When the rubber hits the road, when the stark and very real choice is either empty political posturing with useless gun control laws or doing something practical to protect your children, the only people laughing at the NRA are a media determined to protect anything and everything involving Barack Obama. Today the Newtown Board of Education made the only choice any parent can: It voted to put armed guards in its schools:
The vote, for now, only represents a request — it still needs to clear budget and logistical boundaries since the guards would come from the town's police resources as opposed to the school board itself. But the plan 'would put two eyes and ears -- one armed, one unarmed -- at each Newtown school,' reports Bronxville Patch's Davis Dunavin. The guards, officially called school resource officers (SROs), were already a fixture at all Newtown schools in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, but until this vote they were budgeted only to be a presence at middle and high Schools, according to NBC Connecticut.
The current push for gun controls by The State and its media is nothing more than another front in the relentless culture wars against Red State Americans and Bitter Clingers. None of the proposed laws would have stopped the Sandy Hook murderer, which should tell you everything you need to know.
Meanwhile, in Democrat-run Chicago, there's a Newtown every month. But the only solution to that problem would be admitting harsh gun control laws and liberalism run amok have failed. So the media would rather Chicago's monthly Sandy Hook goes on than ever admit to such an inconvenient truth.
The NRA proposed putting armed guns in schools, and now the school board closest to this tragedy agrees.
Keep laughing and ignoring Chicago, media. You’re only fooling your corrupt selves.
It really is telling when you consider that because of the spin of the lame-stream media virtually no one I have talked to realizes that, in fact, NO ASSAULT RIFLES WERE USED AT SANDY HOOK. If our politicians were so concerned about preventing another such attack wouldn't it make more since to at least address the actual facts of Sandy Hook? Even a simpleton with half a brain would think to look at what caused it in the first place if you were truly looking to prevent it from happening again. CLEARLY Sandy hook is just another of the exploited tragic events that the left has chosen as Rahm Emanuel has so famously been quoted as saying, "Never let a good tragedy go to waste". The desire of this white house and the democratic party is to further dis-arm law abiding citizens plain and simple.
