"It was absolutely outrageous,' said Shannon Watts, who founded One Million Moms for Gun Control just five days ago. "They are about to see a tsunami of 84 million angry moms coming out at them. Angry moms like they have never seen before. We are going to do for gun control what Mothers Against Drunk Driving did for drunk drivers...
...We understand about the Second Amendment, but it was written in 1791, before AK47s." America needs common sense, she said.
In response, George Washington commented from the afterlife:
Shannon Watts is a nincompoop, who must ignore the hundreds of millions of innocent civilians killed by their own governments in the 20th century alone in her inane quest to trade liberty for security, which will secure neither.
Actually, I made that last sentence up. The rest was all George.
Now, among the multitude of reasons that Shannon Watts is a nincompoop, is the fact that Bill Clinton actually implemented armed cops at at schools in 2000.
Only Barack Obama cut the funding for it. Oops.
The NRA came out with a proposal to post armed police officers at schools to prevent or at least minimize the next school shooting. The left promptly called the idea nuts.
So, if you’re keeping score, the NRA agrees with a 12-year old Bill Clinton position on school security. The left just called a former Democrat president “crazy.”
...The NRA today proposed protecting our children to a level similar to the way we protect our banks and many public buildings: With armed security. As we’ve established, this idea has been around for more than 12 years and was once proposed by a Democratic president. Many on the anti-gun left responded to today’s proposal not with a thoughtful rejoinder, but with calls to shoot Wayne LaPierre.
For students of history, I wonder whose counsel is more valuable: Shannon Watts -- or America's founders?
