Guy seems to like using the F word a lot.
The news coverage has been disgraceful. It has portrayed LaPierre as a madman.
I dunno. I think shifting the conversation to the subject of how to protect children in schools with guns was good, but talking about having a cop in every school, not so much.
As far as the pukes in the media are concerned, wouldn’t you say it’s an appropriate use of the word?
Name calling is all the media whores have in retort. LaPierre was verbally skeet shooting at that press conference. The media cowards run just like mass shooters do when confronted.
Great choice of words, there. I can almost hear PULL during the interview.
The "news" coverage of Sandy Hook was worse than disgraceful .... every rumor that blew on the breeze was reported as news. I think someone counted 8 or 9 major errors. They have no shame. Someone should hold them to account ... how, I'm not sure, but it needs to be done. The DMC (Democrat Media Complex) is a major player in the ruination of this country.
Many schools already have one. They cost about the same as a school bus. What's the problem?
Number one, I don’t like the idea that if two kids get into a fight at school, now they have police records. Kids should be kept away from police for as long as possible.
Certainly, if any local district wants to do it, it’s not my business. But if we’re talking about the federal government paying to have a cop in every school, I could think of better ways to spend or not spend that money.
I, too, thought the idea of police in the schools was a bad idea back when Bill Clinton signed off on federal money to make it happen (http://articles.latimes.com/2000/apr/16/news/mn-20323).
However, this must have made some contribution to reducing gun deaths among school children over the years.
Now that the NRA endorses the idea I’m all for it.
self post for later reading.
I’m not sure, at the least, a full cop is NEEDED. Private guards, some of which are unrevealed second careers of teachers, should suffice.
I argue that There's a lot of good ideas here including the framework that affords local adjusting by municipalities to meet individual circumstances. You won't see THAT in any federal program. Wait, there is no program, silly me.
I continue to reason that doing nothing is not an option, but denying me my unalienable rights under the constitution is NOT an acceptable option for me.
NRA members didn't march into Newtown and kill those kids and adults - but the politicians & scumbags at HCI mandated the "free-fire" zones that made it all possible. And don't believe for a moment that they don't like it that way. The status quo fires the engines of their fascist agenda, all while congratulating themselves in the name of liberal "progress".
They all have blood on their hands and project it on the NRA as the monster in this tragedy. It's disgusting, deplorable and intellectually dishonest. But no one can lie to the face of a grieving parent tasked with burying a son or daughter like a filthy politician can.
Shame on their souls.
Gun-free zones killing our kids!
The Eighteenth Amendment is the warning sign of how far people like Michael Bloomberg will go if we are not careful. Don't say it can't happen.
“Private guards, some of which are unrevealed second careers of teachers”
That’s an excellent idea. I think it’s important that they be in plain-clothes, like active teachers and `sky marshalls’ on airplanes, so that a gunman isn’t sure who to target.
So there’s a solution. But the left will continue to deny the truism that bad men with guns are only stopped by good men with guns.
They will continue to insist that all guns—”assault rifles!”—be made illegal, knowing full well that by definition `bad men’/criminals have gotten into the habit of ignoring laws that they don’t wish to obey.
I’m convinced that most Democrats go to college and spend four years eating the covers off their books.
You’re right, of course.
A protective agent with the rights and duties of any ordinary citizen is all that would be needed, and worth talking about.
Go to KCRA.COM for a strange home invasion. The shooter is still dead.
What is wrong with the NY Post? They call LaPierre a gun nut on their front page today and have been consistently on the wrong sides of this issue. Are they convinced they will lose circulation if they defend the Constitution? I am seriously considering not buying the paper anymore, but maybe they are looking at what they think is their bottom line. Disgrazia!
Somewhere there is a plan to take the guns and worry about courts later. The plan probably
is to deal with it later and grab the guns while the grabbing is good. But there's a flaw,
more Americans are arming themselves just hearing about a ban. And I doubt local officers
will want anything to do with it since they are not military and can just say no.
The only recourse would be to call up the national guard to do the dirty work.
But will they even have ammo in their guns? And are Troops willing to kill Americans?
You have to put it in context. How do you protect children in schools without some sort of security which involves an armed opponent to the bad guys? Do you actually try to take everyone's weapons (and Freedom) away? Do you build impregnable fortresses and call them schools?
No to each of the other choices - you ensure that any murderous child killer is met with a dose of return fire. Armed security is the best defense against armed bad guys. I would go further than just a cop at schools - arm and train a percentage of staff and pay them a bit more for the role they play in deterring the bad guys - just knowledge that there are armed people at schools is enough to stop most of those who use them as shooting galleries.
I think we all would probably agree that staff should be allowed to be armed at school, and moreover, there should be a requirement that there be a weapon kept on the premises at all times, and at least one person on the staff trained and authorized to make use of it in an emergency.
Sorry. I don’t use that word. It might be a sign of being something big to some. To me, it only proves one has a foul mouth.
