School ‘gun free zones’ are death traps: Why we must allow qualified school principals and office staff to carry concealed

Thirty-two thousand Americans are killed each year in automobile accidents, and the President sheds no tears for them. The deaths aren’t on the news, and there is no call to “ban cars” to prevent the deaths. Over 100,000 Americans are killed each year by government-approved pharmaceuticals, yet we never see all those dead bodies on the evening news.
The government’s horror at Americans dying, it seems, is highly selective. Only people killed with certain kinds of things — such as guns — are “celebrated” by the federal government.
As the recent Newtown, Conn. school shooting reminds us, criminals pay no attention to “gun free zone” signs that often emblazon our public schools. Just because some government bureaucrat declares a school to be a gun-free zone does not alter the action of some psycho-crazed, medicated kid showing up with a bunch of guns he stole from somebody else (which is exactly what happened with Adam Lanza in Conn).
But because all the teachers and school employees abide by the gun-free zone rules, they are completely disarmed at all times. This is why schools are the perfect hunting grounds for psychopathic criminals who want to avoid anyone shooting back.
