An Information War Case Study: Pro-Second Amendment Articles

These pro-Second Amendment links were easily gathered since the Parkland school mass murder — and I didn’t even include all those I came across. A couple of the excerpts are long due to the important information contained in them that wasn’t easily shortened. They are sorted by date, with the newest residing at the top. There are also two videos embedded following the article links.

I realize, of course, that very few people will read or even peruse all of these articles. I link them here to make the point about how much material conservatives produce. Sadly, to repeat, too little of it is seen by those who could most benefit from it.

First, please note the excerpts I posted from Bruce Thorton’s important article “Another School Shooting, Another Flawed Response” that was published back on  February 28th.

America’s Gun Violence Represents A Failure Of Leadership, Not Laws
We’ve convinced ourselves that gun-free zones and legal tweaks like the bill to ‘fix’ a federal database are the solution to the nation’s violence problem. They’re not.

Everything that happened in Florida that led to the horrific shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is a lesson in leadership, or the lack of it. And solutions that focus on laws instead of leadership are bound to fail. The disgraced Broward County sheriff, Scott Israel, whose office repeatedly ignored pleas to arrest the killer before the massacre and told officers at the scene to stand down, deserves much of the blame for the mishandling of the Parkland shooter.

The Parkland Shooting, And Why We Need To Put Reason Over Emotion
The response to the Parkland shooting why we always have to guard against relying on a purely emotional appeal instead of fact and logic.

The hyping of the Parkland kids is one giant appeal to emotion. The approach is to go to a school where a shooting happened and carefully select a small number of kids who are reasonably articulate and willing to go along with the full gun-control agenda. Ignore the ones who don’t. Then give these kids the backing of well-funded and well-connected advocacy groups. Fly them around the country and book them on cable TV shows. Then insist that these 17-year-olds are invested with absolute moral authority, and if anyone challenges this, scream at them for being insensitive to the victims of a horrific crime and basically hating children and wanting to see them die.

There’s Simply No Sense In Allowing Schools To Remain Soft Targets For Killers
Would you put up a gun-free zone sticker or yard sign in front of your house? No, you put up signs indicating you have a security system.

Dangerous people have a difficult time attacking hardened targets. So they opt for soft targets — like suburban schools and other soft locations like some religious facilities. This is nothing new. The Colorado shooter who murdered at a movie theater in 2012 and rigged his apartment with catastrophic explosives did so at a theater that was a gun-free zone, even though it was farther away from him than many other theaters that weren’t gun-free zones. The same goes for the 2015 shooting at a South Carolina church, which was not the shooter’s reported original hardened target, a college.

Watch: I Got a Gun to Protect My Children, Mom of 3 Says

A mother of three decided she wanted to be able to defend her children from intruders, just as her own mother had when she was a child. That’s why she bought a gun, as she explained in an op-ed essay Monday in The New York Times.

NRA Member Stopped Massacre with AR-15

Stephen Willeford…last November stopped the gunman behind the deadly Texas church massacre said using an AR-15 enabled him to end the bloodshed… If a good guy with a gun had been inside the First Baptist Church, instead of outside, the killer could have been blown away… [W]e don’t need more unarmed potential victims sitting like sheep, targets in what amounts to a gun-free zone… [T]here were numerous laws already on the books, including “laws against murder,” and the attacker violated those laws without hesitation… “So adding some other gun law, I don’t think would in any way change this guy’s behavior.”

How Many Lives Are Saved by Guns — and Why Don’t Gun Controllers Care?

Criminologist and researcher Gary Kleck, using his own commissioned phone surveys and number extrapolation, estimates that Americans use guns for defensive purposes 1.2 million times each year — and that 1 in 6 Americans who have used guns defensively believe someone would have died but for their ability to resort to their defensive use of firearms.

Twenty years ago economist John Lott, author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” and his research partner wrote: “We find that allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons deters violent crimes and it appears to produce no increase in accidental deaths. If those states which did not have right-to-carry concealed gun provisions had adopted them in 1992, approximately 1,570 murders; 4,177 rapes; and over 60,000 aggravated assaults would have been avoided yearly.”

Did Lax Obama-Era School-Discipline Policies Enable the Parkland Shooter?

Broward County had adopted guidelines designed in part to limit law-enforcement involvement with students, even those who posed a threat.

The closer you look at the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., the more you realize that it might have been one of the most preventable significant crimes in recent American history. We’re familiar by now with the government’s sins of omission — how it failed to act time and again in the face of evidence that the shooter presented a clear and present danger to the public.

Too much theory in the gun control debate

During the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007, I recall hearing a radio interview with a student who was close to the shooter and was lucky to survive the shooting. I remember the young man sharing his frustration and saying something like this: I was forced by a gun-free zone to leave my gun in the car and felt hopeless watching a killer kill innocent people.

During the recent South Texas school shooting, we heard survivors say something similar: that a gun could have changed the story.

Unfortunately, too much of the gun control is all about theories — this gun vs. that gun, or whether this weapon looks like a military rifle or not. In other words, none of the “experts” talking on TV have ever been between a killer’s gun and their lives.

School safety: Beyond gun control

President Eisenhower was fond of saying that if you correctly define the problem, then you are 90% of the way toward finding the solution.

The left defines the problem as weapons in the hands of civilians. As always, leftists insist that the only solution is government (just pass a law, and the problem goes away). The right defines the problem as mentally ill people having weapons (so keep them away from lunatics). The correct definition of the problem is that society is threatened and vulnerable to many modern malevolent forces (insanity and Islamic extremism among them) intent on destruction via many weapon types. The solution is a threat-solution matrix and an improved, layered defense, not a single solution like banning semi-automatic rifles or truncating magazines.

One thing was apparent at the Florida school massacre: law enforcement failed us. We learned that the FBI tip line was being managed not by James Comey or Christopher Wray, but by Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther movies. If you think government or law enforcement alone is going to keep your school safe, think again, or you may die.

It would behoove school boards, administrators, principals, and police to structure their thinking holistically, so that they have a robust security plan.

. . .

And ask yourself: when a group of jihadis forgetfully neglect to take the firearms background check and attack the high school football game with belt-fed automatic heavy weapons, do you want to sprint to the trunk of your car and retrieve that muzzle-loading musket that Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) believes is sufficient, or would you prefer something…more substantial? Can you spell outgunned? If not, then don’t forget your ramrod.

‘Personality disorders’ and mass murder

Suzanne Venker points out that of CNN’s list of the “27 Deadliest Mass Shootings In U.S. History,” only one was raised by his biological father since childhood. The importance of a father is often overlooked.

Mark Meckler adds:

Fatherlessness is a serious problem. America’s boys have been under stress for decades. It’s not toxic masculinity hurting them, it’s the fact that when they come home there are no fathers there. Plain and simple. Add that to a bunch of horrible cultural trends telling them that everything bad is good (gang culture, drugs, misogyny, etc.), and we’ve got a serious problem on our hands.

The Cascading Failures of Government

In the case of the Parkland high school shooting, the cascade of failures began at the very top of government, with Barack Obama and his push to reduce the number of disruptive students sent into the “school-to-prison pipeline.” Like so many feel-good leftist initiatives, the unintended consequences of this Obama policy contributed to disaster.

…”Beginning in 2013, Broward stopped referring students to police for about a dozen infractions ranging from alcohol and drug use to bullying, harassment and assault. Instead, students who get in trouble for those infractions are offered an alternative program that emphasizes counseling, conflict resolution skills and referral to community social service agencies.” The article noted that Barack Obama hailed Broward County as a “national model” for his new initiative, having reduced arrests in Broward schools from 1,057 in the 2011-12 academic year to 392 in the 2015-16 academic year.

Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland killer, according to disciplinary records obtained by a local news station, was involved in an assault at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School on January 19, 2017 — more than a year before his shooting rampage. However, he was not arrested. Instead, he was subject to a “threat assessment” by the school district and removed from the school three weeks later.

According to CNN, citing law enforcement sources, Cruz purchased ten firearms in the past year. That would be the year after the January 2017 assault occurred. Had he been arrested and convicted for felony assault, those firearms purchases would presumably not have been possible, per federal gun law. Additionally, in January 2013, police were called to Cruz’s home when he assaulted his mother after she took away his Xbox at age 14. He was handcuffed and put in the back of a police car until he calmed down. Had he been charged in that incident, even with a misdemeanor, federal gun law would have prevented his purchasing firearms based on a misdemeanor domestic assault provision in the law.

Then you have Florida’s “Baker Act,” which allows for the involuntary examination and commitment to a mental health facility of persons whose behavior demonstrates potential harm to themselves or others. The act appeared designed specifically for people like Nikolas Cruz. Despite police notifications that Cruz was cutting himself in September 2016 and posting pictures of it to Snapchat, no effort was made to commit him. Involuntary commitment to a mental health facility would also have precluded his purchasing firearms.

Disarming 20-Year-Old Moms

If you are a 20-year-old single mom with a restraining order against your threatening ex-husband or ex-boyfriend, don’t expect Dick’s Sporting Goods to help you defend yourself and your child. Dick’s will no longer sell guns to such irresponsible and dangerous young people, even as we allow them to stop texting long enough to determine gun policy in orchestrated town hall meetings…

Throughout it all, schools have remained gun-free zones, periodically shot up by crazies we either did know or should have known about…

Expand background checks, they say. Then nobody feeds the relevant info on the crazies into the system. We see something, say something, and the authorities do nothing. But, hey, it is easier to blame the guns than, say, the FBI…

Keeping guns out of the hands of potential victims does not reduce gun violence. It does not protect our children or our wives and daughters.

The NRA Doesn’t Kill People, It Saves Lives. Just Ask My Family
Far from being monsters, or the new KKK, the National Rifle Association empowered my family to reclaim its sense of security.

Criminals who use firearms to carry out heinous acts of violence are the real enemy, not those who stand up for our constitutional right to bear arms, promote common-sense gun safety measures, and work daily with police, hunters and sportsmen. Period.

. . . 

In the early 1990s, a member of my family was robbed at knife and gunpoint while trying to earn a living at his small business. The experience changed my family’s perception of our own safety and security forever. After several days of reflection, this family member made a heartfelt decision: he needed to protect his life, property, and our family by purchasing a firearm.

Such a choice did not come easy, but was guided by a fundamental truth. As someone who had never before considered purchasing a gun, he knew the police would never come to his aid fast enough if an armed assailant tried to rob him again—possibly costing him his own life. He made what he felt was the best decision for his family and his own safety, just like many other hard-working, honest Americans across our country do every single day.

This is where the NRA came in. When he did make a firearms purchase, it was NRA-trained and -certified instructors who spent hours of their own time to teach him how to safely operate his preferred method of self-defense. They did not talk politics or try to indoctrinate him in any way, but did what they could to teach him how to safely and effectively defend himself if the moment ever came.

I Bought My First Gun Because Of The CNN Town Hall
This fight isn’t about gun control. This is an ideological battle between those who believe in liberty and responsibility and those who would trade responsibility for a false sense of security.

[Leftists] promise security for all in exchange for a little more, and eventually a lot more, power.

America is seeing this happen everywhere. Give up speech and no longer feel bad for offending others. Give up weapons and the government will protect you. Give up the ability to choose health care and the government will provide it for you. The tradeoff in each of these cases is the promise of some benefit in exchange for a loss of freedom in governing your own life.

The left wants the government to do more than secure our inalienable rights. Liberals want the government to secure things like economic security and free health care and a “proper” minimum wage. They want the government to guarantee emotional security, so girls are told they cannot tell a boy no to a dance. They want enforced psychological security, so people are forced to conform their speech so that liberals don’t have to suffer the hardship of words and labels they disagree with. And most fundamentally, they want the government to shield them from the burden of personal responsibility.

Parkland Shooting: Questions the Left Can’t Answer

The NRA contributed $1.1 million to candidates in the 2016 election cycle, according to Opensecrets.org. The left says the “Republican Party is owned by the NRA.” Is that so? One million isn’t that much – unless you believe that the Russians influenced the 2016 election by spending that amount on Twitter and Facebook ads. Is anyone asking about the really big money?

Fahr LLC, owned by left-wing climate warrior Tom Steyer, contributed $90 million in 2016. The American Federation of Teachers gave $31 million, and the National Education Association contributed $30 million. The NRA are a bunch of cheapskates in comparison. Which groups are really buying influence in Congress?

What has Big Education done for school safety, other than making schools “gun free zones,” turning them into target-rich environments? Not only are they not protecting their students, but they are also leaving their union dues-paying teachers vulnerable in school shootings. Why doesn’t Big Education care about teachers and students?

Why do these shootings almost always happen in “gun free zones”? Would a bank or jewelry store ever declare itself a “gun-free zone”? What about any government building in the country? Does this make sense?

If you want to know how to stop school shootings, ask the Secret Service

[W]hat often gets overlooked in the conversation is research on the subject that has already been done.

This research includes one major study of school shootings conducted in part by the very agency charged with protecting the president of the United States himself – the U.S. Secret Service.

Has this research been ignored or just forgotten? I raise the question as one who has studied averted school shootings and the news coverage that followed.

Two months after the Columbine tragedy in 1999, experts from the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Secret Service collaborated to study the “school shooter” phenomenon. They published the study on their findings in 2002. The study focused on examining the thinking, planning and other behaviors of students who carried out school attacks. Particular attention was given to identifying pre-attack behaviors and communications that might be detectable — or “knowable” — and could help prevent future attacks…

The case in Florida shows that many of these recommendations were followed and people spoke up when they saw something wrong. The issue is whether authorities need more power to intervene once they have been made aware of a potential threat, or whether they just need to do a better job with the power they already have.

Gun Control Misses the Point

Confiscation and mass disarmament are pipe dreams. There are better ways to improve school safety.

Civilians in America possess somewhere north of 300 million firearms, almost twice as many per capita as 50 years ago, and gun sales have continued to increase in recent years. Some amount of gun mayhem is probably inevitable in our society, and schools aren’t immune. The Second Amendment aside, forced confiscation or mass voluntary disarmament by law-abiding gun owners is a progressive pipe dream.

After the 2012 school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the building was razed; a new structure was built on the same site and opened in 2016. It features bullet-resistant windows, reinforced classroom walls, and doors that can be locked from both sides. More schools have installed panic buttons and security systems that include cameras and require visitors to be buzzed in by staff. Regular lockdown drills have also become common and probably saved lives last year after a gunman in Northern California killed five people and then headed for a nearby elementary school. He was thwarted by a lockdown procedure initiated by school officials who had heard the earlier gunshots.

Why Americans Have A Right To Own Guns Even If That Makes Us Less Safe
Our rights aren’t contingent on a cost-benefit analysis. Whether guns are risky isn’t the point, but whether guns are a reasonable means of self-defense.

Consider this: your right to life isn’t dependent on whether respecting your life would yield the best set of consequences. It is absolute and unrelenting, even if it would be more beneficial to others if your right were violated. It would be wrong for me to override your right to life in order harvest your organs to save five people, even if in doing so I produce a more beneficial outcome.

Your life has basic dignity that cannot be defeated in the name of social utility. It isn’t dependent on the outcome of a cost-benefit analysis. The same goes for other rights that are derived from the right to life. For example, it would be wrong to rape someone even if doing so would save ten lives. Rights function as moral “trump cards” that override appeals to utility.

We can think of the right of self-defense in similar terms. Since our right to life cannot be overridden in the name of social utility, and since the goal of self-defense is to protect one’s life, it stands to reason that our right to self-defense also cannot be overridden in the name of social utility. Like our right to life, our right to defend ourselves is a basic dignity that can’t be defeated just because it might produce a net benefit. We don’t run a cost-benefit analysis before we allow individuals to defend themselves.

Stalking an Active Shooter

During the recent shooting in Parkland, Florida, four Broward County sheriff’s deputies, including a school resource officer, allegedly waited to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while children were being murdered inside. If Sheriff Scott Israel’s investigation confirms that those officers failed to take action, they should be fired for abrogating their most sacred duty.

Police officers need to confront suspects immediately during an active shooter situation in a school or other public place. Ideally, there should be at least two officers present to clear even a single room. The search of a school is best done by a tactical team, but an active shooter is an exception to the rule. In exigent circumstances, when there is a serious risk of death or bodily injury to others, police need to respond immediately, even if that means searching with a less than optimal number of officers…

All active shooter incidents are exigencies, where even a lone officer needs to take action. When the attack is in a school, as in Parkland, the need for swift action is even greater. Children are among the most defenseless and vulnerable people in our society, and the main role of government is to stop citizens from using force against each other.

Editor’s note: This writer, a retired DEA supervisory special agent and a former Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy, goes on to relate an active shooter incident he was involved in.

The Parkland Massacre Debate Has Been Filled With Idiotically Inconsistent Arguments. Here Are Just A Few.

The Parkland shooting witnesses demonstrate that 16-year-olds have important things to say about public policy. They should vote.

It’s obvious that we must raise the age to purchase a weapon to 21-years-old, that children should stay on their parents’ health insurance until age 26, and that teenage criminals should be tried as juveniles.

Pick one…

The police response to the Parkland shooting demonstrates that a good guy with a gun cannot stop a bad guy with a gun.

Hand over your guns to the authorities, who will protect you from bad guys with guns.

Pick one…

More armed security at schools won’t make children safer.

No, we in the media won’t give up our armed security.

Pick one.

The public debate over public policy in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting has been gut-wrenching to watch. It’s been filled with dishonesty and posturing, with inconsistency and censoriousness. If we want to have a serious debate in this country, we’re going to have to stop participating in the emotion-driven screaming match to which we’ve been privy.

How Obama and Holder Changed Broward County Law Enforcement for Racial Reasons

[T]hen we learn that something like, what is it, 18 states don’t even report data to the background check system? So what good is it, if the data isn’t even there? If there were perps that are not being arrested, that are not being charged, they will not show up in a background check when they go to buy a gun. And there is or was an Obama administration policy to change this prison ratio under the guise that it was built by bias and racism.

Misguided Anti-Gun Assumptions
Unfortunately, virtually every suggested measure for improvement would produce little to no benefit, or actually make this a much more dangerous place.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz, the killer of the 17 victims at Stoneman Douglas High School, should have been identified by the NICS and prevented from purchasing the firearms used in the school slaughter. Police had been called to Cruz’s home 39 times in response to his assorted outbursts; he bragged on social media about killing helpless animals; he had been expelled from school for his out-of-control behavior; he joined radical, violent groups; and he posted on his Facebook account that he planned to be a “professional school shooter.” This was reported to the FBI, but none of this made its way to the NICS database.

In addition to Cruz, Adam Lanza in Newtown; Dylan Roof in Charlotte; Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood; Omar Mateen at Orlando; Devin Kelley at Sutherland Springs, Texas; Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold at Columbine; and others should have set off alarms but did not.

President Trump would serve this nation immeasurably by finally enforcing existing NICS laws to prevent yet another occurrence of such tragedies.

. . .

Almost all school or university shootings of the last couple decades have been committed by students or former students of those facilities. Many had longstanding, obvious psychological problems that went unaddressed or were absent from NICS review.

The Second Amendment does not give us the right to bear arms
The Second Amendment is an admonition to government that it may not take away your right to bear arms, which is inherent.

The problem I see is that if the right to bear arms is considered given to you by the Second Amendment, then that right is a product of the Constitution. If it is a product of the Constitution, then it is subject to interpretation by the “ultimate authority” over the Constitution, the Supreme Court, through the concept of judicial supremacy established by McCullough v. Maryland.

It does not help, in your author’s view, if we continue to propagate the myth that the Constitution confers upon us the right to bear arms. It is our inherent, inborn right to protect ourselves and our families, bequeathed to us from our forefathers’ blood and sacrifice in the many battles for liberty. It may not be legislated or interpreted away. It is not in the purview of the Supreme Court (or Congress, for that matter) to abolish the right to bear arms.

Is armed security at schools really unaffordable?

According to the U.S. Department of Education, for the years spanning 1950 to 2009, the number of K-12 public school students increased by 96%, while the number of teachers escalated by 252%, and the cadre of administrators and staff soared by 702%.

. . .

Whoever can’t find funding for highly trained armed security positions in their staff budget would never make it through third-grade arithmetic.  Teachers would remain free to teach, and security would be left to professionals.  With professionals covering the inside, law enforcement agencies might even find the will and the way to keep terrorists, whether foreign or home-grown, away from the schoolhouse doors.

Every Single Government Authority Failed In Parkland. And They Expect Americans To Forfeit Our Self-Defense Rights To Them?

So, here’s what we know. We know the FBI was warned specifically about the Parkland shooter not once, but twice — and did nothing. We know the Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home of the Parkland shooter at least 39 times since 2010.
We know that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office was warned multiple times about the Parkland shooter. We know that an armed officer was present during the shooting and did nothing — and that JROTC students showed far more courage.

And yet we are told that the solution to mass shootings is for law-abiding citizens to give more authority to the authorities that failed, and to turn over our only way of protecting ourselves?

One More for the NRA

The spectacle over the Florida school shooting proves the Left will exploit any tragedy, manipulate any victim, and demonize any detractor in their scorched-earth strategy to regain power. Further, its purported solution seeks to empower the public authorities who utterly and despicably failed to stop this massacre at every chance…

The ruling class cannot be trusted. The revelation yesterday that a deputy sheriff stood down while helpless teenagers were slaughtered by a disturbed young man goes beyond a dereliction of duty…

It reflects the lack of common decency pervasive among our protected institutions and their bureaucratic lackeys, whether they be positioned at the Department of Motor Vehicles, Veterans Administration hospitals, the top brass at the FBI, or in your local police force. In addition to their incompetence and inhumanity, we are further humiliated as they lie to us, place blame on others, and then get to “retire” with full benefits. (It’s only a matter of time before we find out Scot Peterson, the deputy who cowardly crouched outside Stoneman Douglas High School, listening to bullets and screams, will still get his taxpayer-funded pension and collect a sizable portion of his six-figure salary package.)

Failed Government Policies Result in School Mass Shootings

Devolution of family and morality, combined with forced government schooling, produce bad results.

What has changed within America over the decades? First, there has been an undeniable systemic disintegration of the American family — most notably, the devaluation of fatherhood and the nuclear family. Much of the fault for this disintegration lies with the government’s failed “Great Society” programs, which resulted in generations of poor Americans enslaved on urban poverty plantations in every major city nationwide. Those urban cesspools have fomented culture devolution.

[M]oral and cultural disintegration: Young people have been inundated with media violence. This is true of every school mass assailant. They are taught that there are no moral truths, and simultaneously saturated with violence, the staple of “entertainment industry” productions in every medium, and especially video games.

I Bought A Military Rifle At Age Nine. That Was Normal, And There Were No Mass Shootings
Everyone had guns, but there were no school shootings. No movie theater massacres. No mass casualties caused by deranged and angry teenagers. But how could this be?

So What Changed in the Last 60 Years?

Contrary to the usual gun control talking points, the basic killing potential of firearms hasn’t changed over the years. For example, in 1966, Charles Whitman, the so-called “Texas Tower Sniper,” used a low-capacity bolt-action rifle to kill 14 people and wound 31 others before he was killed by the police. This was the first widely publicized mass civilian casualty event, and it sent shockwaves throughout the country.

Despite the tremendous publicity, Whitman’s insane act spawned no copycats. It wasn’t until 1999 that the Columbine High School shooting started the series of regular albeit infrequent school killings. But why now are children slaughtering other children in our schools?

Could it be the widespread breakdown of the family? … The amount and graphic nature of violence in homicidal-themed video games, movies, television, and music lyrics have increased to previously unimaginable levels. … What about the number of children being medicated with psychotropic drugs? … What about the publicity given to the shooters?
