Can you guess how many North American school children have died from school fires in the last 50 years? If you guessed a number other than zero, you’d be wrong according to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman.
Yesterday we had our last fire drill of the year -in the rain. In my school, every exterior door has a red, battery-backed, fail-safe emergency exit sign pointing the way to safely. We have state mandated fire drills scheduled to interrupting classroom time. Fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, red curbs, and unannounced fire marshal inspections are standard operating procedure. Fire safety is taught to children from kindergarten until they graduate – if they make it through the grueling 12+ year process of being schooled. Stop, drop, and roll if your pants are on fire. Mandatory laminated signs are in all classrooms mapping our escape route in case of fire. Firewalls and fire retardant building material add to the layers of redundancy. We’ve achieve a high level of safety where fire is concerned. The threat of fire has been reduced by employing a logical action plan that practiced. When the distinctive alarm blares over the school intercom system, everyone knows what to do, where to go, and how to get to safety. It’s automatic. No panic involved.
Just as Grossman described, our school is prepared for fire. How about an active shooter? Hopefully, we’ll never find out. He rightly points out that redundant fire prevention techniques have made our schools safe. Why have we not adopted the same approach to limit, or even stop all school mass murders?
The government schooling complex states that the safety of it’s students is a high priority. Our school has recently beefed up security by adding an additional armed resource officer in the building. The parents, teachers, and students ‘feel’ safe with more police state antics. Dependency on the State is the goal. The police state web grows more sticky by the day – or mass shooting event – or terrorist attack – or new strain of flu.
“For the children”, a hollow phrase uttered by statist politicians and media types. It’s dangerous to liberty. The dark evil visited upon the victims and families of American school children causes cognitive dissonance. Our human mind won’t allow us to connect the dots. What kind of monster kills innocent 6 year old children? Our moral and righteous minds grasps for answers and demands action. Whatever it takes to stop future blood from running in the halls. Looking for a target, collectivists aim at evil black guns. We have to give up our natural right of self-defense since the official story is that a “lone gunman” killed all those children and teachers. The approved media story is sinking from all the holes. They can’t seem to get the facts straight.
Elected officials and do-gooders scurry into action – naïvely pruning leaves and not striking the root. Make no mistake. The government knows exactly what its doing. Tyrants around the world depend on docile, conforming subjects willing to be ruled. Busy-body congress critters from both sides of the isle are anxious to treat another symptom to advance tyranny. Keep in mind that these same “VIPs” championing our next ban on guns are surrounded by armed body guards. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. If it’s good for them, it can’t be good for mere mortals like us. Our lives, and those poor victims in Newtown, are not as important as theirs.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
– C.S. Lewis
The three ring circus unfolding in the wake of the Newtown massacre paints self-reliant individuals who arm themselves as cold, dark, mentally ill, and sinister. The collective hasn’t wasted their opportunity to demonize guns. The politically-correct monkeys dance and scream for us to join the collective and conform. Be especially aware of the religious collective calling to disarm liberty minded folk. They’re sleeping with the tyrant. Their tax-exempt status must be protected.
Brace for the boot of tyranny. This time it won’t approach with cat paws. The 2nd Amendment ain’t about hunting. Prepare accordingly.
