NRA: Arm Teachers! Let's Arm The Kids, Too! What We Need Is More Guns!

NRA Solution For School Shootings

Source

300 Million Guns Are Not Enough! Let's Have Guns In Every School And Classroom!

Let's arm our teachers! For the last week, in conservative blogs and on Fox News, where the finest brains of America go to solve our nation's most complex problems, we have heard about how arming teachers is the answer to school violence. And today, at a news (?) conference, the NRA says we need policemen or armed guards in every school and have teachers armed. Yet, little more than a week ago, before the massacre in Newtown, teachers were being called lazy, incompetent, selfish and out only for themselves. Now, the conservative blogosphere as well as the premier lobbyist for gun companies, the NRA, want all of these supposedly incompetent ne'er-do-wells to become Rambos of the playground. We are to believe that all of these "incompetent" teachers are to strap on a leather holster and engage in shoot-outs with the sickest in our society. What should we arm them with? Well, according to the smartest man (NOT) in Congress, Louie Gohmert from Texas, M-4's would work nicely. So, along with their teaching credentials on graduation day, let's hand them all a gun so they can shoot off the heads of would be mass killers. Of course, if a wanna be teacher can't shoot straight, he or she simply can't qualify to become a teacher.

Living In The Cuckoo's Nest!

The people advocating this craziness have finally stopped flying over the cuckoo's nest; they have moved in and taken up permanent residency. Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice-president for the NRA has been living in the cuckoo's nest for a long time. Apparently, he is not leaving anytime soon. The only time LaPierre ever leaves his nest (he is still a cuckoo) is when one of his members who may also be in elected office strays away from NRA philosophies. Then if that elected politician dares to speak up for any legislation that might negatively affect the sale of guns, LaPierre will have them removed from office... His large lobbying group will spread lies about the once loyal candidate and ruin his or her political career. NRA enforcement makes the Mafia look like a ladies' church group made up of goodie-two-shoes.

In the spirit of 'cuckoo nest syndrome', I suggest that we go a step further: Let's arm the students, too. Instead of Math and Science classes, substitute the class Assault Rifles 101. La Pierre says that the NRA has youth gun training programs. After all, if all kids AND all teachers are armed, schools will be safer. In fact, arm everyone! If kids don't own their own guns, as they enter school each morning they can be issued one, to be returned at the end of the day. Don't invest in library books, buy guns! And if the policeman at the door doesn't survive a shooter's initial hail of bullets, the kids and teachers will be there to back him up!

And let's not forget about pre-schools! Of course, the little ones will have to have smaller guns. Not enough protection? Modify the baby guns with clips that can hold 30 or 100 rounds.

Movie theaters, the same. As you pick up your popcorn and drink, grab a theater-issued gun! This way, if some crazy decides to start shooting or talking on their cell phone, everyone has a better chance of survival.

Shopping malls? Bring your guns! That way if you are in line and someone starts shooting or takes cuts, blow 'em away!

Churches? There have been shootings at churches, too! Before you pass the collection plate, pass out the guns!

LaPierre insists that, "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

NRA Blames Media, Video Games, Movies -Not Guns- We Need More Guns!

If you thought that the NRA would actually contribute something of value to the conversation on common sense gun legislation, you, of course, were wrong! The NRA is a front for the corporations that produce and sell guns and nothing more. More guns, more money!

Guns just don't kill people---today LaPierre said that the media kills people, video games kill people and the movie industry kills people. He is one smart man! He never even entertained the notion that guns actually kill people because they don't... Policemen armed with guns never die and are never shot. Security guards armed with guns always survive assaults.

The answer to mass shootings is so simple. The only viable answer is more guns!

Jillian....So much debate going on. So much controversy has been stirred up and justifiably so. I was taken aback by the solution/suggestion, offered by the NRA. Not exactly what people wanted to hear. IMO, it was not even presented well nor was it the correct time.

Emotions are so raw. An entire country is in total shock and grief....Families are still burying their babies. I don't think I've ever been so deeply effected by any of the public tragedies, as this one. And of course, we know everyone is hurting, everywhere.

Heaven only knows where this is all going to go, Jillian. What will eventually come out of this egregious explosion to our trust and peace of mind?

As a Nation, we need to be horrified and ashamed at the outrageous statistics.........As parents and grandparents, we can sit idly by, no longer. Our precious babies deserve protection....deserve to feel safe and cared for.

Thank you for this stunning article, Jillian. I relate and share your thoughts. I have had an aversion to "guns," in general, my entire life.......UP+++

Great hub, Jillian! I noticed, also, that LaPierre did not suggest how we pay for armed police officers at the school. It was amazing to me that he suggested the problem is not the second amendment, but the first amendment.

Please excuse the link that follows, if you will. It is relevant in that it depicts a common citizen offering a better solution to the problem than did one of the leaders of the NRA:

Thank you! When I saw the picture of three beautiful children holding weapons, I was horrified!

I agree with you. This has affected me more deeply than any of our nation's other tragedies as well. This is such a complicated issue, with so many other factors coming together to form this perfect storm.

I don't believe in taking away people's guns, but no one has been able to answer why they need assault weapons or why anyone needs clips that can hold 100 rounds.

I saw the look on my 10 year old grandaughter's face when she heard this on the news. I can't even describe it, but I will never forget it!

Dear Tom,

Thank you for the video! Most of America used to watch "All In The Family"!

So many people suggested that LaPierre would attack the 1st amendment- I did not think so- Boy! Was I wrong!

Great Hub, Jillian. This NRA solution reminds me of Nazi Germany. Hitler enlisted the children to spy on the adults. Here the NRA is blaming everyone else for their obsession with preserving all of their weapons at our security expense.

Dear Howard,

LaPierre's solution was no solution at all. It was an evasion of the issues. The NRA is a front group, lobbyists for the gun manufacturers- they remind me of ALEC- wouldn't be surprised if they work hand in hand, especially with ALEC's promotion of stand your ground laws.

Than you, Lela!

I wish you a wonderful holiday season-

Incredible - wasn't it? And 'he'? Arrogant so and so! no questions??? wow..

personally - i'm not against having a policeman or ex-military guy at every school in this day and age - at least they're trained. But TEACHERS? beyond the ridiculous..

like you, im not against 'guns' either per se - i'm against civilians owning guns that should only be in the hands of people who kill other people for a living..(sigh - now - what's wrong with THAT sentence...) NOT any joe blow from mexico, you know? I'm against guns that can blow away 50 people with a tug or 2 on the trigger - WHY isn't this NRA dipshit concerned about that little factoid AT ALL? Not a word? sheer unmitigated arrogance! He truly believes he's untouchable..

We shall see!

Now.. having had my morning vent - i'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year..

omg..

Greetings, Jillian Does the NRA position pass the straight face test, afraid not. This entire affair is ludicrous. I know that much of your position is sarcasm, but I don't know how fully grown supposidly mentally competent people are advocating it in all seriousness.

As with so many other concepts, the political right consistently remains out of touch with a society struggling to civilize itself.

BTW, I provided an address for Kona coffee check out the recent reply to my 'armed camp' article

You have to love it when the anti gun minds justify the cause be the, ' either -or "extremes ! Where does anyone say arm all the teachers , I agree , many of them are incompetant and couldn't even hold it by the right end ! But one armed guard trained for this very thing ? No huh . Why then do you allow armed protection for your cops , your governor ,your president ?........but not your kids ? Ya right great hub .....Not!

@ahorseback---Much of the conversation from gun rights advocates has been centered around having security guards or policemen stationed at our nation's schools. The conversation has also included arming teachers. Sorry that you have missed that! Check out some conservative websites -even take a look at The Examiner.

I am not anti-gun. I own a gun and no one is trying to take away your guns. There is however, some compromise that is reasonable, in my opinion. Ammo clips with 30, even 100 rounds are unacceptable for the civilian population. Law enforcement and the military have a distinctly different classification than the civilian population. Tell me why you, as a civilian, need to be able to have clips with that many rounds? Tell me why you need an assault rifle? I am tired of people assuming that just because many of us want reasonable limits and gun show loopholes closed that we are out to confiscate all guns.

I actually dom't own an assualt weapon as you know it ! However I undestand why ,for instance why a returning younger soldier might like them , its merely one style of a gun , "an assault weapon "can be ANY gun . A single shot rifle such as the rifle in "Quiggly down under " can be shot 10 - 15 times a moment ! Is that then an assault weapon ? A shotgun capable of killing many people with one shot , is that then an aassualt weapon ?There is too much dialog by people knowing really nothing about guns !

While I agree with you on say, the clips , the loopholes , the idiousy of our revolving doored legal system is more to blame than any thing else , including guns! Why do we allow plea bargains , why do we not agree that punishment is a good thing . Why are violent criminals sitting in open cells on computors getting masters degrees and we pay for it ? You want to know whats wrong with our system ? ....Its the mamby pamby way we treat all crime in America . Defense attorneys , The ACLU and its clueless causes . The lazy an ineptitude legal and policing system in this country is where to point fingers at and who's to blame , yet thats too complicated for us to see this ! So ......what do we do ? We point our niave fingers at an anianimate piece of plasic or iron and say .......Its the clips fault ! ........ Not at liiberal actist judges ! Not at the revolving doors of usless legal systems ! And why do you point it there ??? Because thats the simplest , easiest way for you and many many others to get closure for your part in the system ! Simply to clear yourself of guilt ? Maybe ! .....By the way the picture above proves this , its really despicable ! And .....you put it there .

You are ABSOLUTELY right, ahorseback! It's the "idiousy" of our revolving door legal system, and it's plea bargains, and activist judges, and panzi Liberals, and this whole INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY clause in the Constitution. I mean, come on! How could WE ALL MISS THESE issues as the REAL REASON why mentally disturbed, social outcasts (who are experiencing extreme personal issues in their lives), WHO HAVE NO PREVIOUS CRIMINAL RECORDS, go out to Walmart, and or their local gun supply shop and then go and take out as many people as they can before pulling the trigger on themselves?

OBVIOUSLY legal laziness is the reason! How CAN WE ALL BE SO STUPID AS TO MISS THAT CONNECTION??? Come on people!!

I mean, that's what were really saying RIGHT? ;)

Tom,

Thank you for the link. Many gun advocates have called for gun-toting teachers. If there is a solution to mass killings, it is probably not more guns-my opinion.

ahorseback and Thankful for You,

So now it is the ACLU, activist judges, etc. that are the cause of mass shootings? This is some twisted logic...

ahorseback, I am glad you found the picture despicable. I did, too, and that is why I used it.

Mass shootings are more than just a gun issue. Mass shootings are a mental health issue, too. It is my contention that more guns will not solve the problem. This is an issue that has many contributing factors and we must tackle it in a comprehensive, thoughtful manner.

My first instinct was that you were being sarcastic-and had to read your comment a couple of times before I responded---but lately I have been seeing and hearing your comment repeated by so many supposedly serious people that I doubted my gut! You got me! In fact, I read your article: http://thankfulforyou.hubpages.com/hub/The-Gospel-... I thought, how could someone who wrote that article actually believe the comment he has just made?

Thank you- everytime I doubt my gut, I am wrong! I have gone back and re-read your comment----If nothing else had clued me in, it should have been the disdain for "Innocent until proven guilty" concept. But then...

I am gonna blame it on post-Christmas exhaustion!

LaPierre was insulting and many of his references to video games were very out of date. Unfortunately, I'm afraid many NRA members are not tough enough to question their undisputed leader. Nor Congressmen. I think something will pass in the way of a law-- but way too porous.

No of course "more guns are not going to fix anything "......I agree , but the right gun could have . Look at this case , I mean everything was in order , school security ! His mother took him out of school apparently ! The front door was locked ! A glass door ??? At first they said he was "buzzed into the school "? There are just far far too many issues here that need to be adressed , And I believe too many people point to the easy one and say There ......there , is the problem !. And yet , it keeps happening over and over again . The first school massacre in america was about a hundred years ago in the midwest where a man used dynamite to blow up the school . My problem is I get disgusted at the same old-- same old emotional rants about a very serious situation . Heres one for you , have you ever had to tryed to deal with someone with mental issues ? As far as getting them help , or especially getting them commited for help ! I have , and it is extremely difficult to do !

Some real actions to stop kids from being victims !

-put seat belts on school busses

- mandatory helmits on bycicles

-control illicit drug use

- hide your prescription drugs or lock them up

- lock up your licquor cabinets

- teach your kids to have empathy for others instead of promoting

eletism, bullying and the extreme coddling of entitlements

In other words There is far far too much parental" babying" in our culture today . these monsters of such abysmal behavior are being created in the homes of doting or absentee parents where there is absolutely no accountability for anything ! These kids are being nurtured to such behaviors . it not like their in need of a exorsism ! We are creating this !..............:-}


Thankful for YOU profile image

Thankful for YOU 3 years ago

I sincerely DO agree with ahorseback on this one. Let me tell you guys something, and this is 100% true; when I was 12 years old, my mother and father left the house for work one morning. Having some free time before my school bus came, I decided to show the drug abusing older bullies from my street who had the REAL POWER by going into my dad's closet, unlocking his 7mm Winchester hunting rifle with a scope, and walking out my driveway with it (unloaded and pointed up in the air) to prove a point, should anyone want to have something to say to me (as I was pretty much left alone, but my little buddies kept getting harassed by this one stoner!) The bus stop was a couple of houses down, but ALL of those kids saw me clearly, and their jaws dropped. The stoner kid was especially scared, I could see it in his eyes! I just looked at them and smiled, and walked back into the house with it. As I put it back into the case, I could hear the bus coming down the street, so I ran to the window to see how much time I had left to catch it. Seeing I was shorter on time than I had realized, I grabbed my bag, locked the door, and ran to the bus...... forgetting that I LEFT THE RIFLE IN THE CASE on my parents bed, WITH THE CASE WIDE OPEN!!

Now when I got home, my DAD was already home (which never happened back in those days) and I got the verbal lashing that CLEARLY stands out in my mind to this day over 20 years later. To this day, I still clearly remember exactly what he had to tell me about HUMAN LIFE, RESPONSIBILITY, CARELESSNESS, ADULT ACTIONS VS. CHILD-LIKE ACTIONS, CITIZENSHIP, and most importantly, THE LAW. I was grounded from anything but school and my room for MONTHS!

He made me take a series of gun safety courses over that next summer, where one of our class assignments was to write a fake apology letter to a friends relative for being careless while playing with a gun and taking their life in the process, after watching a TRUE STORY about that same situation.

From that time to today, I have had PLENTY of opportunities in my life to do the wrong things, but chose otherwise with these lessons from my experience FRESH on my mind to this day. I honestly feel what I was lacking, and most children and young people today are, too, is a DEEPLY PROFOUND RESPECT for how firearms can END a human life, and how the behavior and actions of those who OWN them and USE them have a direct impact on LIFE.

Now, I don't know that any gun safety class like that would have possibly prevented that tragedy. Nor do I claim to believe that the bullying stoners who harassed my friends on the bus would have never done it, had their parents had a better influence in their lives. What I am agreeing on ahorseback with is the fact that today, responsible parenting seems to be a lost art for the youngest generations in our schools today. I just can't help but wonder if we would have LESS of these mass incidents if parents today were more engaging with their children than what I have been seeing of late. I look at myself everyday in the mirror and ask myself if I am doing right by my own children, who are 9 and 11, and I only hope they make the right decisions and choices when it comes to the hardships and personal adversities that this increasingly violent and cynical society and culture have for us today.

ahorseback,

In response to your last comment: I have tried to get help for someone very close to me, and I agree, it is a nightmare. It is practically impossible to get help for someone. Kids turn 16 and all of a sudden, as a parent you are told to back off---to which I would, and have said, no, you back off- try getting help for an unwilling adult and then it is truly impossible! In the article previous to this one, I did talk about an inadequate mental health system. That is a huge part of the problem. I did not touch on it in this piece. I have said that this is a very complicated issue and embodies so many areas, not just guns.

I agree whole-heartedly that we have a spoiled, and at the same time, ignored generation of children being raised currently. So much easier to give them a video game to entertain them then to actually spend time with them and teach them the things that we were taught, whether it be sports, reading, cooking, helping them with homework, teaching values, etc. It is wrong that they are handed computers and televisions and cell phones to be used as babysitters, and as a grandparent, I try to teach my grandchildren the things that I was taught. I take the responsibility seriously. I don't have a problem disciplining them- it comes with love-and if they don't like it, too bad! They know that I adore them and because of that, they listen. My 4 year old grandson has behavior issues, but not with me. He knows 'the look' and he knows I mean business. He also knows that I will sit and we will talk for hours- yes! I get tired of playing trains (can't move well anymore) and I get even more tired of getting hit in the head when we are playing planes and I don't duck quick enough. He calls his parents names (I blame them both for creating chaos in his young life), but so far, just tells me he loves me. If he ever dares to call me a name, I won't have a problem grabbing him up by the collar-

I agree with absolutely everything you said in your last comment on how to keep kids from becoming victims.

You don't know alot about me, ahorseback- I was widowed at 31-now 59- I had 3 young children at the time, 4, 6 and 10. I worked my butt off to house them, clothe them and feed them, but always scheduled my work (made less money) so that I could be there when they were, as much as was possible. When I got home, I spent time with them and all of their friends, always at our house, and my weekends were spent, not recuperating from work and ignoring my kids, but traveling from state to state as my son's hockey coach-even my girls played for a time. Did I ever pick up an ice hockey stick in my previous life as a wife and mom? No- Did I learn everything about the game they loved after their dad died? You bet I did, because I would not hand over my responsibility as a parent to some stranger.

When my husband died, I didn't even know how to put gas in the car. I sobbed the first time I went to fill the gas tank, but I learned. I learned alot-maybe too much-I knew I had to become the mom and the dad, and I was terrified. My kids had everything I could give them- but the most important thing I gave them was me. That is what so many parents today don't get and that is why we have a coddled, yet neglected group of kids growing up today. And yes, it is going to be a huge problem. Was I perfect? Far from it! But I knew what was important.

I taught all my kids how to be kind and share. I would not tolerate bullying, in any form. But I also taught them how to be self-sufficient, how to be survivors and to contribute to society. Parents aren't teachers anymore...

Jillian ,It sounds like you have been down a rough road my dear, and yet , you seem so together about child behavior . Punishment and accountability ! Maybe I stepped on your toes in this dance , so let me say this . I think that women are the real heroes in our "fatherless " society today ! Often , too often a woman has to wear all of the hats ! Father ,mother , teacher , councilor ! On and on . my wife and i met about ten years ago . And in getting to know each other as we discussed what was wrong in our society I blamed Man , Fathers ! Those that walk out on thier kids and only go on in life to Do it all over again ! My wife blames" womans lib " ,she says a woman today just expects too much ! The job ,career , a social life , A family . And all at once ! Who knows ? Respectfully .....Ed

Dear Ed-

It was rough, but didn't realize it until recently. Never had the time to think about it. Now, looking back, I wonder how I did it. I never wanted to be a career woman and never really have been. I was just a mom that had to work so my kids could eat. I have little respect for men that leave their children willingly. I also have little respect for women who put career above family. Think that priorities have gotten screwed up somewhere along the way.

I was tough on my kids-my parents were tough on me. Yet, my kids always knew that I would defend them to the death- but I would also have been the first to call the cops on them if they broke the law. Bail them out of jail for anything? Hell, no! Thank God I never had to face that. So, in alot of areas am very conservative. I believe in accountability and hard work.

Don't worry about stepping on my toes, Ed! I did the same to you. And please, don't ever hesitate to disagree with me. To me, that would mean we can't exchange ideas or be honest, and then it all becomes pointless!

Again- wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year!

Jillian , I have a funny story about parenting ! My father ,my personal hero , was a wicked beer drinking man ! He just loved the taste of it and would almost always have one around where ever he was at the time . Working , driving , sleeping , anyway , My next oldest brother back in the sixties got caught in a DUI sting ! So he callls home and my father answers the phone :

" Yes this is Sgt. so and so , we have your son here in a cell and he's been charged with DUI . You can bail him out after four PM. ,so my Father in all his wisdom goes twenty or thirty miles from home and is going to bail out my brother !..........Meanwhile the phones rings at home , I pick it up and ......

"Yes this is SGT. so and so . could I speak to your mother " ,.............. "mam , we need you to come up here and Bail out your husband and your son " ............They didn't arrest my father but wouldn't let him drive home either !

Ahh you had to love the sixties .........Oh don't ask me the moral of the story lol.........Its kinda cute though ,No? .........:-}

It's May now, and I feel so bad Obama's gun control measures couldn't pass. My son is a Kindergarten teacher, and I know he would die to save his little students, he's so responsible. But why should any teacher have to? Nobody needs to have access to a military weapon, which is anything with a clip that can just keep being reloaded and reshot. And I can't believe people who think arming more people is the answer. Are we all supposed to shoot each other if we have a bad day? Most schools are quite protected. I wrote on another person's hub that elementary schools in NJ have doors that lock as soon as the teacher has her lined up class ready to take inside the classroom. The door locks--from the outside--so unless they need to get out for a fire or emergency, nobody can get into the school without announcing themselves in the speaker and video system at the main entrance. An unknown person would never get in. A man argued this with me for about a week on HP, saying it was a fire hazard. But he is from ID, where all the white supremesists are. I told him that in Western states the populations are very low compared to coastal ones, and the populations are mostly white. I travel and know this to be true. But some people have to be right. Guns are not the answer.

Hi Jillian,

I so seldom get to read since I'm always writing. This caught my eye, because I think there is too much violence in American society, and because my son is a K-1st grade teacher. I cried hundreds of tears for that young teacher who died trying to save her little ones, because it could have been him. He's a 3rd degree black belt in karate with 15 yrs experience, but you know they are always our children. All of them. These NRA nuts have gone completely off the cliff. I watch Fox News sometimes just to see what crazy people think. I'm also upset about Trayvon Martin. There was no "Neighborhood Watch." Some towns have REAL ones. It was a one man vigilante who called the cops 40+ times to complain about black people in his sheltered gated community. I guess I and about 50 others watch MSNBC, I can't take all this nuttiness anymore. To quote Elvis Costello, "What's so Funny About Peace, Love and Understanding?"
