Posted on 12/21/2012 11:06:23 AM PST by mdittmar
Parents and administrators' reactions are ranging from hesitation to anger over a proposal by the nation's largest gun-rights lobby to put an armed police officer in every school.
Superintendent Hank Grishman of the Jericho, N.Y., schools on Long Island says he is outraged by the idea. He says putting more guns in schools won't make children safer, and could even put them in the line of more gunfire.
Parent Helen Gym in Philadelphia believes the proposal is "extraordinarily opportunistic."

A quick look for “Helen Gym” finds, drum roll please:
A COMMUNITY ACTIVIST!
Look at my post, #51.......
It’s time to give up on public schools. Not only do they offer a sub-standard education with liberal indoctrination, but they can’t even keep kids safe from bullies even, much less a determined gunman. Home-school your own kids or hire someone to educate them.
Safer like that than in a gun free government school even with a nationwide all-weapons ban.
No guns in class! Good! Now get them hooked on Kindergarten Killer games online.
Blame it on the NRA! I didn’t know there was such a game till now!
CASE IN POINT Is merely "carrying" a gun protection enough? Do you actually have to shoot someone to protect yourself? Read on.
Women being stalked is epidemic---so much so there is an entire cable series devoted to the subject. The cases are shocking---women being killed, beaten and maimed just b/c they decided to leave an abusive spouse or boyfriend.
One case involved a successful woman who was brutally beaten by her live-in. She then decided to leave. He stalked her relentlessly, he emptied her bank accounts; she could not hold a job--he would harrass her employers causing her dismissal. She had to move constantly b/c he threatened the life of anyone who sheltered her.
At the end of her rope, she decided she would take a new tact. She got licensed to carry a weapon. When the stalker drove up her driveway, she went outside holding her weapon at her side. She NEVER pointed it at him nor did she use it---she just wanted him to see it.
Oh yeah, he saw it. He turned tail and rarely showed up at her door again.
Here's another famous case where just having---not using--- a gun saved two lives.
A NY Dad and his son were on a "bonding weekend" at their isolated New England cottage. A loud insistent knock on the front door aroused the savvy dad's suspicions. The Dad positioned his son behind a large chair out of sight of the doorway.
The Dad then got out his gun and held it at his side---he cautiously pulled aside the curtain on the door and saw a teenaged stranger asking to "use the phone."
The savvy Dad became even more alarmed---he raised his gun and rested his hand on the door jamb---so the stranger could see the outline of the gun. Sure enough the stranger fled.
Later the Dad found signs of a 2nd intruder, the telephone wires had been cut and a makeshift grave dug at the back of the house.
But the story did not end there.
The Dad's story was being told in the context of the brutal knife-killing of husband and wife Dartmouth professors who had let two teenaged strangers into their house.........the same two who had attempted to kill the Dad and his son. The profs did not have weapons.
Now there's a brilliant statement...Why is it legal for these people to even think???
So, someone is insinuating that the know that ALL parents are either hesitant or angry about the proposal to have trained armed teachers to better provide security in schools? Wow. Considering the suggesting was just recently proposed by the NRA, whomever did a survey was certainly quick about it. I call BS. As a parent/grandparent/school employee, I would support having properly trained, licensed teachers with a concealed handgun on campus. In fact, I would volunteer to go through the screening and training process.

People have lost their freakin’ minds, Waspman!
Totally! Or so it certainly seems... Between Dr. Spock and a unionized public school system of indoctrination, it's little wonder we live in troubled times!!!
We need the 2nd Amendment to protect us from an out of control Government.
Lets hire 100,000 more Government agents and arm them.
Maybe we can just turn it over to the TSA.
So this douche bag's better idea is to disarm law-abiding American people and stomp on the 2d Amendment.
All so he doesn't freak-out because of a cop with a gun in his school.
Like they were reading from the same script! Disgusting! Why do they even NEED to be police officers...just teachers with CCW’s (Only problem is, most are libs and have deeply ingrained learned helplessness and timidity) However, these psychos are all COWARDS! No exceptions! Just POINT a gun at them and they will crap their pants. America better man up, and FAST!
“Are leftists that stupid?”
YES!!!! They only want to shut their eyes, plug their ears and pretend the real world does not exist!
A good time to re-read LTC Dave Grossman’s article, “On Wolves, Sheep, and Sheepdogs”
“putting more guns in schools won’t make children safer, and could even put them in the line of more gunfire.”
Instead of being sitting ducks as they are now? How does one get to be an ‘educator’ and remain so hopelessly stupid?
So ABC called a community activist to get the opinion it wanted to base its story on. okie dokie.
In a word, Yep.
