    ARE Obama`s kids more important than mine?

    If he is so against armed guards at school, he needs to set an example and lead the way.

    Until he does, he`s spouting bull.

    Reignblazer-"More important? No. More likely a target? Yes."

    So? That`s just odds. Why should the peons` children be refused protection just because it`s `less likely`?

    If armed guards make his children safer, he can not claim that armed guards in every school would make them `less safe`.

    Ofcourse this fails to land truthfully since one of the executive actions Obama is pushing that does not require congressional approval is: to "Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper
    training for active shooter situations."
    and another is "Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers."

    Wasn`t there a video yesterday about an armed SRO, seems he wants that? Kind of untruthful of the NRA to say he`s against armed guards at schools..

    @Reignblazer. I`m willing to bet a rival gang member is more of a target than the Obama children. A gang leader is more of a target, in the US, than POTUS.

    More important? No. Higher profile target? Yes.

    How effin stupid is this argument I keep hearing for the pro-gun movement? Do we REALLY expect the leader of most powerful country in human history to pretend he doesn`t have a huge target painted on his, and his family`s back for all the crazies and foreign enemies that want him dead?

    When my kids go to school... there is NOBODY that specifically wants them dead, so yeah, I`m not to worried about having armed security guards around all the time. But you can bet I don`t want my President worrying about how many people might want to hurt HIS children, instead of focusing on his job. And that goes for WHOEVER is in office.

    Just a desperate organization struggling to keep its relevance in an ever changing cultural climate. Their money I guess.

    Come on guys, let`s drop the vitriol.

    1. Obama`s kids are under a constant and very real threat. Would anybody deny that? Most kids aren`t.

    2. Security guards DON`T always fix the problem. They certainly didn`t in Colombine right?

    3. There is a lot more than a cop with a gun walking around Obama`s kids` school. There is a massive level of security that nobody imagines is even remotely feasible for every school.

    4. Even if kids are safe at school that doesn`t do anything about their safety at a mall or movie theater until we make it harder for crazy people to get weapons.

    I`m not saying I agree with the new position or gun control period. However this commercial is dumb.

    Okay, I`m willing to debate gun stuff until the cows come home, but this is just effing stupid. The safety of the president`s family (regardless of who the president is) is a national security issue precisely because if threatening forces thought they could leverage a threat against the president`s family to gain leverage against the president and national security, they would.

    Can the same be said for your kids or mine? No. If the NRA wants to make good points in the gun control argument, fine. But this is just dumbass broken BS.

    Here, I`ll end the whole debate on gun control right now. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Get real on societal impact on people who lose it and go kill people with guns. Form a well regulated militia controlled by the people in the state and not the federal government. Government must give technologies that it posess`s to these free states so that they may defend themselves against a tyrannical or oppressive government. The End (No political affiliation or agenda, just going by the bill if rights)

    @MeGrendel - No way in hell am saying we shouldn`t worry about the safety of our kids. My school district keeps every door locked with only one electronically locked point of entry with cameras to see who is trying to get in. Select teachers are trained in crisis operations and police officers whenever possible are either on premise or patrolling. There ARE things we can do.

    But to equate a high profile target, under constant threat by highly motivated and possibly even trained attackers, as the same as the remote possibility that a mentally unstable dickweed tries to shoot his way through the front door -- is retarded.

And Sharia Law. Derp. Derp. Derp.

    @JoexBro - Should fully automatic M-16 rifles be allowed in the general public`s hands? How about an M-249 SAW?

    You can debate this, obviously, but I don`t think the founders envisioned the raw destructive power that might one day be easily available to ordinary citizens. While the 2nd amendment guarantees our right to bear arms, I doubt it`s meant to cover ANY arms you can manage. Where we draw that line can surely be argued and challenged, but I doubt many ordinary individuals don`t want a line at all.

    They call Obam an elitist hypocrite. That is a true statement. He proves it everyday. But like my mamma said "that`s like the pot calling the kettle black". I left the NRA a long time ago after I figured out all they want is more money from you, and only really support the extreme gun owners, not the average everyday gun owner. You know, the one who doesn`t need a large magazine to hit his target, or a semi automatic rifle for hunting. I own none of these, but taking away my right to have one kinda irks me. Oh, and I prefer revolvers too semi auto pistols. You don`t have to remember to pick up your brass if you are in a hurry.

    You clearly know nothing about weapons. An average citizen MAY NOT own a military grade weapon. Only a specially licensed, federally licensed citizen may own a military grade weapon. But listening to the media blow a bunch of smoke is easier than thinking and researching facts. Oh, and all the school stuff, religion should not be forced in public schools, just private. The rest of the kids can get it on Sunday. And the ten commandments in the courtroom? Not really an argument available as our laws are based on the ten commandments, but why remind the criminals right? A

    And yet, when they wrote it into the constitution, they had in mind the most powerful and deadly hand-held weapon of the time.

    dirtysteve00-"Like they would raise a weapon against the armed forces if the time came."

    You seem to be that, if the government were to turn it`s own armed forces upon it`s citizens, there`d actually be much of that all volunteer force left? I can assure you, the majority of the armed forces would be on the side of the citizens.

    I`m pretty sure that all of you claiming the Constitution as your reason for insisting on the "right" to own military grade rifles and ammunition
    When the 2nd amendment was written, the guns owned by the people weren`t military grade, they were BETTER. The standard issue firearm for the army was a musket, while the typical citizen-farmer owned a long rifle which has twice the range, twice knock-down power, twice the rate of fire, and more than twice the accuracy. That meant that a group of farmers could easily take out twice their number of soldiers in an open field without suffering a single casualty.

    And by your logic the 1st amendment should only apply to hand-powered printing presses and not to radio, TV, cable, satellites, or the Internet, all of which our Founding Fathers could have NEVER imagined.

    Why? well, just about every group with an axe to grind will try to get to the states by abducting or killing the kids of the president.. that would be good PR. As in, the usa cant even keep their kids safe even if they know they are in harms way.

    do you want to call everyone with a gun a potential terrorist NRA? and if so, shouldnt there be less of them then?

    It`s not a stereotype, it`s an observation of who posts what in different threads. It was definitely a broad generalization of "all of you" though. If some of you are strict constitutionalists, it would be nice to see you stick up for things like separation of church and state.

I hope they make ten of these for every one video of a polar bear sitting on some ice floe all alone I`ve the misfortune of seeing. And just ask yourself what would you lefties have done if Bush had done something like Obama`s executive orders for a policy you didn`t like?

    `You seem to be that, if the government were to turn it`s own armed forces upon it`s citizens, there`d actually be much of that all volunteer force left? I can assure you, the majority of the armed forces would be on the side of the citizens.`

    Kind of mangled the language there kid. Your raise a point, how realistic is it to say the governement will oppress you, if they have no force to oppress you with?
    Assuming they did, I still think all the `Molon Labe` loudmouths would run a mile.
