Protect all the children with guns

--
The Daily Star

---- — Gun-control hypocrites, gun-free zones and the children of regular Americans are vulnerable. The Sidwell Friends school in Washington, D.C., has 11 armed security guards. The Obamas chose to send their daughters to Sidwell.

These 11 armed guards are not Secret Service employees. They are school employees who have been there ages before Obama was elected president.

Elitists like NBC’s David Gregory have children who attend Sidwell. Deceivers against school vouchers for the less-fortunate, a pestiferous environment exists! Bulletproof backpacks for your children, armed security guards for their children! Politicizing school shootings; and “Fast and Furious” remains Obama’s bloodiest gun scandal.

Chinese parents were also horrified on Friday, Dec. 14, 2012. Twenty-two school children and an elderly woman were critically wounded in a knife attack at the Chenpeng Village Primary School.

Within 10 minutes, a man armed with a kitchen knife terrorized a Japanese elementary school in a stabbing spree that left eight schoolchildren dead and injured 21 other people.

There are more than 22,000 gun laws already on the books. Rapid-fire automatic weapons were banned in 1934. Semi-automatic guns fire one round at a time. Established case law holds that the police are neither obligated nor liable for failing to protect.

Victims have no recourse if the police fail to respond or fail to protect citizens from harm. Calling 911 is no substitute for a gun. More children drown each year in bathtubs and swimming pools than by gun violence. Should bathtubs and swimming pools be banned? Should schools remain gun-free zones, except Sidwell?
