We already have armed guards in many schools.

Should those armed guards be removed because they are a bad idea?

Time to get serious about protecting kids by protecting them with armed guards in ALL SCHOOLS.

Armed guards are used all over to protect material things, why not helpless kids?

Yes we can afford it.

So certainly you'd agree that the cost should be paid by a user tax on guns and ammunition.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there were 98,817 public schools during the 2009-2010 school year.

A typical salary with fringe benefits and employer taxes would be somewhere around $40,000 per year for an armed security guard.

98,817 times 1.25 (you'd need more than 1 guard per school to cover vacation, training and sick days) times $40,000 equals 4.94 billion dollars per year.

The are 270 million firearms held by civilians in the US. 4.94 billion divided by 270 million gives an annaul tax of $18.30 per gun per year.

Of course, I didn't add inything ion for uniforms and additional insurance needed for having armed guards on the premises, and administering the new tax.

All you have to do is FIRE one of the lowest performing teachers in each school, especially in the public schools, which shouldn't be too hard to find, and your "funding problem" is solved.

"There" not "their".

Most schools do not currently have guards (there).

Where is "their"?

Should we post armed guards at every public and private building in the country and on every street corner?

Oh, and of course we should send the bill to the NRA and gun owners, right?

Guns weren't banned at Sandy Hook, you toidi!

Assault weapon and large magazine capacity bans will never work at the state level, especially when you only need to drive 40 miles to buy them legally.

The cause of Adam Lanza's killing was the drugs he was taking. So if you want to derive the cost of armed guards from the cause of mass killings than tax the drug industry.

If one thinks of Government and needed protection at schools in a number of cases a small town police station could simply be moved to a school to protect it. In many cases small towns have but 1 school building so the cost to protect a school would be $0.

Again MANY schools currently have armed guards in schools and have no problems with all the issues you claim to make it difficult and costly to use armed guards in schools.

You are full of it.

They won't work at the federal level either. Prohibition never works.

So, why do we have laws or the constitution, if they never "work" ??? Oddly, losers always complain about rules, unless they benefit them, then they "support them against all common sense...
