School shootings, school murders, and school killings in gun-free elementary, secondary schools, and colleges can be stopped.

Why do mass murderers go to our schools to kill? School shootings, school murders, and school killings in elementary schools, high schools, and colleges tend to have one common factor: these massacres all take place in a gun-free school. At the Columbine shootings, the Amish school shootings, Virginia Tech shootings, and at the Sandy Hook shootings, guns were not allowed by law, even with concealed carry. No Beretta, Smith and Wesson, Glock, Colt, Kel-Tec, Sig Sauer, Remington, Rock River Arms, Ruger, Taurus, Walther, AR-15, AK-47, or any other firearm was allowed by law to be in those gun-free schools, yet the killings still happened. This is because laws only prescribe penalties. They have no power to keep a weapon out of a school. The crazy shooter, the insane shooter, and the terrorists will not obey the law. They will take their semi-automatic pistol, their shotgun, or their high–powered rifle into any school they choose. These murderers will kill teachers, administrative personnel, school guards, students, and even elementary school children, and because of misguided laws there can be no one in the schools able to stop the killing. How do we protect our school children? The only way to stop active shooters in our schools is to allow good guns in schools, controlled by good people. These good people, the armed teachers, will be present and ready to stop a killer with immediate, overwhelming force, greatly reducing the dead and injured. Armed teachers are a great deterrent against a massacre even starting.
Peace and safety is needed for efficient student learning to take place. True peace and safety only exist when good, righteous people have the overwhelming power to stop a killer.
“How do we protect the children?” is the question Safe Schools Now answers as it provides a reasoned call to sanity on the issue of arming public school teachers. In this book you will learn…

-Why the police can’t protect our school children.
-Why an armed guard may not be sufficient.
-What is more dangerous to your kids than a lone killer?
-Can teachers be trusted to carry a loaded firearm in the classroom?
-What history and nature point to as the solution to our school-security problem?
-How do we as citizens make changes to assure the safest schools possible?

Safe Schools Now includes a list of school massacres, data on the number of shootings worldwide, and dramatic short stories illustrating how dangerous our schools are for our children. This book is necessary reading for every parent, teacher, school board member, and politician in America.
