The shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut had parents all over the country rushing to get their children home safe. I wonder how many parents thought for moment and figured out what part they had to play in this tragedy? Did these parents realise that agreeing and supporting a gun-free zone was inviting trouble for their children as such zones are the only choice of the disturbed and unbalanced. In no other place can they make their horrific statement to the world in complete safety and be provided with defenceless victims. A safety provided by well meaning but incredibly irresponsible management of schools, buildings and organisations. Management that does not bother to examine facts and make the best decision but instead allows emotional appeals and inducements to guide them. Parents have a responsibility to not only correct such bad decisions to guide any future decisions on their children’s safety while in the care of others. We must live in a crazy world when parents do not make the best effort they can to ensure their children’s safety and voice their objection to such irresponsible and foolish pandering to the lies of gun control.
