New Jersey town to have armed security in schools

Via JWF. Here is my prediction, many schools will follow the NRA’s advice, and will have armed security, and no armed guard, or teacher will go nuts and slaughter any students, and even then, the Left will still hate guns. 

What kind of crazy, gun-nut red-state lunatics are these putting guns in schools? Oh wait, it’s New Jersey.

Don’t mess with Marlboro Township.

The leafy, well-heeled New Jersey suburb will station a permanent armed cop in each of its nine schools starting Jan. 2.

It’s apparently the first district nationwide bent on packing heat in every schoolhouse since madman Adam Lanza gunned down 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14.

“We’ve made a collective decision as a town that we need armed security in each of our schools,” Mayor Jonathan Hornik told The Post.

“With this new evil, you can’t just sit there and hope that it doesn’t happen in your town. We must protect our kids.”

The mayor and other town officials had approved the initiative before the chief of the National Rifle Association ignited a firestorm on Friday by calling for armed guards for schools.

Besides putting a cop in each of its schools — one kindergarten, five elementary, two middle and one high school — Marlboro will consider fortifying entrances with steel doors and bulletproof glass and installing surveillance cameras “all over” to feed to the police department, Hornik said.

Cost won’t stand in the way of “state-of-the-art” safety, he added.

“This isn’t a luxury item. This is a necessity, based on what we saw happen in Connecticut,” said Hornika Democrat who supports an assault-weapons ban and stricter gun control.

Amen, tour government mandates our kids attend school, and it is their duty to do their best to protect those kids. As that mayor said, this is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Now, will having armed security be an absolute guarantee against a psycho bringing a weapon and trying to harm the kids? No, nothing is 100% guaranteed, but this is the single best deterrent there is.

  1. What next? The malls? A policeman on every street corner? And what will this cost? And is this an expression of the right-wings smaller government? All to avoid a limitation on the number of rounds a magazine can contain?

    1. Cost? A Lib bitching about cost? WOOW! And small government? There are some things the government has a DUTY to do, protecting its citizens is one, especially since the govt. mandates kids attend school. And I want this done because I believe it is the best way to prevent future shootings.
