Congressman, in tears, speaks truth (*Video*)

The reports out of Newton are starting to coalesce into a story instead of a pile of wild speculations. In all of these stories we eventually hear about the heroes. The people who ran towards danger instead of away. The people who shielded others at the risk of themselves. The ones who got their charges to safety when all around them was chaos. (From the National Post of Canada)

Hochsprung [The school Principal] and Sherlach [The school psychologist] ran out of the room, toward the shots. “They didn’t think twice about confronting or seeing what was going on,” Day said. Hochsprung lunged at the gunman when she confronted him, officials say. She was killed. Sherlach is also believed to have been killed. 

Bare hands against gunfire. A sickening choice, but she had no other choices available to her.

One Congressman thinks she should have had the tools to match her courage.

President Lincoln would have called it her “last full measure of devotion.” Couldn’t we have armed her so she could have succeeded?

Representative Gohmert is no stranger to this sort of violence. (From Raw Story)

Gohmert became emotional as he continued: “You know, having been and judge and having reviewed photographs of these horrific scenes and knowing that children have these defensive wounds — gunshots through their arms and hands as they try to protect themselves — and hearing the heroic stories the principal, lunging trying to protect — Chris, I wish to God she had had an M4 in her office locked up. So, when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands, but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.”

We have been systematically trained in society to be passive and let the “authorities” handle it. We have been asked to be victims who await rescue by the agents of a benevolent state. Yet we ignore the fact that the agents of the state were already there. I maintain that if you don’t trust the teachers and the principal  with guns, you shouldn’t trust them with your children. This principal proved she could be trusted with the children. It’s sad that our society makes her prove it by getting murdered instead of allowing her the tools she needs to win.

  1. I sure wish he was my congressman. I liked the way he explained to the talking head why we have these weapons. When he was talking about the children with the defensive wounds I thought I was going to lose it. The Government is killing our children and all the obamabots can think about is how much they will get from their favorite uncle. Sometimes I wish the balloon would go up. Maybe we could clean out some of the useless scum that allow this to happen. I can think of several congresscritters that would look good with a hemp necktie.

  2. Robert, the government doesn’t have our best interests at heart, it has its own best interests at heart–which is to say the interests of those who make it up. Unfortunately, those interests are power, position and pull, not actually doing anything for We The People–unless they are forced into it.

    Time to start applying force. We just need to figure out how much, where and when. We need to find (or perhaps create) the skeletons in their closets and use them for leverage. We need to make them so scared that they are going to lose their power, position and pull that they listen and act in our interests for a change.

  3. Guys, the dead kids are a feature – not a bug. Authoritarians are always willing to sacrifice as many proles as it takes to get their way. The killings get weepy-eyed fools to decide that individual gun ownership is scary. (The education systems’ real job is to ensure an abundant supply of said fools!) This is part and parcel of the accretion of power into a very few hands. Look at the entire history of the 20th & 21st centuries. This is a story of power being usurped and concentrated.

    Ever wonder why the legacy media don’t raise a fuss about this concentration of power? Simple, the people who truly own them are the same ones who own the democrats and RINO wing of the GOP.

    In my opinion, we won’t have a sudden coup in this country, just a gradual temperature rise as “they” make frog soup.

    All that said, never commit anything of substance to email, discussion groups, or any other form of electronic communication. You may assume that it is ~all~ being sifted for seditious content.

  4. I think the problem is in the way we make gun laws and regulations. It makes not sense: http://scienceblogs.com/gregladen/2012/12/17/sandy-hook-their-horror-our-country-your-guns/

  5. I would love for all my readers to check out the above link. “Science” blog with absolutely no science involved. That takes talent.

  6. Yep, I read that “science blog”, and – like you said – it’s all junk science. Just more rhetoric, on top of more rhetoric. It’s shameful tragedies like those are so easily politicized and people are so quick to try for political “capital” from them. Time for common-sense, people! Stick to your guns.
