Do you think the N.R.A. statement concerning school violence was crazy?


At first, I did. But after thinking a bit, I realized that for now, it's the best safety step for our kids until we can come up with something better. All these grandios ideas of government legislating safety with gun rules and mental health aid are all pipe dreams. Knowing that these tragedies of school shootings and mass murders can happen in our own backyard, that is also where the answers lie. Not on some news channel, or Washington or in some book. There are no across the board answers. Watch for upcoming hub.

    They will get them one way or another. Illegally or legally.

    Maybe my use of the term pipe dream was a little rough, but my point is that these ideas would take a tremendous amount of time to impliment and have effect. In the meantime, we stop the fool from fueling the fire.

    With millions of schools in the U.S. that would be a lot of armed guards. What if they formed a union. That would be a strong union. No, an army. Bigger than the U.S. military. Scary thought isn't it? Movie idea??

    Gatehouse idea isn't bad. Uniformed guards would be intimidating to the children. With all the comments about armed guards, who's going to pay for this? This would cost more than a war.

    Only problem is that most National guardsmen already have full time jobs. They are only active 1 weekend per month.

    Along with your point, If that statement would have come from someone other than the N.R.A. people would probably have a different take. Many don't understand what they are all about.
