NRA School Safety Report Recommends Arming Teachers, Loosening Gun Laws (UPDATE)

NRA School Safety Report Recommends Arming Teachers, Loosening Gun Laws (UPDATE)

Commented Apr 2, 2013 at 20:49:40 in Politics

“Yeah, that teachers desk... whoo, that's secure, all the security of a tumbler lock. Cheap metal desk with a gun rattling around the file drawer. Yeah, that's a "gun" safe in a school that they are talking about. So they are going to spend scads of money on gun safes and teachers desks, and gun training... aren't these the same people who are trying to gut funding out of schools that don't perform to certain standards on tests. So the NRA is going to train these teachers to shoot. 40-60 hours of gun training? When? teacher inservice day? So I guess the right will start wanting to keep the teachers around since they spent all that money to train these super soldier educators. Watch the right will start squawking about the cost to retrain the newly hired every year...we have to keep those educators trained like an army trained by Steven Segal. Lets think about that for a minute, the volunteers who are training teachers? Oh wow...”

“A few years ago I worked with a lady who's brother worked with a gun manufacturer who cleaned their weapons with acetone. she would buy them gallons of the stuff at the home center I worked at. The information came out after I was let go, but it was determined that acetone was a carcinogen... don't clean a weapon, in front of a TV because you aren't paying attention. As an Interior Designer with even the minimal training in HVAC specs, your house isn't ventilated enough with enough air exchanges with fresh air when you do so that you aren't effecting the young children, the elderly and most importantly yourself from the noxious fumes. By all means teach kids proper handling of weapons, but understand that there is a proper place to clean them as well as shoot. I think if we start the practice of teaching the young in proper places to clean weapons, well ventilated away from distractions these incidents decline. Its kind of like doing tornado drills in schools you want the response to the need to be I must seek shelter. Well in this case, you want the immediate response to be: I have a gun to clean I have a specialized area to do that in with the proper ventilation. If I change someones habits I'm glad, if the cleaner isn't as caustic or carcinogenic I'm relieved, but maybe it needs to be treated as if it is in this instance don't you?”

“Its not a perfect solution... but I think there needs to be psychology involved to get people who have weapons who shouldn't to either reduce or give them up. Which is what I was trying to say with the Ole miss rebel flag solution. Whether its an economic factor like increase in homeowners liability insurance if the weapons aren't stored appropriately with children in the home, or social pressure. Its becoming a problem, when a child shot himself because he thought a gun was toy because it was bubblegum pink. These are weapons not fashion accessories to match a coach bag and iphone cover...”

“I think in this case the idea of a bullet costing $5000 is a good idea. done this way... a bullet sales quota. Manufacturers can only make a certain amount for private sales, of course this wouldn't apply for state federal governments and the military, dealers can only sell a certain amount per year or per quarter, and then the supply is limited so the cost has to be raised to cover the dealers overhead. It would also raise the prices on the guns as well. Its kind of like how ole miss removed the rebel flag from the football games by banning the poles that the flags waved from not the flag itself. Yes I would like to prevent people from having vast stockpiles of weaponry, 3-4 weapons per person fine pass. A collector of antiques that are restored and displayed safely... fine.

“I thought that too. There are some things be it for the security of the nation and the people on the ground that the American people don't need to know. Does this involve a cover up per se, yeah, but how else does intelligence get gathered? Its not like the CIA can do a google search or friend Al quaida to take a look at their facebook wall, there has to be real people on the ground gathering the information at the source, at great personal risk to themselves. This isn't a cover up its an intelligence miss of chatter about such an attack, but its hardly yellow cake uranium lie that the Bush Admin. used to get us into Iraq.”

Maher was CLEARLY joking... he was on a late show... this was hardly a press release or announced in the asinine way that Trump does all his announcements. Plus Maher wasn't asking to see Trumps birth certificate, he wanted proof that Trump isn't a brain damaged ape. Clearly Trump has gone out of his way to prove that he is exactly that and bribable whether the offer is real or imagined.”

“Yes! My favorite political scary story from 2010 is back.... the terrorist anchor baby. An intrepid young mother from a muslim country advanced in pregnancy and faith finds her way to the mexican border with the US. Somehow manages to survive being smuggled across, its only desert after all. Has the baby in America, waits around long enough for the birth to be recorded and not be captured by authorities. Then spirits across the border and flies back home to her country. Where the child is indoctrinated into extremist dogma. This is just too elaborate, too implausible, because a woman in advanced pregnancy is so mobile and surefooted. Uh, no, too many variables for everything to work. , and it assumes a lot will fall into place, of a plan just to have radicalized muslim US citizens 18 years from now. When we have US citizens and adults even volunteering to do stuff for them now. I think that is the big story is the disenfranchised and the mentally ill of our society gets persuaded to do awful things for the sake of a belief system and in exchange get unconditional acceptance by a group that they never felt before.”

keramos on Jan 5, 2013 at 10:32:20

“Pregnant Mexican Muslims, stealing across the desert in the middle of the night.  Embedding themselves in our society.  And then, 17 years after crossing, they arise like a plague of locusts and commit social atrocities like equality which, as we know all to well, leads to La Lay Sharia .  They don't even push it in English

and that's the next thing . . they'll be in schools speaking IslamicSpanish - ShariaSpanish and, finally, Sharia only

The end is certainly near.”

Also, since she has made it her business to be the discussion of everyone, she needs to expect- that as human beings- we are going to take this news with a shake of our head and hum to ourselves: God help that babe. I mean no disrespect, because as we would if this was a family member we would be talking smack and then hugging the parents with congratulations. The joke is human nature...
