Do Something

How many more shootings before we do something?

That is, how many more good guys with guns have to stop bad guys with guns before we stop stigmatizing inanimate objects?

The high school resource officer in Dixon, Illinois, and the Good Samaritan outside the restaurant in Oklahoma City aren’t inanimate objects or a three-letter acronym so they are of minor, passing interest to the DC press corps.

While well-intentioned Americans want to hear ideas about improving public safety, champagne socialists are interested only in using people’s fears against them to leverage more power over them.

This fact was laid bare in a recently released email exchange between Obama consiglieres Rahm Emanuel and Arnie Duncan two days after the Sandy Hook massacre.

In the exchange, Rahm tells Duncan, “Go for a vote this week asap before it fades. Tap peoples [sic] emotion. Make it simple assault weapons."

The dizzying intellect that is Arne Duncan replied, “Yup-thanks.”

Do you understand now?

Do you understand how little the Political Royals think of you and that they care for you even less than that?

They are as cavalier with your life as they are craven in using the lives of 20 dead children to manipulate you.

You might consider this when you’re deciding how much of your life to turn over to them.

What We Learned From The Walkouts

The main thing we learned from the 3,000+ school walkouts that occurred and those already being planned for April 20 is who is in charge of K-12 education in America.

And that should frighten you more than your average 18-year-old with a rifle or a violent video game.

Those pillaging America’s schools like Malcolm McDowell and his droogs in “A Clockwork Orange” are in charge of our schools not attending them.

It’s zero tolerance on the one hand and tolerance of everything including thuggery on the other.

If you’re a white kid who scrawls the square root sign evoking a gun on a math assignment, they bring in Jack Bauer and put him on the clock.

If you’re a minority kid, say in Parkland, Florida, you can threaten to shoot up your school and no one will say anything. Under the guise of racial equity, schools are moving to remove disciplinary consequences for certain students and take discretion away from law enforcement in the process.

Neither are teachers immune from the imposition of Leftist orthodoxy. Just ask the California teacher put on administrative leave for hazarding a thoughtful discussion with her class about the politics of protests ahead of the walkout.

With the politics being pushed on their kids, now is a good time for more parents to wake up and walk into their kids’ schools for a healthy stop, look and listen.
