“Would it be a deterrent if, you know, say perpetrators know that there’s guns in the schools? How do we know they wouldn’t view that as a challenge? I mean, we got a goofy world out there. I’m just not convinced that packing a small firearm is the best defense or certainly not the best defense.
You know, you want to make the best defense? Make the school a damn fortress. I mean, you could do that, I mean but, is that reasonable? Is that the right thing to do? Is it necessary? […] haven’t we had enough school shootings where this is necessary? We’ve never had a civilian stop a shooting.”
Really, Mr. Shultz?
Here are some examples to refute that statement:
- In December, 2012, Jesus Manuel Garcia opened fired over 30 rounds in a San Antonio movie theatre, wounding a 49-year-old man. Off-duty Sergeant, Lisa Castellano, fired four shots with her firearm, wounding the gunman and ending his rampage.
- A man shot and killed two people in a mall in Clackamas, Oregon, on December 11, 2012, before taking his own life. Nick Meli told the local new reporter that, after seeing Meli's concealed carry holder, the last shot the gunman fired was “used on himself.”
- In the early hours of May 25, 2008, in Winnemucca, Nevada, Ernesto Villa Gomez walked into a bar and started shooting. Brothers, 20-year-old Jose Torres and 19-year-old Margarito Torres, were killed. While Villa Gomez was reloading his gun, a man from Reno with a concealed weapons permit took out his gun and shot Villa Gomez.
- Davis G. Dawkins, 19, and Duwayne Henderson, also 19, stormed the busy Palms Internet Cafe in Ocala, Florida, on July 13, 2012, brandishing a handgun and a baseball bat. Samuel Williams, 71, pulled out his pistol and began firing at the thugs who then ran for the door. No patrons were harmed. The incident was caught on three surveillance cameras.
Precisely right! That's why the federal government is trying to get your permission to take your constitutional rights away - one by one.
So, Mr. Schultz? What do you say now? You lied to all of your listeners. I thought newspeople were supposed to report the facts - and only the facts. But, the media has adopted the agenda of the elitists and the truth is inconsequential.
