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.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the NRA, among others, crime in the US has DECREASED as private gun ownership and taxable sales of weapons has INCREASED in the past 15 years.

You are from Duluth, that is a blue town. What are you doing opposing Obama's desire to ban all guns.

Moron, all three are statistical, government offered sites. Hardly biased. Try again. I know you hate facts, but try harder.

Yeah come see what liberalism does to a community. This town is a dump.

Listen to what the Brits, Australians and Canadian gun owners, or former gun owners, warn us. Don't give them up. Its a mistake.

From 2007, after Virginia Tech, the last time liberals tried this failed tactic and the media tried to follow suit until statistics and common sense won out. Give up.

We had an armed guard in the Atlanta school where one student shot and killed another yesterday.

The student is still just as dead as he would have been with no armed guard at the school.

Either you're a liar, an idiot, or more likely, both. The armed guard disarmed the shooter. The shooting victim was only slightly injured and was released from the hospital last night.

Actually, you are correct, it appears the story I read was incorrect. The student that was shot in the back of the head WAS released from the hospital this morning. I stand corrected.

My point remains - having an armed guard at the school did not prevent this shooting.

No one died, the shooter was disarmed by an arm guard after wounding one person. Get your story straight Bob/Lawton/Consistent!!

Of course the armed guard prevented students getting shot, you need to read up on this story. If only one student was shot, and the armed guard disarmed the shooter, then the armed guard did exactly what was expected of him. The real question is, how did the student get the gun past the metal detectors that were at the school.

Yes, the armed guard made sure all of the students were at least 6 feet tall. You're an idiot.

Oh no Slewsie! My gay Spell Check Queen made a spelling error. Oh, the embarrassment of telling the world that my husband is not as smart as a 2nd grader.
