Victims in Newtown, Connecticut
Armed4Battle joins our country in mourning over the recent school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. Since this kind of tragedy begun on January 17, 1989 when Patrick Purdy killed five school children, wounded 29 others and a teacher before killing himself at Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, California, it does not appear that these tragic events will leave us any time soon. Sandy Hook Elementary School will be forever remembered as yet another school that suffered from the hands of a crazed gunman, Adam Lanza. He killed 28 people, eight were adults and the rest were little children.
As President Obama stated, “Our hearts are broken.” There were so many innocent lives cut short. So much potential, so many happy memories that will never be made and so much grieving that is still yet to happen. These children were sweet, innocent and brought so much joy to their parents and loved ones. The adults who gave their lives were exemplary role models who made the ultimate sacrifice in an attempt to minimize the damage and prevent further needless killings.

In Mourning For Those Who Died in the
Connecticut School Shootings
Today, Armed4Battle takes time to honor the innocent and the heroes who gave their lives with reckless abandon and total disregard for their own well-being. The New King James Bible states in John 15:13 that “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” This is, clearly, the heart of the Gospel and what Jesus Christ modeled to all of humanity when He willfully laid down His life for the sins of the world.
Reports are coming out that this terrorist gunman was mentally ill. I can’t help but ask, “What kinds of psychiatric help was this man offered and did he receive it for his condition?” What did his parents do throughout his life to get him help? How did he respond to that help? My understanding is that this man had a personality disorder. Somewhere along the way, something went terribly wrong. The gunman, Adam Lanza, either had a break with reality or chose to channel his anger in a very violent way. Whatever the case, the fact remains that another gunman succeeded in penetrating one of our most sacred instituitions that house our school children–our public schools.

I can’t help but ask, why is more not done to protect our school children? Why do schools get hit so hard with budget cuts year after year? The time has come when we have to consider putting policemen at our schools not just with their standard weaponry, but with military-style rifles so they have a good chance at succeeding in killing any potential terrorists who dare try to take away our #1 greatest natural resource: our precious children. How many more children will have to die before we do something radical to stop these radical, merciless, crazed killers?
Once a killer penetrates a school campus, our children and educators are at the mercy of these terrorists. By the time the police are contacted, it’s too late. The damage by then has been done. Dead bodies lay everywhere. When the cavalry arrives, it’s too little, too late. Nothing can be done to bring back these precious lives. The only way to ensure that our children will have a chance to survive such a crisis is to man our schools with extraordinary policemen who are gifted sharp-shooters, expert marksmen, proven snipers. Only then, will our children have a fighting chance.
I hope our congressmen are listening. Perhaps a law needs to be passed for this to happen. These killers need to be cut down in shreds before they have an opportunity to kill again. They need to be treated for what they really are: the enemy, terrorists who deserve no mercy. I believe they would think twice before carrying out their personal vendettas, if such changes were made. Our children are worth it. Times have changed. We are no longer safe. It’s time to empower our police officers–to make them Armed4Battle so they can be given authority to do what they are trained to do: to protect innocent lives and to kill the enemy.

By Manning Our Schools With Police Snipers!
Since we will always have to deal with terrorists, we need to make changes now and adapt to the times. I know that Armed4Battle’s recommendation sounds harsh and extreme, but too many lives have already been lost, too many parents have had to bury their children, too many loved ones have had to bury educators. Let’s give our policemen a fighting chance so they can rightfully kill these terrorists. Since that’s the only language that these terrorist cowards understand, maybe they will think twice before they choose to meet their Maker.
I’d like to end in a word of prayer: “Father, I pray for all the families who have to bury their loved ones. Comfort them in their grief, hold them in the palm of Your hands, let them know that the sun will shine again and that their loved ones did not die in vain. Thank You, Lord, for receiving all of these precious children and adults into Your loving presence. Romans 12:15 declares, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.” We join our brothers and sisters in mourning right now, Lord, but we thank You that Psalm 30:5 declares that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen. I pray Jesus‘ blessings on all of my Armed4Battle friends!
