Rand: Shooters Aren’t Shooting Up the Sheriff’s Office – They Go ‘Where There Is No Self-Defense’
*** begin quote ***
During an interview with the Fox News Channel on Friday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) argued that schools can’t be defenseless and disturbed shooters “aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.”
Rand said, “I think the first thing we should do is, there needs to be an announcement by every school district that we’re going to defend our children, and that we’re not going to have a sign outside that [says], ‘We’re defenseless.’ And I think that’s the problem, is that we do have these homicidal or crazy or mentally disturbed kids, but they still aren’t so disturbed that they’re going to shoot up the sheriff’s office. They’re showing up where there is no self-defense.”
He added, “I think we get distracted. We start talking about something that Republicans and Democrats disagree with on gun control. … Look, every Hollywood actor that hates guns has armed bodyguards defending them. So, they hate guns unless the guns are defending them. Let’s announce tomorrow and let’s encourage everybody who protects our kids, superintendents, principals, school boards, announce tomorrow we’re not going to leave our kids defenseless. We are going to defend our schools from crazy people with guns.”
Rand also argued that we need to try to stop people who have psychiatric disorders that cause them to act violently and prevent people who are crazy from getting firearms. He further said there isn’t enough work being done to keep people who are mentally unstable or breaking the law from having guns.

So sad. No mass shooting at gun shows, gun clubs, police stations, and such. It’s all about sprinkling some sheepdogs in among the sheep.
Criminals don’t follow laws.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want guns in the hands of untrained people. But if you’re a committed gun owner, I trust you to do the right thing. More so than leaving people as “cannon fodder”. If I was carrying concealed and wasn’t sure I could “safely” make the shot, I wouldn’t, and I am sure every other gun owner, would not even try. When people are dying, they deserve all the protection that we gun owners can give them.
Will it stop every shooting, probably not. Will it make these crazy people think twice, quite probably. They may be crazy but they are not stupid.

“I particularly like unlimited concealed carry. If the criminal regards the general public as sheep to be shorn, then let’s sprinkle in a few “sheepdogs” with big teeth in the flock.
Guess which gay to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Pink Pistol and you’re dead!
Guess which woman to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Paxton Quigly and you’re dead!
Guess which brown person to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Massad Ayoob and you’re dead!”
