NRA Chief´s School Security
Ideas Worth Consideration

Second Amendment: When big-government politicians and their media allies team up to incite hysteria, any voice of reason is attacked as if it were crazed and evil. The latest victim heads the National Rifle Association. Tabloid "journalism" is no stranger to the gutter, or to serving the interests of the ever-expanding state. In 1975, for instance, the New York Daily News ran its infamous "Ford to City: Drop Dead" front-page headline, which ultimately led to President Ford caving in and bailing out the wasteful, corrupt New York City government. The tabloid´s agitation against Ford also helped him lose,

If American school children are indeed at such grave risk as to require armed guards at every school in the nation for their protection, stricter gun control begins to make sense. Advocates of armed guards do not seem to realize the choice is not EITHER more gun control OR armed guards. It would be perfectly logical to do both. They go together nicely.

The need to protect children from suicidal revenge-seeking spree killers like the Sandy Hook mass murderer is by no means obvious. How many such massacres of the innocents have we seen? Nor is it likely that a single conventionally armed guard could have done much to stop a heavily armed and determined killer with a high IQ. Very likely he or she would be cut down first in a hail of semi-automatic weapon fire. The Sandy Hook killer would not have been deterred by the knowledge such a guard was present. He would merely have planned for it and ambushed the guard first of all.

So would the Columbine High School killers, who planned and rehearsed their massacre for a year or more. They were smart kids. They would have known how to eliminate a guard. It would merely have been another interesting challenge to them.

Armed guards at all our schools are a symbolic solution to a non-existent problem. We would do better to accept the reality that in a nation of 300,000,000 people, rare episode of horrific violence are going to occur from time to time. They deserve our attention and warrant careful investigation; they should not cause panic and stampede the herd into sweeping policy changes based principally if not entirely upon emotion.

#2 seems to forget there are over 20,000 gun laws on the books already, and they haven´t helped a bit. Assault rifles were banned at the time of the Columbine massacre, but that didn´t help. Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws anywhere in the country, but yet more murders are committed there every year than the total of US dead in Afghanistan. Your president has sold guns to Mexican drug cartels, and weapons to the Syrian "rebels".
As for armed guards in the schools, all it would take is a couple of teachers trained in the use of firearms to be ready if needed. And with no knowledge as to which teachers are armed. Utah has had armed guards in schools for years. They aren´t having any problems.
If armed guards are such a bad idea, why does Obama send his kids to a school that has them? Why do so many liberal "elites" have armed bodyguards? If 20,000+ laws don´t stop the criminals, how is another law going to help?

We´re spending billions on airport security over the small chance a suicidal moron might take some kind of bomb on a plane. When you ask people about the intrusive pat downs and all that stuff,they say it´s worth it just to feel safe. There´s little difference between that and security guards in schools. If parents feel their kids are safer,that´s one less thing to worry about.

#3 has it right that legal concealed carry teachers and admin would provide the best protection and at a much lesser cost.This would also provide a better deterrent in that anyone may think twice before attempting such an atrocity on our children.

Concealed carry teachers can be implemented right now, the cost is minimal, and the bad guys would have no idea who was carrying. It is a win-win-win for any teacher that WANTS to carry protection with them.

The left is not going to listen to what the NRA has to say as they are on a mission to ban as many guns as possible, that´s their agenda. Besides the elite leftists don´t have to talk about school security, as their children generally attend high end private schools that already employ multiple armed security guards. The left is also not about to mess with the mental health community that is one of the identifiably constituency groups, or the mentally ill, who they consider to be disabled people deserving of help of course in return for votes.

The liberal press were oh so quick to put the NRA down for suggesting schools have armed guards. Let us not forget that 0bama sends his gils to an expensive school that has several armed guards. Hmmmmmm

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries

Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,

Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades.

Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections

Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people

Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
