    if president obama and liberals wish to save the children, I have a proposal: train and arm all the teachers at our schools; invest in american co s that manufacture some of the best firearms in the world. it would create jobs and save lives
    do they really care about the children?

    • OMG!!! Please stop with this arming teacher nonsense!!! The bonding and insurance that would be required for this type of scenario make it utterly, utterly prohibitive in most school districts, not to mention wide-spread opposition by parents. I won't even get started on the pressures that educators are already facing, just to educate our children. To presume that they are even interested or feel competent to act as their armed guards is at best, as stretch, at worst moronic. BTW, have you visited an elementary school lately? Those teachers are stretched so thin and are so challenged just to keep the kids' attention, I cannot imagine them having to juggle an armed weapon on top of what they already do for our children and shame on you for assuming that they would even want to. They did not go to school for that. They went to school to educate our children.

    • Yeah and lets see if they come up with any meaningful improvements in the area of mental healthcare (in the next 2 wks, lol), because this AWB they are going to roll out again would not have saved those kids. It shouldn't be about getting more gun model restrictive legislation just because you hate guns, it should be about saving innocent people from massacres. If you're not doing that, you are wasting the taxpayers time and money.
