Are Schools Safe and Growing Safer?

March 15, 2018

How safe are our schools? Are they growing safer or becoming more dangerous? You would think those simple questions would be well covered given the extensive media time we’ve devoted to the Parkland, Florida murders. You don’t know the answers because the media never told you. It is easier for the media to manipulate you if you are uninformed. It is easier for politicians to manipulate you. For a moment, let’s try to understand rather than inflame.

There is not a “epidemic” of mass murder in these United States, but you wouldn’t know it from watching the news. Schools are safe and becoming safer. If that surprises you, then be ready for this. The most destructive mass murder in recent history wasn’t in the United States. The most destructive mass murder in a school wasn’t in the US either. The most destructive mass murder in a US school involved neither a firearm nor was it committed by a young adult. On top of that, we already have 23 thousand firearms regulations in place..and they failed miserably in Florida. Those are significant facts that put the Parkland murders into context. You didn’t know those facts because you weren’t reminded of their significance.

The issue goes beyond facts and feelings. We need context to understand a story. That is the a critical question to ask yourself as you read the news.  “What is the context and the significance of a mass murder that killed 17 people in a public school.” That question is critical to you, but incidental to our so called “news media.” The MSM wants to keep you watching their show by frightening you every few seconds. They capture our eyes by playing on our anxiety.

The news media didn’t tell you what we’re already doing to make schools safer and what you can do to help. Let’s replace the mainstream horror movie with real facts. Watch this video if you want to know the truth about “gun free” schools.

Thank you for becoming informed rather than inflamed.

    I would like to share your article and video. Howver, the audio and video are not in sync throughout most of the video. The audio cuts out at several points also. Is there a version elsewhere where the audio and video might be in sync?
