Albert Einstein once said: The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing while expecting a different result.
Most of us know that the shooter was a 17 year old that killed 10 people. I’d like to point out a few other things and then ask a question that I sincerely want to be answered… though seemingly very few are asking it.
- The school was trained in shooter drills
- The school had two armed and trained police patrolling on the campus at the time of the shooting.
- The school was a gun free zone.
- The shooter having those weapons on him was against the law as he was not registered.
- The shooter killed/injured other people even though it was against the law.
- The school hadn’t adopted the program of arming their teachers
- The shooter had no prior incidents to indicate he may be a shooter.
- The shooter also used bombs (and installed them) which cannot be regulated. IE, gun laws have nothing to do with planting bombs, making bombs, preventing the purchase of homemade bomb materials, etc.
With this knowledge, it has become readily apparent that gun laws and restrictions absolutely do not work. If an under aged kid can get two guns onto a gun free zone being patrolled by multiple armed agents and kill 10 people that were trained and given an award for being able to respond quickly and safely to that exact situation… then it doesn’t work.
Yet, for some reason, people just want to increase more of what doesn’t work. This is the definition of insanity. More government and restriction will somehow work? Did outlawing drugs shut down the drug trade?
So here is my big question.
Why all the school shootings lately? School shootings used to be virtually unheard of. Now they seem quite common. What happened?! The laws certainly didn’t get more relaxed. So what changed?!
