NJ gov: Armed guards won't make schools safe

I agree with him but I don't think the idea by the NRA was for this idea to be implemented. It was meant to put the liberals on the defensive. Whilst I am no fan of NJs gun laws, at least Christie is logic and not emotion based. He actually brings up the point about mental illness and violence in video games being a factor.

Quote:NJ gov: Armed guards won't make schools safer

NEWARK, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that posting armed guards outside schools won't make classrooms safer or encourage learning, warning against turning schools into armed camps.

For such a plan to be effective from a law enforcement perspective, the Republican governor said armed officers would have to be positioned outside every classroom, not just at the front entrance, because there are many ways to enter a school.

"You can't make this (school) an armed camp for kids," he said.

Christie stopped short of commenting directly on the proposal by the National Rifle Association that armed police officers be stationed in every American school to stop the next killer "waiting in the wings." Christie said he hadn't yet read the proposal.

The governor, who is a former federal prosecutor, has called for a thoughtful dialogue on gun violence, mental illness and exposure to violent video games.

He also said it's up to police to make sure New Jersey's gun laws, which are the second toughest in the country behind New York's, are enforced.

Christie noted the success of a recent gun buy-back program in reducing the number of weapons on the street. A two-day buy-back in Camden returned 1,137 weapons, so many that the program's $250,000 budget was exhausted within hours and had to be replenished, he said.

You don't need a dozen heavily armed guards in SWAT gear. One armed guard and the ability for teachers who choose to carry would be more thab enough. Mass shooters want helpless victims to murder. Any armed resistence would deter all but the most insane from opening fire in a school. Leaving them defenseless isn't going to solve a damn thing.

Nothing good as ever come out of NJ.

For them to be against it, it must be a good idea.

I personally think the guard should dress like a teacher so has not to stand out. The kids wouldnt need to know.

Like the air marshalls.

And I disagree with Christie (f' him, he's a crap conservative anyway) it won't make us safer. It may not prevent every death but a response time in seconds is far faster than the minutes for a normal police reponse.

Have him push a broom around now and then, they'll think he's a janitor or maintenance person and ignore him. Or her.

Kids aren't stupid. They'll know.

A control room with access to school video monitors with occasional patrols would be a better idea, IMO.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Sorry Chris,
One armed guard easily would have made a difference st Sandy Hook, would it not?

He's a NJ gun grabber, no surprise he would support.....well, . gun grabbing.
