James Salt: The NRA Had Best Be Careful About What It Says Tomorrow

This is pure BS liberal propaganda. ......in other words, nothing new from the MSM.

Quote:The NRA Had Best Be Careful About What It Says Tomorrow
By James Salt

There are 300 million guns in the United States. According to governors like Rick Perry from Texas, right-wing pundits like Mike Huckabee and countless other apologists for the status quo, the problem is that the principal of Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut didn't have a firearm when a gunman entered the school with military-style weapons and tragically killed 20 students and six school personnel. As we have learned, principal Dawn Hochsprung was one of the heroic public employees who lunged at the gunman before being gunned down herself.

The proposal to arm teachers is insane. The solution to guns and gun violence is not more guns. It's also shockingly hypocritical. The extremists who want to outfit teachers and other public employees with guns so they can risk their lives to defend children from armed crazies also want to take away these workers' health care, pensions and unions.

So what will National Rifle Association leaders say tomorrow when they have their press conference about the massacre? I'm hoping that arming teachers in the classrooms is not one of their big initiatives. I'm hoping it's something that will make some sense to people in Newtown and across this country who are grieving and desperate for the kind of meaningful action President Obama has talked about.

The NRA's press release said the group is "shocked" and "saddened" by what happened. As horrific as this event was, no one should be shocked by it because it is all too common. What's shocking is the sheer number of mass shootings in this country since Columbine. What's shocking is the history of such shootings in our country. What's shocking is that 12,000 people are killed every year by firearms.

Or what? They'll call for a ban on firearms? They'll hop in their Prius' and drive to the headquarters and throw a tantrum?

STFU.

Wow, wanting to keep teachers and kids safe is as bad as wanting to do away with unions.

Shrug

And right now, I would hope that arming SOME body in schools will "make sense" to Newtown. It would to me.

Here is the NRA opinion of firearms in schools from 2006. I do not think it has changed since then.

Quote:First, we believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns in America's schools, period ... with the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained security personnel.

We believe America's schools should be as safe as America's airports. You can't talk about, much less take, bombs and guns onto airplanes.Such behavior in our schools should be prosecuted just as certainly as such behavior in our airports is prosecuted.

Of the 6,000 young people the President acknowledges were caught with a gun at school during the past two years, we believe all of them should have been prosecuted. But the truth is that only
5 were prosecuted in 1997 and just 8 in 1998. That's not zero tolerance.

The National Rifle Association believes in no unsupervised youth access to guns, period. We have always supported holding adults responsible for wilfully and recklessly allowing access to firearms.
Just as every kid should have a guardian who knows where he is and keeps him safe, every firearm should have a guardian who knows where it is and keeps it safely stored.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

Since when has the NRA been completely for our rights? They don't care about your rights nearly as much as they care about your money.

James Salt can kiss my crippled backside.

I've heard quite enough from these brain dead emotion driven asshats.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Since when is it a bad thing to protect kids from an active shooter at your own risk? The principal did this very thing. If she would have had a firearm, there would have likely been 3 deaths - shooter included - not 20+.

I fear our lack of a publicity machine is our undoing. Every day we are becoming more and more marginal in the view of the general public. Unfortunately, "perception is reality" is true here...

How are gun rights becoming more marginal? The number of gun owners has gone up by the millions the last few years and until last week, public support for more gun control was lower than anytime in the last 40 years. Gun sales have been at record levels for the last few years. The number of FFLs has started to go up for the first time in 20 years. The NRA and other pro 2A groups have had a ton of money coming in. The majority of anti gun groups have been limping along with skeleton crews of mostly volunteers because they can't pay for a staff. No new major anti gun laws have been passed since 1994. More states are Shall Issue than ever before. We have 4 states with Constituional Carry laws. How are we marginalized again?
