‘We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise.’

‘We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.’

C.S. Lewis

We defund, hamstring, harass, prosecute and murder the police and are astonished and outraged when they aren’t gung ho to protect us.

‘People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.’

George Orwell

What happens when those rough men—and women—no longer stand ready?  What happens when none can be found willing to uphold traditional standards of honor and duty?   What happens when we no longer have men and women willing to put the welfare, even the lives, of others ahead of their own, when no one will run to the sound of gunfire or put their own life at risk to save others?

‘We must do it for the children.’

Innumerable politicians

Whenever free men and women hear this platitude, they know whatever “it” is, the politician’s gaseous emission means “it” cannot be justified on its own merits, will steal essential liberty from individual Americans and will increase politician’s power over them.  They must also: 1) check their wallet, because the politician’s hand is reaching for it, and 2) check their liberty, because the politician has already drafted the means to steal it.

‘They that would surrender essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.’

Benjamin Franklin

This cannot be said enough: unless armed force awaits any school attacker when and where he attacks, the only unknown is how many children and teachers will be wounded or killed before the police arrive, figure out where the attacker is, and kill them, or the attacker decides he’s killed enough and commits suicide.  

Unless, of course, the police decide to do nothing until the killer has had his fill of murder.

This also can’t be said enough: the police have no legal duty to protect any individual, and you can’t sue them for failing to protect you or yours.

There is no other way, no law, no narrative, no cancelation, nothing that will save lives when deterrence and security measures have failed.  Only willing, armed teachers and other school staff, and many of them, can serve as the last line of defense.  Anyone denying this cold, hard reality is stupid, evil, both or a politician.

I’ll not discuss in this article, in any detail, other security measures such as more effective doors and locks, video systems, School Resource Officers, former military or police officers standing guard, single entry points, metal detectors and all the rest.  This article is about the last resort, about when deterrence—and there is very little throughout the nation as this is written—fails, about when a killer is coming down the hallway where your 8 year-old daughter sits, unaware, in her classroom.

When that happens, and we know beyond any doubt it does, if, despite every other possible security measure, a killer is on his way to your daughter’s classroom, do you truly want her teacher—every teacher—to be disarmed, unable to have the opportunity to save the lives of their charges, to save their own life?  Does the deterrence armed teachers uniquely provide truly mean nothing to you, or does deterrence simply not exist in your reality?

This article, gentle readers, is about the people that want every teacher, every adult, every American, to be disarmed.  It begins at the top:

‘In discussing how we might come together to target the problem of mental illness and school safety, we’ll get back at it next week and hope to have results,’ [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell said Tuesday.

But the White House reacted negatively to McConnell’s proposals.

‘Those are two things that he does not agree on,’ White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre said on Tuesday when asked about McConnell’s proposals at the daily press briefing.

She said Biden was not interested in making schools more secure to help stop potential shooters.

‘That is not his focus obviously and when it comes to school … I know there has been a conversation about hardening schools, that is not something he believes in,’ Jean-Pierre said.

“I know there has been a conversation about hardening schools, that is not something he—President Biden–believes in.”  Of course he doesn’t need to worry about such things.  His family and he, our federal legislators and much of the self-imagined elite, live and work in hardened surroundings, protected by scores of agents armed with automatic weapons.  What’s in it for him if he protects your children?  It won’t get him any ice cream, that’s for sure.

She also dismissed proposed legislation on mental health issues, focusing instead on the ‘pandemic’ of gun violence in the United States.

‘What’s the problem here. The problem is with guns and not having legislation to really deal with an issue that is a pandemic here in this country,’ she said.

There is certainly no “pandemic” of school attacks.  They remain, thankfully, rare.  There are certainly parts of the country where people kill with impunity, but those are, virtually without exception, large cities ruled for decades by Democrats/Socialists/Communists, who do nothing to prosecute the predators who commit those crimes, just as the D/S/C media propaganda arm ignores those crimes.  But surely our federal legislators are people of good will? 

F— your prayers.  They haven’t worked for the last 20 mass shootings how about passing laws that will stop these killings,’ Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., tweeted at Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

Gallego also tweeted at Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas: ‘Just to be clear f— you @tedcruz you f—ing baby killer.’

Normal Americans—decent people—understand the power of prayer.  People like Gallego understand only political power. Gallego isn’t the only one:

He also said: “Enough with your thoughts and prayers.”

Surely Gallego and Jones are the only cruel, hateful D/S/C representatives?

Democrat Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island said a bit of the anti-gun left’s quiet part out loud in a House hearing on Thursday when he went on a rant against the constitutionally protected rights of the American people.

“Spare me the bullshit about constitutional rights.”

Cicilline and Jones, like an ever-increasing number of D/S/Cs, are saying out loud what they really think about the Constitution, about their role in ruling, and what they intend for America and Americans.  It has nothing to do with justice, the rule of law, or preserving our representative republic.  It has less then nothing to do with liberty.  How is it we allow such people to remain in office?  How about the Senate Majority leader?  Surely he wants effective school security?

Days after the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Wednesday blocked a Republican-sponsored bill that would create a national clearinghouse for school safety, claiming without evidence the bill would bring ‘more guns in schools.’

But what about our Cabinet Secretaries?  Surely they’re more sane and empathetic?

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Sunday on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that those blaming school shootings on a lack of security was the ‘definition of insanity.’

A man pretending to give birth in a hospital, complete with a little wrist bracelet: sure, that’s sane.

‘Doing the same things over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.’

Albert Einstein

Buttigieg, who is very gay, is misleading.  No one is claiming a lack of security causes school attacks.  A lack of security certainly provides no deterrence, and it certainly makes a killer’s attack easier and more deadly.  What Buttegieg is doing is supporting Biden, who doesn’t believe in school security.

Obviously, the self-imagined hate us, hate God, Americans and America, and have no intention whatever of providing the same level of protection they enjoy for our children and teachers.  But what about “police reform activists?”

During the latest episode of MSNBC’s The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross on Saturday, leftist police reform activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham claimed the recent Texas school shooting is further proof that America must abolish the police.

You can find far more of the same hatred, lunacy, and destructive policy ideas with a click of the mouse, gentle readers.  What is absolutely clear is the self-imagined elite of both parties, care nothing for the lives of children and teachers.  Their only concern is keeping and increasing their political power, their ability to rule you, and of course that means decreasing your individual liberty and personal safety.

They do not want a School Resource Officer in every school.  Many of them, so deranged by hatred of the police and inanimate objects, do not want police officers in schools at all, and they absolutely do not want guns in schools.  For many, it’s mostly a woke/racial issue.  They argue police officers frighten and trigger minority children and teachers, and are somehow racist.  Others are far less sane–quite a feat–arguing the mere presence of police officers and guns somehow magically despoil a pristine educational environment.

They never let a crisis go to waste, which is why after every thankfully rare school attack, their only solution is to disarm the American public.  School attacks don’t occur because they’ve all but obliterated effective, in patient mental health treatment in America, because they’re defunded the police and removed SROs from schools, because they refuse to allow effective deterrence and school security, because they refuse to prosecute violent criminals, no.  They occur because the Second Amendment recognizes the fundamental, unalienable right to self-defense and the right to take up arms to oppose tyranny.  They occur because normal, law-abiding Americans own firearms, the bastards!

Even as our meat puppet President addresses the nation to lie about everything relating to these issues, he and the rest of the self-imagined elite mostly say they’re not after your guns.  That must be why Mr. Biden not only screams for the banning of AR-15 pattern rifles, magazines of greater than five round capacity, and now, the 9mm round, and surely every handgun chambered for that round.  AR-15 pattern rifles are the most popular in America, and the 9mm cartridge, and handguns chambered for it, also the most popular.

Why would Mr. Biden focus on the AR-15 or the 9mm?  Because anti-liberty/gun cractivists know if they can ban any single class of firearm, it will be easier to ban another and another, and eventually, all of them.  Banning the 9mm would eliminate over 50% of the handgun market.

Who surround themselves at taxpayer expense…

Biden also demands the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (2005), lying about that too.  I explained the issue in detail in PLCAA Lies: Intentions.  Take the link to read the whole article.

For our purposes here, I’ll simply note every law Biden and his handlers and supporters advocate would not only have done nothing to prevent any known school attack, they would harass only the law-abiding.  People planning the mass murder of children tend to have little regard for lesser laws, particularly when they’re planning to commit suicide.  Why does he continually harp on repealing the PLCAA?  Nothing so reveals the ultimate intention of the self-imagined elite to disarm Americans.

The law only prevents lawsuits intended to bankrupt every firearm and ammunition manufacturer.  It prevent lawsuits for properly designed and manufactured products misused by third parties about who the manufacturer has no knowledge and no over who they have no control.  It does not prevent lawsuits for defective products, negligence or other traditional torts.  It was written, and passed by a truly bipartisan vote, because anti-liberty/gun fanatics planned to use it to sue the firearm industry into oblivion–lawfare–which is their intention now if they can repeal it.

How can people be so hateful, so ignorant?  How can they so readily dismiss reality?  I’ve often written on this topic.

Such people think themselves morally and intellectually superior.  Because they are destined to rule over lesser beings, they recognize no law, no restraint, and the end always justifies the means.  They will tell any lie, weaponize the DOJ, FBI, IRS and every other governmental agency to get their way, just as Rep. Jones promised.

In considering any gun control bill, such as “Red Flag” laws, Americans now have to ask if their government can be trusted to apply such laws uniformly and fairly?  The answer, sadly, is obvious, isn’t it?  Even now, some congressional Republicans are falling for D/S/C propaganda and are engaging in “talks” that can do nothing but diminish liberty.  Communists have long had a term for such people: useful idiots.  If–when?–they fall for it, D/S/Cs will proclaim the unconstitutional, cynical laws are bipartisan.

Because they are exalted beings, their values and policies cannot possibly be wrong.  They cannot be falsified, which is why they ignore evidence, and as Biden said, believe in “truth” over facts.  They construct their own reality, their own “truth,” and demand everyone else praise their reality and truths.  When their policies fail—as they inevitably do—they first try gaslighting, claiming their policies didn’t fail, you’re just to stupid to see how brilliant they are.  They eventually shift to blaming anyone and anything but themselves–Russia is a favorite with the American people running a close second.  They argue their policies have failed because they graciously allowed Normal Americans to continue to exist to oppose them, which is why they want to abolish the First Amendment.  They argue not enough money has been spent, and not enough time has been allotted for the miracles of their policies to manifest–they haven’t given it to Normals good and hard enough–which is why they want to resurrect the failed decade long “assault weapon” ban, which accomplished nothing whatever for public safety.  This time, they would make it permanent, which would give them all the time they need for the policy to succeed, “success” being defined as whatever they say it is.

In short, gentle readers, such people care nothing for the dead of Uvalde, other than whatever temporary political advantage their deaths might provide.  Their deaths are temporarily useful in that they hope to use gun control and feigned concern for the dead to distract the public, pre-mid term elections, from the horrible failure of their policies.  They hope they can use that emotion and anguish to further their long-term goals of absolute rule over Americans.  Unless they can disarm Americans, they can never impose their fanciful, totalitarian utopia.  They will do nothing to aid in the establishment of effective school security because that would not benefit them politically. It would distract from their distraction.  No dead children and teachers, no crisis to exploit.

They always scream anyone who opposes their efforts to steal liberty wants dead children.  Am I saying that about them?  Surely not all of them.  Mostly, they give little thought to the lives of lesser beings.  You’re just not important to them until it’s time to vote, and only then if they don’t think they can cheat enough to win without those votes.  Once they’ve won you’re immediately out of sight, out of mind.  I won’t go as far as Joe Biden, but the effect is the same.

And now you know, gentle readers, if you didn’t before, just how difficult it’s going to be to establish actual school security.  You also know, when it comes to protecting the lives of our loved ones and ourselves, we’re on our own.  We always have been.
