    Shouldn’t those kids be wearing bullet-proof backpacks to keep them safe on the way home?

    Cage of freedom, That’s our prison
    We’re the jailer and captive combined
    Cage of freedom,Cast in power
    All the trappings of our own design
    Blind ambition, Steals our reason
    We’re soon behind those invisible bars

    On the inside, Looking outside
    To make it safer we double the guard
    Cage of freedom, There’s no escaping
    We fabricated a world of our own….

    Cage of freedom, growing smaller
    ‘Til every wall now touches the skin
    Cage of freedom, filled with treason
    Changing sides as the losses begin
    Our suspicion tries escaping
    But they step up the security
    There’s no exit—there’s no entrance
    Remember how we swallowed the key?
    Cage of freedom, that’s our prison
    We fabricated this world on our own….

    Big brother, Is there a bigger one watching you
    Or is there one smaller, Who I should be watching too
    Infinite circles of, Snakes eating their own tails
    For every one chasing, Another is on the trail
    Is that a friend,Can you tell, is he on your side?
    ’Cause I spy with my little eye
    Yet another spy… (fadeout)
    (From Cage of Freedom sung by Jon Anderson on the Metropolis Soundtrack.)
    as Stan Lee might say,
    ’Nuff said.

    It’s possible to confiscate all assault weapons and make us all safer, but it won’t happen because once you take someone’s focus of worship and adoration away, they become violent and irrational.
    Instead, we get a privatized police state — much worse than anything the government could possibly dream up (if that’s even possible) — so that a bunch of drooling cavemen can worship their firearms openly and brazenly.
    For those of us who shrug at the gun worship phenomenon, we can only hope that one day there will be some comic relief at the expense of the gun worshippers.

    But no guns for the kids?

    Why do you think the building is rickety and the bookshelf is empty and covered in cobwebs? Why spend money to educate kids when you can keep them ignorant and fearful? That’s the best way for the NRA to ensure a new generation of members!

    Very nice. Also nice to see the voice of Yes getting some exposure.

    Lapierre had a perfectly workable solution to the problem of gun violence in schools. Just put in enough armed guards to handle the situation. I estimate the average school would require about 10 armed guards to cover all of the doors.
    Where would we get the money to pay them? No problem, just tax each sale of weapons or ammunition enough to cover their salaries. That wouldn’t just cut down considerably on the sale of guns, it would be a big help in finding work for returning vets.

    puting 1 armed guard per school would increase budget 3/4 of 1 % so masterskrain you think sending kids to school with bulleyes on their back is a better idea?

    You are safer in a school than you are at home.
    Armed guards at schools seems expensive and ineffective.

    There are approx. 130,000 public and private schools for K-12 children in the US. 10 armed guards per school means 1.3 million guns in schools. What could possibly go wrong?
    What are the odds that an armed guard would shoot an innocent kid, either directly or as an innocent bystander? 1%? 0.1%? 0.01% 0.001%? I don’t know the anwer, but the probability isn’t zero. That means that some innocent kids would be shot JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE GUNS IN SCHOOLS.
    I don’t think Mr. LaPierre did the math.

    “One armed guard in every school would cost less then Obama’s Hawaii vacation.”
    Have you done any math to come to that conclusion, or do you just decide it must be so? I’d be interested to see your figures.

    “puting 1 armed guard per school would increase budget 3/4 of 1 %…”
    Where did you come up with this percentage?

    Right. And give alcoholics more liquor to stop the drinking problem.

    “Nobody understand statistics and human behavior.”

    Except you, and you alone.
    Haven’t you considered it’s you that doesn’t understand?

    Let’s do the math!
    Let’s assume $40/hour, which is typical for off-duty police officers. Let’s also assume that the school year is 40 weeks/year.
    130,000 schools x 1 armed guard x $40/hour x 40 hours/week x 40 weeks = $8.32 billion/year.
    If we need 10 guards per school…we can all do that math.
