Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, former Army Ranger, is a nationally recognized expert on human aggression, and the roots of violent crime. He was the main speaker at the recent Lincoln Day dinner, an annual event sponsored by Franklin County Republicans. His message was straight to the point: Our schoolchildren are in great danger from mass killers, and this country is mostly in denial about that fact.

He pointed to the increase in shootings at schools in this country, and says there will be more. He urges more training for administrators and teachers as to what to do to protect children from violence. He explained that we go to great lengths to protect our money in banks and other places, but we don’t do enough to protect something that is more precious, which is our children.
