How Israel Protects its Schools from Gun Wielding Crazies

The proponents of gun control have been bullying us and guilting us with idiotic arguments like, ‘if you don’t support stricter gun control laws, you hate the children,’ for years. For one thing, they don’t understand simple gun statistics.

For example, they don’t understand that nearly all mass shootings happen in gun free zones. It stands to reason. Mass shooters may be deranged, but they don’t want to go to the target location and be shot dead the moment they pull out their weapons.

As another example, pro-gun control advocates look at facts like, increases in concealed carry permits raising the numbers of occasions when people successfully defend themselves. When something like this happens, they see the number of shootings go up, but because the news outlets they trust don’t report the news fully, they can’t understand what they’re hearing.

They see more shootings. They don’t see robberies, murders, and rapes prevented. They just see shootings.

The point is, when it comes to enacting sensible ways to protect children in schools from mass shooters, why should we be held back by people who refuse to look at the facts realistically?
