Folks your missing the forest through the trees. Yes, they will continue their push to take away our second amendment rights, but this theatre we are now witnessing is intended to sell the idea of FEDERAL POLICE further infiltrating state society via out schools. I promise, We do NOT want the federal government (particularly Homeland Security) in our schools at this level, and should be screaming no at the top of our lungs over the very hint of it.
 Quoting: SaveUSa


I think here's someone who got it..
 Quoting: Ostria1


Wow you people dont know how to listen do you.

#1. Asa Hutchinson did NOT say they planned to INVOLVE Homeland Security. He prefaced remarkes with "and some things I learned during my time at Homeland Security".

#2. He said their plan did not necessarily burden local police budgets and eluded to using qualified VOLUNTEERS to act as security. Just like most crossing guards are VOLUNTEERS.

This plan said NOTHING about creating or leveraging a federal police force.

Get the wax out of your ears people.
 Quoting: Floobarb the Argnorf


wait and see... do you really believe that volunteers and teachers will "play security" in such a sensitive case?
will you trust them for your kids anyway?
 Quoting: Ostria1


Yes I do.

The proposed concept is simple. Think volunteer, like a crossing guard, but trained in firearms and security by the NRA program, by responsibile citizens including police, retired police, retired military etc.

It's a simple concept.

Oh, this is just fucking great!

Now we're gonna have Homeland security and TSA nude-scanners in our schools. Sandy Hook is sounding more and more like a false-flag operation...designed to turn our schools into a training ground for the fascist police state.

i hope theyre not going to succumb to fuckin liberal pressure
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


Here's what I think will happen. Because the Opresident has tapped Joe Biden to head up the investigatory committee to solve this problem, and Joe has invited several different groups to participate, it looks like they will probably try to make their efforts look like a balanced all-around approach. You know, fair share.

So, they will ask the games/video "entertainment" industry to limit itself and label itself better.

They will tell parents to monitor what games/videos their children are playing/watching.

They will talk about forming a new TSA-type security for all schools, which will only take a year or two to implement.

They will encourage neighborhood watches.

They will form a new committee to develop more stringent mental health protection measures.

And because they are sooooo concerned for the safety of the children, they will ban "assault rifles" and large ammo magazines.

That way, everyone has done their fair share, see?

It will make the gun owners look like heartless devils if they don't want to hand over their weapons, because gee we all have to pitch in and help.

FORWARD!!

Well I m afraid you all think very simple and in good trust. I wouldnt trust anyone with a gun close to my child but i guess we have a very different culture. Lets hope this will work good for you.

Blame it on the AR? It's not the gun people.

With a little practice watch what you can do with a Glock.

Something like 48 shots in 30 seconds? That's 48 people dead..

I'd bet you every dollar I own this guy is part of the "debt is too high" group...yet he wants armed police in every school in America? You have any idea how much that'd cost the federal government? Especially since I'm nearly certain local and state government won't want to fund the bill...

He also made reference to trained "volunters".
There isnt a school in this country that doesnt have a
parent ,grandparent or sibling that is a veteran to which would gladly volunter. Case in point

How would these volunteers be vetted? There would be some type of federal program in place, at the least...but for some reason, I doubt that the government would let something like this pass them by as "they know best".
 Quoting: Laura Bow


That what the NRA said thier program will be. The NRA is developing the security program and will vet and train the armed security personnel in accordance with whatever parts of the NRA program the local school board chooses to adopt.
 Quoting: Floobarb the Argnorf


I guess you're much more optimistic than I am about whether the federal government would be willing to fund something like this but not have a say. If there's a way to do it without involving fedgov though, that'd be awesome!

Universities have "Campus Police" or "Security"...maybe each school district could do something similar, aside from the many schools who have already had an armed local police officer on duty at the schools for many years.

Each State has their own relationship with the Federal Government...they don't all do things the same way...laws and procedures vary from state to state...with public schools, most local parents and tax payers would have a say at the local level - that is what the school boards are for.
