In a statement released Friday afternoon, Bloomberg noted that Obama rightly sent his condolences to the families in Newtown, but urged the president to immediately introduce reforms that would create more restrictions around gun control. He is the co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a coalition of more than 600 mayors who support gun control initiatives, through which he issued the statement.
“The country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem," Bloomberg wrote. "Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response.”
What we need is armed security (preferably police) at each and every school. If that is not possible, then EVERY SCHOOL needs to have at least 1 staff member trained in the use of firearms and with immediate access to that firearm if or when necessary.
I can tell you this with 100% full confidence. As someone who is trained in the use of firearms and is licensed to carry myself, if I had been in that building at the time that evil bastard took his first shot, he would not have gotten off many more before I would have sent his sorry ass to hell.
