An Elegant Case for Martial Law at SchoolsSubmitted by tasmlab on Fri, 12/21/2012 - 15:10
A lot of us see the Sandy Hook incident as a reason for government to promote and implement gun control (perhaps not a planned conspiracy, but certainly opportunistically 'not letting a tragedy go to waste').
But it could be used to promote expanding TSA/DHS agents to the roughly 100,000 schools we have.
That would be a dandy way to condition the next generation of citizens to get used to living under martial law. Twice a day during 15 developmental years, children would get to pass through a government check point with some person in a uniform, gun, badge, cap'n crunch epaulets etc., showing paperwork, maybe putting their lunch box through the screening device, etc.
They could do this without much of a public debate. Nobody would have to scrutinize the 2nd amendment. The liberals could cheer it on, the neocons could hold their gun rights (for the time being).
Plus, think of the job creation the President could tout! 100,000 new, high-paying government jobs with the snap of a finger!
(I have no facts - this is just a made-up idea that dawned on me after reading the NRA post.)
