The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut has led the nation to launch into an increasingly bitter argument over gun control laws. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, this has led to a White House petition that demands lawmakers meet “for a bipartisan discussion resulting in a set of laws that regulates how a citizen obtains a gun.” Some have suggested moderate gun reform and others like Obama are pushing for outright gun bans. A new White House petition is saying that the United States should arm the teachers as a solution to school shootings.

I see no evidence that Obama is pushing for an outright ban of guns. Such statements make our side look like a bunch of retards.
Here is the White House Petition link:
Why can’t they arm teachers with tasers so that if somehow it falls into the hands of a student it cannot be used to kill another student. I don’t know that much about tasers but it seems to make sense.
I prefer the Israel type approach. Too many is too risky (assuming every teacher would carry), and teachers will be concentrating on their actual job. Guards would properly concentrate on theirs.
Yes, that’s a better idea. Or something that can immobilize like mace. Why not even BB guns?
Your boy would ban anything he can. zot
Worrying about students or others grabbing someones firearm is why over stated by the anti’s.
It can be lessen by proper training and retention holster.
I don’t think it was meant to include all guns, but meant certain guns. Not the best writing, but that’s all.
That teacher is setting a horrible example - cigarettes and sugary soda! Where is Mike Bloomberg?
Why ban any when they’re not the problem?
If you want an unconstitutional solution to this, why not just make folks get screened annually for mental disorders and lock up those who don’t fit the bill?
Obamacare would glady pay for that as part of your “wellness visit”.
There is a reason courts and the like removed guns from all persons, even in the old, old days when everyone carried. I defer to the wisdom of the early Americans, not to mention the Israelis.
Non-sequitur. Why attacking this poster for thinking the article is errant?
Not to mention lame tank tops. Truthfully they look like trash.
What is this picture anyway?
Exactly. I’m talking about those who enter temporarily for court dates.
Obama is not “my boy”. I’m merely pointing out an inaccuracy in the article. Moron.
Of course he’s not. He’s smarter than that. Better to look hesitant to go there while operatives and speeches whip the masses into a frenzy demanding termination of their own freedoms.
Classic political technique: do what the mob demands, but make sure they come to demand what you want to do.
I absolutely agree. We need to start institutionaling people again. That was yet another grand mistake of the 60’s and 70’s.
The “we need lunatic control not gun control” article posted here earlier today links to an amazingly good article that is worth reading on this very subject.
In the meantime I ordered three 30 round clips for my Saiga and 1,000 rounds of ammo just in time. Going to get as much as I can before I can’t get it anymore.
I hate this.
