  •  NRA is just a shell company (6+ / 0-)

    and a shell of its former self.

    It is now simply the Security Contractors and Gun Manufacturers Association.

    The NRA has started an arms race on the streets of America. An arms race with no end with tens of thousands of innocent casualties. And billions of billions of dollars for the SCGMA.

    That's the only way to honestly interpret: "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

    Having an armed security officer with a hand gun means the armed assailants will simply use body armor. Remember LA in 1997?

    So security officers will have to by more and more powerful guns - assault weapons.

    Then the assailants will simply opt to attack outside of the school - recess, bus stops.

    So security officers will have to be outside with their assault weapons and deployed on school buses. But that is more than law enforcement can handle so guess who? The security contractors that were killing civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan will be entrusted to protect our children. Perfect timing too. The contractors were seeing business decline with Iraq and Afghanistan winding down.

    But reasonable people have one very important to ask before we submit to this madness.

    How did the bad guy with a gun get his gun in the first place?
