As a mother the thought of guns in our schools scares me, period. Whether the gun totter is a trained teacher or a deranged psychopath. But with today's news of another rampage, my mind may be getting a bit more open to the idea.
What has gone wrong in America? How did we get to where we are? As much as I love a good conspiracy, what has been going around about the Sandy Hook shooting is just going to far. Now one man, a hero to many that day, is now being portrayed as a villain. It's just makes me sick.
Today marked the first legal action taken in the midst of the tragedy that took the lives of 26 children and adults two weeks ago at Sandy Hook School in Connecticut. You may however be surprised at who is being sued and the reason why may shock you as well.
It's hard for most of us to conceive the evil notions that go through someone's mind while planning and carrying out a plan like the one last Friday in Connecticut or the tragedy in West Virginia, the two deadliest school "shootings" but neither was worse than the actual "massacre" that took place at the Bath Consolidated School in 1927.
I continue to struggle with the idea of school districts passing laws to allow guns in our schools, in the name of protecting our kids. Realistically, who do you think should be able to carry weapons in our schools?
