Re: NRA press conference LIVE 9:45AM CST

I think another example of how things get spun and misrepresented is how the media is saying the NRA is callimg for more guns. I don't think they are calling for more guns. It's my opinion they are calling for more of us to get off our rearends and be part of the solution by getting actively involved and that we be allowed to use the guns we already have to help protect our kids and make schools safer.

Just heard a segment on FoxNews saying the NRA is calling for more guns to solve the problem. The problem is a people problem and the solution is a people solutions. Just as guns aren't the problem, neither are they the solution. We need to focus less on guns and more on people if we really want a solution. I think that is what the NRA tried to communicate and that is what I heard.

I think we should have both, armed police officer and armed staff. In addition, schools should allow CHL parents to supplement the other two.

Put me down as a volunteer to help with the school shield program. I think with some training parents and teachers with CHLs can be a great fill in and supplement to the armed police and help defray some of the cost.

Re: NRA press conference LIVE 9:45AM CST

I haven't read the transcript yet but I did listen to the speech when he gave it. I took what he said to mean that we find ways to afford to protect other things we value, why not our kids? I also took it that he proposed we redirect some funds from other less valuable things and use it to help school districts provide protection for our kids.

I don't favor more federal funds being spent on schools as I see education as a state and local responsibility but I would sure rather redirect the money we are sending to countries that hate us and want to do us and our allies harm and use it for the protection of our kids. Plus, our local districts can't afford more unfunded mandates.

I also think the protesters showing up and acting like they did was good for our cause. They came across as complete irrational emotional idiots and I support their 1st Amendment to do so.
