TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! READER PERSPECTIVE: OUTRAGE OVER NRA "ARMED SECURITY IN SCHOOLS" PROPOSAL OVERLOOKS REALITY IN KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!



Endless culture war debate and the ongoing attempt to take away 2nd Amendment rights stirs in Kansas City but seems to overlook local reality.

To wit . . .

CHECK OUT THIS IMPORTANT PERSPECTIVE FROM A TKC READER WHICH OFFERS A REALITY CHECK ON ARMED SECURITY IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!

"My high school had metal detectors, armed guards inside the building, surveillance, and KCPD parked outside the building. So I don't understand the backlash to Wayne LaPierre's suggestion to put more armed guards in schools? Or is it only okay for schools in the urban core?"

And once again we realize that shock over suburban school shooting is really just a late manifestation of gun violence concerns that have long existed in the urban core . . . Only now, middle-class white people care because the safety of their kids is on the line.

A long-awaited moment of evil opportunity for the leftists to further their evil aims at enslaving Americans and destroying what precious little liberty that remains in the U.S. - and the gun-grab is only part of it.

Not mentioned: Two armed guards were at Colorado's Columbine HS and were engaged in a gunfight with the two kid killers, but they were outgunned by automatic fire weapons.

No automatic weapons were used at Columbine. Quit spreading BS.

The way I understand it, the legislation that our leaders will propose will make it illegal to have a semiautomatic rifle. That will make it a crime to possess one. End of problem. For those of you right wing fanatics that don't accept that logic, just look at drugs. They were made illegal several years ago. End of problem. What do you not understand?

Byron said...

Its people like 6:43 & 7:50 who keep us from being a civilized country. There is no left wing conspiracy to do anything. We're simply sick of the violence. My right to life trumps your right to bear arms. The Second Amendment doesn't keep you free, its just a worthless anachronism. If fact, its costs us ten thousand lives a year, according to the CDC in three years that number will be 30,000.

The solution to the problem is to disarm.

The solution to the problem is worthless fucks like you Byron get off welfare and get a job till then you have no rights to argue anything.

Since you can't block my IP, I will continue to speak, whether you think I have the right or not. (Of course, I do have the right - you're spouting nonsense.)

I am not the problem. I won't own a gun. You are the problem. You want to pretend that the Second Amendment protects you from fascism, when you are talking like a fascist.

Disarm!

So without armed guards in schools, since that idea seems soooooooo offensive, exactly what the fuck do the ultra left geniuses propose to protect children from mental wackos? Any of you do-gooders honestly believe that banning assault weapons (like you even know what an assault weapon is) from sales is going to stop a wacko job? I can't wait to hear another uninformed expert lay it all out on how we are going to achieve this Utopia by banning whatever is an assault weapon. You guys do understand that we loose more lives in car accidents in one year than in all of our shootings and wars combined? Lets outlaw mobile phones and alcohol while we are solving the worlds problems - how about it?

I clipped this from a blog called Warrior Times:

Here’s a history of what happens after governments have disarmed their citizens:
1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.
1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.
1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.
1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.
1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.
1964 – Guatamala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.
1970 – Uganda disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.
[Editor: You can argue about the numbers, but the point here is that disarmed citizens are vulnerable, and that there are many historical examples of disarmed citizens being killed and oppressed by their own government. The excuse given by authorities that they need to take guns away from citizens in order to lower crime rates is not supported by facts. Even if a government does not turn on its own citizens after disarming them, people are less safe - because unarmed citizens are easy targets to criminals. Over and over again, it has been clearly shown that taking guns away from citizens does not lead to a decrease in crime but rather a dramatic increase.]
Australia has disarmed it’s citizens, and a year later the homicide rate in the largest province is up 300%. The burglaries of seniors is “dramatically” up.
I guess the criminals did not turn their weapons in. Only the innocent law abiding citizens turned in weapons.
In US cities with the highest crime rates, taking guns away from the citizens has not lowered the homicide rate. All it has done is to make it easier for criminals to operate.
The 2nd amendment is not about duck hunting, or deer hunting. It is about having the ability and the right to defend oneself and your family. It doesn’t matter if that threat is a burglar, or the Federal Government. A disarmed population is fair game for any president who may be aspiring to become a dictator. Having its citizens armed was the plain and simple intent of the founding fathers of our country.

I was next to a Dallas resident on an airplane yesterday. He pointed out that the year prior to their concealed carry law being passed, a certain stretch of interstate in Dallas had a carjacking on every exit ramp at least once per week. After the law passed, a 'jacket was killed in the act. Immediately car jacking dropped to almost zero along that stretch of road.

People, for the first time in decades, are no longer scared to drive in Dallas. Mass murderers suck. So do street criminals. Who does more damage to society? Perhaps it's time to deal with the nut jobs that want to go down in flames. I think it is. But the way to deal with them is not to disarm the victims of street crime.

@ 10:18 & 10:24

Very good points and your both right in what you say.

Only issue is America home of the we want the quick fix but don't let it cost us people and then the wacko's such as Byron seem to think the new way is better when it's the new way of government operating thats got us in this huge ass pile of shit.

I agree with what someone else said people like Byron who suck off the government and the people have no rights. Get a job support America hell Walmart and McDonalds run ads seeking help all the time if you can run and see a computer you can be a WalMart greeter.

But sadly it appears these assholes are the ones who seem to dictate who makes it into office to protect their non working ass.

The NRA is full of nuts. The slaughter of innocent children leaves blood on their hands--no one fought the assault weapon ban more than the NRA. They've had their say for years--time to shut up.

You are all a bunch of hillbilly trash. Move to the south where your ignorance will not stand out as much. Btw, as a vet I will gladly side with the proud US Marines that will be enforcing any ban. Show up at your door step and take your gun? It would be my pleasure to join my brothers and protect this country from you trashy hicks.

Yes! Send in Marines to tame and civilize these honkey pieces of filth like we did back in the 1860s!!!!!!

Sick of hearing about this. Let's move on, please. Sorry, these kids died. The man with the gun killed these kids. It would be no different if the weapon of choice were a bomb, chemical warfare, etc. If people are hell-bent on killing; they will kill. Supporting mental health initiatives is good and tightening the standards for selling guns is also necessary. Taking them away... ? not so sure.

I saw a gun shop owner respond to the issue of demand at times like these, and he said something along the lines of, "the people who are buying weapons in response to these incidents are precisely the people who should not own guns". I thought that insightful.

The rest of you are drones to the NRA. And yes, I own three weapons, all of which have trigger locks.

Next time you see inside of a gun shop on a news show, take a good look of the sales people and buyers. We are not talkin' style show or Mensa folks in that crowd. You may note that most gun stores are co-located near bowling alleys........

Uh huh people who own guns (over 300 million of them) are police, feds, preachers, teachers, lawyers, judges, union workers, concerned citizens and a few shit kickers.

So far near every wack job who has engaged in these mass murders are college educated, upper middle class, upward mobile, preppies who actually bought into the ultra left wing bullshit before going bonkers. In fact, show me one Republican red neck hillbilly who ever engaged in mass murder?? Anyone wanna bite on that a while?

Gotta love the paranoid gun nuts. They are on their own driving gun and ammo prices through the roof and have done so since Obamas election, despite Obama having done and said next to nothing about guns. Smith and Wessons stock has gone up something like 430% since Obama took office. You think maybe they spread all the rumours that the gullible gun nuts eat up by the shovel full? One trait common to them all is massibve paranoia. Man, they believe everything.

Anonymous said...

The reason ammo is through the roof is because most of it is going to the middle east to fight a war. Since we now rely on China for ass wipe and bullets, among other things, there are very limited supplies of materials to produce. When war is on prices go up - just like fuel when the oil fields are on fire. This ain't rocket science.

Most of you that post have no clue what the real world problems are and have done little public service in your life time... Bad guys get guns all the time and if you think for a second a legislative measure will reduce the violence.... Well, that's like sayin' my plan will reduce the homicide rate...(no pun intended):-) :-)

Guns are not the problem... People are!

Anonymous said...

The sad thing is that no matter what the political view a person holds you will be working pretty hard to find a person that doesn't think violence is an issue in today's society. As long as lines are drawn the bad guys win. What we needis to end all this divisive bullshit and actually go after teh bad guys.
