I agree with Wayne LaPierre. Let's hire a police officer to protect every school in the country. Join me below the orange thingamajig as to why and how.
First, let me mention that I am a teacher and my first priority is to keep my students safe. I know that having a cop in every school isn't going to stop all of the killings, but it can't hurt and if it saves one life it's worth it. So my proposal is that every police department in the country hires at least one policeman for each school in it's jurisdiction. And I do mean policemen. I don't want a half trained $8 an hour guy off the street. I want well trained policemen who are earning full pay and benefits. They aren't going to come cheap.
So this is how we pay for them. We pass a tax on guns and ammunition. 10% on all hunting rifles, shotguns and handguns holding 10 rounds or less. 25% on any weapon that holds more than ten rounds, or is capable of holding more than 10 rounds. 50% on magazines holding over ten rounds. 10% on hunting ammunition (22LR, .308, etc.) 25% on personal protection ammunition (9mm, .223, etc.).
Think about it. We hire a couple of hundred thousand cops to protect our kids and stimulate the economy at the same time. Gun owners pay for the protection of our children from guns. Seems only fair.
This is Wayne LaPierre's idea. Let's go with it and get gun owners to pay for it.
