Safe schools? Not the public ones


To The Editor:

As the school year winds down and school budgets are scheduled to be voted upon to raise taxes on property owners, there is one family that gets a good night’s rest knowing their children are safe from school shooters doped up on Food and Drug Administration-approved antidepressants and other prescription drugs. That’s because they send their two daughters to the Washington, D.C.-based Sidwell Friends Private School, where there are no less than 11 armed guards (equals no school shootings), as reported by Alex Jones, That couple is Barack and Michelle Obama.

Since 1990, the Safe Schools Act — gun-free school zones — turned the public schools into children kill zones. After the shooting stops, politician ( many have guns of their own or have security details of their own) come out and blame guns just to advance more gun control, which does not stop gun violence; it just disarms the law-abiding and is a great help for the criminals, terrorists and tyrants. In closing, the Sidwell Friends School is a Christian school with Quaker values. Remember, the Supreme Court took God out of the public schools, which has added to the decline of the public school system and is the reason President and Mrs. Obama and others send their children to private schools.
