Makes no Sense to Me!
« on: February 22, 2018, 02:28:56 PM »
I recently saw a sign in an article that stated; "Staff is armed and trained any intent to harm children will be met with deadly force."

Now, if I were a bad person who would I take out first?

Why not just say; "Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force." Keep the "who" is going to administer that deadly force as a question in the bad person's mind.

Just a thought.
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

...And I bet you saw that sign in a gun-free zone.

Along with shooting technique and the relevant laws, tactics should also be taught.

I find the sign ironic. According to reports, the resource officer (who has resigned) at the Florida school, who was armed, hid from the shooter. Video shows him hiding behind a pillar of sorts. I guess that his retirement, after 30 years of service as a LEO was more important than the lives of those he was supposed to protect.

I read this morning that there were six police officers standing guard outside the "retired" resource officers home. It's too bad they couldn't have had this kind of effort at the school!

He has now the status of the rich - paid for armed security. He no longer needs a firearm, right?

Do we need to wager that some, if not all, of those officers are carrying ARs"
