Police in schools? Who would want that?

Moonbats had a good time poking fun at the NRA suggestion to place police officers in Americans schools. Here is a Daily Kos diarist.

Any doubts that the NRA has been overtaken by paranoid, conspiracy theorists who live in a cartoon world of good guys and bad guys had to be put to rest by the appalling press conference just held by the organization’s executive vice president Wayne LaPierre.

The upshot, 20 children in Newtown, Connecticut were killed last week because politicians passed gun-free school zone laws that made them sitting ducks and the only solution to prevent more massacres of children is to have—yes, this is really the proposal that the NRA has come up with in the wake of the tragedy—armed guards at every school in the nation.

It would be very difficult to overstate the appalling insensitivity LaPierre showed; the paranoia, the victimhood, the passing of blame onto every other possible entity—Congress, the people who fight the NRA, the video game manufacturers, Hollywood, the medical community.

Guess what.

The Obama administration is considering funding many more police officers in public schools to secure campuses, a leading Democratic senator said, part of a broad gun violence agenda that is likely to include a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips and universal background checks.

The school safety initiative, one of several under consideration, would make federal dollars available to schools that want to hire police officers and install surveillance equipment, although it is not nearly as far-ranging as the National Rifle Association’s proposal for armed guards in every U.S. school.

The idea is gaining currency among some Democratic lawmakers, who see it as a potential area of common ground with Republicans who otherwise oppose stricter restrictions on firearms.

    In Maricopa County, (Phoenix) AZ., Sheriff Joe’s ALREADY DOING THIS…just thought you’d like to know…

    I predict that the Senate will pass this, along WITH an amendment that bans standard capacity magazines. And I bet the House will pass it in order to not appear to not care about the kids.

    There have been Cops at our schools for years in my town. Heck, a guy I know is the resource officer at one of the high schools.

  4. TN-Cat says:

    Back in the 70’s, we not only had police officers in my high school but had to walk through metal detectors one year.

  5. Gager says:

    Who would want that? Newtown parents, apparently, as reported by AP yesterday. And back on Jan. 3, AP quoted the local police saying that the Monroe school used to replace the Newtown school was probably “the safest school in America”. Why? Because it was being guarded by law enforcement officers, presumably armed officers.

    The assumption is the Poolice will protect the people. The Supremes have rules that cops do NOT have an obligation to defend the people…more money to unions thats all.
