Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) boasted about armed officers at banks to analogize that more firearms on school campuses would make them safer – just 10 days before five people were killed in a bank shooting in Louisville.

Cruz tweeted on March 31: ““When you go to the bank and you deposit money in the bank, there are armed police officers at the bank. Why? Because we want to protect the money we save. Why on earth do we protect a stupid deposit more than our children?

“We have an opportunity right now to double the police officers on campus and keep kids safe.”

Cruz’s boasting did not age well. On Monday, five people and the gunman were killed and eight others injured at the Old National Bank in Louisville when a suspected disgruntled employee opened fire.

Of course, this is hardly the 1st time that the “good guys with guns” failed to stop the “bad guys with guns.” In Uvalde last summer, dozens of officers stood down and refused to go after an active shooter while children bled out and died. That was in a school. This was after it was found out that the officer assigned to be at the school was MIA when the shooting started.

In Parkland, Florida, another officer hid like a coward outside the school while children were massacred.

And those are just two of many examples where the good guys with guns failed in every way shape, and form to stop the bad guy with a gun.

In fact, the most heroic lifesaver recently was an unarmed civilian, Brandon Tsay, who wrestled the killing machine away from the Monterey Park shooter.

Is it yet the time when we admit that more guns everywhere don’t make us safer? Recently, John Stewart interviewed outspoken gun advocate and Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm. He asked Dahm when the more guns = safer citizens question — Dahm couldn’t answer that question.

Odds are, neither can Ted Cruz, or anyone else.
