Jersey town adopts schoolhouse glocks
New York Post, by Susan Edelman

Original Article

The leafy, well-heeled New Jersey suburb will station a permanent armed cop in each of its nine schools starting Jan. 2. It’s apparently the first district nationwide bent on packing heat in every schoolhouse since madman Adam Lanza gunned down 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14. “We’ve made a collective decision as a town that we need armed security in each of our schools,” Mayor Jonathan Hornik told The Post.

And let´s not forget Gabby Giffords comments following the vandalism at one of her campaign offices.

She bragged that she was quite good with her Glock.

The msm would also have us forget that it was President Clinton who began the cops in schools program following Columbine.

The hypocrisy is disgusting.

Good news, and maybe their cops will be distracted from ticket blitz.

Disagree. It´s a stupid waste of money based on wishful thinking, and gives the left yet another well-meaning idea to deride.

Schools should allow - and announce - concealed carry instead.

Reason: In an otherwise gin-free zone protected by an armed cop, the madman knows he can surprise and outgun that cop in seconds. This leaves the unarmed teachers and children sitting ducks for at least 5 uninterrupted minutes of his murder and mayhem. The gun-free zone rigs a sick mental arcade game in the madman´s favor, and he knows he can earn a high score and resulting fame.

With concealed carry, the madman is aware an adversary might emerge out of the blue within seconds. He can´t play a cowardly, rigged, high scoring game there. He´ll play someplace else.

I agree that concealed carry would be preferable, but this will work in Jersey because there will be so many schools who will not have armed guards. The nut job will choose one of those.

Add bonus pay for voluntary staff with CCW and extra training. It´s not as high a budget item as hiring another person, and may be even more effective.

Our county has been doing this for at least a decade. And one more time - does #6 really think that Lanza would have even entered the parking lot at Sandy Hook if there had been a police car parked at the entrance to the school? As soon as he heard the sirens of approaching LEO´s, he shot himself.

First I heard of an "armed guard" AT Columbine HS.

FTA: Despite an armed guard at Columbine HS, students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 15 and wounded 23 in their rampage in 1999. A sheriff’s officer outside the school exchanged fire with Harris but missed him.

Oh, Pardon me. He was a "sheriff´s officer outside" shooting in. So let´s get this straight. Does no good to have an "armed guard" in our schools..., er, "outside the school."

How far outside?

What rotten reporting!!!!!

It´s good that local areas make their own minds up about this.What´s surprising is the left being reluctant about hiring government workers when that´s all they think about usually.

Just about all the schools where I live have an on duty cop during the school day.It´s not just in case some nut job goes off but to help with unruly bastids in the hallways.

#14: Also, the police in Columbine had a rule that they set up a perimeter and wait for SWAT before they engage. So kids were getting killed while the cops were basically doing busy work. Those rules, of course, have changed. Does anyone think the protocols for the armed guard stayed the same?

It´s called living and learning. Adaptation. Democrats don´t do that so they can´t understand it.

I lived in Newtown several decades ago and as I recall the PD there had cops in the schools often. They were there to build community relations. The kids grew up interacting with the police. Good idea. They also had a uniformed patrol officer in the local shopping center just being there and being helpful. When the local JayCees did a bike rally the PD assigned us a liason and were extremely helpful. Everybody in town knew the officers. We had very little in the way of crime.

That is correct. The monster was willing to shoot children, but the monster was not willing to confront good men with guns who came to stop him.

As an Board of Education member in the next county over....we too will be adding a armed member in each of our schools. While one armed member may not end the crazy needless killings, it will gain vital minutes until back-up arrives. The false thinking that a ban on assault weapons will solve the issue of gun violence is of the same thinking that leaving your home unlock will add security to your family!

I´ve been a Resource Officer (armed cop)in our school district since 2005, and I was the third one since it´s inception.

And I don´t run around in a uniform all the time. Sometimes I dress like the teachers and the only thing you see is the weapon and a badge on my belt...

Gee, I´ve also been known to wear a hoodie to be able to ´blend in´ more when I´m walking the halls.

Oh, and to those of you who think it doesn´t work...sour grapes....!

I´m with #12, multiple trained & certified volunteer staff who would have access to weapons would be a far more effective deterent than a single officer (target). We do not need extra police officers and the last thing we need is a Federal, TSA type program. Keep it local, post the fact prominently, any nutcase would not know know who, or how many he would face.

The main problem with this approach is that it makes good sense, so unlikely to be used.

I agree with those who say trained and armed staff are the answer. My wife is a teacher, a licensed concealed carrier and a darned good shot. Plus she has damned good common sense. I would trust her in any situation.

"apparently the first district nationwide bent on packing heat"

That´s not exactly truthful. Many schools in this state have community service police officers in them and have since drugs in schools became popular.

Secret US-Iran talks
set stage for nuke deal
Associated Press, by Bradley Klapper*    Original Article
Posted By: Leopardtwo- 11/24/2013 9:44:18 AM     Post Reply
Washington — The United States and Iran secretly engaged in a series of high-level, face-to-face talks over the past year, in a high-stakes diplomatic gamble by the Obama administration that paved the way for the historic deal sealed early Sunday in Geneva aimed at slowing Tehran’s nuclear program, The Associated Press has learned. The discussions were kept hidden even from America’s closest friends, including its negotiating partners and Israel, until two months ago, and that may explain how the nuclear accord appeared to come together so quickly after years of stalemate and fierce hostility between Iran and the West.

Annapolis Alderman Ross Arnett insists the City Council´s decision to take another look at making the mayor´s job a more ceremonial role has nothing to do with party politics. But if the Democrat-majority council acts to remove the mayor´s power, the timing will coincide with the election of Annapolis´ first Republican mayor in nearly two decades, Mike Pantelides, who defeated the incumbent Democrat, Mayor Josh Cohen, last week.

Armed teachers, guards key

Americans intent on ensuring a school massacre like the one in Newtown, Conn., never happens again could learn a lot from Israel, where the long menu of precautions includes armed teachers. The Jewish state, which has long faced threats of terrorist strikes in crowded locations including schools, takes an all-of-the-above approach to safety in the classroom. Fences, metal detectors and armed private guards are part of a strategy overseen by the country’s national police.

In May, Richard V. Wilson approached a female neighbor on the street and shot her in the back of the head, a crime that stunned their quiet Katonah neighborhood. What was equally shocking for some was the revelation that the mentally disturbed 77-year-old man had amassed a cache of weapons — including two unregistered handguns and a large amount of ammunition — without any neighbors knowing. “I think that the access to guns in this country is ridiculous, that anybody can get one,” said a neighbor of Wilson’s who requested anonymity because it’s not known whether the gunman,

The marathon will not take place in storm-ravaged New York City this Sunday, Mayor Bloomberg announced late Friday. Bloomberg had defended his decision to hold the 26.2-mile race as scheduled on Sunday, although many New Yorkers complained it would be insensitive and divert city resources at a time when many are suffering. Bloomberg earlier in the day said the marathon would "give people something to cheer about in what has been a very dismal week for a lot of people." But after growing criticism, the event was put off. "The marathon has always brought our city together and

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
