Proposing the National School Shield http://nraschoolshield.com/
Lots about a new NRA program... Asa Hutchinson to head it.
NOT ONE DAMN WORD ABOUT FIGHTING AGAINST THE NEW BANS BEING CALLED FOR.
Let’s make the White House and a 500 foot perimeter surrounding the kenyan a gun free zone. Good enough for my 6 year old girl, good enough for a marxist kenyan.
Here’s hoping they don’t sell out.......
Incidents like Newton are fortunately, incredibly rare, random acts. A child has a GREATER chance of being killed in a school bus ( either in a traffic accident, or being hit by a car while getting on or off the school bus) than by a crazed gunman.
So, shall we now ban school buses?
Think all the Rat politicians will disarm their bodyguards? Think they will have to call 911 and wait for police to arrive if they are under attack?
POLL NEEDS FREEPING:
Did you recently or will you soon buy a gun?
Yes, for self-defense.
Yes, before regulations increase.
Yes; I was just planning to.
I’m thinking about it.
No, I don’t need to or don’t want one.
No way; they should all be banned.

Basically does the same thing, but does it with local carry permit holders amongst the Staff in our schools. Works in conjunction with local law enforcement and requires no monetary outlay by the school District.
Exactly. In liberal land...armed protection for politicians, celebrities, and media buildings = a good thing, while armed protection for kids = a bad thing.
They have played it very “close to the vest” and I trust they may reveal more at 6 this evening. Is that still on?
I don’t think it’s stupid at all. Let’s, instead of uselessly sending billions of dollars to the likes of Egypt, invest that money into something that would actually work. Banks and armored cars are protected by guns, why not our children?
There is no announced specific gun(s) “ban” yet ... just rumor (which we know will end up being true) that there will be an attempt to ban certain guns. IMO, they are keeping their powder dry until they see exactly what Biden, et al will propose. The Leftists will over-reach and there will be plenty of ridiculousness to oppose. To make assumptions now will just give the media/Obama/Biden ‘ammunition’ to say that the NRA is unreasonable, etc. Let the Leftists put their “ban” proposal on the table first, then hit it head on with the outrage from gun owners that will ensue.
As I said the other day...we better start fighting this with all we’ve got. NRA — FAIL!
The NRA will wait to see what Biden and his cronies come up with. Right now it’s about addressing the schools. What’s wrong with that?
Don't be silly -- of course, the NRA will fight them -- it didn't need to be said.
I thought he made some very good points, especially (paraphrasing) "We protect our money in banks with armed guards, we protect our politicians with armed guards, we protect our towns with armed police, but not only do we not protect our children, but the politicians have designated and advertised their schools as gun-free zones, so that insane killers know that they can go into the schools to kill our children with no fear of armed opposition."
I thought the press conference was great. I thought LaPierre did a great job. This was not the time to act beligerent. This was not the time to begin any type of negotiations, especially as there is NOTHING to negotiate. If you want to negotiate my 2nd Amendment then I get to negotiate your 1st Amendment. Fair? LaPierre correctly pointed to the moral rot in our society, such as the Kindergarten shooting game, Natural Born Killers, Kill Bill, etc. No one on the Left talks about this because they are made up of Lefties. After the recent election the Left are FULL of themselves and this is their opportunity to go after us, period. This will not stand! Actor Jamie Foxx no doubt would restrict law-abiding citizens gun right. No doubt, Jamie Foxx hates the NRA. Yet, Jamie Foxx recently told a national audience of young adults that, “I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?” Make no mistake, this is about the Left effecting damage to Conservatives, nothing more.
Dunno. Now that they’ve had this “time of respect” for the victims... They need to get out there and hit any new gun ban proposals hard.
Where have all the Charlton Hestons gone?
Did I see and hear that loud mouthed kook Medea Benjamin acting out her mental illness?
They're proposing a "smart" alternative.
