Hypocrisy of gun-control advocates

By From page A7 | January 08, 2013

I’m writing in response to Stephen Davis’s twisted view (“The NRA’s twisted logic on schools,” Dec. 31, 2012). I will put it in terms he might understand.

Having children in an unguarded school is like the lobster tank at a restaurant. No one is there to protect the lobster. What he doesn’t understand is that any armed guards would have to have training. Teachers and administrators that feel the calling should also be allowed to carry after proper training.

On Dec. 23, 2012, David Gregory of “Meet The Press” ridiculed the National Rifle Association for wanting guards in schools. It’s funny because his three children attend Sidwell Friends School. It has 11 armed guards and are looking for another. Then there are the Secret Service agents that go there with the Obama girls.

If having armed guards for our children is dangerous, then someone call CPS on the Obamas and the Gregorys for putting their children in danger.
