Another school shooting by a person bent on evil and/or revenge! What has been done since Columbine? Photo ops by politicians and demonizing the NRA, have done nothing to stop this evil violence. Prevention lies with the local community! Harden the target don’t wait for Congressional action! End the “gun free zone” nonsense. It is a truism that good triumphs over evil. A Good man or women with defensive weapons can defeat an evil shooter. Yelling and shouting will not bring solutions. When seconds count SWAT is minutes away.

The AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.”

There is a culture problem that has occurred in our young people since the 60’s. We must work to identify and correct.

“I want to speak now directly to America’s children — especially those who feel lost, alone, confused or even scared. I want you to know that you are never alone and you never will be,” Trump said. “Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness. We must also work together to create a culture in our country that embraces the dignity of life, that creates deep and meaningful human connections, and that turns classmates and colleagues into friends and neighbors.”
