Rep. Gohmert: I Wish to God the Principal Would Have Had an M4 in Her Office Locked Up… So She Didn’t Have to Lunge With Nothing (Video)

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a staunch Second Amendment defender, told Chris Wallace today on FOX News Sunday,

“Every mass killing in more than three people have been in places where guns are prohibited except one… And, hearing the heroic story of the principal lunging, trying to protect. Chris, I wish to God she would have had an M4 in her office locked up. So when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands, But she takes him out, takes his head off before he could kill those precious kids.”

    Calling for help waiting for guns to arrive in the form of police officers has been known to fail…….A side story to the home invasion massacre in CT house of Dr. Petit is how the police sat outside the home in their cruiser debating what to do as young girls were being killed in cold blood….>

    This satanic butcher appears to have had an abundance of time to be breaking through a door, engaging in a verbal argument with the principal, over the school intercom system, then kill 28 people in multiple gun shot wounds. How far away was the police department ? Why did the killer he have so much time ? and not one person in the school is allowed to defend themselves appropriately. MAYBE THE PRINCIPAL OF EVERY SCHOOL SHOULD BE A POLICE OFFICER instead of some nanny hen den mother.

    This guy should be the first in line to get a mental health checkup to determine if he is worthy of the responsibility of a gun. He clearly has no grasp of reality.

    We’re still talking about Gun Control when we should be talking about ‘Mentally Deranged’ control. How does the American Welfare State fail so miserably when it comes to TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE WHO CANNOT TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES?

    Don’t all the the recent shooting rampages involve someone who is mentally unstable?

    No, Liberals would rather give out FREE cellphones, fund unproven technologies, and bail out their political allies, instead of actually solving some problems.

  • DecentAmerican

    Dear foolish #2…… So you are ok with sending your defenseless children to places where they are completely unprotected, and there is no one there with any ability to protect your kids from crazy violent liberals like Lanza?

    You don’t love your kids, do you?

    Just like this demon prez who sent Brian Terry into harms way with beanbag bullets, and sent assault rifles to his enemies to murder him, the blood of these children are on the liberals hands, who did not protect them who defended school security, who prevented the mentally ill from getting treatment.

    God help you abd other liberals for your hatred of children that you would refuse to protect them.

  • iconoclast

    The approach of arming a certain number of school staff has worked well in Israel, which has not had an incidence of school shooting since 1974. A vice-principal in Pearl, Mississippi was able to stop a killer (after having had to go to his vehicle to get a gun).

    Laws don’t stop atrocities. People with guns stop atrocities. And if people mistrust their children’s teachers so much that they don’t want any of them able to protect their children then just maybe the kids are in the wrong school.

  • averagemelon

    When the devil comes to fight, he never comes fighting fair.

    Oh, what a sad and terrible day for the victims and all those left behind who loved them. Blame is irrelevent unless we can learn to love one another more than hate them. Guns don’t operate by themselves: they are commanded by either good or evil to perform. It is horrifying to know how many people keep choosing evil to use their hands.

    We will NEVER get rid of this problem until we yank its root. If you outlaw guns, the evil will just use bombs, knives, arrows, fire. We need to stop the evil before it blooms and consumes its first victim.

    “the evil will just use bombs”

    The worst school massacre in US history was done with a bomb. Look up Bath Massacre. And bombs are a favorite weapon of our Islamist enemies.

  • iconoclast

    “God help you abd other liberals for your hatred of children that you would refuse to protect them.”

    She merely demonstrates the left’s tactic of never letting a crisis go to waste. Deal with the real problem? Not so much as exploit a tragedy or atrocity in order to advance an agenda. That the agenda will either make no difference to the issue or make matters worse is a feature, not a bug.

  • gastorgrab

    As offensive as this might sound, I believe the first victim, the mother, “enabled” the shooter.

    I DO NOT BELIEVE that the shooter had Asperger’s Syndrome. The traits explained by a few who came into contact with the shooter seem more consistent with Schizophrenia than with anything in the Autistic spectrum. (but i’m no expert)

    The mother was clearly struggling with caring for her son, according to news reports. “Trying to hold herself together”, according to one person who knew her. So why would she not limit access to potentially dangerous cars, knives, guns, etc, like anyone with small children might do?

    Was she lying to herself with the Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis? Was she afraid the neighbors might not want to live next door to someone who is Schizophrenic?

    Denial sometimes kills.

    What is going to happen if we take away all guns from all US citizens and another massacre happens? What will be outlawed next? Nobody has been able to explain that yet.

    Secondly, we all get disarmed but obama’s worthless Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano refuses to seal a very porous Southern border so armed illegals sneak through and we get to be sitting ducks?

    Are you kidding me?

    Hammer liberals with this.

    Rep. Gohmert is a TRUE AMERICAN! It gives TRUE AMERICANS REAL HOPE that America might not be destroyed from within. There are still PATRIOTS OUT THERE in the land of free, as much as Anti-2nd Amendment Obama and vermin hate it. We see through Obama’s fake tears, all the lies and con games. We the people are onto you. Contact your congressmen and senators, both at the state and federal levels, let them know that half the country might be a bunch of yellow bellied freeloaders, but the other half is mad as hell.

    “What is going to happen if we take away all guns from all US citizens and another massacre happens? What will be outlawed next? Nobody has been able to explain that yet.”

    Whatever is next on the progressive agenda. You do realize that the failure of their nostrums is a feature to them, not a bug, right? When more atrocities occur then another right can be taken away. And, as long as that right has little to do with the atrocity or tragedy, they are assured of many more crisis to callously exploit.

    mrs. lincoln, (#2)
    though the idea of an armed school principal is disturbing, it’s no reason to pass
    judgement on this guy, saying he needs a mental health checkup. he seems to be staking out “territory” from which 2nd amendment rights groups will start the gun-control negotiations, and there will be negotiations.
    in our texas school district, there are policemen at every middle school and high school.
    i remember being stunned at the idea when our daughter started middle school, but
    after getting used to the idea (and getting to know the officer), it was fine.
    i have no knowledge about whether or not police are provided to elementary schools here
    or anywhere else, but had there been a police officer available on site, would that have
    made a difference?
    for the life of me, i do not understand how a parent of a child like this can have guns
    in the home. maybe, mrs. lincoln, it should’ve been the parent who needed a “mental health checkup” in order to have been “deemed worthy of the responsibility of a gun.”

  • Lady Mondegreen

    #3, with all due respect, Sasja dear. those with a lick of common sense disagree. If the gun is locked up, as it needs to be, by the time the principal can get to it and take action (that is assuming her aim is good) it’s all over anyway. It is time for conservatives to take a common sense approach to guns admit that the right to bear arms is not without limits.

  • Sasja

    The first time I held a rifle, I was three-years-old. Put in my hands by my father. I am well into my sixties and have never wanted to harm anyone with any weapon at any time throughout my life. Although there have been times when I wanted to slap some sense into an idiot like Rainmom. We were taught proper use and respect for the weapon we held. It was that way for alot of families. We had gun clubs at school. No mass shootings or anyone playing around with their firearm; you know, behaving stupidly. The problem is non-thinking, lacking in common sense, whiney, cowardly, liberals who do not believe in teaching children respect for human life.

  • Ray

    Northeasterners,even purported conservatives,know absolutely nothing about guns. Was watching Foxnews this morning and the one doctor,who is a major foe of Obamacare and generally conservative,was calling for an “assault weapons ban”.

    Myths about gun ownership in Israel and Switzerland.

    Both countries require you to have a reason to have a gun. There isn’t this idea that you have a right to a gun. You need a reason. And then you need to go back to the permitting authority every six months or so to assure them the reason is still valid.

  • Patty

    Undoubtedly the video games seem to play a part in the violence we have seen in Loughner and Lanza. Some kids cannot split real from fake, especially one who has no friends and feels like a misfit.

    But banning guns and videos are not the answer. Armed police who can be in plain clothes would deter violence but that is not the only answer.

    This young man’s emotional and mental problems could not have been unnoticed by the parents, friends or others. It seems that so many things compound together was too much for Lanza. And my first thought if I were this child’s mother with problems, I would have thought about the possibility he or she would get a hold of my guns.

    You can only speculate and parents can keep lines of communication open and seek help immediately when things aren’t right.

  • Patty

    The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.

    In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions concerning the Second Amendment. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.[4]


    There have been some restrictions in recent years. Guns cannot be carried in Federal buildings.

    Our rights to protect ourselves will never changed.

    I just love it when the lincoln’s shrew idiots want to compare us to some other countries. We are citizens of the United States. We have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights. We bow to no one and we do not care what other countries do, or do not, do unless it directly affects our way of life.
    Right now it appears those who want to see this great Republic neutered has gained ground, but they will not prevail.

  • My one and only question to dense brains full of mush like lincoln’s wife: Why do you call the police in a situation like this?

    Oh, is it in hopes that they will get there in time to protect you WITH THEIR GUNS, from the bad guy(s)?

    arm more? or disarm? The path of disarm starts looking like the UK where even the cops have been disarmed. Now really only the criminals have guns.

    In your world one day the phrase will be: when only seconds count, the police are only minutes away, with their whistles and batons.

    Posting straw-man arguments is not a way to intelligibly advance a discussion. But then, you know that.

    My thanks to Bigkahuna for posting something relevant, which I am going to re-post for everybody’s convenience.

    We have a situation in this country where well-meaning people have ostentatiously created soft targets, and every sick, demented, creepy, mentally ill person and terrorist knows it, because of the publicity. The threat is real, it is deterrable, and we can deal with it better. But first, we have to get out of the state of denial.

    Just because it would be unthinkable for you to set out to commit the random murder of innocent people and children doesn’t mean it is unthinkable to somebody. The article Bigkahuna posted is a really good place to start a discussion: why don’t we take what we know about firefighting, and apply it to violent attack?

    From the article linked above:

    “How many kids have been killed by school fire in all of North America in the past 50 years? Kids killed… school fire… North America… 50 years… How many? Zero. That’s right. Not one single kid has been killed by school fire anywhere in North America in the past half a century. Now, how many kids have been killed by school violence?”

    The analogy to fire seems useful, to me.

  • Patty

    And I wonder how often this young man prayed or went to church. Many have turned their eyes away from God and we are going to change things. You see, when things have been so opposite and are going so far from the right direction, the only way is God and righteousness.

    I do see this nation looking at itself and looking at our families and asking are we doing what is right for ourselves, family and friends. Faith and instructing our children to do the right thing is a job for both parents but it can be done by one parent when the other is gone.

    Children don’t need both father and mother to know God and it is possible at an early age to teach your child of God’s love for all of us. Lanz may never had been taught about God’s love and his love for him. And no many how naive this may sound, it is one of the most important action any parent can take. God in our life.

    i’m an idiot and a liberal because i think that people who have disturbed children
    might want to seriously consider having guns in the house, and because i wonder if things would’ve been different had there been a policeman on site?
    we’re not all gun people, sasja , that doesn’t mean that we don’t defend your right
    to keep and bear arms. (who would you feel safer with, a principal who may not be
    a gun person, but was forced to take weapons training or a cop who is perfectly
    comfortable with this part of the job?)
    you may have been taught proper respect for weapons, but you were never taught
    proper respect for others, even those on your side. chill!
    btw, we are tea party patriots in this house!

    A principal has a system that could be used if possible. I feel the alert system could be worn around their neck. It would automatically lock every school room door. And it would at least give a few moments for the children and teachers to take some form of cover.

    Alert system button is around her neck at all times and also one or two in other parts of the school. just an idea.

    There’s a reason people aren’t informed about the many times the opposite of what happened at Newtown is the case.The media refuses to show them. They’ll never report what happens hundreds of times across the U.S. when an armed private citizen saves their own or others life by having the means to protect themselves. The liberal media and the liberal narrative will not allow truthful information about anything that goes against their belief system.

    Holder himself said in an interview in Chicago before he was DOJ head that the public needed to be brainwashed into believing gun control (confiscation of guns) was necessary. So far the brainwashing has succeeded to a great degree and the rhetoric we’re hearing now from Democrats and the press is part of it.

  • freeinaz

    Congressman Gohmert is a great American and patriot. I wish there were more congressmen and congresswoman who would take this type of stance against evil. Of course the liberals are using this for an attempt at more control under the guise of gun control or 2nd amendment restrictions. I read some tweets from many progressives who want to do away with the 2nd amendment altogether. More liberties and freedoms they want to do away with. Mark my words, the left will use this as an attempt to do away with legal gun possession. Their rallying cry will be “It’s for the children”.

    If it was a “Mental health” issue, it was on the part of the Obama and his administration, because i believe this was a “False Flag” attack to be used as a pre-text to Ban Assault Weapons. I expect more of these to happen. Also, a “heads up” about these “False Flag” attacks. I believe this tactic is what Obama plan’s on using to Ban and criminalize the criticism of islam. He will start making noise about that issue subtly before hand, then he /Jarrett will tell their Gestapo’s to have an attack plan ready to go, as soon as the first criticism is said about islam, to justify his Banning of criticism of it! So everyone keep a Watchful Eye out for that one!

    Your info on Switzerland is WAY off. Google “lowest crime rates in the world” and Switzerland pops up at the top. Every male not previously incarcerated is given MANDATORY firearm training and ISSUED firearm(s) at age 18. They also have no military, but rather a nationwide militia consisting of every man (much like our own nation started out, when it was led by people of wisdom and common sense.) And Switzerland is at the top of the list in crime prevention. Arm the people, crime goes DOWN. Every statistical study shows it! Why can’t liberals understand math?
