NRA calls for 'armed security' at every school

USA Today: WASHINGTON -- National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre said Friday that future school shootings like the one in Newtown, Conn., one week ago can only be prevented if schools have armed security guards, just as the Secret Service protects President Obama.

Guns were not to blame for the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 children and six adults last week, LaPierre said. "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with gun," LaPierre said at the news conference that was interrupted twice by anti-gun activists.

"Politicians pass laws for gun-free school zones," LaPierre said. "They issue press releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them. And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk."

What was the name

of that '80s tv movie were armed guards would drag failing students away from class and force them to work in underground mines? This reminds me of that.

employed by the STATE....

....means OBEDIENT to the state!

"Mr. (or) Mrs. so-and-so has a short temper...there is a history of ________ in their home(or, they're divorced)"

This is what the "armed guard" will be familiarizing themselves with while IDLE most of the day....profiling taxpayers and parents, while acclimating our "most precious children" to the police state psychologically; an armed guard(not private citizen free to conceal and carry) at every corner!

Our children's countenance will become that frowned face of those we see in impoverished nations of tyrant dictatorships!!!

We should have taken over the school boards, full of highly-degreed socialists who laud Marxism, and accept hansome payment and accolades for implementing social engineering...too late now!!! Prepare for the CHANGE.

It will look just like the black panther guys hanging out at polling places....psychological INTIMIDATION; this will NOT communicate a sense of "peace" or the idea that the children are in a "safer environment"...this will wreck another whole generation, encouraging dependance!!

"Armed Security"

"Armed Security" doesn't necessarily mean you have to hire a professional security guard that is armed. It mean security with someone that is armed. They even stated that they would offer free training. The way I read that article is that are saying what many of us are saying, you need to get rid of the gun free zone by having somebody there "armed", for some "armed security". If the school wants to hire a professional armed security agency they should and if they want to have a staff member assume this armed security detail, they would help in training them. That's what I get out of that small article. Also, very politically correct of them to say it that way, in my opinion. What I'm more interested in hearing is what the Obama team will come up with as a solution. That will be a joke I'm sure.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

I watched the press

I watched the press conference. They want armed security guards at the schools. No mention of allowing teachers to be armed. Instead, they have a Congressman who worked for DHS devising the plans they want to submit to the schools. The NRA specifically said that they wanted to see armed police or security guards at all the schools. Nothing about allowing teachers or other adults the option to be that school's defense.

In the article it says "the

In the article it says "the group's executive vice president, said the NRA would make its training programs available free of charge to help boost school safety." Why did they say this. Who would the free training be for? The "armed security guard"? I would think these guys have already been trained.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Home School

Where your kids are as safe as you make them.


"We protect our president with armed security, and we protect our banks with arm security, yet our most precious resource, our children go unprotected!"


When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

NRA pushing the meme that we can't be trusted to defend ourselves. We must have cops or military to do it for us. Nice sellout.

Life is a sexually transmitted disease with a 100% fatality rate.
Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

They're already prisons and

They're already prisons and re-education camps... I don't see what armed guards would change there.

Please visit my site for more information about my libertarian book. Thanks!

What part of "shall not be infringed"

...do people not get? So the NRA's stance is "let the government carry guns and no one else? This is no solution at all. This only furthers the idea that the government should be allowed weapons with which to rule an unarmed populace. It seems that the NRA is out of step with the second ammendment and therefor and enemy of liberty.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
