Thank you, Dawn M. Kurry, for the interesting article in the Richmond County Daily Journal Weekender Dec. 22-23, 2012 under the headline — “NRA says arm teachers to protect students.”
In my opinion, two items stood out. First, a more appropriate headline would read, “Unarmed teachers killed trying to protect students.”
The second was the irrational rant provided by billionaire New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, lambasting the NRA proposal to use trained, armed, security to protect students and teachers wherever local school districts thought appropriate. Had the Mayor not been surrounded by his staff of fully armed and trained personal bodyguards, in addition to a wall of police protection from New York’s Finest, his remarks might seem to come from a position of thoughtful wisdom and less from political correctness.
