Friday’s school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas re-kindled the debate on how to protect children from being massacred at school.
While many Democrats and high school activists, like David Hogg, immediately jump to the conclusion that banning guns will solve the problem, Senator Rand Paul provided a more common-sense approach to the problem and offered it during a live interview on Fox News. See Below
During an interview with the Harris Faulkner of Fox News Channel, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said it’s not guns that are the problem, but it’s the simple fact that schools broadcast to the small percentage of “homicidal” folks in America that “there is no self-defense” in the event that they heinously decide to shoot up a school.
Senator Paul said, “I think the first thing we should do is, there needs to be an announcement by every school district that we’re going to defend our children, and that we’re not going to have a sign outside that said, ‘We’re defenseless.’ And I think that’s the problem, is that we do have these homicidal or crazy or mentally disturbed kids, but they still aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.”
Paul then took a jab at Hollywood actors who speak so vigorously about gun control.
Senator Paul said, “Look, every Hollywood actor that hates guns has armed bodyguards defending them. So, they hate guns unless the guns are defending them. Let’s announce tomorrow and let’s encourage everybody who protects our kids, superintendents, principals, school boards, announce tomorrow we’re not going to leave our kids defenseless. We are going to defend our schools from crazy people with guns.”
Rand also mentioned that it’s a fraction of a fraction of a percent of people in America who are crazy enough to carry out a shooting massacre. And regardless of what we do, they are out there and looking to “copy-cat” what they are seeing occur around us.
Rand says we ultimately have to protect children in schools against these disturbed people with tighter security. And in the meantime, keep people who have psychiatric disorders or are constantly breaking the law from obtaining guns, which he believes there isn’t enough being done. Video Below
