Gunman Enters School to Cause Death and Destruction, Meets Good Guy With a Gun Instead

This guy made a huge error in judgment.

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.

Big mistake.

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.

Trump Steps Back From Insurrection Act, But Not Before Military Leaders Issue Strong Rebuke

Published

on

President Donald Trump has signaled that he is going to step back from threats he’s made concerning the deployment of federal troops to states that are refusing to use the military to quell riots and violent protests, but not before leaders in the military issued sharp rebukes for his position on the matter. Trump spoke with with former White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Newsmax TV Wednesday saying, “I don’t think we’ll have to,” referring, of course, to the invoking of the Insurrection Act, which would dispatch active-duty military troops on the streets to help reign in the current chaos. “We have very strong powers to do it. The National Guard is customary, and we have a very powerful National Guard, over 300,000 men and women, and we can do pretty much whatever we want as far as that,” the president said. “But as far as going beyond that, sure, if it was necessary.” via The Washington Examiner: On a leaked call Monday, Trump called governors “weak” and urged them, with the backing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, to call up more National Guard members to quell protests in response to the death of George Floyd in police custody. “If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” he said. Esper went on to say on Wednesday morning that the military lexicon was inappropriate. “I’ve always believed and continue to believe that the National Guard is best suited for performing domestic support to civil authorities in these situations,” Esper stated. “I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act.” The former National Guardsman…

Lindsey Graham Weighs In On Mattis Criticism of Trump, Says He’s ‘Buying Into A Narrative’

Published

on

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed in on some rather brutal comments made by former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about President Donald Trump, stating that he was “buying into a narrative” after slamming the president for his handling of the riots and protests in light of the death of George Floyd. Graham made an appearance on Fox & Friends where he said that Mattis isn’t understanding, despite the several years he spent serving in his administration, that Trump is the victim of a political blame game. “The one thing I would tell Gen. Mattis is that you don’t quite understand that from the time President Trump wakes up until he goes to bed, there’s an effort to destroy his presidency. … Nobody wants to send active-duty troops into American cities unless they are invited and unless they are absolutely necessary,” Graham said during the interview. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “But I would say that Gov. Cuomo should have called out the National Guard early on, and I would ask Gen. Mattis to look at the behavior of the politicians in these cities and see if you can find fault with them,” he said, referring to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “It is so fashionable to blame President Trump for every wrong in America, and he can be a handful, and can he do better? Yes. But the problems we have in America today weren’t caused by Donald Trump, and hopefully, he can help the nation heal some of these problems.” Mattis claimed that Trump was ordering the National Guard to “violate the constitutional rights of their fellow citizens” so that the president could have a “bizarre photo op” in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House on Monday. Trump responded to Mattis’s condemnation by tweeting,…
