Today a young man casually walked into the Sandy Hook elementary school in a rural town in Connecticut, right next door to my own rural hometown, and shot and killed 27 people (including himself). Twenty of them were children around the age of 5.
I grew up next to this town. When I was a teenager, my friends and I would go to the church in Newtown and pay a couple bucks to watch old re-run movies while chomping down on the really good, but really cheap popcorn they sold there. Being only 15 minutes away, we would drive there when we were bored just to see the gigantic American flag they have in the roundabout in the center of town. When I am in Connecticut on business heading to my parent’s house, Exit 11 for Newtown on I-84 is the first exit where I feel I am “home again.” One of my first girlfriends was from Newtown. She was the first girl I ever bought jewelry for. Emerald earrings. Indeed, very small ones. I think her mom hated me because I was the first boy to start “coming ’round” the house. A second girl I met in Newtown moved with me to California several months after I first came here. We lived together for about a year before she got too homesick and moved back to Newtown. Newtown is a great place to avoid the cities, to live a quiet and peaceful life surrounded by beautiful countryside. It’s a textbook New England village where everyone knows everyone, all the stores are mom and pop shops and someone getting a flat tire is news. It’s a place you don’t have to lock your doors. It’s a great place to raise children in peace, and safety, and…
The fatigue-wearing madman shooter who ruthlessly gunned down 20 babies in an elementary school in Newtown, CT was the son of a teacher in the school. She was found dead in the shooters home. Presumably after shooting her, he proceeded to the school where she worked and strolled among the classrooms, focusing on two rooms in particular, taking his time since he knew nobody was going to be armed, and like shooting fish in a barrel, he casually plugged a total of 20 children knowing he had all the time in the world to do it.
Without fear of being shot at by an armed teacher, the shooter casually and leisurely strolled inside the building murdering teachers and young boys and girls as he went. He was in no particular rush since the closest guns, the police, were at least 15 to 20 minutes away and he knew that the law protected him from being harmed by guaranteeing that none of his potential targets would be armed and therefore defenseless, ensuring no resistance to his whimsical dreams of infanticide.
The only thing the teachers in Sandy Hook could do was round up kids and huddle them together in different areas of the school waiting until it was either over, or the gunman found them and casually shot each one of them in turn until there was a pile of dead baby bodies. Unfortunately, none of the teachers were armed as my home State is a rabid anti-gun, anti-self protection, pro-crime, Liberal stronghold so all they could do was get all the walking dead together in one room or another and wait for their turn to be slaughtered.
Luckily for the remaining students and teachers, the shooter shot himself. Otherwise, with not much more ammunition, he could have simply continued his stroll into every room in the school and killed dozens more, if not more than a hundred babies…all because Liberals, and Connecticut, refuse to allow people to arm themselves while madmen are free to walk nonchalantly through elementary schools massacring innocent children and adults.
If just one teacher had been armed, much more positive alternative outcomes would have been possible. The armed teacher could have pinned the shooter down, delaying his massacre advancement which would have saved lives and delayed him until the police arrived or the shootout between them was done with a victor, buying valuable time. The armed teacher could have shot him, ending the entire event with many saved lives. If the shooter was pinned, he would have to re-assess his plan as he believed, and rightly so, that nobody was supposed to provide any resistance because Connecticut makes sure nobody can protect themselves. This would also have delayed him and he would either have shot himself or stood up and been shot by the armed teacher. Here’s a mind bending thought for all you Liberals out there…if Connecticut had allowed its citizens to carry guns, this shooting probably would not have happened at all since madmen shooters don’t like to get shot at. All of these would have saved innocent babies lives.
For all you anti-gun Liberal whackjobs out there, the deaths of these innocent babies are on you. YOU killed them. You need to suck it up and own it. If you are going to pass laws that strip citizens of their right to protect themselves, their families and those around them, then YOU own the deaths that happen because of your self-serving ego that forces other people to be victims because that’s how YOU want it. Dead babies bled out on the cold ground today because YOU don’t want anyone to have a gun. It’s that simple. Own it.
There will always be madmen. There will always be guns, legal or illegal. Therefore there will always be madmen with guns. Liberals have made sure that in a world guaranteed to always and forever have madmen with guns, that their victims will always and forever be sacrificed like lambs to slaughter on the Liberal anti-gun alter. Madmen will walk into schools and malls and anywhere people gather knowing they walk among lambs, disarmed by other lambs, and the slaughter will be easy, bloody and without resistance.
All anti-gun laws do, and Liberals do, is sacrifice Americans, even baby Americans, at the end of a madman’s gun so their holier-than-thou self-righteousness can fuel their self-centered, ego-centric narcissistic ignorance.
I want to ask the Liberals in Connecticut…Don’t you wish even just one teacher had had a gun today? Dontcha? Dontcha?
