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.
Perhaps somebody (I'm not going to mention any names) big in Politics should remember the old cliche': What's Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander?
I'm a little confused......If the President of the United States wants to disarm all the American people [for the real reasons only known to members of the United Nations] then how will his assigned Secret Service staff PROTECT him and the rest of his socialist..... I mean political puppets.
Does this mean that the President of the United States will not be able to protect himself or his family?????????. I'm a little confused
Just to end all this confusion, This whole agenda is NOT ABOUT GUN CONTROL IT'S ABOUT CONTROLLING AND WEAKENING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND TO LIMIT OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE.........FREEDOM
Frank, of course he doesn't intend for the police or the military, nor the secret service, FBI or others to be without weapons, it is only the civilian citizens like yoiu and I that would not be able to protect ourselves.
Perhaps we can find the real answer is what Obama said during his initial campaigning...about having a civilian military policing the citizens in America arming them with guns but not us.
Frank, what I meant was that you are right, his intention is to make sure that the citizens who are, by the 2nd Amendment, promised the right to bear arms are no longer to have that right and he will use anyone he can find to help him promote that including the Chinese.
Diane, you are right, he has every intention to have a civilian military.
