Mayor Emanuel releases fiery statement on NRA
wlsam.com ^ | December 21, 2012 | Bill Cameron

Posted on 12/21/2012 2:48:47 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe

Mayor Emanuel has released a fiery statement denouncing the National Rifle Association for advocating armed police in about every school.

Rahm Emanuel prepared an unusually strong statement, even by his standards.

“It’s outrageous and unsettling that the NRA would choose to address gun violence not by taking assault weapons off our streets, but by adding more guns to our schools, " the mayor said in a statement.

The statement went on to say "that is not the right answer for our society, our schools and most importantly our children. People across this country, from small towns to big cities, are united and ready to pass common-sense gun control legislation.”

The mayor says the time has come for the NRA to get on board or get out of the way.

It’s worth noting that for many years, many Chicago high schools have had armed police and metal detectors.

Based on his record of curbing violence in Chicago, he should be ashamed to speak

“Gun prosecutions under Obama down more than 45 percent”
http://washingtonexaminer.com/gun-prosecutions-under-obama-down-more-than-45-percent/article/2516175#.UNCXuHfZ-pc

Exclude DC,Chicago,LA, Philly, E.St.louis & Baltimore and we’d probably have the gun murder rate of Switzerland.

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
— Rahm Emanuel

“Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizen to bear arms is just one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.” - Hubert Humphrey(bitter clinger), 1960

“Gun bans don’t disarm criminals, gun bans attract them.”- Walter Mondale, U.S. Ambassador to Japan(bitter clinger), April 20, 1994

No surprise that Rahm-wad would shoot off his mouth on the NRA statement. Someone should ask him what he has to say about this:

446 school age children shot in Chicago so far this year with strongest gun laws in country – media silent The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost...

Armed police to guard the money in banks, the statues in museums and such but certainly not the children. Easy to see where their priorities are. They really hate the children don’t they.

Oh my, in the face of a massive liberal assault the NRA refuses to meekly ‘bend over’. Rahm and his fellow libs are in a bit of a panic as they realize their gun grabbing plans won't be as easy to carry out as they thought.

Gee, I wonder why none of these folks unloaded on Barbara Boxer the other day when she proposed writing legislation which would allow the National Guard to replace desk jockey cops so that those cops would then be freed up to guard the schools.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jack-coleman/2012/12/20/sen-barbara-boxer-activate-national-guard-protect-schools

I mean, Boxer is essentially saying the same thing; we need to place police officers in the schools to protect our children.

Of course, now that the NRA has endorsed Barbara Boxer’s plan, I’m sure she’ll conveniently forget all about it...

Cheers!

It’s time to put politics aside, and pass a law requiring every teacher to be issued a sidearm to be carried at all times in school, and trained to use it. Teachers who refuse should be suspended until they get psychiatric counseling for their hoplophobia. Some people may say this goes to far, but we mus act quickly for the sake of the children.

Liberal leaders have a Pavlovian instinct to generate more victims regardless of the issues...whichever path creates victims results in sheep subservient to the socialist state.

It’s amazing that he even recoils from the mention of his own police protecting children...NO...the children MUST remain defenseless, so liberals can focus on the NRA/Tea Party boogeyman and enact more draconian legislation curtailing our liberties...even if his socialist agenda is written in the children’s blood.

Rahm is completely right, you know. Armed police in the schools are not the answer. I think we should put unarmed police officers in the schools, and take the guns away from all of the police. He's right - guns do more harm than good. Even the police, and especially Rahm's bodyguards, should be unarmed to prevent even more violence.

All guns are bad, even the ones that protect our politicians, right Rahm?

I guess it would be impolite to mention the fact that Rahm Emanuel's father was an Irgun terrorist.

we need to place police officers in the schools to protect our children.

I have a better idea. As a FReeper project, we should get volunteers into all the schools. It could start in January, with Vets taking the lead. since we all have firearm training, and it could be quickly implemented. Imagine pressuring the school boards.

I think it would be easy to make most schools safe immediately. We have lots of moms and pops, grandmas and grandpas with guns! What could make the kids safer?

A great FReeper project, or get the NRA behind it..

Look at the impact from one unarmed dad! He made national news, and I'd bet a bundle that that school is safer with him there, even unarmed!!!

The Usual Suspects are against sensible security. How come there is never a mass shooting/Killing at Gun Shows or Police Conventions? The “Madmen” shooters are just not that stupid as to commit suicide before they can do ultimate damage. So if Gun Free Zones is where they like to shoot best, what ever will they do if the Gun Free Zones are armed?
With Liberals Gun Control is not about safety it is about Control.

..."that is not the right answer for our society"...

I'll agree with you there, Skippy. The society you liberals have created since the 60s is a disgrace. Armed police in our schools probably wouldn't be enough. We should probably set up claymores around the school perimeter too.

Whether they orchestrated this Reichstag, or it was just sheer coincidence, they have used it marvelously to rile up the public emotions into a high state of frenzy where citizens have been manipulated into irrational thought making "assault" weapons the demon. They are now going for the kill, driving the knife into the Second Amendment as far as they can, no matter that their actions are unconstitutional.

LaPierre’s approach today was in two stages, in case anyone missed it. He rightfully argued for immediate action. Naturally, this would be accomplished with existing trained local law enforcement. Second, he stated that the NRA Model Plan would include tax free professional training for school personnel and community leaders so they can take over the security demands in the future. This sounds like a rational plan to me.

Dear Mayor Emmanuel,

If the goal is to get as many guns as possible "off the street," I have to inform you that you're going about it all wrong. If you want to get the most guns off the street in "one shot" (no pun intended), what you need to do is disarm the police department of Chicago. After all, it will be difficult to find the people using the guns illegally, and once you do find them, my guess is that they'll object to turning them in. But if you go to every police officer and say "turn in your guns," you'll get the most bang for your buck (again, no pun intended). I'm sure you have a long list with every police officer's name and what sort of gun he carries, so by disarming the police, you'll get a tremendous number of guns "off the streets."

Of course, since your personal body-guards are probably armed, and you probably know them by name, you wouldn't even need to look them up to disarm them, and get them to turn in their guns first!
