American Freedom Alliance: School Shootings

Yet another school shooting, this one in Texas, has rocked the country as gun violence on our school campuses seems to be on the rise.

Does the fault lie in our policies as a country regarding guns?  Or is it something deeper?  What about the individuals committing gun violence?  What is it that is sending these people over the edge and into a mode where they are willing to kill?

Today I will be at an American Freedom Alliance event that will address school shootings, and gun violence in general.

School Shootings: Facts, Fallacies, Freedom and the Future


Date and Time


Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel
11461 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90049
Why is the American Freedom Alliance hosting a conference on school shootings? Because fundamentally, it's a freedom issue. There is a vicious downward spiral of policies, cultural pressures and reactions that becomes apparent when these horrific events occur. Only by confronting the various components in this spiral: turning our schools into "soft targets;" the "promise" program and collusion between police and schools that puts kids in harm's way; fatherlessnss and the destruction of families; the war against our boys and the increasing tendency to see masculinity as toxic; the over-prescribing of psychotropic drugs; the "celebrity" culture that is appealing to many of the perpetrators of these attacks - only by addressing these as an aggregate can we really help protect our kids, our safety and our freedoms.

And note the other part of this feedback loop: these events - results of leftist policies - are then used to advance the primary agenda: to confiscate our guns, make us all more vulnerable to attacks of ALL kinds, and again, to deprive us of our freedoms. 

Join us for this important event and help us break this spiral and fight back against those who strive in every way, including by putting our children at risk, to take away our freedoms.

Speakers include:

- Dr. John Lott, head of Crime Prevention Research Center and the nation's leading expert on gun-related issues
- Dr. Arthur Przebinda, head of Doctors For Resonsible Gun Ownership
- Dr. Warren Farrell, author and expert on topics of Fatherlessness and The Boy Crisis
- Mark Tapson, author and analyst, and expert on topics relating to culture and the war against boys
- Dr. Jaclyn Schildkraut, professor and co-author of Mass Shootings: Media, Myths, and Realities (2016)
- Kenneth Preston and Kyle Kashuv, courageous Parkland students who have spoken out in defense of Second Amendment rights and against the failures of the administration entrusted to protect the students.
- And ANNOUNCING ANDREW KLAVAN, cultural analyst, author and political commentator

As an added note: I have been a fellow for the American Freedom Alliance for a few years, and it is with great pleasure that I attend this event.  For those of you who follow me on Facebook, I will be taking pictures during the event (and perhaps a Facebook live video), so be on the look out for those throughout the day.
