A student opened fire this morning at Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. (Caveat — details on these things are always sketchy this early.)
Fortunately, before he did more than wound two fellow students, including the female he was specifically targeting, the school resource officer fired back and stopped the threat, killing the assailant.
Obviously, having an armed officer on campus saved lives today — but only because he was willing to respond, unlike the Parkland, Florida, deputy.
Following the adolescent Second Amendment puppet protests last week, and ahead of this weekend’s March for Our Lives, it’s worth noting that the demands* of these students/leftist political props include two policies they oppose. One of them is this: “Any legislation that would aim to fortify our schools with more guns.”
Again, many students are alive today because the Maryland school was fortified with a gun.
Food for thought for any teens honest about saving lives instead of serving as pawns for the Left.
