Brave Students Acted to Prevent School Shooting
There have been a number of scary situations unfold just in the past few months. You’ll recall that there was the school shooting just last month, but sadly that’s not the only school shooting that we’ve had recently.
There was also another one just a few months ago when a kid who like this most recent shooting was bullied in school and in fact, they released a video that showed the kid getting into a fight shortly before the shooting took place.
Those on the left want to cry out that we need stricter gun control but that’s not really the matter here. That’s not really the true issue. There are other things that come into play and it’s not the gun’s fault it’s the shooter’s fault.
Too often liberals want to blame somebody else besides those who are actually responsible. That’s not to say that they don’t believe that what the shooter did was wrong it’s just that they look for an opportunity to push their propaganda more.
What happened in both of these situations? The kids were bullied in school. Bullying today isn’t even the same as it was 50 or 60 years ago. That doesn’t mean that bullying was okay 50 or 60 years ago it just means that we live in a completely different world now. Bullying is much harsher than it was back then but still, it shouldn’t even take place. And do you want to know the best way that you can prevent your child from being bullied at school? Don’t send them to public school.
Well, there was another potential mass shooting at a school that was recently avoided thanks to the actions of a couple of students.
Two students picked up threatening messages on the Snapchat social media platform and notified authorities.
“He said once he was done at that firing range, he was going to campus to enact a Columbine,” Chief Jakari Young said.
Young said they got incredibly lucky after two students shared concerns about threatening statements from fellow student John Hagins, reported them to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University campus safety, who alerted Daytona Beach police.
Hagins was tracked to his off-campus apartment complex, where police detained him as he walked out. Inside a backpack, he was allegedly carrying an arsenal.
“He was going to leave from his apartment. He was headed over to Volusia Top Gun for practice, and then he was going to head to Embry-Riddle,” Young said.
Police said the suspect had a collapsible semi-automatic rifle fitted in the backpack, along with plenty of ammunition, six magazines, one that holds 32 9-millimeter bullets, a scope and ear protection.
“He was loaded. He was prepared,” Young said.
Thankfully, this was stopped before anything could happen. But it is still scary and you never know where or when it could happen. Again, this is a very strong reason to homeschool your children. It is a means of protecting them because if you think it can’t happen at your child’s school, it can.
