If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.
Teachers should not have to practice barricading a classroom. Teachers should not have to know how to treat a gunshot wound. And teachers should not be told that “Lives would have been saved if you only had a gun.”
The first duty of any Government is to safeguard its people against external aggression. To guarantee the survival of our way of life.
The streets are safe in Philadelphia. It’s only the people who make them unsafe.
