NRA: School Security Only Possible With Armed Good Guys

The NRA has finally jumped the shark. Thanks to Wayne LaPierre for honestly providing us with his dystopian vision of the future. Now, can we finally return to a conversation among the adults?

People here have been trying to have an adult conversation with you for some time. You refuse to participate at anything other than a grade-school level. You are not the only one on your side, or mine, like this.

lois, you are part of the problem, not the solution. You want to see law abiding Americans disarmed, and you think that the loss of that liberty will result in more security. Well, it won't. Anyone who believes it will is either stupid or has another agenda in mind.

Dystopian? While I am aware that childeren die daily due to a variety of causes, one aspect of Newtown I have had difficulty dealing with is the scale of fear and helplessness those childeren felt as this anomaly of nature pulled the trigger. It does not get any more "dystopian" than that. Again, sociopaths and criminals care not what society dictates to them. Do not forget that Tim McVeigh killed 168 people with a rental truck and fertilizer. Nineteen of the victims were under the age of 6. I for one would be happy to volunteer my time to protect the childeren in my community while they attend school. Protecting our childeren, that is what "adults" do.

And lets add to what Isgau8 stated. When Tim McVeigh blew up the Murrah building, killing all of those innocent men women and 19 children under the age of 6 in the day care center, who did the liberals blame? Farmers who use nitrogen (assault) fertilizer? Truck drivers who use highly explosive and deadly diesel fuel? Nope. They blamed the NRA. I seem to see an illogical pattern in the minds of nutcases, otherwise known as "progressives".

You're delusional, also, you're not interested in protecting children.

Why do you hate children?

His argument that every other public place is provided with armed security gets nowhere with you. Leaves no boubt who has jumped the shark here, lois.

lois take your love of mass murderers elsewhere. The NRA has it EXACTLY right, no matter what condoners of baby killers such as yourself think.

During their first press conference since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last week in Newtown, Conn. leaders from the National Rifle Association offered the country a National School Shield Safety Program as an immediate way to protect children from violent killers during a press conference today in Washington D.C.

“While some have tried to exploit the tragedy for political gain, we have remained respectfully silent,” NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said. “Nobody has addressed the most important pressing and immediate question...How do we protect our children today?”

LaPierre discussed in detail an...
