NRA airs new TV ad criticizing Obama

"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" a narrator says in the 30 second ad. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school."

It really is an excellent point that you can make against just about any anti-gun politician or celebrity. These people wouldn't give up their armed guards for anything, but they expect you to just hope the police get there in time.

The NRA has a lot of balls publishing that - considering that most of their members are the very people that his kids need to be protected from.

Haven't you heard? NRA members are always in the news committing heinous acts, especially against children.

The NRA is being overly dramatic.

Silly ad.

I really don't understand why anyone would NOT want armed guards/cops at the child's school.

My public middle and high schools both had a full time cop on campus. I just assumed all public schools did.

They are called "School Resource Officers."

I would much rather have cops in schools than private security.

What is wrong with pulling some money from fighting wars and hiring more cops for schools.

Cost benefit analysis. As tragic as these shooting are they're statistically rare. However, that's difficult to stomach when we think with our hearts over our brains in these situations.

SROs were the best things ever to happen at a school. They were safe and made me feel safe. I always knew where they were in case i needed help and it helped prevent any stupid acts. We lost our SRO officer for one year due to funding and that same year we had $4000 dollars worth of band equipment stolen. There was one time where an officer had to intervene in a fight where a student from another school who was not supposed to be there came over to our high school and attacked some kid. The SRO dropped his radio and literally 10 minutes, the whole school was under lock down by police, there were walls of cops blocking off certain hallways because they thought they had an injured officer.

Seriously, when I have kids, I want him/her to go to a school with armed guards or at least an SRO.

EDIT: I feel like people are making armed guards to be like robots with guns in schools. When really they are more like fathers and mothers and human beings protecting other kids with guns. One helped me in middle school way back when to stand up to a bully because if he were to come and intervene, it would make things worse. He was right.

TIL the NRA does not know that the president of the US has different protection requirements than most other people.

peytonracer4 01-16-2013 07:54 AM

I do agree that a SRO is a good thing to have. Although my highschool was HUGE and he probably couldn't prevent everything, I definitely prefer to have him there rather than not. I think it's the next best thing behind tactically training each and every teacher with a firearm and having then be armed. It's also cheaper because if I were a teacher I would want a steep pay increase for having that training be necessary.

I'm sure you're equally as excited to receive your Sticky Buddy, Micro Touch Magic Max, Perfect Tortilla Pan and WaxVac.

No one said you needed to be smart to own a gun.

There is a difference between different requirements and flat out banning that same protection to other citizens.

honestly, if you were to put the offer out there for training, some would take it for the same (shitty) pay that they already get. It would be like first responders in a company work setting. i mean it's not cool, to not pay teachers extra to do it, but id rather have teachers who want the training because of the training than teachers who want the training because of the raise.

i misread your post and now im too lazy to change mine. sorry about that.

edit: i must not be that sorry. okay im sorry about misreading your post. not sorry about my laziness to edit.

Cops are local, schools are local. Take one cop and tear him away from the oh-so-important task of writing window tint tickets and have him/her hang out at the school. Duh.

Irrelevant, and Obama just signed a law extending SS protection to him and his family for life (along with Clinton, Bush, etc.).

Bloomberg walks around with an army. Politicians are not more important than you are.
