Op-ed:
The NRA...our last line of protection could be our school's first line of defense
By: Diane Sori

 
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
NRA's Wayne LaPierre

We all know what happened that fateful day in Connecticut when 26 innocent people, including 20 precious children, lost their lives at the hand of a monster. And we all know there was plenty of blame that went around, most misguided...the classics being the 'bad gun' did it...but spouted off just the same to turn a day of horror and unspeakable tragedy into nothing but political fodder for this president's agenda to take away the Second Amendment with its right to bear arms.

And least we forget the liberal media in all this, the liberal media who love to demonize, politicize, and blame law abiding gun owners, making them the bad guys as they perpetrate the lefts cry for more gun control laws.

But even with this we know that the NRA took the brunt of all this misguided blame for NO other reason than they are all that stands between 'We the People' and those wanting to disarm rightful gun owners, and for one reason only...so that only Obama's private army of thugs and henchmen will have weapons to keep us in line.

Using a thinly veiled excuse about the killing of children, Obama is moving full force to further make a mockery of our Constitution...to radically change it to reflect his socialistic view of a 'new' America far different than the one we know, love, and honor...and he wants to start that change by disarming the citizenry.

Saying a ban on assault rifles and other types of firearms would curb violence in our schools is just an excuse, because Obama conveniently forgets that our Second Amendment does that quite nicely if Congress would only free-up whatever funds are necessary to put armed police and/or armed and trained civilian volunteers in every school. Obama claims NO money should ever be spared when the safety of our children is concerned...well let him put his money where his mouth is and cut some of his freebie programs to free-up some dollars for our children's safety.

And putting cops in schools is NOT something new nor is it a novel idea, and that is something Obama conveniently chooses to forget. Bill Clinton himself pledged $60 million to put cops in schools when he was president, so if Billy-Boy can do that so can Obama...and he can do it right now with a simple swipe of his pen...as in sign an Executive Order that actually does something constructive for a change.

So while Obama and his liberal cronies all love to say that an assault rifle ban will protect our children when all other anti-gun laws have failed to do so, he knows damn well, as do we all, that America's children are vulnerable and basically defenseless when they're on school grounds, because NO ban put in place will ever stop 'bad guys' from getting guns if they're determined to do so. If Obama really cared (which we know he does NOT) there is something he can do NOW to at least start the process of making schools safer for our children...he can start by removing the 'Gun Free School Zone' barriers around our schools, because all these zones do is lay out the welcome mat for every wacko out there to inflict major carnage and death upon our children with little risk of anyone shooting back.

And the very organization that Obama and the press so love to blame whenever gun violence occurs anywhere in our country is the very organization that can help secure our schools better than even the police, because the NRA can place well-trained armed volunteers in our schools as protection full time while the police still have to be called either during or after the fact.

So when the NRA's Wayne LaPierre says, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” he knows what he's talking about because if only one person had had a gun that day at Sandy Hook 'the monster' just might have been stopped before 26 innocent lives were lost.
