Reason versus delusion: Why we need armed defenders in schools to protect the lives of our children

(NaturalNews) I'm not a member of the NRA, but when an organization states such a powerful, obvious truth that can help save lives, I am obliged to recognize the wisdom of it even if I'm not personally a member of that group. Yesterday, the NRA called for defending our nation's schoolchildren with armed adults in the schools.

The NRA's reasoning is solid. As NRA president Wayne LaPierre explained:

How have our nation's priorities gotten so far out of order? Think about it. We care about our money, so we protect our banks with armed guards. American airports, office buildings, power plants, courthouses -- even sports stadiums -- are all protected by armed security.

We care about the President, so we protect him with armed Secret Service agents. Members of Congress work in offices surrounded by armed Capitol Police officers.

Yet when it comes to the most beloved, innocent and vulnerable members of the American family -- our children -- we as a society leave them utterly defenseless, and the monsters and predators of this world know it and exploit it. That must change now!

Schools are advertised as defenseless killing zones

The NRA also points out another crucial truth we've all been trying to explain recently: By declaring schools to be "gun free zones," our federal government has advertised to all psychopaths, killers and mass murderers that schools are the safest "target" of choice, where they can succeed in carrying out the most carnage with the least personal risk.

This policy is delusional... it is insane. And it is the product of delusional thinking which abandons all logic and somehow believes that signs are magical devices. But they are not. Signs do not prevent psychopaths with guns from walking into schools and opening fire. If anything, signs actually worsen the risk to our children because they assure psychopathic killers that no one will shoot back.

As the NRA stated yesterday:

Now, we must speak ... for the safety of our nation's children. Because for all the noise and anger directed at us over the past week, no one -- nobody -- has addressed the most important, pressing and immediate question we face: How do we protect our children right now, starting today, in a way that we know works?

The only way to answer that question is to face up to the truth. Politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them.

And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk.

How many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame -- from a national media machine that rewards them with the wall-to-wall attention and sense of identity that they crave -- while provoking others to try to make their mark?

A dozen more killers? A hundred? More? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?


The White House and mainstream media have created a massive fear mongering hoax

In truth, the White House and media have created a grand fear mongering hoax, scaring half the country into thinking mad shooters are hiding behind every corner, ready to kill their children. But the actual risk of being killed in a mass shooting in America is virtually zero. Each year, over 32,000 Americans are killed in automobile accidents, meaning that 1,160 times the number of people killed at Sandy Hook.

In America today, you are more likely to be killed by a deer in the road than in a mass shooting. You're more like to die from lightning or a swimming pool accident. Yet the media has whipped up a frothing fear among the American people, practically terrorizing American moms and dads in its obscene effort to push its own selfish political agenda of disarming the American people.

During all this, the media is ignoring all the other relevant factors that promote mass violence:

• Violent movies and video games, including one game called "Kindergarten Shooter"

• Psychiatric drugs, which are almost always linked to mass shootings

• Lack of real mental health care based on nutrition, not dangerous chemicals

• Lack of any armed defense of our children

As the NRA explains:

Here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.

Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse. And here's one: it's called Kindergarten Killers. It's been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldn't or didn't want anyone to know you had found it?

Then there's the blood-soaked slasher films like "American Psycho" and "Natural Born Killers" that are aired like propaganda loops on "Splatterdays" and every day, and a thousand music videos that portray life as a joke and murder as a way of life. And then they have the nerve to call it "entertainment."

But is that what it really is? Isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?

In a race to the bottom, media conglomerates compete with one another to shock, violate and offend every standard of civilized society by bringing an ever-more-toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty into our homes -- every minute of every day of every month of every year.

A child growing up in America witnesses 16,000 murders and 200,000 acts of violence by the time he or she reaches the ripe old age of 18.

And throughout it all, too many in our national media ... their corporate owners ... and their stockholders ... act as silent enablers, if not complicit co-conspirators. Rather than face their own moral failings, the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more laws and fill the national debate with misinformation and dishonest thinking that only delay meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away.


The only thing that can stop a bad person with a gun is a GOOD person with a gun

People who claim to be opposed to guns aren't actually opposed to guns. They still think the President should be guarded by men with guns; that airports should be guarded by men with guns; and that men with guns should come rushing to your home if you call 911 to report a strange person lurking outside your bedroom window.

The point is that it's the nature of the person carrying the gun that matters, not the tool itself.

As the NRA's LaPierre explains:

A gun in the hands of a Secret Service agent protecting the President isn't a bad word. A gun in the hands of a soldier protecting the United States isn't a bad word. And when you hear the glass breaking in your living room at 3 a.m. and call 911, you won't be able to pray hard enough for a gun in the hands of a good guy to get there fast enough to protect you.

Now, the National Rifle Association knows that there are millions of qualified active and retired police; active, reserve and retired military; security professionals; certified firefighters and rescue personnel; and an extraordinary corps of patriotic, trained qualified citizens to join with local school officials and police in devising a protection plan for every school. We can deploy them to protect our kids now. We can immediately make America's schools safer -- relying on the brave men and women of America's police force.


Only in an insanely stupid society would people put their children in government buildings, advertise them as completely defenseless, then heavily medicate other children and teens with suicide pills that have been linked to nearly every mass shooting in America.

That's pure insanity. It's time we stopped the insanity and got real about what it takes to stop armed psychopaths from killing our children.
