NRA calls for an armed
police officer in every school

New York Post, by Andy Soltis

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/21/2012 1:02:47 PM

The National Rifle Association spoke out today for the first time since the Newtown massacre - calling for armed security officers in all of the nation’s schools. “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” NRA head Wayne LaPierre said in Washington. He called on Congress to come up with the money to put an armed police officer in every US school. “If we truly cherish our kids more than our money … we must give them the greatest level of protection available, properly trained good guys” he said. The nation’s leading gun lobby had not commented in the week

Comments:
This to me is a very troubling response by the NRA. This sounds like the thinking when we hastily got the TSA officers at our airports. Will they be able to search our kids, hopefully with the school nurse or principal present?

This is a very bad idea.

This sounds a bit hysterical and knee jerk.
Wayne should relax, re-read the Constitution and rethink all this.

Didn´t watch, haven´t read the plan, but the headline is troubling.

The libs are having a field day on social media -- very critical of the NRA (dangerous, uncaring, helping the rich, unrealistic, etc.) and LaPierre (crazy, murderer, delusional)

I´m so tired.

The only thing proven to stop these crazies with guns is concealed carry people who will SHOOT BACK at the crazies! Get it? Quit whining and sober up!

For all of you criticizing LaPierre speech read it first.
Do not post comments based on media headliners, or comment of his speech.

The police in my town protect other public buildings, like the courthouse. Are lawyers more important than teachers and children?

I heard the very sensible NRA speech.

If arming guards in the schools spooks people then how about arming all adults in the schools with MACE or tasers. A giant can of pepper spray on the counter of each school office, alarms wired to the police departments and pepper spray in each classroom would be a start.

Why should Barri and Mooch have more protection than the children of this country? We should stop the waste of our money by them by keeping them in DC year round thus freeing money to protect future taxpayers.

Get over the hippie fantasy and protect our children at least as well as you protect our money.

Guns exist and the bad guys have them.

The airey-fairey delusion of "Gun Free" zones is just another liberal crack pipe dream.

Man up!

The headline is a deliberate lie.
Every private citizen can be an armed security guard. That is the point W. LaP. was making. He never used the words "police" or "officer" in this context.
So how did this deliberate, false, misleading lie get past editors?

I thnk that all schools should be entered only via guarded gatehouses. No exceptions. The gatehouses should have "dead man" switches which would alert the school office in case the persons manning them are killed or injured.

Every school should have a safe room for every four classrooms to which children can be taken and secured in the event of emergency or doubt.There should be frequent drills.

Thank you poster #7.

I see the trolls were just waiting for a chance to pounce on the NRA.

Every word was exactly right. We cannot allow the msm to characterize the NRA as the problem rather than the solution.

I expected LaPierre to affirm our 2nd Amendment rights and perhaps talk about the thousands of lives saved each year by every day citizens who use their guns to stop crime. As usual, the speech was a huge letdown. He sounded like a typical boring republican, kind of like John Boehner. I don`t think he won any friends or influenced anyone.

Another lost opportunity.

Where I live, we have School Resource Officers at all the high schools.
Do they need to be at ALL schools? Probably not. So why NOT have one, two or even three trained administrators and/or teachers who can readily access a firearm?

Why not?

The full speech is posted just above this article. You´re going to get a better idea of what he said from that than you will from this filtered garbage.

He´s right. We need armed responders in the schools. How to accomplish that is the only debate. I think volunteers from the staff should be armed and trained. Others may feel it could be accomplished a different way.

One thing´s for sure, the end of the Gun Free Zone should be immediate.

I´m ok with school official access to weapons. An armed police officer will be on break, the rest room, talking on the cell, sleeping in the cafeteria when called for.

Boiled down, it comes to this: the Kumbaya crowd believes in peace, love and gun free zones. They have established these zones where our children go to school, and we have had massacres. Now they want to try the experiment nationally, because the school experiment was such a success.

Do they prevail, or do we?

#16, go do a search on the Mississippi school shooting which occurred shortly after Columbine. A teacher went to the parking lot and got his firearm from his car and stopped the massacre. It does work.

Be careful what you ask for. All this will mean is more union members to do Obama´s bidding just like they did in Michigan -- ditto teachers. Keep guns out of the hands of the unions.

I am STILL waiting for information about the weapon/s used to massacre the victims.
Were they "assault weapons, weapons of war" or the 2 pistols as first reported. Was the rifle in the car or was it used for the killings. The press runs around like chickens without heads reporting nonsense, but so far, I have not seen this information forthcoming.
Teachers should be armed, if they so choose.

Many schools already have community resource officers (with guns) in them. No longer a big deal. They have been there since drugs became a problem in schools.

There´s a Powerline article, "An Opinion on Gun Control", posted today on this site. I think it´s better than what Wayne said and, yes, it suggests that teachers who would be willing, in a pinch, to uselessly throw themselves in front of a gun barrel are probably also willing to get a concealed carry permit and pack heat at school.

Not all schools have to have an armed person... but if some of them do, bad guys will think twice.

Obama signs Ted Cruz bill into law,

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement. "Nevertheless, as President [George H.W.] Bush also observed,

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces. Iranian state television quoted Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as saying that Iran has

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
