In the wake of the tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school where a lone gunman took the lives of 27 people, mostly kids, President Obama made an emotional speech during a memorial ceremony there for the victims and declaired emphatically "that we can't tolerate this anymore", yet rejects as many Americans do an idea put forth by the head of the NRA Wayne LaPierre to have armed guards at all schools.
Funny though, the president thinks it's a bad idea and "dangerous", yet the school his daughters attend has armed guards. Eleven of them to be exact. So what makes the president's daughters any more important than your neighbors school age kids? Or your siblings children, or, your Own children?
Awr hawkins on breitbart.com succinctly wrote "If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point.
The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC's David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren't used (and weren't even allowed).
Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed."
