Skip to comments.Report: Obama to propose federal funding for armed guards in schools
Posted on 01/16/2013 7:11:38 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
Knowing that any huge gun bill is doomed in Congress, and aware that he needs to show America how eager he is to Do Something, The One lurches towards plan B i.e. including Wayne LaPierres proposal for more federally-funded security in schools as part of his package of recommendations on reducing gun violence:
Mark Knoller✔ @markknoller 16 Jan 13
"Pres Obama will also propose federal funds for schools to provide armed police security."
I guess the ad worked, huh?
The left mocked this idea after LaPierres presser last month because more school security guards does nothing to achieve their goal of reducing gun ownership among the population. (Im keen myself to hear from Obama and the NRA what other spending we should cut to pay for this.) But it polls well with the public: According to Pew, more Americans favor this than banning assault weapons or high-capacity magazines. If youre O, why not toss it out there and see how Republicans react? Incorporating an NRA suggestion will make the Democratic bill look that much more reasonable and bipartisan. Now the balls in the GOPs court to either pass something along these lines, which gives Obama a limited political victory, or torpedo it and endure the inevitable Republicans wont even listen to Wayne LaPierre on gun violence news stories.

Fine prints, people.
Trust nothing from this turd.
There you go—the domestic army that Obama promised before his first term in office.
Anyone who claims he isn’t effective in achieving his goals just doesn’t understand what he is aiming for.
They will of course also be allowed to unionize..
ding! ding! ding!
i told my wife this the other day....a chance to spend more money and increase the unions!
So the central government is completing the takeover of local school districts.
Why federal funding?
Can not the local areas pay for themselves?
Typical lib “thinking”.
CW-II, it’s a comin’, folks.
Dark times, indeed.
Why can’t more people see clearly?
Everyone knows Obomas kids have armed guards. Imagine if he tried to deny that to American citizens.
No, the Republicans don't have to offer Oboma anything. His kids are protected, so every ones kids should get the same protections without question. End of debate.
NO.......We do not need the FERAL Government permission to provide security for our schools.
State/County/City control and funded.
The FERAL Government can pound sand.
Exactly. We don't need a federal force to do what communities can do instead. There are retired volunteers who will work for free!
We're heading for a bond market crash, and a depression is coming. This nation cannot afford any more run away spending or more government oppression.
“Why? Don't you want to protect The Children?” In Carney's words, to save even one child's life ......
How about “Vets 1st”....But not a Federal Call...a District Call...
P.S. All letters are printed......BECAUSE THESE KIDS DON'T KNOW HOW TO "WRITE" !!!
That's an excellent idea. Each school district can take care of it's own. There's no need for the fed to get involved at all. The ex-military personal are already members of the community.
On the federal level, the cost of security would sky rocket because of all the middle men. On a local level, the funds would go directly to the soldier. There would be no massive government waste.
Kids have no idea whats going on. They were told to write those letters. In fact, the parents probably told them what to write.
My guess is the "parents" are a huge Oboma supporters and anti-gun activists.
This whole "kids" thing is such a farce. Anyone who can't see through this one is an idiot.
If Oboma really cared so much for children, he wouldn't have referred to them as a "punishment" during the abortion debate!!!
A great opportunity to get the kiddies used to being watched by the police for the forthcoming totalitarian state in their futures...
Just wait. One of these guards will “unexpectedly” go over the edge and murder a bunch of kids and/or parents. And then, “Oh my! We told you it was those guns! We MUST ban guns because there is no other option!”
When you only care about control/domination and not people, there is no limit to the theater that can be staged for public consumption.
Kierstin Powers mocked and laughed at NRA’s Wayne LaPierre on the Fox News Panel when he proposed this. I wonder if she’ll be so childish tonight?
Because her lord and savior is all for more government spending and oppression, she'll just say her thinking has "evolved."
NOOOOO!! None of my money for schools 2000 miles away. Not for guards, not for books, not for teachers. NO!
And it won't cost 47% of the population one penny.
The naturally paranoid side of me sez...
There has got to be a hidden agenda behind the Fed wanting to provide armed guards. They will likely have a major “assault” killing one or more of these guards only to say...
“We tried. It did not work. We are the best and you evil gun owners are at fault. TAKE ‘EM ALL!”
I think that 47% just been upgraded to more like 52%
Did Wayne ask for FEDERAL FUNDS to pay for guards???
Seems to ME the LOCALS would know best what is needed....not every problem requires a federal solution.
Obama and his moron cult can just get out of the way.
That's right. Give the LOCAL vets a job. No $$$ middle men from Washington to drive up the cost, either.
My bro and I were little when my father and ALL 8 of my uncles went to war, WWII.
Here in upstate NY, Despite air raids and tanks rolling down our street, war was NEVER talked about in front of us. That was private conversation among adults.
LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE !!!
