The Backstory – Armed School Staff
Clarksville High School came to see the obvious: Arming staff with side arms is by far less costly than hiring armed guards. This common sense tactic positions well-trained armed defense everywhere the students are.
CHS previously had a plan in place to deal with mass murderers. “The plan we’ve been given in the past is, ‘Well, lock your doors, turn off your lights and hope for the best,’” Superintendent David Hopkins said to The Associated Press. After Sandy Hook he says they decided, “That’s not a plan.”
The Washington Times: Arkansas teachers to carry 9 mm guns on campus come fall
Gun violence in public schools and universities is a two-dimensional story.
In the first dimension, kill-crazed bullies will readily attack schools, due to the fact that a mass shooting will create sensational news, thereby satisfying the bullies. School administrators are coming to recognize a strategy of “lock your doors, turn off your lights and hope for the best’ fails on several levels. Such a strategy leaves students vulnerable to being killed like shooting ducks in a barrel, while it prevents them from escaping with their lives.
In the second dimension is the truth: gun violence is actually half what it has been in the past.
Rockwall Conservative: Alarmed at Rising Gun Violence? – Don’t Be
Coincidental? I think not. Gun violence across the country declined with the advent of Concealed Handgun Licenses (CHL).
What about safety? What if a teacher goes nuts and starts shooting? The probability of that happening is somewhere on a par with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee finding that U.S. flag on Mars.
CHL holders are carefully screened and they must pass a handgun proficiency test – not all applicants do. They also learn the law.
According to Texas State Senator Bob Deuell, a practicing physician, the arrest rate for CHL holders is actually less than the arrest rate for uniformed police officers.
CARGO Rockwall Gun Club serves to provide up to date information, training on matters of safe handling and ownership of firearms, and we impart knowledge of pertinent law.
Join us every SECOND THURSDAY in the private meeting room of Soulman’s Bar-B-Que in Rockwall, Texas. Meetings start promptly at 6 PM and end promptly at 7 PM. After the meeting, stick around to visit with our certified CHL instructors, law enforcement officers and other professionals.
