are not going to fix
the systemic problem. Consider this: Despite extremely tough anti-gun laws, a
maniac staged the deadliest attack in Norway since WWII
just last year, claiming 77 lives. He used a car bomb made of fertilizer
and fuel oil that killed eight people in Oslo and
injured 209 more. Two hours later he used guns at a
summer camp, killing 69 and injuring 110.
On August 13, 2012 Norway's prime
minister received the Gjorv Report which concluded that
Norway's police could have prevented the bombing of
central Oslo, caught mass killer Anders Behring Breivik
faster and that more security and emergency measures to
prevent further attacks and "mitigate adverse effects"
should have been implemented.
In other words, they didn’t blame guns,
fertilizer, the NRA or Santa Claus. They blamed the
people in charge of security.
So instead of taking the bait and talking about guns in
America ad nauseam, why aren’t we talking about class
action lawsuits against the local, state and federal
school boards where these shootings are becoming all too
frequent and where the shooter is most often another
damaged product of the public schools that somehow got
over the wall?
Education in America is compulsory. Parents are
obliged by law to put their kids in school, and most use
the public schools which their taxes subsidize. But
what do they get in return? Harassment and threats from
administrators, anti-Christian prejudice from teachers,
and semi-literate, bullied, and even
played, public schools! Yes, by all means, blame
the NRA. That’ll do the trick.
