NRA Plan Is So Dumb That 1/3 of Public Schools Already Use It

On December 21, NRA President Wayne LaPierre issued a statement on the Newtown shootings. He proposed armed security on staff at all US schools.

The liberal media blasted LaPierre for proposing cops in public schools but forgot that Bill Clinton proposed the same thing back in 2000…
And one third of all public schools already use it.
National Review reported:

Nationwide, at least 23,000 schools — about one-third of all public schools — already had armed security on staff as of the most recent data, for the 2009-10 school year, and a number of states and districts that do not use them have begun discussing the idea in recent days…

    What fools… Everyone knows having armed guards doesnt stop killers….It only pisses off liberals…. Maybe we should double the guards!

  • Mike123

    The question someone should ask is why security at that school was handled by someone with an education degree and classroom background.

    The Newtown school board has alot more responsibility for what happened than the average American gun owner.

    albeit the entire speech worthy of repetition, tune
    in at the 16:45 mark and try not to self combust..

    “But do know this president zeroed out school emergency
    planning grants in last years budget, and scrapped secure
    our schools policing grants in next years budget”

    in light of this alone, and Obama’s well documented penchant
    for the Muslim Brotherhood Islamists, what’s there to worry
    about, i mean, how freakin’ dumbed down are we?? *sigh*

    Ah, what happen to the other 2/3 of public schools? Is Sandy Elementary School one of the 2/3 of public schools that don’t have police officers patrolling the campus?

    Hmmmm. Can’t be that stupid.

    The way you pay for it is to REDISTRIBUTE money from Adminstrators and Union Fees to pay for the police officers. Sounds good to me. If a Court uses baliffs to ensure nuts don’t act up, I think schools should have the same security.

    Only ‘A Good Guy With A Gun’ Can Stop School Shootings, NRA Says

    [“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy
    with a gun,” said Wayne LaPierre, NRA’s executive vice president.

    The NRA also said it is launching a “National School Shield” training
    program to help – at no cost – schools train security personnel and
    develop security plans.

    And, NRA officials blamed the news media for focusing on what they view
    as the wrong issue — guns — rather than violent video games and the
    nation’s mental health care programs.]

    and VIOLENT “RAP” CRAP!! 😡

  • Barbara Boxer (d) called for putting national guard in schools… libs silent.

    The American tragedy is that one third of our public schools have found it necessary to provide armed security.

    “Nationwide, at least 23,000 schools — about one-third of all public schools — already had armed security on staff as of the most recent data, …”

    AND just how many mass murders in those schools? HMM?

    JUST what I thought statistically irrelevant.

  • Patty

    They have guards here. So, it is rather laughable that you here liberals and some others think the idea is crazy or too expensive.

    Most politicians are hypocrites, they say and do one thing in public and then the opposite in private.

  • I graduated from high school in 1977, and way back then, we had an armed police officer patroling in our school in a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. Where have these people been?

  • Obamao

    “Most politicians are hypocrites, they say and do one thing in public and then the opposite in private.”

    They are not hypocrites, they are authoritarian thugs who literally get off on subjecting the ‘commoners’ to violations of their human rights (such as being able to defend oneself against a violent criminal).

  • Sandy

    Where are the attacks on the media? I guess you can’t kill the goose that lays the golden egg for the Dem Party. Tell you what Dems — when you admit that violent movies and video games cause people to kill — then we might talk guns.

  • Sandy

    Its not a tragedy for armed guards to protect schools. It prevents a tragedy from occurring. This is a violent nation and more people out of work make it more violent.

    Common sense tells us to protect our own first.

  • Sandy

    How come Obama doesn’t speak out on the murders of black kids in Chicago? A whole generation of kids are being gunned down and the White House is strangely silent.

    Every life should matter in this country — not just the lives that fit this weeks talking points.

  • YourMaster

    you know what I think liberals are more scared about…
    …that the idea of increased security or well trained staff (in guns next to education) in schools might actually decrease violence and prevent mass shootings at them and it might set the trend more against their anti-gun rhetoric

    you see… then, the libs can’t argue against the 2nd amendment anymore
    one of their core ideal: gun bans

    it’s extremely hard to dictate to people to disarm when guns end up being so effective as a great deterent to keep killers away, at bay, or dead.

    …and even when there is a shooting spree in schools, the casualities are likely to be minimal when there is someone right there with a gun to take down the killer after the first 5 mins the instant the spree starts.

    …that’s what the left is afraid of with the proposed idea of putting better trained staff for security in schools. …but I’m really surprised they would be against keeping our kids safe… I mean bill clinton even thought it was a good idea himself.

    what confounded gobbledegook.. 🙄


  • Bonnie

    Does the fact that at least one of the schools where students were shot down did have armed guards mean anything? Does it matter that most of the bad guys who did the shootings were considered good guys until then? Does it matter that military members and police officers are among the most likely to commit suicide with a gun as did many of the shooters? Does it matter that people who are not on medication or diagnosed with a mental disorder are statistically more likely to break under stress and commit one of these crimes than those who are under a doctor’s care and “known” to be mentally ill? Probably not.
