New Jersey Town Takes Quick Action On NRA’s Advice

While the morons in the press attack the NRA for their common sense proposal, at least one community is using their brain and taking the NRA’s advice.

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.”

    An community using “Common Sense” how refreshing. I would hope that other community and school districts wake up and protect those who need it most. Unfortunately most school districts look the the most corrupt place in America for their marching orders, Washington DC.

    A city that has elected officials with brains that actually work logically. Amazing!

    Yep. Time to remove the target painted on the innocents in these ‘Gun-Free Zones.’

    Imagine an expansion of that mindset being pervasive in our government a few decades ago. Would our nuclear deterrent have been dismantled/banned, despite knowing others around the world had them? Or were working on getting them? And if so, what would the world look like today?

    Private enterprises and often gov’t departments put (in many cases) armed security guards in place to protect empty offices at night. But no, protecting hundreds of our most vulnerable children isn’t an appropriate thing to do. The sheer stupidity is overwhelming.

    Here’s another town doing the same:

    I disagree in part. One armed guard isn’t a whole lot of deterrent. I believe there should be additional school officials carrying as well, like teachers, administrators, janitors. etc.. Anyone that is proven to be trustworthy and capable should be packing, IMHO…

    Almost every school has som ex-military, either in administration, or in the class room. Far cheaper and more effictive to allow them to cary. Keep the damm federal govt out of it.

    Why is this even contoversial? One of the High Schools that I attended had a group of off-duty police as security guards. They walked around with holstered pistols on their hip. Of course, this was an inner-city type of H.S. so it was considered dangerous. This was well before the current school shooting phenomenon.
