Skip to comments.Rev. Jackson: Armed police in schools not answer
Posted on 12/22/2012 5:16:18 AM PST by Tailgunner Joe
The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the National Rifle Association's call for armed police in schools is no solution to mass shootings.
Jackson reacted Friday after the NRA's top lobbyist said armed police were the only way to stop another tragedy like last week's mass slaying at a Connecticut elementary, where a gunman killed 20 students and six teachers.
Jackson says armed police officers "couldn't compete" with an attacker with an assault weapon, and that a ban on such weapons was needed.
He says he's disappointed that the NRA "showed no remorse" and offered more guns as a solution. He says bearing arms for hunting or self-defense is different from carrying assault weapons.

Hey Jes, does your son own weapons he is in mental health help isnt he????How many armed guards are covering your A$$???
We known he has been brainless for years.
Jackson was an early-adopter of death dancing, crisis exploitation.
Hey Jesse, with all the gun laws you have in Chicago, and the fact that over 400 children have been killed there, why aren’t you on your city streets hollering about the violence in the welfare communities that Democrats created?
Democrats kill babies don’t they.
Has ANY one given us a viable plan or solution to school vulnerability?
So has this clown fired his armed security detail and moved into the hood?
The arrogance of ignorance is most brilliantly portrayed by self righteous liberals of whom the Rev Jesse Jackson is a shining example. He does not know what an assault weapon is. He believes his neighbors are an intolerable threat. But he is smart enough to know that ridding his constituents of guns will simplify his pied piper parade to serfdom.
Mabe they should now pull all of those security guards out of Chicago schools.
Jackson has no right to be referred to as ‘reverend’.
He is a pro-abortion, homosexual-hugging, secular-humanist piece of racist-pimp scum!
He is no more a Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury!
And as for the ‘reverend’ Sharpton....
There has to be more to the story ... when the left erupts in unison about something there usually is some underlying reason why they all react as they do. What is it about armed guards in schools that they all so violently disagree with?
Jessie fears an increase in arrests and shootings of gang/drug types in schools by police defending themselves.
And fears the exposure of how many of Obama’s sons are at the core of it. Racist? Nope, Statistical fact. I wish it were different.
No, of course not! Gotta take everybodys guns, knives, sticks and sporks!
His weak power is the only thing he has in his worthless life.
Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr., should go back to his old tried and true mantra that thrills people such as Bob Schieffer and the popular media: “Up With Hope, Down With Dope”. But the problem was the “dope” go so popular too.
A person insane enough to shoot his own mother in the face and murder 20 innocent children is certainly capable of finding alternative weapons if guns are unavailable.
It has worked in Israel. Not one single person has died in their schools since 1974 when they started training, arming and deploying guards.

Bullshit. It is just a gun. The cop would have a gun too! I wish these idiots that don’t know a pistol from a shotgun would STFU and stay out of thing they have no knowledge of..
