    The National Guard isn't trained to deal with lone beserkers in the midst of crowds of civilians.

    In addition, the actual risks do not justify this.  At all.

    This is a truly disgusting over-reaction, and it's following directly the NRA's playbook.

      linked article so went to Boxer's website.  This is the press release about her proposed legislation:

      http://boxer.senate.gov/...

      Boxer is looking for funding for safety programs and one includes funding for governors who want to provide security to schools.

      I do agree that a constant presence of military on public school campuses is Orwellian.

      When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin

      •  She wants a loophole allowing it and funding (0+ / 0-)

        for it.

        In other words - she's pushing it.
