to paraphrase "For the protection of our kids. . .lets arm all the schools" Really, NRA. I know you guys are mostly a spokesman for the gun makers and not us normal citizens. And a world where everyone has a armed guard would no doubt boost your profits. . .but are these companies going to, out of the goodness of their hearts, give these firearms for free? and the training? No Mr NRA? You want us to pay? You want us to Arm schools when the trend in violence in schools is down, a straight downward trend since the 90s without those guns? You want us to pay a expenese, that could put seatbelts on EVERY school bus in the united states, and save thousands more lives? Or you want us to pay that expense, instead of maybe mandating flu shots for kids (save 4x as many kids as spree shootings took in 2012) Or maybe lighting helmets? for our kids? that would be a even investment vs. school shootings The issue isn't that schools aren't unsafe, mr NRA. The issue isn't criminals (who normally shoot each other, not our kids . . .and even that, they are shooting less than ever). The issue isn't more guns in a school to be used by accident, to shoot a ups driver, or to stop a kid from throwing a temper tantrum, to settle a domestic violence episode, or even suicide - ALL OF WHICH ARE MORE LIKELY THAN STOPPING a 1 in 4 million spree killing. The issue is crazy people getting guns, and having the ability to load these up with more bullets than kids. Lets take the NRA at what they are, the ones who benefit from EVERY human being having a gun and using those guns to settle everything.
