Who is honoring the newtown thing?

Report as

Complacency and misguided priorities are the direct cause of such things as the Newtown massacre. Why is that we are cutting mental health services that might identify future shooters? Why is that we can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on football programs, but not afford the salary for just ONE police officer in every school? Why do we pay teachers such a small salary, and then expect them to give their lives defending our children without weapons?

It is all about priorities. Predators will attack the easiest prey. Until we provide trained shooters to defend our schools then it WILL keep happening. There need to be police, or volunteer auxiliary officers, in every school armed with the weapons needed to engage such mentally disturbed people.

An armed man entered one of our schools and a school officer held him at bay with her gun until back up officers arrived and killed the intruder. It's that simple. If you want to protect our children then hire a vet with firearms training and place them in our schools. Or, are our politicians more willing to vote themselves pay raises and let the poor kids die?

They have an armed guard at the social security office here. The windows all have locked shutters. Why are they so willing to pay to protect things that can be rebuilt or replaced, but not pay to protect innocent children. It is a national disgrace. Gun control is not the answer. The crazies will always get guns. PUT SOMEONE in the school with the b@lls to shoot back, and the crazies will look somewhere else to do their thing.

They are willing to do the security thing to protect the wealthy and privileged , but they would rather take away our freedom to defend ourselves instead of leaving us the right to defend ourselves. If every teacher in America was armed with a sidearm, then there would never be another school shooting again. Instead the powers that be would rather use such things as Newtown to take away even more of our freedoms. The think that by building fortress like schools for millions of dollars will stop a madman. Bu!! Sh!T. A .45 slug will stop him and it is a lot cheaper. Even the deterrent factor is a force multiplier saving billions in construction of "secure" schools.

Me! Tomorrow I'm going to wear blue. I'm even going to try to dye my hair blue and/or yellow (although those are the highschool's colors). The elementary school's colors are green and white.
