Second Amendment important now more than ever

Let’s pull all the police protection from Congress and put them in our schools, then see how long it takes them to change their attitude about guns in the hands of civilians.

If we license and train our school personnel to carry concealed weapons, the person who wants to harm them or the children will not know if they are armed or not. They will go to a place displaying a sign, “This is a gun-free zone.” This way they will know that no one will be shooting back.

The Second Amendment was not written into our Constitution so we would be able to have guns to hunt. It was put there to protect citizens from the government. It is important now, more than ever.
