    Can’t agree with much of the article. The link didn’t work so I read it on Rutherford site. When he uses terms like ‘military grade weapons’ and agrees with WAPO that more armed guards leads to more violence in school, I tend to lose interest.

    Why do we trust men and women who decide to become policemen with a gun but don’t trust a few interested teachers with the same firearms credentials? My 11 year old granddaughter shoots pistol and rifle every other week and has since age 8 which is more time than most (all?) police. Ask a policeman how much time they spend on the range. They spend more time memorizing litter laws.

    We’re not talking guerilla or urban and tactical combat. We’re talking about the teacher in Sandy Hook who had time to hide her children in a closet, throw some coats over the top, waited in the classroom for the door to open AND WAS HELPLESS. At that time, it’s BANG, BANG, BANG, he’s dead.

    When DHS, ICE, and SSA order 1.2 billion rounds of ammo. Monitors our emails, text messages and phone calls. Monitors our movements via drones, supplies local government departments with battlefield grade weapons while making plans to criminalize law-abiding citizens with laws they will not comply with the government is indeed upping the ante and they are not up to anything good.

    People do indeed feel a need to protect themselves from the government. All the people can do is make the common sense response of clearing the stores of guns and ammo too. Pray and hope for the best. It’s increasingly difficult to see a bright future for my son and his generation and the generations after them.

    Hopeless Change is their real motto.
