School security not priority in US, Absence of guns not guns problem in Florida Sandy Hook etc., Gun free zones are irresponsible: don’t stop criminals & crazies, Prefer they use explosives?
“Weaker people, whether at school, at home or elsewhere are best protected from stronger people, with ill intent, by guns and proper security measures.”…Citizen Wells
“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”…Heinrich Himmler
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”…George Washington
Don’t get sucked into the debate about guns and gun control.
That has nothing to do with the school tragedies. It has all to do with the Democrat Party far left agenda.
It not only has gotten us nowhere with securing our schools, it has made the situation far worse with gun free zones and the illusion that the absence of guns in an area makes it safer.
The problem in Florida, Sandy Hook and other school shootings was not guns, but the absence of guns in responsible hands.
The biggest problem is not making school security a top priority and following through with it.
One of my classic replies to anti gun fanatics, those wanting gun free zones is:
“Would you rather the crazies use explosives?”
The worst school disaster happened in Bath Township, Michigan May 18, 1927. 38 elementary school children and 6 adults were killed and at least 58 others injured. Dynamite was used.
And just yesterday….

That was pure luck!
Guns protect good people and weaker forces from superior forces of evil and crazy people, regardless of the weaponry.
There are many steps that can be taken to secure schools and other areas. Here are some.
From Citizen Wells January 16, 2013.
1. Monitor the areas outside the buildings. This would include monitored security cameras and some combination of walk arounds by staff and or security personnel.
2. Security alarms for illegal entry.
3. Buffered entry ways. i.e. double entry ways. The first door should set off the alarm and the second would slow down intrusion.
4. Stronger doorways.
5. Regular drills for emergency preparedness. We had those when I was in grade school.
6. As many armed school personnel as possible. “Good guys with guns to stop the bad guys with guns.” Each armed person should be psychologically evaluated.
