The Fed prints money like it was free.
The left is irrationally opposed to having armed police officers in schools because “having more guns won’t solve the problem”
The left is mad. A police officer with a gun is the best deterrent to a crazy person intent on murdering innocents.
The left obviously wants more kids killed so they can “justify” seizing all guns from honest, law-abiding people and deliberately leaving them in the hands of violent criminals.
Just get rid of the “literacy coach” or the “science specialist” or some other make work jobs to clear up the budget for a useful employee.
They have enough money to have a ‘helper’ on the school busses...
When I was a kid you only had the driver. And cross walk guards- I dont remember seeing them when I was small (not this many at least)
But they have administrators and assistant administrators and deputy secrectary admins and 2nd undersecretary to the first admin... etc etc.
I have a crazy idea, we give 2 billion to the terror state Egypt, we give a billion to Pakistan, we have spend 6 billion on Afghanistan, we gave another billion to Libya.
HOws about we round up all the money we gove to islamic nutball terror states and use some of THAT money?
You don’t need to pay new people just to be there for security. A better solution is to simply give existing teachers and school officials the OPTION of carrying a gun. Many of them would like to do so, but are currently not allowed to.
The second problem with this money solves all problems approach is that it won't work. An armed guard can't be everywhere in a large school. There will still be school shootings. It has nothing to do with guns.
I will go along with a free approach where teachers and school administrators carry weapons. That will be much more effective than an armed guard or two and the price is right.
In the mean time, if anyone is so worried they should homeschool. Don't ask me to waste my tax dollars on an emotional non-solution.
[[Do the math, and that is slightly less than 50 cents per taxpayer per day.]]
Bu that’s 50 centrs of crack peopel won’t get to smoke every day- you monster!
Americans have typically looked at issues from the human perspective and NOT from the dollars and cents perspective.
This is an eye-opening article on how far we have sunk into the crapper when the dollars and cents of an issue take precedence over human life.
$26 billion / year is a BS number to begin with.
93,295 schools x 2 x $50k = $9.2 billion
But two guards per school are not required. In fact, hire an above average janitor and pay him an extra $10k a year to carry. Now you are at less than $1 billion.
On a separate note, I remember the left screaming that we overreacted to the attacks on 9-11. With over 93,250 public schools and a mass shooting every 23 years, there is one chance in 2,144,750 of a school being attacked in any given year. Meanwhile, there are over 8,000 home invasions every day, with 38% of assaults & 60% of rapes occurring during home invasions.
So who are they protecting by taking away our weapons?
I don’t want to pay a dime to protect the lives of children in public schools.
An amazingly simple first step is to allow staff and faculty who already have concealed carry permits to carry at work. Cost? Zero.
