As predicted Democrats will argue that it's perfectly OK to let young children cower in the corner as the mad man comes around room by room and shoots all of them!

Liberalism is a mental disease; the Democrat party spreads it.

Why do people hire armed guards? Why do law enforcement officers carry guns? But our “educators” advocate what’s counter intuitive, and say our children are better off unprotected.

We don’t need armed guards in all schools but we do need the option of armed personnel in all schools. Let the people in the individual school districts decide what hey want to do.

After all of the hundred thousand + schools in America, only the tiniest fraction of a percent have experienced a shooting and the number that have experienced mass shootings is only a fraction of that. There are probably 2 or 3 dozen schools in my county and not one has had a shooting that I can find.

It would cost nothing to allow CCW licensed adults to carry concealed at school and to let carefully screened community volunteers “visit” the school for a few hours each week to keep the peace.

Liberals would rather let more kids be murdered so that they can have an excuse to seize legal guns from honest, law-abiding people and deliberately leave them in the hands of criminals.

The NRA "suggested" armed law enforcement be more prevalent ..... I like the idea of signs that read this is not a gun free zone. The parents that monitor the front doors when school is in session...should have a "hot button" that alerts the class rooms and police that there might be a nut on the lose...lock doors..appropriate action will be taken.

Of course these “educators” rejected the NRA’s plan.
These so-called educators are liberals. Their god is liberalism.

If another Newtown happens, God forbid, these “educators” will be to blame.

California educators and Democratic politicians are rebuking the National Rifle Association for suggesting that more guns in schools would keep students, teachers and staff safer.

Did they rebuke President Clinton when he actually did it??.
You know darn well if yesterday that had been Obama that said this they would be falling all over themselves praising such a daring and bold move that was sure to solve the problem. What a bunch of hypocrite dumb asses..

In the San Francisco Unified School District, which has police or resource officers in all its high schools and middle schools, they aren’t really there for violence prevention, said longtime school board member Jill Wynns.

HUH???? So if some evil nut bag comes in with a gun and starts shooting kids they are what? Going to stand around and watch..
Guess intelligence is not required to be on the school board

Then don’t call 911 the next time there’s a school shooting. Police coming with GUNS will obviously only make the situation worse.

I don’t care at all what Californa says or does. That state is dead to me. And I was born and raised there (but had the good sense to escape from it in 1979).

California Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg echoed the sentiment in a statement on his website saying, “The NRA’s suggestion that we militarize our schools is not the solution.”

Saw and heard that scumbag just after a televised debate in sacto in 1998. He said at that time that he would not give an inch to anything the NRA said, and would work against them at every level.

Funny thing is, when one goes to the state capitol, one must enter the door, facing an armed CHP. Then turn right, walking down a narrow walk with two more guards standing there, then stop at the metal detector, empty the pockets into the tray, and go through the detector, while another armed guard stands at the ready, then pick up the stuff, and walk ahead, past yet one more guard, then can step into the rotunda.

Guess his on job security is worth 5-10 fully paid (by the tax dollars of school age kid's parents)armed guards, but spare one for the local school? Gots to be kidding!

If guns in school to prevent gunmen is a dumb idea, I guess fire extinguishers in school to prevent fires is equally dumb.

But many California schools already have resource officers and armed police officers stationed on campus


Guess Senate President pro Tempore Steinberg needs to do his homework...

Obviously, Mr. Steinberg doesn't feel the same way about "militarization" of the county courthouses throughout the whole freakin' state of California; if Nicolae Ceauşescu had hardened his palace to the extent the my local California courthouse is now defended by layers of armed security, he's probably still be in power.

All that seems to be missing these days are sandbagged machine-gun emplacements, aprons of barbed wire, and an interlocking network of claymore mines outside the main entrances.

Hey, Steinberg ... how about we just provide our public schools with the same grade of security that you and your fellow statists enjoy at that palatial Sacramento Statehouse of yours; works for me.

California Senator Barbara Boxer made essentially the same proposal two days earlier by calling for national guard troops in every school. Not a peep from the liberals then, nor do they mention her when criticizing the NRA.

And ftr there is a northern California school district (Richmond) that DOES employ armed securirty at all their middle & high schools and it has been effective.

I live in a up-scale community in Northern California. We have no violence in our schools, but at least at the high school level, all our schools have the town’s cops there each and every day. They are called “community resource officers, but they arrive in a police car, and carry weapons. I think that their main “mission” is drug interdiction, but they are still there with their weapons. So it’s just nonsense that at some level we don’t already have armed personnel in our schools. I am betting that in the poorer, more crime ridden areas of the state, there are cops at the elementary schools as well. Darrell Steinberg has always been FOS!
