NIU and the False Promise of Safety

The students crawled on their bellies, struggling to escape the sandstorm of bullets and buckshot as former graduate student Steven Kazmierczak opened fire in an auditorium-style classroom at Northern Illinois University, killing five students and then himself.

Here are the words of some of the survivors:

“I realized he was actually shooting at people, and I got down.”

“People were running at me and screaming and freaking out. … I went back into the law library and we were locked in for, like, two hours.”

“We all moved to one side of the classroom and tried to lock the door, but it didn’t have a lock.”

“Me and another guy hopped up and ran outside.”

Notice what no one says:

“I drew my pistol and shot the killer.”

On yet another campus, American students left defenseless by unConstitutional gun laws were murdered.

Meanwhile, NIU administrators sent students email messages instructing them to “get to a safe area and take precautions”.

“I don’t know of any plan that can prevent this kind of tragedy,” said NIU president John Peters.

He’s right. A plan can’t stop a bad guy with a gun. But good guy with a gun could.

But until Americans rise from their bellies and refuse to trade liberty and responsibility for the cozy illusion of safety, the good guys will be shackled by bad laws, and the killers will know that they’re the safe ones.
