Rush Limbaugh has a long history of being an outspoken conservative, sometimes going beyond what many conservatives would call normal. I know of some liberals who automatically turn him off or ignore what he says simply because of his reputation.
Hopefully, they will listen to him this time, at least a little as Limbaugh is pushing what many of us consider to the best and quickest way to combat the plague of school shootings. He says the answer isn’t more gun control but allowing for more concealed carry weapons in every public school in America.
(The Hill) – Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Sunday called for concealed carry in American schools to prevent mass shootings.
“The solution is we need concealed carry in these schools. If we are really serious about protecting the kids, we need a mechanism to be defensive when this kind of thing — if we’re not going to take action, we better have mechanisms in these schools to stop it when it breaks out,” Limbaugh told “Fox News Sunday.”
Limbaugh’s remarks come after 17 people were killed last week when a gunman opened fire at a high school in South Florida.
Some conservatives have suggested teachers should be armed as one solution to violence in schools…
Anti-gun Democrats will never admit that the bet defense is a good offense or that the best way to stop school shootings is to arm teachers and school faculty, but thre is a reason why so many school shootings is that there is no immediate first line of defense which means that students are vulnerable. They also refuse to understand that there is a big reason why school shooters don’t target schools known to have trained armed resistance waiting for them.
