My Plan for Eliminating School Shootings

Culture is all one piece. The devaluing of human life in one area devalues it in other areas.

The notion that "everything is connected" is a fallacy. If Roe v. Wade "caused" this mass murder, then how does one explain the Bath, Michigan School Massacre (1927)? How does one account for Richard Speck murdering those student nurses in Chicago in 1966? This Adam Lanza was a severely withdrawn kid with zero social skills and an overbearing mother who figured out (too late) that he was too much of a handful.

I liked the article,but I have one question;
What makes him think a Female teacher wouldn't use a gun in defense of her class? The Principal (F) and a Teacher (M) at Newtown charged the shooter UNARMED,and I have no doubt at all that,if they had guns available,either one wouldn't have hesitated to drop him where he stood. It's instinctive to good Teachers to protect "their kids",using whatever resources are available.
I know two Female teachers,and either one would gladly get a CCW to be able to protect the children she is teaching. BTW-they're both Constitutionally devoted Conservatives.
That said-I agree there aren't enough male teachers,but I'd never consider ALL male teachers a solution to anything.

Well said, Motherx4. Although I don't think the Liberal Mind can make that connection. As you see by other comments that if you mention abortion as a "contributing" factor, they immediately get fixated on the word abortion (a leftist alert word) as the "only" factor and go into their "is not" defense.

As a candidate for president of the United States, it is incumbent on me to make a statement regarding the Sandy Hook massacre and to explain how my policies would help prevent other such massacres should I become president. As I discuss this sensitive topic, it is also incumbent on me to sound more rational and articulate than the incumbent. That will not be difficult.
As president, I plan to attack the issue in two ways. First, I will use the bully pulpit to influence voters and state lawmakers. Second, I will take direct action to influence...
