Gun Free Schools Are Sitting Targets

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

More laws banning the guns will not work, criminals don't care what the law is. Anybody that thinks we can get rid of the guns so bad people don't have access to them is a fool.

I challenge our local leaders to get armed security in every school so the kids are not sitting ducks against a crazed lunatic killer. And lock the schools up so people can't get into them. School's that look like prisons? Sounds better to me than a bunch of defenseless kids being killed by a lunatic. 

For every person that is appalled at the idea of armed teaches and administrators in our schools I want you to rid your home of all firearms, if you have any, and put a sign out in the front lawn that says "This home is a gun free zone" for all the criminals, robbers, and rapists to see. They already know this about the school your kids are in.
