The real reason the Left doesn’t want armed guards in schools

The real reason the Left doesn’t want armed guards in schools

While Democrats continue to call for repeal of the Second Amendment, new restrictive gun control laws, and an outright confiscation of your firearms, Republicans offer common-sense solutions to school shootings.

First and foremost among those solutions is eliminating gun-free zones, simultaneously arming qualified teachers, resource officers, retired veterans, or other individuals to help protect our children.

We need to “look at the possibility of giving concealed guns to gun-adept teachers with military or special training experience – only the best,” President Trump has said.

“A ‘gun free’ school is a magnet for bad people,” he added. “Attacks would end!”

Who could possibly be opposed to that? Liberals of course – because to them, guns are not weapons of self-defense. Instead, they big, bad, scary inanimate objects that fire of their own accord.

But there’s another, far more insidious reason why Democrats don’t want armed guards in schools. Because school shootings allow them to push their agenda.

Don’t think the Left wants to ban armed guards? Democrats in New York actually introduced legislation to do so.

“More guns in school are not the answer,” Long Island state Senator Todd Kaminsky said. “It’s a dangerous idea.”

In their minds, assuring that the only armed individual in a school is the shooter is the way to go. They’re openly leading more students to their demise by making them sitting ducks.

Even their friends in the liberal media like to see school shootings, using them to promote their anti-gun agenda.

“Many in legacy media love mass shootings,” NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch said to a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “You guys love it.”

There isn’t a crisis the Democratic party isn’t willing to exploit by using as an emotional tool to promote its agenda. They’ve proven it time and again. That’s why they don’t want to see armed guards in schools — because it will work to help stop school shootings.

And if school shootings drop, they have nobody to exploit.
