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

Original Article

Posted By:leopardtwo, 12/23/2012 9:47:44 AM

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.

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.

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,

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."

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
