It's the same ole recycled crap you guys post trying to defend the indefensible. The crims with guns 99% of the time shot each other, the rest of the time where innocents are shot in gang bang'er drive by's, having a gun won't prevent any of that. But crims do not walk into shopping malls or schools and start shooting. Those ppl are on suicide missions that want to be noticed taking as many as they can with them. By having lose gun laws allows them an easy way to do it. That is what needs changing, otherwise why stop at assualt weapons why not let anyone have anything. In otherwords let someone drive a tank into walmart with a sub machine gun and go to town. That is the distorted logic of this bs right to bear arms crap. If you want to read it literally, then why have any limits.
obama disagrees with you. He thinks civilians shoud be just as powerfull as the military..

The prices are beginning to roll in. Anyone wish to guess what an average 2000 student public High School will cost to protect with armed security during school hours?

Talk about growing government!

Don't confuse the crazy baggers.
I've been asking them for weeks how much tax money they wanna spend on armed guards.
In the city of Chicago we have 700 public schools alone.
Conservatively that is roughly 50 million a year.

Marion County Florida which is not a metropolitan area would cost as much as $162 million to bring up to the standards the NRA recommends.

Keep in mind that a single security guard is laughable, it would take several in many schools in rotation to cover sick days, special events, athletic practices and events etc. etc.

I'm thinking that it makes the most sense to arm all the students and let the fkrs protect themselves.

There aren't going to be armed gaurds at every school.

Hell the amount of school shootings is really miniscule. I'd rather my kids attend a school where no one has a gun......

Where are you going to get the money to pay these people? Dedicated and courageous they may be, but you've got to pay security guards—which is, in all honesty, just what these people will be.

His suggestion for paying for it comes from the supposed cash-cow that is the foreign aid budget, because screw foreigners, right? But when it comes down to it, foreign aid spending is a drop in the bucket (just over 1 percent of our federal budget) compared to defense spending (which accounts for more than 15% of our federal budget). Why not reallocate part of the money dedicated to national defense to, uh, defend citizens?

There's a fine line here. Government, whether it's federal, state, or municipal, will want to be involved in these services that will, by some estimates, cost $5.5 billion to implement nationally. That money will have to come from somewhere—not all of these guards will want to volunteer. After all, few things are more patriotic in this country than fighting for adequate compensation.

So, there we are. The NRA wants us to have people with guns in every school (or at least to tear down the signs that read "gun-free zone") to protect our kids; wants legislators to quickly pass a law to put guards on campuses across the country; and is volunteering to pay for training (but not for the guards).

That's all well and good. Just don't forget that even having an armed guard on campus didn't prevent the Columbine massacre.

Good point on the rotation.
It's a laughable proposal to think we can afford guards when they don't wanna pay teachers.
