If we step aside from our cynicism at a time like this, we can probably assume that everyone on the planet wants to see the end of mass shootings. The few that don’t are generally the sick bastards who are planning the next ones. While there are plenty of opportunists who are seizing the moment following such horrific events, I’d like to believe that even they would prefer to see the end of such attacks.

Many people have pointed to Israel as proof of how gun control should be. The Jewish state, that is otherwise an anathema to the left, has some pretty strict gun laws, making it a role model for us to consider, some argue.

Well, one Israeli writer, Tzvi Lev, thinks it’s proof of something, it’s just not what the anti-gun zealots would like.

Original article
When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, Israel did not declare every school a gun-free zone. It passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers and today runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.

If I remember correctly, it was 44 years ago that Israel began arming teachers in schools. Since that time there have been only two instances of gun violence in all the schools in Israel and both of those were stoped by a teacher in the school.

Now there you go clouding the issue with facts.

You should be ashamed of yourself. It's for the kids!!!
