GUNS: Why DID everyone sneer when the NRA suggested protecting schools?

THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE 
Number 703, December 30, 2012 
“Put some nice, long, jaggedy teeth in the Bill of Rights”

Would SOMEBODY please explain this to me?

Let me preface this by saying I don’t support the NRA. They do more harm to the pro-gun movement by collaborating on the creation of gun laws. I do not support public schools. I believe them to be liberal indoctrination stations, little more than state mandated jails for the young. It is the duty of parents to provide for the education of their children, not to simply surrender control of their children for 8 hours a day to union-backed imbeciles. I home school. I am not a christian. I am, in fact, an agnostic at most, an atheist more likely. I am the type of Libertarian the Libertarian Party hates. I am vehemently in favor of eliminating 99% of gun laws. So, now you know where I stand. I am NOT going to discuss gun ownership here. That is fodder for another article. Arguments over whether people should be permitted to own guns are off topic and will be deleted. Stick to the question asked, please. Feel free to answer the polls, and explain your answers in a comment. Now, to the question I need answered.

Would someone PLEASE explain to me why it is an evil thing to suggest we need armed guards in all public schools. Please note- I don’t necessarily mean POLICE guards. Just trained, armed guards. It can be teachers, janitors, volunteers, security guards from private security services, or even National Guardsmen doing their 2 weeks a year. We do not have a problem with armed guards in banks and armored cars. We don’t have a problem with armed guards at our courthouses and public buildings. We don’t have a problem with armed guards at our airports. But we DO have a problem with armed guards protecting our most valuable possessions~ Our children. I am an armed American. I have a CCW. I have training in the use of firearms, in proper concealed carry, and when NOT to use a weapon. I paid for it myself, because I feel it is necessary if I am going to carry. I got the training years ago, when I lived where it was not required to get a license to carry open, and easy as hell to get a CCW. Now, where I currently live, I needed nothing but a Hunter Safety card and references to get my CCW ( which is more than I think is permitted under the 2nd Amendment, but I digress). I carry quite often. Even though I homeschool, I would volunteer a day or two a week to stand guard over your children. I wonder why so many of you consider this somehow abhorrent. Our money, our court system, our government buildings, and our president are somehow more worthy of the expense of protecting than your children are.

Please tell me why!!!

Beats the hell out of me. Works for the Isrealis, and they live in war zone. Seems like common sense to me!

Armed and educated

*** begin quote ***

It took the NRA a week to come up with this? The National Rifle Association, after a week of silence, today suggested that posting armed guards at schools was the best approach the nation could use to protect stuents. And, surprise, it pointed its finger at the same alleged causes it always blames: “video games, the news media and lax law enforcement.” As The New York Times reported, “It offered no new proposals to restrict firearms.”

 

 *** end quote ***

Sorry, but the world is and has always been a dangerous place. Wishing will not make it otherwise. So we create “schools” and “protect” them with “laws”.

Argh!

Why not learn from the Israelis? Allow school personel or anyone to be armed in and around a school. Allow trained grandparents and family to “volunteer” at the schools.

Why can’t we have better mental health care for these sad individuals. Yes, they have “rights”. But when they are a danger to themselves and others? Isn’t that like “fire” in a crowded theater?

Why can’t we have a real inquiry into the impact of psychotropic drugs on these sad individuals?

Why can’t we have studies with actionable conclusions about violent video games and movies?

It’s not a prevalent as we think it is, but that doesn’t mean we should NOT insist on meaningful actions. “Banning scarey weapons” accomplishes NOTHING.
