Rush Limbaugh calls for concealed carry in schools after Florida shooting

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called Sunday for concealed carrying of handguns in schools in order to combat mass shooters like the one that took place last week in Florida.

“If we are really serious of protecting the kids, we need a mechanism to be defensive,” Mr. Limbaugh said on “Fox News Sunday.”

He dismissed efforts by students who survived the Florida shooting to advocate for gun control by organizing marches in cities cross the country next month.

“I have to ask if anybody is really serious about solving this because none of this… is going to solve this. Prayers and condolences don’t solve it and marches aren’t going to solve it,” Mr. Limbaugh said.

His comments come after Cameron Kasky, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, announced the marches will take place March 24.

    Rush is right. We protect politicians with armed guards. We protect celebrities with armed guards. We protect millionaires and billionaires with armed guards. We protect jewelry stores with armed guards. We guard stadiums, concert venues, and other venues with armed security guards. yet we “protect” schools and our children, far more precious than ANY of the above, with signs that say “Gun Free School Zone”. These are every it as effective as the signs “Drug Free School Zone” have been,
    Following Rush they had an interview with Mark Kelly (Retired Navy Captain and astronaut, but forever referred to as “Gabby Gifford’s husband) who opined that a 19 year old was not mature enough to own a semi-automatic rifle. He pointed out that the 19 year old was too young to “drink a Bud Light” and would have to wait until he was 21 to own a hand gun. Botha re correct statements. However, this same 19 year old who is considered to young to buy a beer can enter the Military and be issued both the rifle and handgun, and be sent to combat. The 19 year old, considered too young to own a hand gun, is considered old enough and mature enough to vote for the politicians who make these laws. AND he is (appropriately) being charged as an adult for his crimes. If you can not be trusted to own a gun or drink responsibly, why are you old enough and mature enough to vote and go to war? This question was asked in the 60’s and 70’s when the voting age was lowered to 18, and they were considered mature enough. What have we done to our kids in that one generation?

    Once again it is proven that “gun free” zones = “KILL” zones. Licensed concealed carry persons are statistically safer than police.They are a free force multiplier for the police which increases the chance that a criminal will be stopped early in the commission of a crime. Most of those who do carry concealed will not hesitate to put their lives on the line to protect anyone in jeopardy.
