So I saw a thread on another forum that I am amazed anyone could possibly be in support of. Armed guards at EVERY school in America?
I don't think anyone has thought through the cost of this rather ambitious endeavor.
Or the fact that Virgina Tech had armed cops on campus and it DID NOT stop the murders that happened. I wonder how many people were armed at Ft. Hood, which is the biggest military installation IN THE WORLD...yet 13 people lost their lives in that shooting and 29 were wounded.
Also, if a shooter KNOWS there is an armed cop of some kind, guess who is going to get shot first?
I find it hilarious that those who carry on about a "police state" or "nanny state" come crying to the government in time of need. For those that go on about "smaller government" yet seem to want to increase it when it's convenient for them.
Maybe we ought to just equip all kids attending schools with guns. We could get cute lil' pink ones for kindergarten girls. As they get older, they can get a higher power gun and have their favorite band on it. We could even get covers for them like we have for phones. And so once we have all the kids armed, and all the teachers armed, nothing bad will ever happen again, right????
As stated in an earlier thread THE ANSWERS to this are not so simplistic. Oh...if ONLY!!!!
