MICHAEL MOORE, December 21, 2012 “[Columbine] had armed guards and it didn’t cease the tragedy. ” —DENNIS VAN ROEKEL (president, nationwide schooling Association), December 27, 2012 I listen this argument for all time and there are numerous issues of it. First, the most obvious one: you don’t take one facts element and brush off a complete proposal as a result of it—especially while you're fascinated by protecting youngsters secure. If you’re going to inform me that the Columbine assault succeeded regardless of armed guards, you greater inform me in regards to the circumstances that failed as a result of them. take into accout Vice vital Joel Myrick in Mississippi? He stopped a killer through operating to his automobile to snatch a gun. What if it have been in his workplace as an alternative? What if Pearl highschool were staffed with an armed cop? We’ll by no means know—but don’t increase Columbine except you’re prepared to discuss them all. yet my major challenge with this argument is that it’s fairly simply now not precise. at the very least now not within the means they struggle to make it look. Here’s a condensed model of what relatively occurred that day in response to the Jefferson County, Colorado, Sheriff’s place of work: Sheriff’s Deputy Neil Gardner, a fifteen-year veteran of the Sheriff’s place of work, used to be assigned as a “community source officer” to Columbine highschool. He mostly ate lunch within the cafeteria with the children, yet on that day, he ate in his automobile along the campus manager. the 2 males have been tracking scholars in a space referred to as the “smokers’ pit. ” round 11:23 a. m. , a custodian radioed to Gardner, “Neil, i would like you within the again lot! ” Gardner all started his vehicle and pulled out onto the line. one other name, this one over his police radio, undefined: “Female down within the south lot of Columbine highschool. ” Gardner, believing lady have been hit through a automobile, wear his lighting fixtures and siren and started to make his means towards that parking zone. As Gardner pulled into the lot he observed young children working, smoke pouring from the varsity, and he heard numerous explosions and gunfire. one other message then came to visit the college radio: “Neil, there’s a shooter within the institution. ” Gardner started to get out of his automobile yet used to be instantly bombarded with gunfire. in keeping with the document: “Eric Harris grew to become his realization from capturing into the west doorways of the highschool to the coed parking zone and to the deputy. ” After firing nearly ten pictures his gun jammed and Gardner lower back hearth. Harris finally reloaded and started firing back ahead of finally taking flight again into the college. (This alternate can have proved precious, because it not on time the killers on their technique to the varsity library, the place the majority of the killing happened. ) Very quickly after that, extra backup started to arrive at the scene. issues stick out from this document: First, there have been no longer “2 armed guards” on the college that day; there has been one. And moment, whereas Michael Moore is technically right that the safeguard was once “at” Columbine highschool, he was once no longer “in” it. to exploit this because the top instance of why armed guards in faculties won’t paintings is beautiful disingenuous.
