The hilarious thing is President Obama's kids attend a school with 11 armed guards. Not the secret service mind you. Armed guards that are there whether the presidents daughters are there or not. Even if they didn't go to school there, they would still be there. Rahm Emanuel who anti-gun also sends his kids to a school with armed security. Face it people, there are armed guards in banks, hospitals and government buildings would it really be that dumb to have them protect our kids? Aren't they more valuable than money?

I haven't seen an armed guard in a bank for years. If there were only some armed guards at Columbine HS, they could have prevented the gunmen from killing all those people. Oh, wait.

"The hilarious thing is President Obama's kids attend a school with 11 armed guards."...............What is truly "hilarious" is that you or anyone would have the audacity to question the protection of any president's children!! Seriously?! These children are at greater risk of harm or kidnapping of any other children in this country, yet you bring it up? Shame on you.

Making our public school system into armed camps rather than address the horrific proliferation of assault weapons and the gaping holes in background checks is exactly what the NRA hopes for. You see, it increases their profits - just as every additional massacre does. The NRA is nothing other than a shill for the powerful gun industry, using the 2nd amendment as their ruse to increase profits.

It is hilarious. They say that isn't the answer yet they have them at their school. As I said, I am not talking secret service. I am not talking armed guards that are there just for the President's daughters. They were there before his daughters started going there. So yes, it is hypocritical to say that isn't the answer when his very kids attend a school where they felt it is the answer. I want someone from the left to tell me how banning assault rifles is going to stop criminals from getting them? Felons still get handguns all the time. Crackheads get crack. Johns get hookers. Making something illegal does not make it go away.
