You can watch this short film here -> http://blogs.channel...un-lovers/23658
Watching the video, I have to admit, I completely understand how those teachers feel.. The physics teacher looked as though she was choked up.. These people show compassion for their students safety, so I can certainly see why teachers want to fight back
If you watch the video, a man who was training the teachers ( Johnny Price ) made a good point ..When asked does it scare him to know that the bad guys and the good guys who have guns, Johnny had this to say - "God made us all different sizes and frames, strengths, weaknesses, ages, Sam Colt made us equal" .
The best part of this film is the man ( named Vic ) in the trailer park, who happened to be in the right place at the right time ...He heard gun shots, he saw a woman laying in a pool of blood.. The cop had showed up, only to be pinned down by the shooter..The man thought, this guy hasn't got a chance.. For the first time in his life, Vic had to use his gun to take out the shooter... Because Vic took out the shooter, he saved the life of the cop, and the rest of the trailer park residents
The video in my opinion was very helpful and it allowed me to see that these good guys with their guns can in fact do more good to save their own lives and the lives of others around them.. As the British news reporter says - A good guy with a gun had stopped the bad guy with a gun... This indeed is most true..
What I feel needs to be looked at is - The fact that these Americans have grown up with guns all their lives, and I know Obama is not taking away their guns, because gun control does not mean anti gun.. In saying that, I feel these good people need to protect themselves......I would want to do it if I lived in a place like that..
