The media and Democrats leapt at the chance to exploit the tragedy in Parkland, Florida to push for new gun control.
But there is one law Congress can pass that could stop this madness.
And Rush Limbaugh just let everyone in on the secret.
Limbaugh appeared on Fox News Sunday and endorsed concealed carry in schools.
The king of conservative talk radio reasoned that armed faculty members are the only defense against maniac gunmen.
“Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called for concealed carry in U.S. schools on Sunday in response to the deadly shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 and injured several others.
“The solution is we need concealed carry in these schools,” Limbaugh said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” “If we’re not going to take action, we better have mechanisms in these schools to stop it when it breaks out.”
Democratic officials and some Republicans responded to the fatal shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday by calling for tighter regulations on guns. But many Republican leaders have downplayed the need for additional laws, with President Donald Trump and other officials instead emphasizing the need for mental health reform.
But Limbaugh suggested Sunday that to prevent more mass casualties, open concealed carry laws should be extended on school campuses.
“If we don’t do that, then all the rest of this is nothing more than political posturing for the 2018 midterms and the 2020 election,” Limbaugh said of the measure.

Limbaugh and other right-wing commentators in the past have suggested that if school officials or students were armed, casualties during mass shootings could be reduced.”
Gun free school zones leave teachers and students as sitting ducks to deranged killers.
They have no means to defend themselves.
In fact, one heroic student, Colton Haab – who shielded a student with bulletproof Kevlar – stated that if the coach who was killed shielding students had had a firearm, he could have stopped the shooter.
The Daily Caller reports:
“A ROTC student who survived the Parkland, FL shooting said the hero football coach who shielded students could have stopped the shooter if he had a firearm.
Colton Haab, a 17-year-old student at Stoneman Douglas High School, was a hero in his own right during Wednesday’s shooting. Haab, a junior ROTC member, told Fox News that he shielded his classmates with bulletproof kevlar mats as the shooter swept the halls.
“We lined [the students] up into the wall and along the back of the wall…and from there I was standing with my first sergeant and I said, ‘these are kevlar, these are bulletproof material,’” Haab recalled. “We started moving the kevlar sheets forward.”
Haab also revealed that he believes Coach Aaron Feis, who died while shielding students with his body, could’ve stopped the shooter if he had his firearm with him in school.
“Unfortunately, gun control, it’s definitely needed a little bit more,” he explained. “I believe if we did bring firearms on campus to teachers that are willing to carry…and they got their correct training for it, I think that would be a big beneficial factor for school safety.”
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
But Democrats and the media don’t want to hear real solutions.
The horrible truth is journalists and Democrats wait in anticipation for these horrible tragedies.
They know the emotional blackmail of the survivors is their only chance to take another step toward enacting their one true goal – the confiscation of every firearm in America.
