1. This shows that “arming teachers” (aka having armed personnel in schools) works
2. No students were killed by the shooter because the shooter was stopped by someone onsite with a gun
3. The incident was over before the police had a chance to arrive. Students’ lives WERE SAVED.
.
and most importantly:
.
4. There will be NO WALKOUT to support this success story in stopping gun violence in its tracks in our schools
5. There will be NO positive coverage of this story since it does not advance the anti-gun (NOT THE SCHOOL SAFETY) agenda
6. This will be reported and fund raised as a “gun violence in our schools – anti-gun” story

  1. 3 Data Points That Crush The Gun Control March
    .
    The Revolutionary Act
    03/22/18 
    .
    As we head into another energy-draining, media-drenched, wrong-headed protest by angry liberals in this weekend’s highly publicized anti-gun march in Washington, responding to the salvos of misinformation becomes a real challenge.
    .
    Those who understand and appreciate the Second Amendment and the Constitution — which does not include large numbers of protesters — should be armed with a few basic facts that really do make the entire anti-gun histrionics case go ker-splat!
    .
    These are important because whether it is the school kids or the activists or the media, the people driving this narrative are rarely if ever confronted with contextual facts. They shake their heads and wag their fingers in circular agreement chambers at the rubes who like guns, turn the NRA into Satan and claim what a fine job they are doing. But they are provably wrong.
    .
    So here’s a quick aide of three well-documented facts to share with friends and family if the discussion turns to the march and the latest wave of anti-gun rights theater.
    .
    ACTIVIST CHARGE: More guns means more gun violence and gun death. We must reduce guns to reduce gun violence. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote: “Fewer Guns = Fewer Deaths.” Dylan Scott at Vox wrote: “More guns tend to breed more violence — whether accidental or intentional.” These come from the more level heads in the anti-gun debate, much more tame and unemotional than the thousands of protesters that will be stomping about Washington.
    .
    ACTUAL DATA: The opposite may actually be true, or at least there is no national data correlation supporting their assertions. As the American Enterprise Institute chart below shows, the number of guns per American increased dramatically from 1993 to 2013. At the exact same time, the gun homicide rate dropped dramatically. So gun ownership increased 65 percent over 20 years nationally, while gun murders in the same 20 years fell by almost 50 percent. The march and the media are wrong.
    .
    CONCLUSION: Fewer guns does not mean lower crime.
    .
    3 Data Points That Crush The March For Our Lives Narrative
    .
    ACTIVIST CHARGE: We have the most mass shootings because of our antiquated gun culture. Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, speaking on the Senate floor after the Parkland shootings: “This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America.” Previously, President Obama had said: “…this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.”
    .
    ACTUAL DATA: A study by the Crime Prevention Research Center completed in 2015 of mass-shootings around the world for the previous six-year period shows the U.S. not only doesn’t lead the world in mass shootings, it’s not even in the top 10 among advanced nations.
    .
    Norway is No. 1, but that is an outlier because the country with a tiny population had the terrible mass shooting of 77 people in 2011. No. 2 is Serbia, then France, Macedonia, Albania, Slovakia, Finland, Belgium, and the Czech Republic. Then comes the U.S., at a rate of less than one-third that of France when it comes to mass shootings per capita.
    .
    As all of these European countries (often cited as the exemplars for the United States) either have strict laws on guns or ban them outright. They also have far fewer guns per capita. There would seem to be no correlation again between the availability of guns and mass shootings. This doesn’t even consider Third World nations. The march and the media are wrong.
    .
    CONCLUSION: Mass shootings in the United States are not high compared to many European nations.
    .
    3 Data Points That Crush The March For Our Lives Narrative
    .
    ACTIVIST CHARGE: More gun control laws reduce violence. A Los Angeles Times editorial argued: “The best data are clear: More guns mean more carnage, and stronger gun laws save lives.”
    .
    ACTUAL DATA: The actual research shows that more than 50 percent of all U.S. murders occur in 2 percent of American counties. Murder is shockingly concentrated in major cities that have very tight gun laws and, importantly, very low legal gun ownership. Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C. are among them. Conversely, in suburban and rural areas across the country where gun laws are more lax and legal gun ownership is high, there are low murder rates.
    .
    This is not necessarily a causal relationship. More guns may not cause fewer crimes based on these numbers. Other research has shown a similar corollary affect. However, it shows the opposite is certainly untrue. This is furthered by a famous chart comparing Chicago and Houston demographics, gun laws and crime rates. It is included below and further also shows no correlation between gun control and lower murder rates. The opposite could be argued. The march and the media are wrong.
    .
    CONCLUSION: Tighter gun laws and fewer legal gun owners does not reduce the murder rate.
    .
    3 Data Points That Crush The March For Our Lives Narrative
    .
    These three data points make the factually irrefutable case that the problem is not the availability guns. It’s who is using them, and where.
    .
    (Note: A bonus fourth data point: Since 1950, more than 98 percent of public mass shootings in America have taken place in “gun-free zones.” So, also not a solution.)
    .
    These three points are worth remembering and sharing with friends and family as the march dominates news and a lot of social media this weekend.

  2. Video of Dad exploding on principal for letting kids, 12, hold anti-gun walkout

    )
    .
    A California father is boiling mad, demanding to know who authorized 12-year-old children to walk out of their middle-school classes for an anti-gun protest last week.
    .
    The father, identified as John Gunn, videotaped his confrontation with Anacapa Middle School Principal Barbara Boggio, with the Ventura Unified School District in Ventura, California. He posted the video on Facebook after young kids left class last Wednesday for the National School Walkout. Gunn said the school never told him that the students would be allowed to leave class.
    .
    “I want to know who authorized these kids to go out and leave the class when I wasn’t even notified about it,” Gunn told Boggio the day after the protest.
    .
    The principal can be heard replying, “As our school planned for who and what, we anticipated something …”
    .
    But Gunn was clearly not having it.
    .
    “Sixth-graders?! Sixth-graders? When do sixth-graders make decisions?” he asked.
    .
    Gunn continued:
    .
    When do 12-year-olds make decisions? You’re an adult, you’re the school, you’re supposed to teach my child. You don’t influence my child in any which way. Democrat, liberal, Republican, whatever it is. I want it out of the school system.
    .
    So why did my son have to sit in that class – because he didn’t leave – but why wasn’t I notified that this was going to happen?
    .
    Who authorized it? I want to know who authorized you to tell the teachers that if [students] want to leave, it’s OK.
    .
    As Boggio appeared to deflect with her answers, Gunn asked, “You’re not going to answer my question, are you? Who authorized it?”
    .
    The principal responded, “There was no such authorization.”
    .
    “Then who let it happen?” Gunn demanded.
    .
    Then Boggio explained that if a “student chose to leave, that’s their choice.”
    .
    “What do you mean that’s their [choice]?!” Gunn asked. “They’re sixth-graders.”
    .
    The principal claimed school officials cannot “restrain” kids if they want to leave class.
    .
    “I’m going to sue the school district, OK?” Gunn said. “I already have a lawyer.”
    .
    Boggio stammered, “Oh, uh, OK.”
    .
    Gunn said he was very angry when he learned about the walkout and would have kept his son home if he had been notified.
    .
    Boggio suggested Gunn contact Ventura Unified School District Superintendent David Creswell if he wants to know who authorized the kids to leave. Gunn told the Independent Journal Review that he called Creswell’s office but was told he was in a meeting and that human resources would contact him. However, he said, he has not heard back from them.

    U.S. schools pushed kids as young as 5 years old to participate in the anti-gun protests, MRCTV reported Wednesday.
    .
    WINY Radio recently reported that a kindergarten class walked by a gun protest at Killingly High School in Dayville, Connecticut. The station reportedly posted a video of the incident on Facebook. However, WINY noted:
    .
    WINY has removed a video from today’s gun-violence protest at Killingly High School due to requests from parents. The video, sent in by a parent, showed a group of pre-school students led by two teachers walking past the protest, which was held outside in front of the main entrance to Killingly High School. WINY spoke with one of the teachers in the video, Janet McDonald, who said they took the children outside because it was a nice day and on the way back into the school, they walked past the protest. In the video, the teachers can be seen giving the thumbs up to the protesters while clapping and one of the teachers can be seen and heard joining the chant of “stop the violence”. The video was submitted by a parent, Lamonica Vazquez who joined her high school aged child in the protest today at Killingly High School.
    .
    Schools across America have been accused of promoting the protests and pushing kids to join.
    .
    “Schools are grappling with how to address the (protest) event with children as young as 5 years old and with finding ways for children who are too little to be told about school shootings to take part,” reported the Wall Street Journal on March 10.
