    Funny how this is playing out. The far right and Tea Party folks....for a couple weeks now have been preaching about an armed government worker in every school in America, and sending a police escort to every fire dept call to prevent another ambush, and putting armed gubmint workers in all malls and movie theaters, etc, etc, etc.

    Funny how they throw out their less-government, less spending gosspil...when it comes to avoiding the gun debate.

    Right wingers...you guys know to put an cop in every school, and send a cop on every fire dept call, and to spend the money to equip and train every teacher with a gun.......it means we will have to...wait for it...wait for it.......spend more tax dollars, increase revenue, and hire and pay even MORE GUBMINT WORKERS!!!!!!

    So....Tea Party folks...right wingers of the world....are you gonna stick to principles now, or not?

    The NRA wants Armed Officers in every school, not the TEA Party.

    Besides, if you believe the TSA keeps us safe from Terrorists then you MUST believe that TSA will keep Schools safe as well.

    Well, to be fair, most of the TP types around here that are supporting arming the schools have taken the position that somehow, magically, it's not going to cost anything. They certainly don't want to pay for it.

    If we're going to have to do this, first of all, let's make sure these people are able to unionize and get the kind of pay and benefits they deserve as guardians of the lives of America's children.

    I have to agree with MadS...it's not the TP, but the NRA...which really means the gun manufacturers who pay the NRA's bills.

    I would be in favor of training and arming at least one firefighter in every fire station and on each work shift. :cool:

    Americans already have the right to own firearms. Cost: Nothing.

    Plus, it's only Concealed Carry that requires a permit. Open Carry Cost: Nothing.

    Then it's just a matter of finding the right sidearm for YOU. I like the Glock 23 which can be bought new in the 500-600 dollar range.

    No Gov't program needed.

    Many of the firemen that I personally know were former military personal.

    So arming a limited number of firefighters with the proper training.

    Would be a cost effective solution to the dilemma of armed criminals ambushing firefighters. :cool:
