Another New [2018] Study: Schools Have Actually Gotten Safer

A U.S. Department of Education report released [in 2018] claimed 235 schools reported at least one incident involving a gun during the 2015-16 school year.  But most of those incidents never happened, according to an analysis [amazingly] by NPR.   Reporters managed to confirm just 11 incidents from the government data.  The rest?        Reporting errors.

Among the 25 most-cited school shooters since Columbine, 75 percent were reared in ‘incredibly’ broken homes…  In fact, the fathers of three of the most infamous school shooters were absent from their sons’ lives…  The adoptive father of Nikolas Cruz died when Cruz was 5 years old.  And the father of 6-year-old Dedrick Owens, the country’s youngest school shooter, was in jail when his son killed his first grade classmate.  Dedrick Owens’ father has said that he suspects his son’s crime was a reaction to his absence…  [S]cholar Brad Wilcox called attention to the work of criminologists Michael Gottfredson and Travis Hirschi, which found the absence of fathers to be one of the ‘most powerful predictors of crimes‘…  A good starting place would be to reduce the marriage penalties that have been built into our welfare system.

Before 1995, states let teachers carry concealed handguns at school.  Research was unable to find a single instance when faculty improperly used a permitted handgun       at school.

[F]ire-extinguishers are mounted at regular intervals along [school] walls – not on the teachers, but reasonably close by.  So imagine, next to every school fire-extinguisher, a gun safe, containing one or more rifles, and on the shelf, one or more magazines for each rifle.  Imagine, also, next to each fire alarm, a second alarm, a ‘shooter on premises alarm’ – one that, when triggered, emits a distinctive sound, different from that of a fire alarm.

Media Misinformation About Arming Teachers
Criminology research has proven that lawbreakers often attack soft targets or easy prey.  In the words of the textbook Forensic Science: Advanced Investigations, ‘Very often, a criminal chooses a target based on the vulnerability of the victim.’  The academic book The Psychology of Criminal and Antisocial Behavior: Victim and Offender Perspectives agrees.  It says, ‘Predators, irrespective of their end game, are exceptionally good at identifying the weak members of the herd.  Even terrorists who ‘want to die’ are deterred by security.’  They ‘fear failure,’ David Grossman explains, and ‘desperately do not want to die for nothing.’ Grossman is a former West Point psychology professor and world-renowned authority on the mindsets of killers.

… &

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had about 3,200 students and one armed guard during the massacre.  This is about 40 times less security per person than the Dome. Columbine had about 1,900 students and one armed guard, or 24 times less.

… &

Even civilians — who rarely have regular, formal training — save far more lives with guns than are lost in accidents.  This is another area where many media outlets have grossly misled their audiences.  But some key facts [include]:
    Civilians use guns to stop lethal violence more than 100,000 times per year, while there are less than 600 fatal firearm accidents per year.

… &

    “A 2013 study ordered by President Obama and conducted by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council found that:
    ‘Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million. …’ [and]
    ‘Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies. …'”

… &

Even under a high-cost scenario where teachers receive far more training than police and are paid at a rate of $50 per hour for their training time, the annual cost of equipping, training, and supervising these teachers would be less than 1% of current government spending on K–12 schools.

The Broward County School Board and District Superintendent, entered into a political agreement with Broward County Law enforcement officials to stop arresting students for crimes.  The motive was simple.  The school system administrators wanted to ‘improve their [youth crime] statistics’ and gain state and federal grant money for improvements therein.  So police officials, the very highest officials of law enforcement (Sheriff and Police Chiefs), entered into a plan…  this was a well-planned fundamental shift in the entire dynamic of how teenagers would be treated when they engaged in criminal conduct…  Initially the police were excusing misdemeanor behaviors.  However, it didn’t take long until felonies, even violent felonies (armed robberies, assaults and worse) were being excused…  The need to continue lowering the arrests year-over-year meant that increasingly more severe unlawful behavior had to be ignored.  Over time even the most severe of unlawful conduct was being filtered by responding police…  Participating in the cover-up were people in the media who were connected to the entire political apparatus…  Understanding the risk behind the scheme, it became increasingly important to put the [most] corrupt cops in the schools.  Those SRO’s became the ones who were best at hiding the unlawful conduct…  For years this has been happening and no-one [in Broward County] cared…  then a Parkland school shooting happened [in which] the shooter was one of those previously excused students…

The Parkland shooting was also a perfect storm of criminal negligence.  First, because armed deputies were ordered to wait outside the building during the worst part of the rampage.  Second, because the FBI failed to act on a tip.   Third, because school officials failed to make police referrals that would have denied the shooter’s right to buy a gun. The last failure is the most egregious because it goes far beyond mere laziness or incompetence; it was a deliberate plan to minimize the so-called ‘school to prison’ pipeline.

Colorado has ‘done something’ but without much success in stopping yet another school shooting.

[Which is exactly how gun “control” operates. Lots of handwaving and back patting followed by more shootings and dead people.]

2019 Colorado shooter hated Christians for disagreeing with homosexuality, praised Democrat Obama

The left’s lies, propagated by the mainstream, left wing media, that homosexuals are hated and persecuted by Christians, and that biological sex is just one more ‘choice’ to be taught to our young people, contributed to this latest government school violence.

[ASND wonders how many of those who immediately called for additional gun control following the Newtown, Connecticut massacre saw these stories, published the very same day as the Connecticut story (well, published everywhere but in the mainstream, liberal media, that is). ]

“A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.”

A man angered by a court ruling in the murder of his daughter rammed a car loaded with a gas tank and firecrackers into a group of middle schoolers, injuring 13 in the country’s latest attack on students.

[ASND also wonders how many of those people saw this story, also published the same day as Connecticut:      Four people set on fire during assault in North Denver http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/several-people-set-on-fire-during-attempted-robbery-in-north-denver ]

[ASND wonders if those people also call for more laws against knives, cars and gasoline since everyone knows people don’t kill people, knives and gasoline do.]

[ASND also wonders why American school systems aren’t willing to be more like         Israeli  schools , which provide protection FOR young lives rather than “protection” (prophylactics) against them.]

[The] shootings [in Newtown, CT], which killed [20 children and 7 adults], demonstrated once again the folly of ‘gun-free zones,’ which attract and assist people bent on mass murder instead of deterring them.

[For those who won’t bother to actually read it, that story wasn’t actually about the Newtown, CT massacre.  That article was orginally about  another  massacre   (on a U.S. military base, no less) which, like the Newtown massacre, could have been greatly limited had there been armed adults in the building (as there are in  Israeli  schools ).      It probably comes as no surprise to learn that firearm-trained teachers are prohibited from carrying those weapons of mass protection into government schools. But how many of you knew that trained U.S. soldiers are also not allowed to carry their own weapons on military bases?]

Guns actually SAVED many people’s lives — including children’s lives — in Newtown, CT.

School District Plans for More Armed Security Following Criticism over “Rocks” Defense

[This was also interesting.]

Giving kids a bucket of rocks to use against an intruder actually sends a couple of messages that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
