School Obama's Daughters Attend Has 11 Armed Guards [school employees - not secret service]

Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact.

The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.

If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point.

The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC's David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren't used (and weren't even allowed).

Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.

These 11 armed guards are not secret service employees. Instead, they are school employees who have been there since long before Obama ever became President. Obama chose to send his daughters to this school, knowing that it had these armed guards. It's funny how even the biggest critics of the NRA's suggestion that schools have armed guards have not been critical of this particular school for having armed guards. What a bunch of gun control hypocrites.

I hope the mods will allow this duplicate posting, as this info is so important that it deserves to be repeated.

Emerging Nomenklatura sysem; media is extension of the state, leaders more and more isolated from populace (specials stores, planes, schools), laws don’t apply to elites, emergence of non-pro journalists who report the “real news”....

I wonder how many other gun grabbing liberals send their children to this school because public schools do a poor job of educating or are UNSAFE.

How many of those 11 armed guards are armed with assault semi-automatic rifles with clips holding more than 10 rounds? Or for that matter pistols holding more than 10 rounds?

Well, at least we taxpayers are NOT paying for those 11 armed guards. I would like to see what the sentiment here at FR is for our paying for an armed guard at every school in the country. I think the cost has ranged from $6 billion to $26 billion a year.

Well I admit it is understandable, but it’s not just in DC. There are liberals everywhere telling us how great and safe our schools are, yet they put their children in private schools with security. I want them to practice what they preach or get the hell out of my life!

MANY schools already have armed security. It's not about gun control....it's about ON SITE prevention.

And they should come up with something better than "lock down"....dispersement is likely a better option.

I read that some of the clasrooms in CT did not even have doors that locked from the inside, apparenlty the only kids that survived made it into closets that had locking doors

PR overcame common-sense first line of defense security

Seems classrooms neeed to be like cockpits, with bulletproof locking doors

and escape routes

and cops that dont take 20 minutes to arrive

“I would like to see what the sentiment here at FR is for our paying for an armed guard at every school in the country. I think the cost has ranged from $6 billion to $26 billion a year.”

At 26 billion a year @ 40,000 per cop that would come to about 65000 schools...are there really 65000 schools needing to be covered? Also, I think that many have advocated having trained volunteers, faculty and/or administration to take up arms. Cost would be negligible

But, whatever the cost, remember. “It's for the children”....

You mean the McDonalds on Martin Luther King St.
(old Nichols Avenue.)

They needed armed guards there.

Probably any McDonalds on any Martin Luther King St in the world needs armed guards.

This is easy to understand. The fascist elite believe their children have value, while these same elite fascists believe that your children have no value.

Surely you can imagine a way to avoid paying for NEW security personnel. My local school has had two State Troopers at the school since Newtown. No additional officers were hired to perform this function...resources were simply reallocated. The argument against funding new personnel is a strawman argument. Schools could even approve retirees with CCW to spend one day a week “visiting”, and arm willing staff.

I would think that the most motivated would be parents or teacher/administration. BTW the NRA has a great training program for civilians and cops.
