The pro-police movement Rally For Law Enforcement is offering up a solution to protect schools and students from becoming the latest target of a mass shooting by allowing armed volunteers to patrol the school grounds while classes are in session.
“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. The left’s plan of gun free zones hasn’t worked. We have veterans, retired law enforcement and responsible citizens in our ranks that carry a firearm and they could be used to protect the schools and the students. This would be strictly on a volunteer basis but it does help solve the issue of protecting the schools and keeping the student’s safe,” said Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder Nohl Rosen.
Rosen said it takes 5 minutes or longer for the police to respond to an active shooting scene and that an armed volunteer patrolling the school or a teacher that’s armed could respond in seconds to take down a shooter.
“Many teachers carry firearms and have training using them and so do many of our members. The left has made this about blaming the guns rather than putting the blame on the person that uses the tool do harm. Firearms can save lives but they’re only focused on the minority that uses them to take lives purposely. More people have been killed by those using knives, driving cars, taking drugs and smoking cigarettes than they have with firearms. This isn’t a gun issue, it’s about what’s going on in the person’s heart and mind. Evil is evil and a person can kill just as easily using a car than they can using a firearm. Banning a certain firearm to try and solve the issue won’t accomplish anything and only punishes those who do use it responsibly,” Rosen added.
