A uniformed policeman will be the first victim of a mass killer. Any security, public or private, will need to be incognito.

I’ve been putting together a proposal to send to my congressmen and county sheriff that basically suggests we reinstitute the old west posse. Volunteers who would undergo background checks, training, and qualify with their arms. Little or no cost to schools and police departments. With the millions of firearms enthusiasts in the USA, we should be able to find plenty of people to give one day a month to cover a school or after school event.

Right after the Columbine shooting I was working at a rural school in Mid New York State. The proposal was floated that myself and others that had firearms training and military/ security experience carry concealed at school. We went to the Principal and the Assistant Superintendent and the very first question we had was "Who is going to pay the liability insurance and what exactly will it cover?"

The idea died when they could not give us a satisfactory answer.

This is a great idea, there are many Vets, retired policemen and firemen who would be willing to serve this way.

My questions are: Would they be paid? If so, by whom? All Volunteer? Perhaps some would opt for just having the Medical/Obamacare paid for.

If one of these were to be hurt/injured on the job, who is liable?

I know there are many who would just do it for FREE, that is noble, but job injury is a matter to be considered by all.

I don't think the Government will ever allow a VOLUNTEER to do this. Only Unions need apply.

At all costs, please DO NOT play into the meme that “police and the military are the only ones who can handle guns.” Hogwash!

That way lies martial law, jack-booted thugs and a furtherance of the police state that already scares hell out of a lot of us.

If somebody climbs out of an armored vehicle and kicks in your door wearing a uniform, helmet, body armor and combat boots, and carrying a full-auto weapon, then that is a soldier by anyone’s definition! And if he draws a government paycheck, then that makes him a government soldier.

In other words — a Redcoat. And we’ve had enough of them already.

(Perseverando — You do realize that Pookie18 used to post his Toons HERE, right? Just in case you didn’t know.)

This is exactly what I (and others) plan to propose here in Newtown when the conversation comes up, that and training/arming willing and able teachers.
