Media bias and the NRA’s not-so-new idea to put ‘COPS in Schools’

The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) proposal last week to place armed police offers in schools has many problems, but the Left’s hysterical response to the idea, calling it everything from “offensive” and “insane” to a “dumb-ass idea,” is no more than another hypocritical and ignorant response from a media herd more interested in pushing a political agenda then honestly representing the truth.

Just as the media threw a tantrum after Hurricane Sandy about Mitt Romney’s year-old suggestion that federal disaster response responsibilities be transferred to localities and private industry (despite the overlooked fact that federal disaster response is already largely “privatized“) the media is in overdrive attempting to redefine the NRA’s not-so-new idea into a fringe position.

Largely unreported in the post-NRA press conference coverage is the fact that the federal government has been providing grants for local governments to place armed security in schools for more a decade.

    Speaking of COPS. I haven’t read or heard anyone ask a very important question. What is the response time for police in your community? How long did it take from the time the kid in Newtown broke into the school to the time the first police officer/sufficient force arrived? The school district in Northern Texas, which now has armed teachers, is in an area where the Sheriff admitted he could not get an officer to any school in less than half an hour. In Newtown’s case even minutes was too long. Unless the police can say they can be there immediately, then you need someone armed at the school.

    VA has cops in schools and they have been there for years, this is not a new idea or anything, as VA since I have been here from 2000 they have had a cop at each school, and yes they carry a gun
