On March 27, 2023, we had yet another school shooting which killed three 9-year-old children and three adult staff members.  No amount of words can ease the pain and suffering for the family and friends of those innocent lives lost.  I’m a mother.  My daughter is 48 and Dept. Head of Mathematics at one of the largest school districts in the metro city where she lives.

There were no school shootings when she was growing up (I kept her in private Christian schools), but Satan’s Pimps hadn’t yet begun the big push for their agenda:  Completely erase the Second Amendment.  Only police and criminals would then have guns.

We know the Nashville killer was a biological female pretending to be male.  Audrey Hale, 28, “identified” as a male commonly called a transgender.  There is no such thing as a transgender:  You Can’t Eradicate “Transgender” People — Because They Don’t Exist, March 8, 2023

“Oh, “transgenderism,” which is a political and social movement, certainly exists.  What should be called sexual identity disorder also exists.  And people masquerading as the opposite sex exist.

“But no one is “transgender” because humans don’t have “gender” (words do) but the quality called “sex” — and you can’t transition from one sex to the other.”

No amount of “support” from doctors (hormone treatment) and surgeons making big bux mutilating boys and girls, school personnel, special interest groups or Hollywood nitwits can change the fact there are only two sexes, male or female.  What they’re doing is ignoring the issue of mental illness and confusion – especially for children and teens.  A person can “identify” as a tree if they want but it doesn’t make them grow limbs and shed leaves.

Gamers, parents shocked after popular kids video game promotes new transgender ‘top surgery scar’ update, Feb. 1, 2023 – “The popular Twitter account “Libs of TikTok,” shared the update with its over 1.8 million followers.  “They’re teaching young healthy girls that it’s ok to chop off their breasts.”

From my May 23, 2016 column:

Princeton Prof: Transgenderism Not Scientific, ‘Superstitious Belief’ – Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton. “A noted Princeton University professor has attacked the very notion of transgenderism, saying that the belief “that a woman can be trapped inside a man’s body” is ludicrous and superstitious, with no basis in medical fact.”

American College of Pediatricians: Gender Ideology Harms Children

“No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one. No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward. People who identify as “feeling like the opposite sex” or “somewhere in between” do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women. 2,3,4

“A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).5 The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved. 2,4,5”

Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’ – very important read. “Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

“Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

“He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

Ms. Hale owned seven guns purchased legally from five different gun stores.  Hale was being treated for an emotional disorder.  The manifesto she left behind will no doubt be released to the public at some future date.  Has anyone else noticed these so-called transgender individuals have gotten more violent and hateful over the past few years?  The Science Is Settled: Trans People Undergoing Female to Male Testosterone Injections Experience Increased Rage and Aggression  // “F** You!” Trans Individuals Launch Violent, Bloody Assault on Canadian Conservative Activist During Rally (VIDEO), April 1, 2023

Trans and Antifa Activists Protest at Michigan Capitol Days after Nashville Slaughter, Demand More “Direct Action //  Another Insurrection! Trans Activists Invade Florida State Capitol Chanting “Whose Schools, Our Schools!” – Outraged Over Legislators Voting to Protect Children (VIDEO) 

There was a time when families were mother and father regardless of race or ethnic origin.  Fast forward to the destruction of the family, massive number of children born out of wed lock, churches of every denomination abandoning their flocks to protect their 501-C (3) tax exempt status.  Dopers or drunks for “parents”, forcing children to accept sexual deviants (homosexuals, lesbians, bi-sexual) as normal, natural and “healthy”, and now the “trans” CULT – is it any wonder so many have mental health issues and tragically, suicides rates are so high?

So-called ‘trans’ communities accuse people like me of hate which simply isn’t true.  Personally, I feel great pity and compassion for them.  Brainwashing is a powerful weapon.  But for the ‘trans’ people, their hatred of anyone who disagrees with their demands has become like red-hot lava after a volcano erupts.  Well, here’s a news flash for all of you:

Demand all you want but you don’t get special rights nor will we allow males who “identify” as female into girl’s locker rooms and bathrooms.  Schools can accommodate mentally confused students with a separate bathroom for your scientifically debunked 79 different genders.

Of course we never hear about the rapidly growing “de-transitioning” groups and organizations here in the U.S. and other countries.  Teens, young adults and even adults in their 50’s who deeply regret getting mutilated and sterilized.

‘I literally lost organs:’ Why detransitioned teens regret changing genders, Jan. 18, 2022 – “Now 17, Chloe is one of a growing cohort called “detransitioners” — those who seek to reverse a gender transition, often after realizing they actually do identify with their biological sex. Tragically, many will struggle for the rest of their lives with the irreversible medical consequences of a decision they made as minors.”

Rate of detransition among ‘trans’ youth higher than activists claim, Dec. 13, 2022 – “Zacchigna is one of a rapidly growing number of young people who are speaking out about the harm gender-affirming care did to them. The Detrans Subreddit now has over 40,000 members, and malpractice lawsuits are starting to bring an end to what one pediatric neurosurgeon recently called “an extraordinary medical atrocity.”

New York pediatric neurosurgeon speaks out against sex changes for kids, Nov. 2, 2022 – In an interview with The Federalist, Dr. Michael Egnor, a pediatric neurosurgeon and professor at the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University in New York, called the advice parents are being given regarding so-called gender-affirming treatments “basically criminal.”

Assault:  “An unlawful physical attack upon another; an attempt or offer to do violence to another, with or without battery, as by holding a stone or club in a threatening manner.

This can be used to assault or kill someone:

New Jersey man who killed wife with frying pan gets 30 years in prison  //  Wife Kills Husband With Frying Pan // Bozeman man sentenced to 105 years in prison for murdering wife with frying pan

This is can be used to assault or kill someone:

Texas Woman Bludgeons Husband With Baseball Bat, Stages Murder As Hit-And-Run // Garner woman beat her husband to death with a metal baseball bat, police say  //  Minnesota man accused of beating ‘mean’ wife to death with baseball bat // Las Vegas man accused of killing wife with baseball bat

AK-47:  Avtomat Kalashnikova.  It is a rifle that expends bullets at high speed; a semi-automatic rifle.  AR-15.  Same.  Just like a frying pan or baseball bat, they are inanimate objects.  Yes, they all can be used to assault and/or kill someone.  But, they cannot simply and magically act without a human being controlling them.  AK-47’s and AR-15’s are rifles, not assault rifles.

Oh, and by the way:  Surveillance Footage Shows Nashville Shooter Used a Carbine Which Fires Pistol Rounds, Not an AR-15, March 29, 2023 – See it with your own eyes.  The View should be renamed The Imbecile Hour.  Whoopi Goldberg goes off on AR-15s, calls for ban of ‘that damn rifle’

But such logic escapes Second Amendment haters.  Their emotions explode when one attempts to reason with facts.  Not that the cadaver imposter president, Joe Biden, has any but he upchucks what he’s told to say with as much zeal as he can muster:  Biden Admin Won’t Rule Out Gun Confiscation; Calls Americans Owning AR-15s ‘Unacceptable’

Following the horrible Nashville shooting, predictably, out come all the Second Amendment haters.  Ban assault weapons!!!   Same old using a tragedy to advance an agenda.  Yes, people should be upset schools haven’t done more to make campuses safe with all the mentally ill running around.

The screaming for Congress to enact more unconstitutional, worthless gun laws was at a fever pitch last week.  WATCH: Protesters Storm Tennessee Legislative Chambers, Screaming for Gun Control

The usual inane garbage flowed from the mouths of professional politicians.  Good for campaign donations.  Elizabeth Warren on Nashville Shooting: ‘Our Children Die’ Because of Republicans

UNHINGED Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman SCREAMS at Republicans as They Leave House Chamber — Rep. Thomas Massie Confronts Him with Facts and Bowman Loses His Mind, March 30, 2023 (My comment:  Hard to lose something you never had.)

Democrats want your guns.  They’ve turned ALL of our cities into violent sh*tholes and now they want YOU to give up your only protection!

“These people are just crazy.  Representative Jamaal Bowman of New York screamed at Republican lawmakers as they exited the Capitol building on Wednesday evening.  Rep. Bowman was captured on video screaming “They’re cowards! They’re all cowards. They won’t do anything to save the lives of our children at all. Cowards.”

From the woman who helped Biden get away with stealing the 2020 election:  Sen. Blackburn Introducing Legislation to Hire Officers to Harden Schools.  Here’s a clue for you, Marsha:  Congress HAS NO LEGISLATIVE AUTHORITY to fund what school districts do to beef up security.  Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly defines those areas and those areas only where Congress can legislate and fund.

Apparently “Senator” Ted Cruz hasn’t read that section of the Constitution, either.  Cruz infuriated by Dems’ move that killed more school security, April 1, 2023 – “Last year, I filed legislation to substantially enhance the physical security of schools & to double the number of police officers in schools. Dems blocked it with ZERO justification. I cannot tell you how angry I am about this! Senate Dems weren’t willing to do what it takes.”

Sounds good, but…read the Tenth Amendment, Ted.  Well, it’s good for campaign donations in 2024.

I covered this before in a column.  After my late husband passed away, I became a part-time substitute teacher in 2017 as the district was begging for substitutes.  When they implemented the worthless, dangerous face mask mandates, I never went back.  But, oh, I think, 2018 at the start of the school year, I walk to the front doors of the high school and there’s this HUGE sign:  Our Staff and Teachers are armed and will use lethal force to protect students, teachers and staff.

That sign is in front of every school in our school district from elementary to high school.  Prior to that, the doors were open, anyone could walk in.  No more.  ALL doors are locked except the front door and you must show your pass to the camera to get inside.  Anyone coming to the front door will know they will be killed if necessary should they decide to bring a gun into the school.

Up until the mid-1960’s kids brought their rifles to school where they were kept in the principal’s office until time for some target practice after school.  You could purchase firearms through the mail.  Kids were taught to respect guns and safety.

Back in maybe 2003, 2004, I was invited to speak at the state Capitol in Sacramento where we lived at the time.  Second Amendment haters were holding a huge rally of mothers against guns.  We all want to see children protected from gun violence despite flame-throwing rhetoric to the contrary.  Up the street came a mob of angry mothers led by the “progressive” mayor as I was giving my speech – as Patrick Henry!

Not many people know Patrick Henry filibustered for 33 days to get the Second Amendment included in the Bill of Rights.  He refused to back down.

As I was speaking a group of Second Amendment supporters went over to the other side of the capitol where the Mom’s March was being held.  They offered yard signs to all of them:  GUN FREE ZONE.  Guess what?  Not one of those mothers took one to put in their front yard.  In fact, those women had hissy fits you wouldn’t believe.

School districts can do what ours has done. Get teachers and staff who volunteer to pass an arms proficiency test and provide them with weapons.  Schools can allocate funds to keep one or two armed guards on campus during school hours with help from state budgets.  Lock down the campus.  Everyone must have ID to get in the building.  Yes, I’m aware the Nashville killer broke the windows on one of the doors to enter.  Had staff and teachers been armed, she would have been taken out a lot sooner.  Many teachers and staff on school campuses across the country are former military or police and know how to shoot.

Unlike the cowards who responded to the school shooting in Uvalde, TX last year and allowed the slaughter to continue.  Thank God Nashville Police officers responded within a few minutes.  Well trained, focused even though they put their lives in danger.  With precision they cleared the rooms, went upstairs and sent Hale to Hell.  It was over in less than six minutes.

I also think all school districts should hold a parents town hall meeting in the cafeteria, auditorium or whatever room holds the most people and talk to parents about gun safety.  Hold two if necessary to accommodate numbers and parent’s schedules.  Talk to parents about warning signs regarding the mental health issue.  Remind parents guns – regardless of hand guns or rifles – are inanimate objects.  It’s people who use them to injure and kill.  Give parents facts:  New FBI Report Shows Armed Citizens STOP Mass Shootings, May 24, 2022

The same should be for students.  Get them at the junior high level into an auditorium and talk to them about warning signs from a student.  If they see something on social media where a student is talking about shooting up a school or hints about committing gun violence:  Take it seriously.  Tell your parents or principle so they can stop a potential tragedy.  Let students know it can be very real so you don’t wait until it happens and then tell everyone on social media or a TV camera that Johnny was talking about killing Jimmy at school.  By then it’s too late.

Stress to students this isn’t a video game.  No, it’s not like you see in movies.  Dead means exactly that when you shoot someone (unless they survive).  That means they don’t get up and walk away, dead means dead.  Life has become so cheap in this country but we can turn it around.

Tell your Congress critter you have no jurisdiction so stay out of this which I will do this week.  Both my House Rep and two Senators.  Forget throwing a couple hundred MILLION dollars that doesn’t exist (more debt piled on our backs) at schools to “stop gun violence” and school shootings.  State legislatures and school districts already have the tools to deal with this they just need to make it a community priority.

Congress: Butt out.
