Children are the bright lights of the world and their successes today shape our tomorrows. Every human life is precious. But there are some who are evil and cannot be rehabilitated. We have seen that time and again in cases like the school shootings cited above. So Mr. President and Congress; please pass a bill that makes it legal for a certified United States teacher to carry a firearm on their person so future school shootings can be averted. While it may not bring these tragedies to an end, it could certainly prevent more lives from being lost at the hands of such evil, like that which we saw in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday, December 14, 2012 and in previous school campus attacks.
For those who say this is not the way to go, consider your stance on this same issue if you were one of the parents who lost your child in the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack, Virginia Tech massacre, or the Columbine High School assault. I know it is a different situation if you have never lived through the horror. But, wouldn't you feel safer knowing your child were safer; that they had a fighting chance if their teachers were armed to protect them if evil visited their school building or college campus one day? I know I would.
I invite you to please sign this petition and ask President Barack Obama and the United States Congress to write, sign, and pass a bill, which will allow all certified teachers and their staff at all United States educational institutions, to be allowed to carry a firearm to protect their our children and themselves in the event that a evil like this is visited upon their lives.
The gun control debate must end right here and right now. Action must be taken today. Please sign this petition and take action right now.
