‘Harsh events callfor harsh measures’
Unfortunately, there has been another university shooting, now here in Indiana. So what do we do about ending this type of violence?
Well, getting rid of all the guns in the U.S. is not the answer; the gun-control liberals who have tried this should just abandon their fight, lick their wounds and move on. It seems that since total eradication of guns is not the answer, perhaps the removal of the desire to use weapons violently would be the best course.
With the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan winding down, there are many Special Forces soldiers and Marines out of work. Why not use this suddenly unemployed resource to protect our future leaders being educated in our schools and universities?
When I was traveling through Israel a few years ago, I noticed a large group of small children walking to school one early morning in Jerusalem; interspersed among these children were several large special operators carrying all manner of weapons and harnesses in full view. I remember seeing the stern faces on these men and women, as if they were saying, “Nothing is going to happen to your children on my watch.”
Perhaps we can take a page from the Israeli protection playbook here. Have a huge, visible presence of highly trained people all over campus, essentially eliminating any thoughts of doing harm.
Without having to worry about violence in our schools, how many other problems can we solve? Harsh events call for harsh measures.
All working adults deserve our respect
“If he, she or you do not go to college, you will be flipping hamburgers.” (How many times have you heard that one?) Or, “you will be digging ditches or you will be stuck in menial jobs”?
What a snobbish, judgmental society we live in today!
