Gallup: More Americans Favor
School Officials Having Guns
Than Weapon Ban

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Lee Stranahan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/19/2012 8:05:12 PM

A new poll released today by Gallup shows that Americans favor increased security and proactive mental health treatment over gun control. The national poll of a little over 1,000 adults was conducted in the wake of the tragic murders at a Connecticuit school last Friday. As the introduction to the poll says: Americans are most likely to say that an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment venues would be effective

The public, as a whole, is not made up of morons. We know that school shooters have already broken many laws on the books, and another won´t make any difference.

Just rescind the "Gun Free Zone" designation, put up signs that state "Some employees are armed" whether or not anyone really is, and let the criminals worry themselves into moving on down the road.

Then concentrate on Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) laws, making it easier for parents to hospitalize their children, if only for an "observation period" to determine if they are a danger to themselves or others...especially others.

That´s why many Democrats won´t support a gun ban. Other than the nutjob states like Calif., Mass. and a few others, it would be political suicide.

I see no problem with school officials having access to guns or defensive weaponry. It is not practical to walk around with firearms, but if you hear gunfire in the hallway, it would be nice to have a weapon accessible.

If it becomes common knowledge that school administrators or someone in the school is armed and willing to kill or maim anyone attempting to harm children and if those stupid "gun free zone" signs are removed...there will NEVER, I repeat NEVER be another school shooting again. Problem solved.

All these shooters besides being mentally ill are cowards who shoot themselves as soon as police arrive on the scene.

They would be better off having an armed and trained police officer in the schools. You have to figure if the perpetrator of the mass shooting in Connecticut knew that there was an armed police officer inside the entrance of the school, who would have confronted him as soon as he started to break into the locked school, that he probably would not have done what he did. As it was, as soon as he heard the first responders sirens, and knew that they were coming to get him, and he immediately took his own life.

It probably would be a lot cheaper for the school districts if they organized and hired retired police officers to do those security jobs.

I lived and went through school not far from that Connecticut school. Back then we always had guns around, but nobody got shot. In about the 5th grade we took an organized school day trip to the old Winchester Rifle Co. shooting range at New Haven, where after receiving a safety briefing everybody in the class got to shoot .22 Winchester pump rifles. The difference in relevant substance between now and then, was that those violent video games to which the Connecticut perpetrator was addicted did not exist.

This article is a false choice interpretation. Such interpretations are fraught with flaws because they suggest that it´s one or the other and that both cannot co-exist. How about having armed security at schools and a ban on semi-automatic weapons? Both can co-exist.

I don´t support the notion of school officials having guns on the school property. They would represent something that kids could get a hold of. Kids are curious and will find them.

Once again, #12. The purpose of the 2nd amendment is not self-defense or sport shooting or wilderness survival. The only reason that it is there is because the writers knew that sooner or later an overzealous government would want to turn the citizens into subjects and the only known way to prevent that would be to arm the citizens with the kind of arms that can go up against that overweening government´s army. Now, do you understand?

#13 has it right. The solution to problems with the Second Amendment, like those with the First Amendment, is more of what it protects, not less. More free speech overcomes bad speech. More legal guns overcome illegal guns. The illegal shooting stops when the legal guns arrive at the scene.

#12, if you are going to impose your theories on which firearms I might be ´allowed´ to have, do me the courtesy of learning a little bit about them. Being brainwashed by slanted network news teams that work for companies that subject viewers to thousands of hours of gun porn, and I say porn in this case because the average TV show has about as much connection to real world guns as porn does to love.

You could try spending the equivalent amount of time learning about firearms from responsible advocates as you do watching someone like Brian Ross pontificate about them. Better yet, if you hate criminals using guns in crimes, help the NRA get Project Exile going in places like Chicago. Just learning about it would give you better information to suggest future gun laws.

You want to disarm criminals and crazies. Guess what, so does EVERY legal gun owner. What you have to ask yourself is why you want to disarm someone who would only have a order of protection for self defense. Explain to the clerk on the late night shift why they should give up their semi to make you ´feel´ better.

A common report in these school shooting events is that virtually all kindergarten teachers will take any measure to protect their students...even if it means their own death. They are the last line of defense, bless them. Why have we ignored the defensive value of kindergarten teachers? Historicaly, just pointing a gun at these mentaly defective murderers will trigger an autonomic response that causes them to shoot themselves in the head.

Every kindergarten teacher in America with a Walther PPK and a shoulder holster. How´s that for a meaningful solution that puts the protection right in front of our children, at exactly the time that it is needed, in the hands of people who have shown the strength of character to protect our children. I like this option a whole lot better than seeing an army of police officers armed to the gills walking around a crime scene drinking coffee and stringing crime scene tape around everything and I seriously doubt their will be any incidents of kindergarten teachers unloading 137 rounds into any innocent suspects...or high speed chases.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
search tests limits of satellites
Washington Post, by Joel Achenbach and Scott Higham    Original Article

The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has exposed the technological limits of satellites, which can see a license plate from space — if not necessarily read it — but struggle to find a missing jetliner. These limits are shaped by physics, money and practicality. Military and commercial satellites are not closely observing and amassing data about the blank places on the map in lightly traveled seas — such as remote areas of the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from where Flight MH370 vanished from radar. There’s also a trade-off when scrutinizing the surface from space: You can go wide

When the National Zoo’s female sloth bear, Khali, delivered three cubs last December, she consumed one of them right after it was born. Carnivores do this in the wild when there is a sick offspring. A deceased cub in the den can draw predators, the zoo said. But a week later, when Khali consumed a second cub, keepers feared for the third. So for the first time in the zoo’s history, keepers took a sloth bear cub from its mother to raise by hand. Three months later, after weeks of incubators, midnight feedings and quiet sessions in a rocking chair,

Obama’s pathetic response

Early in the Ukraine crisis, when the Europeans were working on bringing Ukraine into the EU system and Vladimir Putin was countering with threats and bribes, one British analyst lamented that “we went to a knife fight with a baguette.” That was three months ago. Life overtakes parody. During the Ukrainian prime minister’s visit to Washington last week, his government urgently requested military assistance. The Pentagon refused. It offered instead military ration kits. Putin mobilizes thousands of troops, artillery and attack helicopters on Ukraine’s borders and Washington counters with baguettes, American-style. One thing we can say for sure in these

Russian mockery of President Obama has taken a bizarre turn. The newly elected Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, has tweeted (in Russian) a photoshopped image of Barack Obama in a Russian military uniform, implying that our president’s behavior can be explained by his purported status as a deep cover Russian agent. Oleg Atbashian of The People’s Cube, a former Soviet propagandist who fled to the West, has a fascinating post explaining what is going on here. Such a jab could have easily come from conservative jokesters in the U.S., as a way to vent their bitterness over Obama´s inept

President Obama declared today that the U.S. will not take military action in Ukraine. I think most of us had worked that out. “What we are going to do,” Obama declared “is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message.” The clear message will be this — please, please don’t invade more territory. In ruling out military action, Obama explained that “the Ukrainians don’t want [an actual war with Russia], nobody would want that.” But if Russia continues to devour their country, the Ukrainians are no less

A former high-ranking EPA staffer convicted of stealing nearly $900,000 by pretending to be a CIA spy had virtually no experience, got his job with help from a college buddy, and went on to play a key role in sweeping environmental regulations, according to a report Senate Republicans released Wednesday. Those regulations remain in place despite John C. Beale’s lack of environmental expertise, Republican investigators said, adding that they want the Environmental Protection Agency to review the work in which Beale was involved during his 24-year tenure. The report said Beale led an “itinerant life” as a police officer and

Federal officials have no qualms flying the friendly skies in style, regularly using executive jets and other planes in the government’s fleet of 1,700 aircraft for everyday travel. But they often don’t track how much such trips cost or the reasons why they skipped cheaper commercial flights in favor of firing up one of Uncle Sam’s aircraft. And lawmakers in Congress — usually charged with overseeing or reining in such expenditures — have their own addiction to luxury travel with a growing tendency to fly first class. Those findings by two separate watchdogs in Congress are the latest examples of a

IT’S EASY to conclude that Vladi­mir Putin’s passionate defense of Russia’s takeover of Crimea “just didn’t jibe with reality,” as Secretary of State John F. Kerry put it. In a speech on Tuesday, the Russian ruler repeated mendacious charges that the Ukrainian government had been hijacked by “nationalists, neo-Nazis, Russophobes and anti-Semites”; voiced his paranoid conspiracy theory about supposed Western sponsorship of popular revolutions, including the Arab Spring; and brazenly compared Russia’s abrupt annexation of Ukraine with the reunification of Germany.

As the Russian national anthem played and cheering lawmakers wept, Mr. Putin and Crimean leaders signed a treaty in Moscow to make Crimea part of the Russian Federation, only two days after the region held a disputed referendum enforced by Russian troops. “In the hearts and minds of people, Crimea has always been and remains an inseparable part of Russia,”

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of
