Another school shooting took place this week, this time in the state of Illinois, however, this one had a much different ending compared to what we are used to hearing.
A 19-year-old former Dixon High School student from Dixon, Illinois entered the gymnasium where seniors were having graduation practice, and then fired on an armed resource officer.
“A 19-year-old former Dixon High student is in custody with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the shoulder after bringing a gun to the school this morning,” Sauk Valley reports.
According to Sheriff John Simonton, school resource officer Mark Dallas confronted the shooter in the high school gym, where the students were gathered for graduation practice, at around 8 a.m., and returned fire after being fired upon.
“The officer was not injured, nor was anyone else,” said City Administrator Danny Langloss, whose daughter was one of the seniors gathered in the gym.
“The shooting happened in the gym, where seniors, whose last day of school was Friday, were gathered for graduation practice,” said Langloss. “We’re lucky the officer was there. His brave actions saved a lot of lives.”
Sauk Valley reports that Dixon Police believe that “the suspect acted alone and that there is no further threat to the safety of students or staff.”
You probably won’t see this story covered too much on news networks like CNN, as it flies in the face of their anti-gun narrative.
After all, they are the ones who refuse to support armed guards in schools, saying good guys with guns don’t stop shootings. They will attempt to support their argument by pointing to the cowardice of the resource officer and other law enforcement professionals in the Parkland, Florida shooting, but that’s hardly the norm.
In fact, most police officers are more like Dallas, willing to give their lives and take quick, decisive action to stop a maniac from hurting kids.
School shootings aren’t the result of the Second Amendment, contrary to what liberals want you to believe. If that was the root cause, why is there no significant history of these incidents until recently?
No, the problem here is cultural. Kids are angry, confused, abandoned by a society that has rejected the traditional family unit, which was designed to provide for their need of structure.
It’s not the Second Amendment that needs changing, it’s our culture.
Until we admit that what we are doing now isn’t working and return to foundational principles of reality, this is only going to get worse.
