Why Aren't Armed Security Guards Available To Protect Elementary Schools Like Sandy Hook and Movie Theaters Nationwide, One Guy Would Make A Difference.
Why did mass murderers like Adam Lanza and James Holmes, both with high IQ's, both gamers and both loners, choose their targets and kill Innocent adults and children who they had no previous contact with. Was it the infusion of violent video games were you kill hundreds of your enemy and earn points that influenced goofballs Adam Lanza and James Holmes in their bizarre world. Why were their targets unprotected, don't we deserve to go to a movie or send our children to school and not have to worry about some crazed wack job shooting up the place?
Adam Lanza the unhinged gunman who slaughtered 26 children and adults at Sandy Hook elementary school arrived with guns blazing — blasting his way into the building, according to Connecticut State police. “He was not voluntarily let into the school at all,” Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance said at a Saturday morning press conference outside Sandy Hook Elementary School, where Adam Lanza unleashed one of the worst massacres in US history before committing suicide. “He forced his way into the school.”
Today, two of the Sandy Hook Elementary children were laid to rest, Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto, a New York Giants fan.
Adam Lanza — a string bean-thin goth kid described by friends as a “genius” — first shot his mother then drove to the school in her car with at least three of her guns: a Glock and a SIG Sauer, and a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle. And the gunman had access to even more guns than the trio found at the school — cops recovered a .45-caliber Henry repeating rifle, a .22-caliber Marlin rifle, and a .30-caliber Enfield rifle, a law enforcement source told CNN.
Why did mass murderer James Holmes pick the Cinemark theater in Auroura out of all the movie theaters within 20 minutes of his apartment showing the new Batman movie that night. It appears that the Cinemark theater in Auroura was the only one where guns were banned (legal concealed gun holders). In Colorado, individuals with permits can carry concealed handgun in most malls, stores, movie theaters, and restaurants.
But private businesses can determine whether permit holders can carry guns on their private property. Most movie theaters allow permit holders carrying guns. But the Cinemark movie theater was the only one with a sign posted at the theater’s entrance. They also did not have armed Security Guards at the entrance like many of the other surrounding theaters did. Madman James Holmes researched and did surveillance on the nearby movie theaters and found the Cinemark movie theater a easy target with no customers armed in the theater and no armed Securtiy Guards on the property, no one to fight back.
I have been a private detective for almost 20 years in Florida and I have seen a lot situations with waring divorced parents in confrontations in school parking lots which could have escalated to violence if not for a armed Security Guard, everybody in Florida has a gun.
Maybe they might want to rethink there choice: Aug 29, 2012 Norcross GA, When Tina Mack dropped off lunch to her son at Palmer Elementary School this morning, she wondered: What happened to the security guard? Her son, now in fourth grade, has attended Palmer since kindergarten. The school's had security every year until now. "This is honestly the first time I can say I don't feel safe sending him there," she said. Security guards at Cheston, Forks, Palmer, March, Shawnee, Tracy and Paxinosa elementary schools were eliminated as part of the Easton Area School District's layoffs for 2012-13. "We don't have security guards at the elementary schools any longer," board member Frank Pintabone said today. "Teachers are picking up that slack."....What the hell is this man thinking????
During the last couple of weeks I have taken an advanced firearms training course and also qualified for a Security Officer license under the supervision of Derek Jones. Over the years Derek Jones has received numerous certificates in criminal justice. The University of Florida is just one of the schools. In May of 2008 Derek traveled to Ontario, California to become a NRA Law Enforcement Certified Firearm Instructor in a course sponsored by the Ontario Police Department. He is proficient in criminal and investigation procedures, armed and unarmed security, firearms, weapons training and basic electronics.
Derek Jones passed on some of his wisdom to me, stating that the first line of defense for schools and movie theaters and malls and just about every other place where large groups of people and children congregate should be armed Security Guards with radios who could confront suspicious people and contact Law Enforcement immediately on the OUTSIDE of the building, before the perp gets into the building.
