We Are The Answer

Sunday, December 23, 2012

The question of the week so far - should every school have a resource officer? Just what is a resource officer? It, of course, is a peace officer who has been schooled/trained in the proper use of a firearm.

Next question. How does a person get a license to carry a concealed firearm? They are trained by a state-qualified instructor on the laws and safety issues in re to carrying a gun. They produce valid IDs and get fingerprinted and have a criminal background check on them.

A citizen has the same rights to use deadly force as a peace officer - for fear of their life or the life of another.

Horrifying isn't it? But the liberals keep pining, "What can we do?"

My suggestion? Let every God-fearing, law-abiding American that qualifies to obtain a gun permit ( yes teachers ) carry them anywhere they please, especially the "gun free zone" such as schools and places of business. Gun free zones are a human turkey shoot for the wackos. A nut can have his assault rifle and a belt of clips, but he will never get to use them when he's surrounded by citizens willing and able to put him down after the first shot has been fired.

We have to stop giving the nuts gun free zones to carry out their destruction. They are cowards. Let it be known to the nuts that wherever they go to do the devils work, Americans are armed and are fed up and willing to put them out of their misery, without a co-pay I might add.

I work at a gun free zone and it's a scary thing to imagine the carnage that one disgruntled employee, husband, boyfriend will cause as we all huddle under desks waiting for the peace officers.

An armed nut makes his way into a police station, how long do you think it'll be before he gets put down? Why should we be any different? Why wait for the police and allow people to die when we can defend ourselves?

As for the criminals illegally carrying, nail their hides to the wall.
