Philly Mayor on NRA’s Idea of Putting Armed Guards in Schools: That’s a ‘Dumb@ss Idea’

The NRA’s solution to gun violence has been to add more guns to America’s schools. During a press conference, NRA head Wayne NutterLaPierre said that the only solution to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

However, gun control advocates have been quick to point out that there were guards at Columbine, and that Fort Hood was a base full of heavily armed service people.

Today on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter called LaPierre’s suggestion a “dumb@ss idea.”

Luke Russert, who was filling in for Andrea Mitchell, expressed concerns that putting off gun legislation could cause it to stall in Congress. “There is a worry amongst some folks that once time passes, once we get past the State of the Union, that this could fizzle out,” Russert said.

“Not going to happen,” Nutter quickly responded. “I think the public has been shocked and their conscious has been put on the carpet here with this one.”

Nutter also took on the logic that school shootings mean schools should have more armed guards, saying that by that logic, the incident where two firefighters were s**t means that first responders should arrive on the scene packing heat.

“I think it just shows that that was a completely dumb@ss idea from the start,” Nutter concluded.

What do you think? Is gun control on the way, or is America headed toward being the Wild Wild West?

    Its so funny the debate is on high powered, high ammunition clips rifles and guns. That’s the issue whether access should be limited to these types of guns, AK-47, hand guns with high round clips. They are trying to hijacking the conversation with talk of “taking your guns” when the talk is limited to military grade style guns and magazines. No other country even the ones with higher “guns” per capita have gun violence like the US. They regulate the types of guns for ordinary citizens.

    It is not dumb, that is how white people solve problems, they use voilence. Yhat is the only solution they know.Why do you think they full the world up with weapons of mass destruction?. Savagry is their way of solving problems. Blacks are right behing them. The only difference, when the blacks k**l each other they end up in jail, or get they get the d***h sentence. The whites just declare war on the poor people of the world and k**l them.Now we understand why white people do not support the International Courts of Justice. The do not want to have to face the justice of the rest of the world given their track record on crime against humanity..

    Another dumb a*s idea from the NRA. For those who need guns to protect them from a rouge government, I suggest you volunteer for duty in Afghanistan. If trained military ever came for you it is best you come out with a white flag as you are no match for their training or weapontry. To continue to put citizens in danger over some movie idea is insane. A gun group in Utah is conducting “8 hr. staff development” so their teachers can carry weapons in the classroom. I do not believe our elected officials will have the guts to stand up to the gun lobby. In a short while Sandy Hook will go the way of Columbine, Va. Tech, No. Illinois Univ, Ft Hood, Aurora, the mall in Oregon and all of the daily carnage from firearms. We are headed to a “wild, wild west society and the inmates are running the show”.
