NRA’s Solution — Cops in Every School

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”  Wayne La Pierre, head of the NRA, at his press conference today in response to the Newtown massacre.

Um, how about stopping that bad guy from getting the gun, so that he doesn’t ever become “a bad guy with a gun.”

Anyway, LaPierre’s solution is to have police officers in every single school in the country.

And for good measure, he blamed violent movies, video games and music videos.

So, the NRA wants more cops who will of course need more guns.  Since the NRA really represents gun manufacturers, that is a great solution to make its masters richer.

Sometimes you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, but this is really a moment to just scream at the top of your lungs.

    …and do they actually think they will have a bunch of retired people willing to work for free?

    I guess they could just cut services to children – who needs medicaid or food…or even teachers to teach them.

  2. I strongly disagree. It’s moving in the wrong direction.

    Oh, for the love of God….
    Have you ever been in a school? What happens when we take the kids to recess? What about the doors other than the main door? How is our one rent-a-cop going to match the firepower of the shooter with the 100 rounds a minute gun?
    Are you aware of the fact that in elementary schools we have to keep the “grown up scissors” in a safe place, away from the hands of the impulsive little kids?
    This was the most self-serving, cynical pile of crap I have ever heard.
    That’s the only way to make schools safe.
    The only way.
    Take it from a teacher with 28 years of school experience.

    Let’s just hand out Uzi’s the five year olds while we’re at it. That should “deter” the shooters, don’t you think?

    • On a much happier note, I just got a box of candy from Priscilla’s of Concord and Gardner. I’m sure you know them. I hate to think how much more I would weigh if I lived anywhere near that store.

        Oh, yeah……I live five minutes from the Gardner Store! I try to drive home a different way……
        Merry Christmas!

      • I had talked myself out of a hot fudge sundae and proudly driven past the ice cream store, then a few minutes later had talked myself out of a hot chocolate and gingerbread man and proudly driven past the bakery when I arrived home to found the Priscilla’s box on my doorstep. So I guess if you have an Appointment in Samara, or an Appointment with Chocolate, you have to bow to the inevitable.
        Merry Christmas to you and Paul and the children and dogs.

        And Merry Christmas to you and yours, my friend!
        Chocolate is our way of reminding ourselves that life is still good, fiscal cliff or no fiscal cliff!
