Our Children Are the Targets Now

Right now. Right now as you read this some psychotic loner is firing up his video game and getting jazzed and feeling it his right to go out in a blaze of glory and be immortalized and is heading down to Walmart or any sporting good store and is buying an AR15 or an assault weapon and he is pulling up to a grade school and sitting in his car in his camouflage and body armor and he is  thinking about it. And now he has a model. Blast your way in past the locked door and head for the classrooms where the innocents are sitting, waiting. And there is nothing between him and our children.

So here is what we have to do. We have to get involved. We have to be the first line because our kids cannot defend themselves. In the worst case of Sandy Hook we have to take this as the new normal. Time is what we are after. We have to get rid of the assault weapons but we more than that we have to stop the killer before he reaches the kids. I think parents have to be the final measure now. We have to put ourselves between us and the killer. This will buy the time to save countless lives.

What am I talking about? Parents at the schools. Three parents would buy time. The killer comes in and three parents face him. At the least this sends out the warning and buys time, maybe stops the killer.  Or the parents split up and come at him from different directions. People will die but better than the kids. I don't see any other way. The days of PTO are over. It will happen again. You cant fill the school with cops but you could with parents. Three people in the killers way to slow him down at the front door and give the teachers precious time to lock down and hide kids and call police.

Crazy right? But what else can we do? Better to do something than nothing. Because its going to happen again. And if we save one child with a human shield. Isn't that better? You may think this is extreme, but there is a war going on and our kids are the targets.  Better us than them.
