Most people heard how the father of the deceased Oregon shooter was a strong advocate for gun control, blaming the gun for turning his innocent son into a mindless killer. The mother of one of the victim’s in the Oregon massacre has a completely opposite view.
Cheyenne Fitzgerald’s mother, Bonnie Schaan appeared on NBC nightly news just a few days ago saying that her daughter should have been armed. She also made urged Americans that they must arm themselves to defend their lives if this situation were to occur like this particular scenario.
Bonnie said, “America we need to pack guns–if this is what it’s coming to–to have to protect ourselves.” Apparently the pastors in the local area surrounding the college agree with multiple sermons referencing “Guns and God”.
The residents were rallying in support of the Second Amendment as reported by Breitbart. Some residents admitted that they carry everywhere they go. One disabled Marine said that he carries everywhere he goes and that all of his friends were in agreement with him. “That’s the only kind of friends I have.” Many of the local residents are criticizing the gun free policies of UCC saying that it opens doors for shootings in the future by cowards.
We couldn’t agree more with the residents surrounding UCC or the disabled veteran. Are there any colleges out there that are not “gun-free”? Perhaps we start demanding that our youth in colleges have the opportunity to arm themselves before this type of massacre happens near us…
