Observe how rapidly, in the aftermath of virtually any school massacre, the woke faction begins discussing the need to trample the Second Amendment.
In all candor, sometimes it takes a bit longer, especially if there is any kind of bigotry-related angle that can be pressed first. However, if this is not the case — especially if it does not work in the leftists’ favor, such as when the suspected school shooter was a woman who identified as a man and the target was a Christian school — the conversation rapidly shifts to how firearms can be taken away.
The issue, according to former President Donald Trump, is how rapidly we can get guns into schools and into the hands of trained instructors.
In an interview with Breitbart following his April 14 address to the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis, Trump stated that if he is elected, his plan to stop school shootings would include allowing “teachers that are very good with firearms” to carry on campus, and that it wouldn’t take many of them to end mass shootings in schools.
During his address, Trump referred to school shootings as “a spiritual problem.”
“It’s a scandal and a tragedy that year after year Democrats in Washington continue to hold common sense school safety measures hostage to their radical gun control agenda, which in virtually all cases would do nothing to prevent attacks by demented and disturbed individuals,” he said.
“Our country has been chock-full of guns for centuries and there was no talk of massacres of school children until around the year 2000. That’s when it really started. They started talking about it,” Trump said.
“This is not a gun problem. This is a mental health problem. This is a social problem. This is a cultural problem. This is a spiritual problem.”
In an interview with Breitbart conducted immediately after his speech but only published on Sunday, Trump suggested arming only 5 percent of teachers as a solution.
“More than anything else, it’s mental health and a lot of it is caused by drugs — the drugs are flowing in” through illegal immigration and an open southern border, Trump said.
“We had it down to about a 32-year-low at the border. I heard today they’re 10 times higher than just three years ago. Can you imagine that? But I think more than anything else it’s mental health, by far. And a lot of that mental health is caused by drugs.” CONTINUE READING…
