Skip to comments.Why Armed Security Inside Schools Will Work, And Why Detractors Are Apoplectic
Posted on 12/28/2012 11:28:23 AM PST by Sasparilla
Rather than even consider armed security being put to use in schools immediately to try to stop another mass killing that could happen as this is read, excuses as to why not to do it are flying off the shelf faster than liberal campaign promises.
Those excuses why armed security will not work in schools are astonishing. And, they are factually challenged and pathetic too. We cant pay for it. Thats a real corker from those who use taxes and fees to pay for every social program ever known to man. Thats the same group who enforced payment for Obama phones and universal internet availability through additional tariffs (taxes) found on everyones monthly phone bill. The same taxes that funded a grant to study why people cheated at tennis. And, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration was given $2 million to research a prototype police patrol car that was never completed. The car was loaded with gadgets and would have cost $49,078 each. Its estimated that there are between 500,000 and a million police cars in the USA. The cost of security is estimated at about $69,000 per year for each of the 100,000 public schools in the USA.
High on the list is, Armed guards at schools do not work. The naysayers quickly point out the failure of the armed deputy at Columbine and the failure of the campus police at Virginia Tech.
However, one of the big anti firearms rights organizations against armed security in schools is consistently using misinformation, omissions of facts, and the usual half truths in its internet assault on armed guards at schools. They will remain nameless here. The group says it has been tried and it didnt work at Columbine and Virginia Tech. And, gullible readers with the same agenda accept the twisted story...

Yeah, let’s put a little brightly colored Elmo circle bandaid on that problem.
Or let’s go to the core solution to get to the heart of the potential shooter: Dad + the gospel of Jesus + time.
Oh wait, that’s too obvious. Let’s spend government money instead.
They don’t want armed guards, be armed guards are an effective deterrent.
What need is dead children to advance their agenda.
These are blood dancers.
These are vampires.
One of the best kept secrets our mediots keep from Americans is that 10,000 schools have armed police officers.
Teachers in Utah are flocking to “free” C&C classes, and Ohio is looking at similiar programs for its teachers:

All the more reason to eliminate the President’s Secret Service detail. If they couldn’t save JFK, what good are they?
So why do Brinks Trucks and banks have armed guards if the idea does not deter crime?
