  •  Who pays for the armed guards (5+ / 0-)

    While I in no way condone the idea of putting armed guards in every school (How's that freedom thing workin' out for ya?), as a rhetorical question, it's worth asking the NRA just who the fuck they think is going to pay the salaries of the armed guards?  Did I hear them offering to support a tax on gun sales to pay the salaries of those they want to hire to stop the "collateral damage" from their wacko interpretation of the second amendment?

    I heard no such thing.

    But with the schools already strapped for funds, maybe it's worth asking if the NRA is willing to put their money where their mouth is.  If not, I would say their interpretation of the Second Amendment, besides being wacky in and of itself, is also a luxury we can't afford.

    sTiVo's rule: Just because YOU "wouldn't put it past 'em" doesn't prove that THEY did it.
