Media Mocks Texas Lt. Gov for His Comments on School Shootings. Here’s Why He’s Right.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

Mainstream news outlets and gun control advocates were quick to criticize Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick over his comments that the construction of the school in Santa Fe in which a 17-year-old gunman opened fire on Friday, killing 10, may have worsened the outcome.

What they didn’t understand was that he was actually right–the floorplans and exit and entrance strategies to any given building is the difference between a soft target and a hard target. There’s one problem: these critics simply have so little of an understanding of strategies for tactical defense, they couldn’t even recognize the language he was using.

“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” he said Sunday, according to a CNN article oh-so-objectively titled Texas official blames school shooting on too many exits and entrances. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”

“We need to get down to one or two entrances into our schools,” Patrick said again on Sunday. “You have the necessary exits for fire, of course, but we have to funnel our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them.”

CNN, in their boldfaced and shameless bias turned this into: “Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on ‘too many entrances and too many exits’ on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as ‘”door control.'”

It’s unclear, if anyone other than CNN “mocked” Patrick for this, but they were in good, left-leaning, gun-grabbing company:

Dana Loesch on her radio program Monday said those mocking Patrick, however, are nothing more than “tactical keyboard warriors” on Twitter and know nothing of the plain security knowledge Patrick is displaying.

“Dan Patrick was mocked because he talked about something that the people mocking him didn’t understand. They don’t understand what it takes to secure something like a school,” she said. “Dan Patrick was absolutely right.”

She also referenced veteran J.R. Salzman who corrected Patrick’s critics by explaining “he’s talking about secure entrances. My kid’s school only has one entrance to get in and you have to be buzzed in by the front desk. That’s what he’s talking about. Controlling access, establishing a secure perimeter.”

This is very basic security lingo, and yet those who are most adamant about your Second Amendment rights being destroyed are the least knowledgeable in the issues they claim the most to know about: mass shootings, and keeping our children safe.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

‘National Teacher Of The Year’ Makes Call For Violence Against McConnell

Published

A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell. According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.” The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung. Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.” https://twitter.com/KyleKashuv/status/1344435826688745474 via Daily Wire: Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.” Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.” When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
