Every time we hear of another school killing acted out with a gun, we are trained by the media to believe the problem is guns. Main-Stream and Left-Wing want you to believe that with more gun restrictions these things wouldn’t happen. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Quite the contrary; it’s because of gun restrictions these things occur.
The latest school killing occurred at Oxford High School in Oakland County Michigan. The deadly rampage was acted out by a 15-year-old named Ethan Crumbley. Crumbley killed four students and injured seven others when he opened fire at the School, just north of Detroit on Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
In the time it took for police to arrive on the scene, no one in this gun-free zone was able to stop him. 911 dispatchers received over 100 calls in the five minutes it took police to arrive on the scene. Credit to the police for the quick response, but unfortunately they were unable to stop Crumbley as quickly as an armed teacher or school staff member may have been able to do.
Some reports say that Ethan talked about killing students the night before in a video and even wrote about it in his journal. Some classmates say Ethan was bullied, indicating a possible motive.
The anti-gun crowd and left-wing media jumped on this story as a way of encouraging legislators to create even more gun control laws, but it’s important that we first look at situations like this with logic and try to understand the actual causes of this type of violence may be. It’s also important to look at what legislation has been put in place to enable this type of deadly violence. Amidst the cries for more gun-control laws from the fearful anti-gun left, there were a couple of voices of reason. One of them was Rep. Steve Carra, R- Three Rivers, who said on Wednesday that he was working on legislation that would allow schools to provide lockboxes for teachers and staff to store personal guns at educational institutions. He argued the policy could provide teachers a method of defense and could act as a deterrent.
“If you have multiple teachers who are ready to respond quickly, I think that helps to prevent the issue from being worse than it is,” Carra said.
In 1990 Joe Biden sponsored the Crime Control Act. In it, was the deadly Gun-Free School Zones Act. As a result of Joe Biden’s irresponsible legislation, school killings have nearly doubled since the time this bill was signed into law. This is due to the fact that law-abiding citizens, teachers, school personnel, and other staff are no longer able to defend themselves and their students on school property. Gun-free zones attract killers and legislators implement these policies knowing very well that they may result in unnecessary death. You would think that if they really wanted to save lives they would roll back these deadly policies, but they don’t. The truth is, the higher the gun-related deaths numbers, the more fuel they have to push for gun restrictions. How do we know this? For more than 30 years, they have seen the results and haven’t uttered a peep about changing this horrible law. Logical thinking people however have been speaking out for decades.
“Preventing any adult at a school from having access to a firearm eliminates any chance the killer can be stopped in time to prevent a rampage,” Jim Kouri, Public-Information Officer of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.
In response to the tragedy, Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said, “I think it’s every parents’ worse nightmare.”
Whitmer also continues to push the false narrative that guns are a public health crisis for political purposes. Will she actually do anything to address the real causes of human violence in her State? Will she look at the deadly gun-free school policies she and her colleagues support? Will she consider allowing school personnel the tools to protect students? Probably not. Instead, our elected employees perpetuate the problem with politically driven legislation, and use the tragedies to push for more gun laws that restrict law-abiding citizens and encourage violence.
The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege.
