Well, well…say it isn’t so….

Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact.

The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.

If you dismiss this by saying, “Of course they have armed guards — they get Secret Service protection,” then you’ve missed the larger point.

The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC’s David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren’t used (and weren’t even allowed).

Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.

  • Only the important people get armed guards. The rest of us little pissants are supposed to give up our guns and become victims.

  • WTexas

     Yes, you are correct. They want to dissarm us so we can’t fight back against their ill intentions.  They are currently evaluation how the general population will respond to arms confiscation.

  •  Lurking behind the debate over gun control in the US is the debate over expanding government versus freedom. The framers of the US Constitution came down on the side of freedom and limited government. The founders knew men naturally desire to be free, even if some men abuse that freedom. They likewise knew that it is inherent in government, even a necessary government, to diminish freedom. Many bureaucrats in government, today, do not understand the limits of government in the US and come down on the side of an ever-expanding government power. They want to diminish more and more freedom. Whenever an incident with guns happens that abuses freedom, these power-hungry, government bureaucrats become afraid. They know citizens have guns and there may come a time when those citizens will use their guns to keep their freedom. There is only so much Americans will take from their government. High taxes, corruption, and self-serving politicians are tolerable up to a point, but there is a point beyond which government officials should not go. When they go past that point, citizens will take out their guns. If government officials go to bed at night and fear citizens have guns, it is a good thing. Let them fear and let freedom ring.

    A large majority of the military and police forces will not obey orders to confiscate firearms. The multiple of reasons when polled were as follows, its a suicide mission. Majority of lawful gun owners would rather shoot the trespassing personnel intending on stealing from them then hand over the 2nd amendment so for the police they would likely prefer to resign then be shot in the face for breaking the constitution. The job is risky enough and doesn’t pay enough nor could it pay enough to go door to door and say hand over your property please, which brings us back to the being shot in the face. Rest of the reasons were its not a lawful order, even if passed into law its unconstitutional, not in line with the bill of rights and its being pass would be treason. Some Military and police have an understanding of whats right and whats wrong, most are conservative.
