    Exactly what is the difference between an assault rifle and any other semi automatic rifle. I would love to hear this.
    It would be exceedingly hypocritical to be trying to force an assault rifle ban *because of mass shootings* and then not allow the people hired to prevent mass shootings from being equally armed and at a disadvantage.

    But if ARs arent 'the problem,' then why do they want a ban?

    The Blaze - Media Bias/Fact Check

    RIGHT BIAS
    These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

    Overall, we rate The Blaze strongly Right Biased based on story selection that almost always favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to a few failed a check and loaded emotional headlines.
    But did you see any direct far-right bias in the article? I checked on the same thing for the source. I still thought the article was pretty straightforward.

    Kids in this country get plenty of experience already with vets and the military. I'm not opposed to meet and greet but I could do without armed guards.

    Says who? Where is that rule written in stone?

    Are you one of those folks that has the infantile belief that there is honor among criminals?

    Bad people do bad things. There is no such thing as a target that is off limits. It's dangerous to believe it is.

    Yep. Sad when we have to protect our children MORE due to political rhetoric.

    But if they need or want the jobs, I think it's great.

    They want to ban everything. "Assault rifles" are just the first phase.

    Oh? Where?

    And do you feel the 'armed guards' are dangerous?

    It's written in law, when countries make it more difficult for madmen to get guns. I don't put my faith in criminals, I put my faith in action.
