Barack Obama Unveils $500 Million Gun Violence Package Including Putting 1,000 Police Officers in Schools … I Thought the LEFT Scoffed at Police in Schools Suggested by the NRA?



Today President Barack Obama unveiled a $500 million gun violence plan that included plans to put 1000 police officers in schools. Ok, three things come to mind here that are quite telling and somewhat interesting with regards to Obama’s anti-2nd Amendment agenda in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings. He also proposed his 23 executive orders that in retrospect looked rather weak and lame.

500 million dollars!!!

One, $500 million, that’s it? Barack Obama throws billions around like its water. Obama gave failed green energy companies Solyndra $535 million, Fisker Automotive $529 million, Abound Solar $400 million, Willard and Kelsey Solar Group $700,981, let alone the rest of the green energy boondoggle failures. Yet, when it comes to the safety of the children Obama can only muster a measly $500 million. WOW, how big of him. The above referenced failed companies were provided over $2 billion of tax payer dollars, yet he comes up with $500 million for the children’s safety. NICE!

Two, 1000 police officers? That’s it? How small can this president be? As of 2010,  from the National Center for Educational Statistics there were a reported approximate 98,000 schools in the United States of which 67,000 were elementary schools. To put this in its proper perspective, 1000 police officers represents 1% of all schools and 1.5% of elementary schools. Really Mr. President, that’s your plan to keep the children safe from gun violence like what occurred at Sandy Hook, placing police in 1% of schools in America?  “We the People” can you understand now why I say that Obama is not serious at all?

Three, how is it that Obama is putting any police officers in schools after NBC’s David Gregory and the collective LEFT mocked the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre for proposing that armed guards be at every school in America. The LEFT lost their collective minds when this was suggested, yet Obama considered it, well kinda. So instead Obama split the difference and suggested putting police officers in 1% of the schools. Meanwhile his children are well protected by armed men with guns. No one is saying that Obama’s children should not be protected, of course they should. However, they are no more important than other American parents children. How is it that “We the People’s” children are not deemed worthy of protection as well?

Braced for a fight, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled the most sweeping proposals for curbing gun violence in two decades, pressing a reluctant Congress to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

But the president, speaking at White House ceremony, focused his attention on the divided Congress, saying only lawmakers could enact the most effective measures for preventing more mass shootings.

“To make a real and lasting difference, Congress must act,” Obama said. “And Congress must act soon.”

The president vowed to use “whatever weight this office holds” to press lawmakers into action on his $500 million plan. He is also calling for improvements in school safety, including putting 1,000 police officers in schools and bolstering mental health care by training more health professionals to deal with young people who may be at risk.

Even supportive lawmakers say the president’s gun control proposals – most of which are opposed by the powerful National Rifle Association – face long odds on Capitol Hill.

      Could it be that Barack Obama got wind of yesterday’s preview clip of the NRA’s video regarding the double standard regarding armed school security … one standards for the children of the elite … another standard for the little people.

      The school guards is the same tatic used by Bill Clinton in the 1990′s regarding the federal temperary funding for additional LE.

      This whole event was nothing but a typical socialist dog and poney show. A lot of theatre and little substance. I do believe that the threat of impeachment prevented a direct order about the so called rifes of assault and the reduction of clips and magazine capacities.

      Cato Institute on Gun Control

      Very Good. Discussed DC vs. Heller, AK15 as the standard for personal defense in line with upholding the Heller decision; Obama’s plan to follow the Australian model- push for gun confiscation immediately after a heinous event.

      Cato Reccommendation: The most immediate solution/protection for children- puting armed personnel in schools (possibly why Obmaba conceded and appropriated funds for 1,000 such positions
