Guns Save Lives

Dateline: 14 years ago

Assistant Principal Joel Myrick heard the shooting when it began and immediately went into action. After getting several students to safety and figuring out what was going on Myrick knew what he had to do. Myrick had a Colt .45 handgun in his truck. Due to gun laws Myrick was not allowed to carry his gun on his person. Myrick ran to his vehicle, retrieved the gun, loaded it, and headed back to the school.

Woodham was already in the parking lot, getting into his car. Myrick confronted Woodham in the parking lot, held his gun to the boy’s head and managed to subdue Woodham until police arrived.

    While I’m all in favor of arming the Principal’s AP’s or even school custodians, I think we are missing a huge opportunity for the creation of literally MILLIONS of jobs…

    School Safety Officers: Soft-dress, non-intimidating, and ARMED. For minimal intimidation factor, the firearm can be concealed in an ankle holster, or underneath a sweater or blazer.

    Think about it people; ex-cops, security professionals, military, would have good, secure jobs, and we would all have a piece of mind when are children are at school.
