But enough deflection, either 'conservatives' stand up to protect and that means going to the school administrations and working to set-up semi-retired combat vets with schedules to show the liberals what good can come from reasonable folks with firearms.
Orrrrr we quit bitching about paying taxes to hire folks that will do the protecting of our schools. You don't want to get a shovel and maintain our highways, we pay taxes for that.
Time to quit trying to do everything on the cheap and claim lowering taxes boosts the economy. Lowering taxes starves the system and it can't provide the services we suddenly discover would have been nice to have had inplace PRIOR to the mass murder in Conn.
Not Principles with M4s as one 'conservative' politician claimed. Not middle aged teachers with a bare minimum of training, not 'employees' with a wheel gun illegally in her locker...
A really thought out PROFESSIONAL plan that won't be cheap and won't be done by a hodge podge of amateurs which is what 90% of the teachers would be.
'Conservatives' are just like everyone else- have someone else do the heavy lifting, the talk of what one CCW could have done rings hollow because 99% of the CCWs out there are not really interested in anything more than protecting their own lives (nothing wrong with self preservation) and seem more interested in using the fig leaf of protecting society to cover firearm ownership... (as long as the firearm owners are up front about it, nothing wrong there either)
