Tragically, it has happened again. A mentally deranged woman (who called herself a man) walked into a private Christian church-school and killed three nine-year-old children (one of whom was the church pastor’s daughter) and three adult school employees. And once again, the shootings took place in a gun-free zone.
The attack ended when two police officers arrived and immediately rushed to the sound of the gunfire and killed the murderer. (I wonder if the police department in Uvalde, Texas, was taking notes.)
The authorities in Nashville, Tennessee have identified the person who killed three students and three teachers at the Covenant School on Monday morning as Audrey Hale. The 28-year-old was said to have been a former student at the Christian elementary school, and identified as a transgender man.
Initial reports spoke of a “teenage woman” as the attacker, who was fatally shot by the responding officers. Police Chief John Drake told reporters that Hale was armed with two rifles and a handgun, and opened fire after using a side entrance.
During a search of Hale’s home, police discovered a plan of attack on the school. Another location, which police did not identify, was also considered as a potential target, until Hale decided the security presence was too strong.
The school is run by the Covenant Presbyterian Church, and serves children ages 6-12. It has more than 200 students and 40 staff.
The report above from an overseas media outlet is one of the only early reports on the shooting that accurately identified the shooter as a “transgender man.” Every early U.S. news report that I read about the tragedy conveniently left out the fact that the shooter was a transgender.
The audacious deception and blatant left-wing bias of the U.S. news media is so ubiquitous that any rational, sane person can see that the media is nothing more than a ministry of propaganda for all things “woke” and Big Government.
When are State lawmakers around the country going to end their complicity with school violence and remove State laws that prohibit school personnel from being armed?
Did you notice this section of the news report above:
Another location, which police did not identify, was also considered as a potential target, until Hale decided the security presence was too strong. [Emphasis added]
So, the people in the other location were spared, because it contained a strong “security presence,” which no doubt included armed personnel.
This is not difficult.
Each of these mass shooters chooses the location of their murderous mischief in a deliberate, calculating manner, making sure that the targeted venue is gun-free. Duh!
Interestingly enough, I discussed this very subject in my column last week. In that column, I quoted Thomas Jefferson, which, with the tragic event in Nashville this week, is fitting that I quote him again:
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
There is another glaring element to the Nashville shooting: Why is no one calling this a “hate” crime?
Turn the event around. Imagine the shooter was a member of a Protestant Christian church or school and the victims were all transgender. Every media outlet in the country would be calling the shooting a “hate” crime. You and I both know it!
But since the murderer was a transgender man and the victims were all part of a Protestant Christian church-school, there is not a peep—not a peep from anyone—about this being a “hate” crime.
Once again, the hypocrisy, duplicity and bias of the mainstream media are on full display for all to see.
It is time for the American people to demand that their State lawmakers remove the prohibitions against school personnel being armed. Gun-free zones—especially schools—are killing fields for any crazy criminal with a gun—and criminals will always be armed. Criminals don’t care about laws and don’t obey laws. Duh!
As Jefferson said, “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.”
Parents of school children—no matter what kind of school it is—need to demand en masse that the school have armed personnel in every classroom or remove their children from the school.
And I mean post-haste!
How can parents continue to casually send their precious little children to these defenseless killing fields called schools?
America, arm your schools NOW!
P.S. I want to take the liberty of urging my readers to watch my message this Sunday at Liberty Fellowship. The message is entitled Satan’s Attack Against These New Covenant Prophecy Messages.
Satan and his minions hate Christ’s New Covenant, and I am a personal witness to this fact. The message this Sunday is my personal story. In fact, it is only by God’s hand of protection upon my life that I am even here to tell the story.
The livestream will begin at approximately 2:30pm THIS SUNDAY, April 2.
Again, the title of the message is Satan’s Attack Against These New Covenant Messages.
The title of this message, coupled with the name of the church-school attacked in Nashville this week, Covenant Presbyterian Church, sends chills up my spine.
