Schools asking students for suggestions on security
Child in school | 25 January 2013 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

Schools in the area are asking students about suggestions on security at the same time schools are putting in place valid measures for control of access to the school. One must show ID and wear badges to be able to enter the school. All of that is fine. However, when students brought up the fact that almost ALL of the doors providing entry to the school are glass, the teacher told them one must also consider cost.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Local News; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: guncontrol; guns; schools; secondamendment; security
My question is, "If we can send millions of dollars to different projects around the world, spend millions (billions?) on traveling to Mars to find that, indeed, there are NO guns there, why can't we STOP spending money on countries that hate us and would welcome an opportunity to kill our children and put steel doors in the schools here along with at least one armed officer?

And, one more thing. A lot of this rhetoric needs to be toned down. The Democrats try to claim that "the people" want this gun control and when I talk to all kinds of people they generally do NOT share the Democrat point of view. So, it leads me to believe that the rhetoric coming from the liberal leftists and the gun-control proposals are merely incendiary acts trying desperately to get someone to react violently so they can then make an example of said idiot and shout, "See! I told you so!".

Please STOP posting things like, "Come and get them!; Molon Labe!; "If someone comes to my house to get my guns, gonna be a whole bunch of people permanently late for supper!" and other stupid statements. Anyone posting that stuff is either a shallow thinker or a plant (infiltrator) to stir others up into saying unnecessary things. If I didn't learn ANYTHING else from Free Republic, I DID learn this: "Never threaten anyone...it ruins the surprise." I live religiously by that now. Call your legislators and let them know what you want them to do and then sit back and wait. Not much more needs to be said other than persuading others around you to do the same. When the time comes to do anything else, you'll know.

all of whose children and grandchildren might well appreciate your level-headedness, if, of course, they had any children and grandchildren.

Any measure that gives a school “more security” can also be used to keep students *in* the school and their parents *out* of the school.

Suppose a law was passed or an executive order executed, that all schoolchildren were to be taken from their parents and raised in a State Approved Facility.

Angered and shocked, the parents go to the school-—but find their task of freeing the children that much harder, because it implemented the measures of which they themselves approved “for the children”.

I thought this post was about school security, not about how many FReepers react to the threat of gun laws.

Well: Anyway lets talk about school security.

When we go to local school with the American Legion for the Flags for First Graders program we have to enter the school and go to the office there to register. We enter their computer and register our names and have our picture taken and it prints a Visitor card with our name on it.That is their security. A secretary sitting at her desk to insist that all people entering the office sign in and get the card.

Just a couple of things here.
What is to stop anyone from going right past the office and entering the school-—Nothing.
Of course if the secretary see;s this happening she can call for you to stop or she can call the police-—they will be there in about 15 minutes.

First suggestion Lock the front door and have a buzzer to let people in. be able to get a good visual of those people before allowing them to enter.Make sure they are unarmed

Fact is if you leave the front door open an intruder is in before you can do anything about it. Having people sign in for security after they are already inside is nuts.

To: All

If your school has locked doors and requires you to “buzz in” to gain access...

Next time you’re up there to get something to the kids, give this a try. Press the handicap access button.

Doors swung wide open in the back at our high school.

Adults questioning children on security is proof that children are in charge in leftist circles.

As for the "toning down", I took a blood oath to defend the Constitution. I mean what I say.

The "adults in charge" will just cherry pick the suggestions they like, and ignore the rest. "Delphi method." Make the subjects feel as though they have input (which amounts to an opportunity to control), when in fact, they only have an opportunity to speak up AFTER the policy decisions have been made. It's a sham, a charade.

Then, I have my answer. It will be easy for them to accomplish what they wish to accomplish because you'll react exactly the way they want you too. They are going to succeed at disarming the nation. After 2-3 examples, everyone else will comply.

Well, what do you know! That is the very same King George said about the Americans just prior to the battle at Lexington and Concord.

I am one of those kook that thinks that it is better to die free than live like a slave. "It is not about how you die, it is about how you lived". I'd be in really good company.

May your chains weight gently upon your wrists.
