Evan Todd, a Columbine survivor, said he was tired of watching Joe Biden exploit tragedy for political gains. He also said the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate's anti-gun position leaves law-abiding citizens without a means of protecting themselves and their families against armed criminals.
"I hate to break it to you liberals, but Joe Biden supports some of the worst gun control measures that dis-empower law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves and protecting the ones that they love."
Todd pointed out that Biden has been consistently wrong regarding the Second Amendment rights.
"Joe Biden has been on the wrong side of the Second Amendment more times than not over his multi-decade political career."
The Columbine survivor said children were at risk because schools are denied from having the necessary tools to protect the children.
"The most important thing in our lives is our children, and we send them to school every day entrusting them to the school, yet we don't give them the tools they need to protect them."
Todd has been a strong advocate for arming teachers to protect children from armed criminals. His position on arming teachers was a result of his encounter with the school shooters 21 years ago. He has always recounted how he desperately hoped someone would stop the shooters and rescue them.
"I remember thinking, someone with a gun has got to come in here like any day, you know," Todd said. "You just think they're going to come in and stop these guys, and we're gonna get out of here. And, nothing."
He now believes that an armed teacher can make a difference during a school shooting. He testified in favor of a Colorado bill that would allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms within school grounds.
He says that his experience gave him a perspective people who haven't been in such a situation cannot understand.
"And that's that difficult part because I can see that side of it if you hadn't gone through something."
As for Biden, he has been openly opposed to arming teachers.
"There are so many other things we can do to make schools safer, other than arming teachers."
Despite his opposition to armed teachers, Biden has never provided any better alternative solutions except banning AR-15 style rifles despite evidence on the contrary.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
