    Should everyone get the same privileges as the President of the United States? The Jet? The Pay? I assume you support raising the minimum wage to $300k+ then?

    Here’s the point: let’s just survey the posters here on GoComics. How many hate Mr. Obama? Raise your hands high.

    How many hate a first grader in, let’s say, Connecticut? Raise your hands high.

    Not a good sample? Go to Facebook. Some of my friends sound as though they would be willing to strangle Mr. Obama with their bare hands if they had the chance. Not so with first graders.

    And it’s not just Mr. Obama; even Ronald Reagan, who approaches sainthood in the minds of several of these posters was shot. And it’s not just Americans we have to worry about….remember the shrubster telling us he had to go after Saddam Hussein because “he threatened to hurt my daddy”.

    He may not be “that important” to you. But he IS the president of the US. That’s important to some of us, like him personally or not.

    Just what is the big deal about the murder of twenty school children? It’s not as if they were embryos, who must be protected at any cost. Right, Republicans?

    Here’s an example of how Republicans want to “protect” our school children:

    If you’ll forgive me paraphrasing a couple of my comments from a few months ago….
    I find it hard to believe that anyone genuinely believes that teachers of 6-7 year old children tbeing armed with weapons and trained in the use of deadly force in order to protect those children in their pursuit of an education is either acceptable or remotely possible to implement.
    A school is a place of learning for young children, which is supposed to provide an atmosphere of easy safety, a haven, without distraction from the harsh realities of the outside world, in which they can learn to prepare for it.
    A society which allows free and easy access for anyone to what are essentially weapons of mass destruction at close quarters, is either placing every single man woman and child in the firing line, or by implementing the security measures necessary to counter that, imposing on the most vulnerable and innocent an awareness of the fear pervading your society at a time and in a place where they need it least.

    Sorry Tigger, Wrong
    He used an Bushmaster XM15-E2S. Commonly known as the AR-15 semi automatic, magazine fed rifle can fire 5.56 Nato or .223 civilian hunting round. Similar in design and function to the military M-16 except for a lack of auto fire.
    He fired a 155 rounds in five minutes. 154 at people. The 155 one from his pistol when police entered the building.
    If I gave you a pistol, a door you can bar, and training on how to defend yourself could you stop a mad man like that?
    Because if you are expecting me the POLICE to come save you remember you have 5 minutes. I am getting there as quick as I can.
    Think about it

    And at Houston only two were critical the rest were various from no treatment to some stitches.
    He was detained by local students who caught up with him and took him down holding him for authorities.
    See the issue is DEFEND your damn selves!!!!!!!!
    I will get there ASAP but in the mean time don’t let that MAD MAN walk around shooting at will. Charge him, toss chairs, books, purses, shoes what ever you have to stave him off. Don’t sit there and let him walk up and shoot you in the face.
    Don’t forget the Luby’s shooting years ago. This mad man walked around shooting folks as they cringed on the floor begging not to be shot. He even took time to reload his magazines when he ran out and folks just SAT there.
    Remember 9-11. One set of passengers decided they were not going to go out without a fight. Sure the died but on your feet or on your knees crying about it.
    And at Lubys he was using a Glock 9mm. Two magazine with 15 rounds each. He reloaded the magazines from rounds in his pocket.

    Gualdo do you not think as a teacher your job may include more than TEACHING.
    The children are yours to protect. Do you not herd them for a fire drill, tornado drill? Why not have the ability to protect them. Lanza attacked a school that had a locked door. HE shot it to get in. Folks ran to hide in closets. He opened the closet and just pulled the trigger then reloaded and pulled the trigger some more. What if he had teacher level gunfire at HIM when he came in the classroom. You behind a desk for cover, drawing his attention and MAKING HIM FEEL THE RUSH of those bullets coming at him. I as a cop cannot sit there in the classroom to defend you and the kids. You are on your own till help arrives.
    At the Fort Hood shooting there is a video that has not been shown when police arrived to take him own. When they began shooting at him he waves his arms at them to make them stop shooting at him. After he was hit and down he whined why did you shoot me? These SHOOTERS love sheep. They complain little and cower when threatened. A response of ANY FORCE tends to make them look for more compliant targets.

    Nice try, Veteran, but Tigger’s lie about the assault weapon has been pointed out to her before, and each time she just jumps to a new thread and repeats it. That’s Tigger’s style on many issues.

    Actually if you should remove security detail it should be from EX-presidents. Exactly what risc is there against them that there isn´t again any normal person – however the president in charge is the person at risc from assassination.
