Skip to comments.NYS Sheriffs' Association calls for an armed cop in every school
Posted on 02/22/2018 1:12:01 PM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
In the wake of a Florida school shooting that took the lives of 17 people, the New York State Sheriffs Association is calling for armed officers in every school in New York.
With more 6,700 public and private schools in the state, the Sheriffs Association estimates that the cost would roughly be equal to adding a teacher to each of those schools.
The association is calling on the State Legislature to incorporate the cost into the 2018 state budget.
This will be an expensive undertaking, but we owe it to our children, and their parents, to provide a safe place for education to take place, said Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts, President of the New York State Sheriffs Association.
Many school districts already have a School Resource Officer paid for by the district or county government.
The only way to assure that every student has the protection of an armed officer in close proximity is for the state to provide a reliable funding stream for SROs. Many school districts and local governments are unable to do it due to tax caps and limited funding sources, Sheriff Virts added.

We have resource officers in our Florida county in every school..................
Let’s first start with current staff to see who is qualified and wants to help protect the students.
This won’t go well with the LW agenda. They prefer seeing piles of dead kids as opposed to a dead perp shot while trying to enter a school who was killed by big bad police officers. They will protest the cops who guard the children and call them Nazi Pigs and Fascists. Sound crazy? LW MSM lusts for dead children for their stories and this doesn’t fit their narrative
I was reading a daily beast article saying that teachers will quit rather than carry guns. The quotes from the teachers made them sound like emotional idiots. The thought of being able to protect their students makes them sick. Their leftist hate of guns is irrational.
This is not what the left intended. Gun free zones days are numbered.
So lay off one administrator each...
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
The only way to ensure the safety of the students from being gunned down by a kook, is to homeschool them.
It also protects them from a host of other problems, such as poor quality education, vile sex ed, easy access to drugs, and an adult free social situation (Lord of the Flies comes to mind), and *gasp* even bullying.
I know for a fact that that is not true.
I know teachers who would certainly carry if they could.
This is so obvious. Half of the Jewelry stores in the country have armed guards but schools dont just ridiculous. The school was gun free zone bill was sponsored by Biden
Thanks Behind Liberal Lines.
One armed cop isn’t enough. 20-30% of the staff carrying is.
Then you can afford 2 armed officers.
They need 3 on day shift and games, and one night watchman. A fence. Metal and scan entrance. Bullet proof glass. Very hardened entryways.
Think about the term “gun violence”. I’ve never met a VIOLENT gun. I’ve met some violent people. And THEY will, if disposed to become killers, find ways to kill! Would you also prohibit sale of materials like diesel fuel, ammonium nitrate and steel pipe and fittings - ALL necessary to the functioning of a modern society and innocent enough alone but - as demonstrated by muslim morons - capable of killing hundreds at a time in an instant?
The FBI COULD have kept this idiot in Florida away from his guns BUT THEY WERE TOO BUSY to even INTERVIEW HIM???
And ask yourself WHY - in this highly computerized culture - our various law enforcement agencies DO NOT share background information with one another? Am I paranoid to think that perhaps these sad murders of innocents aid in advancing some totalitarian agenda as they attempt to whip otherwise intelligent people into a frenzy to herd them in a direction they wish them to go? Look up Hegelian Dialectic for starters. There are forces at work in the world today that pay no heed to what most of us consider rules of civilized behavior. They are only guided by what advances their agenda. Does the old phrase “You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs” come to mind.
Some quotes to ponder:
A free people should not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might abuse them, WHICH WOULD INCLUDE THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT. That from George Washington!
And the late DEMOCRAT Senator and presidential candidate Hubert Humphery offered this on the topic:
“The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against
arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny
which now appears remote in America, but which historically
has proved to be always possible.”
(Ed. Comment: Heavens, how the Democrats have changed!)
And consider the IRONY that the 4th Estate (which has largely morphed into a 5TH COLUMN) always raises the false argument that the Founders never envisioned the advent of weapons like the AR15 and other modern arms. Those 56 men were students of history and the knew well the failings of human nature. They understood that the Constitutional economic and political system they sought to leave as their legacy would produce abundance and liberty for more people than any in history. They ALSO knew that it would spawn advances in technology that would some day make the physical artifacts common in THEIR day the relics they have become in ours. THAT INCLUDED WEAPONS of all sorts!
Now here’s the irony: If one applies to the Second Amendment the media’s claim that ordinary citizens ...the people.. today should ONLY be allowed to possess unrifiled, muzzle loaded flintlock muskets, that logic would limit THEM to writing today’s latest fake news by dipping quill pens into ink wells and scribbling on parchment!
And for those who still believe that the media are benign innocents simply journalizing events here, I’m compelled to add this from Mark Twain:
“Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.
Let me wrap this with a fact MOST humans find so disturbing that they refuse to confront it: MOST OF THE HUMANS KILLED OVER HISTORY WERE MURDERED BY GOVERNMENTS.
It’s called DEMOCIDE and 260 MILLION people died at the hands of a government in just the 20th century.
And THAT is why those of us who still possess critical thinking skills and have families STILL outnumber those who repeatedly call for steps toward the ultimate goal of the left: Total disarmament of this population.
“was reading a daily beast article saying that teachers will quit rather than carry guns”
Like this is bad thing???
Where will these precious snowflakes find another job with such pay and benefits?
