Christie: NRA Ad on Obama Daughters ‘Reprehensible’

I'll tell you what is reprehensible: Sending children into make-believe gun-free zones and pretending they are safe, claiming that a good guy with a gun in a school wouldn't do anything to make the kids safer. They say guns don't make people safer and then surround themselves with people with guns - and take your right to protect yourself away from you. If guns don't make you safer, then why do they surround themselves and their families with people with guns? I don't see police walking around unarmed either. Why? Wouldn't be safe?

What is also reprehensible is the "my way or the highway" approach that is being taken by this administration and New York officials, and surrounding yourself with 8-year-olds and reading the letters their teacher made them write and acting as if they had more sense than an 8-year-old. An 8-year-old doesn't understand all the intricacies that surround this issue and, apparently, neither do progressives. Or do they know all to well? Is that why they want our guns?

Another thing that is reprehensible is demonizing good, decent, law-abiding, patriotic Americans for doing nothing more than owning a gun. Absolutely reprehensible. Guns are not evil and they do not make a person evil. Period.

Gun-free zones belong in the same category as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. The only people they disarm are law-abiding citizens. No one is asking for secret service to protect our schools, just some common sense. If a teacher or principal (any school worker) is comfortable with guns, has a concealed carry permit and perhaps takes an additional safety course for school carry, then they should be allowed to carry their gun - concealed,and on their person at all times - to school. No student need ever know. And this is completely different than arming teachers. We don't need to arm teachers. Most teachers are not interested and it wouldn't work.

There are many other reasonable steps schools can take to protect the children and having a security guard or two should be considered. They don't even have to be uniformed, probably shouldn't be, just a nicely dressed person with a concealed weapon.

Also, schools spend a lot of money on fire alarms and fire suppression systems. And they have regular fire drills. When was the last time you heard of a fire at a school? Yet we don't question the need for these things. Firearms are the same. They are like a fire extinguisher: Most people pass by them everyday and never need one, wouldn't even know how to use it really. But thank God they are there and that, in an emergency someone who does know how to use it has one available.

This just in: This is absolutely reprehensible: White House Uses Children Again to Make Anti-Gun Argument: ‘The Only Thing They Do Is Harm or Kill’

Brilliant! Hey, let's let 8 and 10-year-old kids run for president and congress. They are so much smarter than adults. Who knew the solution to violence was so easy: No guns! Remember how peaceful the world was before guns?

They really believe we are idiots, don't they?
