Newtown Board of Education wants armed guards in elementary schools; Piers Morgan silent

Gun grabbers balked when NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre announced an initiative to equip every school with an armed police officer after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. How could anyone suggest such a thing?

Well, evidently, the Newtown Board of Education doesn’t find LaPierre’s proposal quite so objectionable, because last night, the board asked for the town’s approval to place one armed full-time police officer in each of Newtown’s four elementary schools.

“Our parents are demanding of us that things are made safe and secure and certain measures are put in place,” Chairwoman Debbie Leidlein said. “So we’re being very thoughtful.”

Thoughtful indeed. In yesterday’s shooting at Price Middle School in Atlanta, the shooter was reportedly disarmed by an armed officer. Imagine that.

Libs have got some serious spinning to do.

What does Musket Morgan have to say about all this?

Speak up, Piers! We can’t hear you.

    Paging Piers Morgan…………… don’t you know that your silence is equivalent to tacit APPROVAL?…………

    It will take Piers about 18 hours to come up with a reply.

      18 hours? I give him at least a day or two. I’ll be surprised if he says anything about it on his show.

        I’ll take the over. :)

      He will still be asking the same tired question, “Why does anyone NEED an assault weapon?”

    As a parent, I want to meet the parent that wouldn’t want an armed guard/officer at the school to put down a nut job wanting to shoot the children.

    When you choose reactionary governance masquerading as prudent legislation, as Bloomy did in New York with his mag grab, the end result are things like TSA, where 11 years after 9-11, we have 90-year-olds from Boca still subjected to strip searches for explosives. Credit to the citizenry of Newtown who understand that a guard’s bullet travels faster than a cell phone signal.
