The NRA will be shaken up by this latest tragedy in Newtown. This idea of armed guards in the schools is ridiculous - just the cost involved and logistics are impossible. They need to WAKE UP - the public is no longer going to stand for these atrocities. We simply need Common Sense Gun Control in this country without affecting the 2nd Amendment.

Noted. This idea of armed guards didn't work in Columbine, did it? Those that support this notion of armed guards and more guns are marginalizing and totally removing themselves from a serious discussion of potential solutions. And even if the steps that we can take are not complete solutions, they can at least reduce potential injuries and casualties. This notion that the problem of gun violence is complex and there isn't one solution is inane. The time to "solve" a problem isn't when we can solve all of it, but when we can make things better. We can do that now.

You cannot have armed guards EVERYwhere - You can cut down the number of assault weapons and make it more difficult for people to get guns. Duh -

Good grief! Do you fight a fire by throwing fire on it??

The cost of putting armed officers in schools will be app. $7 Billion. The republicans say they do not want more money spent by the government, but they are willing to push the NRA agenda? I guess that shows whose side they are really on.

We need to shun and marginalize the NRA - and get our politicians to do likewise - so we can achieve a safer, saner society.

Protect people, not guns!

Frank, are you a living, breathing human, or a caricature of one: NO Shit! The NRA is not listening?
The NRA has no interest in listening, one can not have a dialogue with this group of lobbyists, doing, intensely, what lobbyists do: supporting the corporate interests that feed them their money.

Hmmm....guess Luntz didn't get the GOP memo on this one. While his comments are a bit surprising, it continues to show the GOP in deep division. We must keep the pressure up on Congress to pass the Assault Weapons Ban. I haven't heard many Dem. voices speaking out...there have been a few. We'll see what happens when the rubber hits the road...bill comes up for a vote. Dem. Sen. Barbara Boxer gave a ridiculous speech supporting armed guards in all schools very recently. Do you know how your Congress critters will vote?

Maybe it would be better to have more PARENTS active in the schools. Or just more pro active in their kid's lives. Maybe your kid won't "like" you to have them report back to you. Maybe it will "embarass" them in front of their peers. Maybe you won't be their "friend" anymore...but maybe it will make them responsible and even help them mature.

The NRA isn't used to listening but telling others what they should do and that firearms and firearm ownership are the answer to everything. Thanks Carrie.
