    A great man once said
    "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country"

    I'm licensed to carry & do carry all the time to protect myself & others from armed criminals.
    From what I see America NEEDS more real Americans carrying to stop this insane crime wave that is attacking our children.:mad:
    If the american teachers need something to help them teach our children we give it to them. If american teachers need to be trained & armed we need to give that to them. This is nothing new teachers in Israel are trained & carry arms to protect the children under their care.:eek:
    If there is a threat to our children the teachers are the only ones that are there in the class room and should be ready to repel that threat. I'm not saying that they should be the only defense but they should pick up the ball and put them selves between criminals & this nations future, "Our Children'.
    I have been told that most people think it would be unreasonable to train and arm teachers.
    We know from past history that most school shooters are cowards. They take their own life as soon as they meet armed resistance.
    This would be the only real answer is to train, license & arm all teachers and school officers.

    Kinda odd how it seems most schools seem to try teaching "guns are bad", and here we are saying we need to teach them to carry that same thing they are not supportive of.

    But yes, I agree. Our schools cannot afford to give a good curriculum, so obviously they can't afford to hire guards. Just train all teachers properly so they can earn their CCW, and support them carrying. Heck, even if the school was to buy them the edc of their choice, it'd still be cheaper than hiring armed guards!

    words from our current POTUS "we can't tolerate this anymore", "the price of freedom"


    President Barack Obama assured the grieving, shell-shocked Newtown community on Sunday that "you are not alone" and vowed sternly to wield "whatever power this office holds" in a quest to prevent future mass shootings.
    "We can't tolerate this anymore," Obama said from behind a podium on the stage of a Newton High School auditorium, as adults wept, or hugged, or sat quietly, many hugging small children. "These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change."
    "In the coming weeks, I'll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens -- from law enforcement, to mental health professionals, to parents, and educators -- in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have?"he said.
    The speech, broadcast nationwide, offered the bold suggestion that Obama might engage lawmakers on the subject of gun control -- a topic that has not been among his top priorities during his presidency.
    "We can't accept events like this as routine. Are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage?" Obama said. That the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year, after year, after year is somehow the price of our freedom?"
    There were sobs from the crowd as the president read the first names of the 20 children slaughtered at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday and paid tribute to the six adults who died defending them. Twenty-six candles in twenty-six shining glass vases shone from the base of the podium.
    Obama anticipated — and dismissed — some of the time-honored arguments against stricter restrictions on guns. "We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true," he said. "No single law no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society."
    "But that can't be an excuse for inaction. Surely we can do better than this," he said.
    Across the country, people grieved for the 20 children — six and seven years old — and six adults killed in one of the worst mass shootings in America's history.
    In Newtown and elsewhere, mourners gently piled notes, stuffed animals and American flags, balloons and flowers, in makeshift memorials where candles fluttered.
    New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz played wearing a shoe that read "R.I.P. Jack Pinto" in black marker, an homage to a child slain in the massacre. Flags from coast to coast flew at half-staff. As the president's motorcade climbed the hill up the school, he could glimpse a few homes with Christmas lights -- but most were dark.
    "Here in Newtown, I come to offer the love and prayers of a nation," the president said. "I am very mindful that mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow, nor can they heal your wounded hearts."
    "I can only hope it helps for you to know you are not alone in your grief that our world too has been torn apart. That all across this land of ours, we have wept with you. We've pulled our children tight," Obama said. "And you must know that whatever measure of comfort we can provide, we will provide. Whatever portion of sadness that we can share with you to ease this heavy load, we will gladly bear it."
    In the auditorium where the president spoke, the audience included a large number of elementary school-age children, some carrying cuddly toys like teddy bears, according to pool reporter Stephen Collinson of Agence France-Presse.
    Before the service, Obama met privately for more than an hour with families of the victims and emergency workers who responded to the crisis. As those workers entered the auditorium, the crowd erupted in a standing ovation. Some traded long hugs with members of the audience.
    "We needed this. We needed to be together," said Rev. Matt Crebbin, the senior minister at Newtown Congregational Church. "These darkest days of our community shall not be the final word heard from us."
    Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, describing his meeting with Obama, said that the president had called Friday "the most difficult day of his presidency."
    By 4 p.m., the line cars trying to reach the interfaith vigil stretched more than 2 miles from Newtown High School back through Sandy Hook -- and its growing makeshift memorial -- to Saint Rose church, the site of several vigils for (and hoax threats related to) Friday's massacre.
    In Sandy Hook center, a lawn displayed lights with the phrase "FAITH. HOPE. LOVE." Across the street, a sign wrapped around a street lamp read, "Heaven must have been short on 27 angels."

    The president spoke about the shooting on Friday, his voice choked with emotion, one finger wiping away tears as they welled up. He vowed to "take meaningful action, regardless of the politics" to try to prevent future such tragedies. But hours before, White House press secretary Jay Carney had decreed that "today's not the day" to discuss possible gun control measures.
    The Obama administration has reportedly considered new gun restrictions in the past, only to shelve them.
    The White House has shied from seeking tough new action from Congress — where new restrictions on gun purchases would likely run into stiff Republican opposition.
    Obama's speech was the fourth in his presidency to memorialize a mass shooting. After the January 2011 rampage in Tucson, AZ, where then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was critically injured, the president spoke at a memorial for the six people killed, including Christina Taylor Green, 9.

    My 2 cents...

    One of these days the liberals that run this country and teach our children will

    WAKE UP to the realities of the world we live in today !! WE are surround by enemies,

    both foreign and domestic that seek to destroy everything we have built and stand for !!

    And there is no law, no legislation, no words...NO STOPPING the people who wish to bring down

    our way of life. All firearm manufacture could stop tomorrow...all ammo manufacture could stop

    tomorrow...and there would still be a will and a way for our enemies to try to destroy US. This is the way

    of the world we live in today...and just about every nation on the planet, save one...US, has learned that harsh

    lesson and begun to deal with it. Every airport in the world save the ones in the United States ( pre 911 ) have had armed guards

    stationed...just about every school in Europe, South America, Mexico and countless other places protect their children with private and public

    armed security...Israel has been doing this since they came into existence...and WE, as a nation, should also learn this lesson !! This is the world we

    live in...everyday I wake up and strap on because I know this is what needs to be done to protect ME and MINE...




    And that's how I feel about it...carry on !!

    Maybe if they stopped spending money on trying to "build self-esteem" and other liberal mind-warping garbage, they'd have the funds to hire a retired cop or veteran to be on the campus and check in visitors. Or how about we stop sending money to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood and use those funds to hire the guards?

    Very well said Shooter!;)

    America is under attack from within it is becoming a type of american terrorism. It has not unified yet but we as citizens should arm ourselves that means to conceal & carry everywhere we lawfully can to prevent our enemies to try to destroy US. They may not have realized it yet but our schools, malls, theaters and other gun free zones are our week point. All it would take is for a few gunmen to take over a large school or mall & we would have full blown terrorism on US streets. Because they know very few of us carry & even less have had any training in firearms.

    Agreed, and I've been around long enough to remember that Nikita Khrushchev stated that we would be destroyed from within.

    I'm really surprised some Muslim hasn't strapped on an explosive vest and walked into a crowded mall at Christmas time and blow himself up, I know they are here among us just waiting for the right time.
