He also said banks have armed guards and why shouldn't schools have them.

Does he have the power to call on congress to do anything?

Does he have the power to get to the front of the line at McDonalds?

The chief executive of the National Rifle Association called on the U.S. Congress Friday to act immediately to put armed police officers in schools.
Wayne Lapierre made that call as he sought to defend gun owners' rights in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting that left 20 students and six adults dead. The gunman in the massacre also killed his mother before he took his own life at the school.
Lapierre called for the creation of a national plan to protect schools.
"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," Lapierre told reporters in Washington, D.C.

Just school kids at police stations. Cut out the middle man.

That's what a very efficient police state would do.

Maybe every person should have an armed guard. Then everyone will be safe from everyone else.

Damn why didn't I think of that. What about instead of more guns we just get bigger guns. I mean a security guard with a rocket propelled grenade launcher would make me think twice.

Arm the kids.

The USA is losing ground in the field of child soldiers to countries like Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Cambodia.

Whatever happened to American pride?

We'll need super powerful armed robots to enforce that though.

I can see the CNN headline now:

"Security Guard takes out gun wielding madman at a school playground with grenade launcher, only 10 children casualties", when questioned by the authorities, "yeah, but, I stopped him from killing anyone".

Ah NRA, what would we do without you. Obviously the answer to increasing safety is "Well, let's have someone stand guard with a gun." ASSUMING this works, which is a huge assumption, then people will just target another place with low security (ie: churches, malls, hospitals, grocery stores, etc). The NRA won't be happy until every place is guarded with a gun. I mean, obviously that's the answer. I would feel warm and fuzzy knowing that some ... is watching over me and my famiy's safety while I get my hair cut.

Raise taxes on guns and bullets, and see if they still think it's a good idea.

Actually banning things is right up 3/4 of the forum's alley. So I'm a believer when you say this. :lol:

The NRA wouldn't because they consist of law abiding citizens, and surely they logically shouldn't be punished for criminal actions nor short sighted liberal wet dreams that they can tax something out of existence.

The prevalence of bullet and guns will still remain in the hands of people committing crimes due to a very prominent black market (which exists even with guns being legal and bullets being cheap) flourishing. Obviously this is something you overlooked due to a rather mundane thought process that raising taxes or banning things inherently makes law breakers follow the law.

Ah NRA, what would we do without you. Obviously the answer to increasing safety is "Well, let's have someone stand guard with a gun." ASSUMING this works, which is a huge assumption, then people will just target another place with low security (ie: churches, malls, hospitals, grocery stores, etc). The NRA won't be happy until every place is guarded with a gun. I mean, obviously that's the answer. I would feel warm and fuzzy knowing that some ... is watching over me and my famiy's safety while I get my hair cut.

I encourage you to go to parts of East Palo Alto and Richmond, California, then, where no doubt even parlour owners are already packing heat. No doubt ownership is higher in areas where more criminal activity occurs as more ordinary citizens look for more ways to protect themselves due to not believing the authorities can. If you've ever been to parts like this then you just might understand why more citizens are going with self defence.

It wouldn't change in cities like Redwood City, or Mountain View, or Millbrae, or specific parts of SF where people generally don't feel worried, and perhaps as low as 10% of people have weapons. So alas, your hyperbole is both humorous and without merit.

Sad that people are getting so paranoid. Many schools there already have metal detectors and you can now buy bulletproof backpacks. I could see this being a good idea in the rough areas of town, but then again those areas probably have enough police presence already. No one should have to go to a school with airport-style security.

It's all fear. Everyone is so scared of everyone else. Scared you might get shot, or robbed or raped at any corner. Scared the government is plotting to steal your freedoms. Scared of everything. It's sick, the states is a diseased nation. These are all just symptoms.
