We KNOW how to secure the schools – WHY AREN’T YOU LISTENING???

Anyone who has ever worked at a bank, guarded a military arsenal, flightline, or transportation yard, arranged security for kids on a field trip, or lifeguarded pools KNOWS how to secure schools so this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN. Thing of it is, we’ve known this for decades, and some schools in our nation are VERY secure. They’re […]

An Appeal to the Students and School Officials of Virginia Tech

As a graduate of Virginia Tech, I entered the United States Air Force where I served as a rated officer with distinction and honor for 20+ years, retiring in 2009.   However, I remain deeply saddened by the unnecessary loss suffered by us all in 2007. Sadly, some people remain convinced that allowing adults to […]

A Sensible Plan Towards Armed Teachers

20190526 Update:  This plan is not associated with either Laura Carno or FASTER.  I began this thread on February 4, 2013, about a month and a half after the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting.  I only learned about Carno’s efforts earlier this evening.  I will defer all further commentary until after I’ve […]

Our Time of Reckoning Is At Hand

If any of you might be thinking “our time of reckoning is at hand,” you’d be right. The American People need to come to grips with something, and they’d better get it real quick, before their government takes away something they granted a long time ago. Owning and carrying (that’s the “keep and bear” part) […]

Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre

Yesterday, yet another firearms-related tragedy occurred at the Sandy Hook Element School in Connecticut.  It was the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech Massacre. As graduate of Virginia Tech, I’d like to say how sad I am for the family, friends, and colleagues of those who were lost or injured.  […]
