Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has flip-flopped throughout his career, oftentimes going against the very foundation and values the Republican Party has built itself upon, but his newest proposal of raising the minimum age to purchase a firearm is certain to cause outrage amongst traditionalists all across the United States of America.

The Second Amendment protects the First Amendment because it ensures that the Freedom of Speech Americans pride themselves on cannot be treated as a debatable.

As long as we have guns, we will never allow an oppressive regime to form a totalitarian state inside of America, which is why so many Americans vigorously defend the Constitution and especially the Second Amendment.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&quot;I absolutely believe that in this country if you are 18 years of age you should not be able to buy a rifle and I will support a law that takes that right away,&quot; says Sen. Marco Rubio <a href="https://t.co/8TgNC9Car9">https://t.co/8TgNC9Car9</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/StudentsStandUp?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#StudentsStandUp</a> <a href="https://t.co/uIBourszJJ">https://t.co/uIBourszJJ</a></p>&mdash; The Lead CNN (@TheLeadCNN) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheLeadCNN/status/966498863598198784?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 22, 2018</a></blockquote>

Now, Senator Rubio has decided to trample upon those rights, saying at a Town Hall meeting on CNN that he would support a law which restricted the rights of those who are eighteen years old adults to own firearms.

The American people, Trump supporters nationwide, and the Republican voters will in no way support such a limitation.

"I absolutely believe that in this country, if you are 18 years of age you should not be able to buy a rifle. I will support a law that takes that right away," Rubio said.

What the snake in the grass Marco Rubio forgets, is that at 18-years-old men and women are joining the military to fight and in many cases die for their country.

This is outrageous and outright nonsense. The founding fathers would roll over in their graves if they were aware the government had more powerful weapons than the taxpaying citizens which finance their operations already, let alone to hear a politician recommend further removing those rights.

This is not a solution to America's mental health problem. You cannot simultaneously strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights, or limit them in any fashion, and expect that criminals will follow suit and obey the law.

As The Goldwater has previously discussed, arming teachers who are willing to take the proper courses and training to ensure they're able to protect the children left in their responsibility is the only guaranteed defense that children in the classrooms have against armed intruders who have an intent to kill.

Without a firearm to protect themselves, what do teachers have to utilize as a means of defense against a perpetrator with a firearm? At least armed, they stand a fighting chance.

It's insanity to assume that even if we banned all guns tomorrow, that you couldn't go into the streets of the inner city and buy one for a few hundred dollars illegally.

It's also preposterous to assume that a would-be killer wouldn't simply purchase the equipment necessary to build a bomb, which can be bought at any supermarket, and build one for $50.

Again, they could just as easily wait outside the school in a running vehicle, and plow into a crowd of students, God forbid.

A travesty of sorts, we know, but the underlying problems of lacking parental influence in many households and the issue in America with mental illnesses simply aren't going away.

Rubio continued to suggest that he supports the ban on "bump stocks," which is something that many people falsely believe turns a semi-automatic weapon into a fully automatic weapon, a misconception that simply isn't true.

Besides, one can be made for a few dollars at home.

During the Town Hall, Rubio went on to suggest that he supports strengthening background checks, and that's not as much of an issue to most Americans as it is in limiting the age of purchase of banning accessories, with even the President of the United States of America tweeting support for similar tightening of already existing laws.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) along with Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is working on a unilateral bipartisan bill to raise the minimum age of purchase for rifles, one that it seems is going to receive heavy support inside of Congress after the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Certainly, any Republicans who decide to work against the Second Amendment will pay a heavy price in the Midterm elections at the hands of the American voters.

Marco Rubio made a horrible mistake, and it will come back to haunt him.

Rubio must be afraid more of those bath house pictures will mysteriously surface if he doesn't play along.

Lets us control the source of the problem Mentally Ill People.

Lets us use the Israeli School Protection plan.

They have trained armed security in every school and that the officers are very visible.

All the security officers working in the schools are under the guidance of the Israel police, and the standards are high.

Unannounced drills are frequent to test operational readiness.

So before another Politician runs for a Re-Election MIC and Camera they should look at the 8 steps to protect our schools, which were developed 4.5 years ago by Rod Ellis who is a 26+ year law enforcement veteran and police instructor former

Chief of Police of the Glynn County School District in Brunswick, Ga.

Semi-quoted

1) Identify the most likely threats to your students and staff.

2) Solicit the help and active collaboration of stakeholders and form all-hazard threat assessment teams to identify the threats and methods to warn your staff and others about the threats that can be prevented or interrupted.

3) Have a no-hassle and confidential way for the reporting of unusual/concerning activity.

4) Develop and communicate as simple of a plan as possible to staff or students on the proper course of action they should take to deal quickly with threats.

5) Train on that plan, and include students and staff, not just your own public safety staff. Then, constantly re-evaluate the plan and tweak it where necessary.

6) If you use security cameras and technology, get a vendor with good support and don’t bog down people trying to monitor technology that is beyond their ability to mentally handle. The Israelis were quick to point out that they limit anyone monitoring video to a four hour shift. Anything beyond that greatly decreases human capability to observe.

7) As much as possible, sanitize and secure areas that are to be used for large gatherings on campus.

8) Use community and student policing to make safety a mindset and culture on your campus so the programs you employ will be sustainable in the future.
