With a nationwide effort now underway to disarm America’s gun owners because of the dangers firearms purportedly pose to the general public, namely our schoolchildren, the following report from Cypress Lake, Florida highlights how our government sponsored systems of justice have devolved into outright madness.
Consider what you’d do if you, a family or friend were under imminent threat of losing your life. Though there are those who believe that self defense is never an option, the majority of Americans – even some of the staunchest proponents of gun control – would agree that fighting back is sometimes the only option.
A 16-year old high school wrestler did exactly that when a gun wielding teen on his school bus threatened to kill another student at point blank range.
The wrestler took the drastic and last ditch measure of attacking the gun man, grappling with him, and subsequently disarming him.
What happened next only makes sense in a world where insanity is the new normal.
A 16-year-old Cypress Lake High School student, who wrestled a loaded revolver away from a teen threatening to shoot, is being punished.
The student grappled the gun away from the 15-year-old suspect on the bus ride home Tuesday after witnesses say he aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him.
The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
“No doubt,” the student said, “he was going to shoot him point blank.”
The teen we spoke to and authorities both confirm the Revolver was loaded.
According to the arrest report the suspect, who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor, was “pointing the gun directly” at another student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when the student we spoke with says he and others tackled the teen and wrestled away the gun.
The next day the school slapped him with a three day suspension.
According to the referral, he was suspended for being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present and given an “emergency suspension.”
“Those kids had to fight for their lives,” she said. “All the kids that was involved in this they should have a pat on their backs because they did the right thing to save someone from burying their child.”
When seconds counts, unarmed school administrators and teachers are minutes away:
This is akin to someone breaking into your home and threatening to kill your family while brandishing a weapon. The course of action that any sane person would take in such a situation would be to respond with deadly force and eliminate the threat. But what if after saving your life or those closest to you, you were prosecuted and imprisoned as an accessory to attempted murder?
That’s essentially what happened to the teens involved in disarming this gunman.
What happened to these high school students demonstrates the absolutely asinine system of rules that exist in America.
We could be mourning the deaths of numerous students today, but rather, these kids took their lives into their own hands.
They acted quickly and decisively to disarm a gun wielding maniac.
Their reward for saving countless lives was punishment.
What is the message we’re sending to kids in situations like this, or when they are being bullied and they have no choice but to respond with equal force? We’re telling them that protecting themselves is not justified – in any situation.
We’re teaching them that they should go ahead and let a gunman shoot them, or a bully beat them down, because zero tolerance policies matter more than common sense.
On the one hand we have school administrators, unions and politicians arguing that the gun violence must stop. When the eradication of the threat, however, comes from the actions of an individual as opposed to a benevolent government entity, those on the right side of the law are treated like criminals.
Would school administrators and the Department of Education have preferred an outcome like Sandy Hook Elementary? At least then they could have maximized the crisis for political gain.
