School Obama’s Daughters Attend Had 11 Armed Guards

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact.

The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.

If you dismiss this by saying, “Of course they have armed guards — they get Secret Service protection,” then you’ve missed the larger point.

The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC’s David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren’t used (and weren’t even allowed).

Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.

    1. It is funny how facts like this never gets put out by the media, but lies and fiction does. We don’t need to meet the gun grabber half way or any other way. No compromise, no backing down. We know what they are after, total gun confiscation. No one has guns but the criminals. That is what gun control means to them.

    2. So what if they have armed guards, the issue is the dangerous amounts of heavy hand weapons in circulation.

      Do you think your pathetic assault weapons will protect you against an oppressive state?

      You should arm yourself with civic rights, engage directly with the authorities and defend the least of us from a repacious government.

    3. It’s been my semi-scientific observation that the larger the gun, the smaller the wiener of its’ owner.

      Piers Morgan is right. There is absolutely no justification for assault rifles in the hands of civilians, most of whom turn out to be redneck, hillbilly yahoos (with little penises).

    4. Re Gerry:
      It’s been my semi-scientific observation that men who relate guns to penises are homosexual.
      Gun owners just basically want to be left alone so leave us alone!

    5. It seems to me there is every justification for Assault weapons in the hands of Civilians, it’s called keeping the Government in line.

      As far as I am concerned all weapons should be in the hands of the citizenry and only in the hands of the citizenry. The government should have to turn to it’s citizens for authorization of the use of force and in fact for the means of using that force.

      That is the only way to insure that very same government does not use that force against it’s own citizenry.

    6. The second ammendment is there to keep the government on it’s toes. Why mess with it? Do you really trust the government that let 9-11 happen?

    7. Piers Morgan is right?? Good grief. Wake up sheeple Communist China has a 200 MILLION MAN army. And we owe them a s%^t load of money due to our corrupt banking system and federal reserve. beholdapalehorse.tv

    8. Not surprising considering that the psychopaths in charge of this fascist dictatorship always value their little hell spawn over the children of everyone else. Let the so called elite have there heavily armed, high security, schools for their children. The path for the US citizen is to get their own children out of government run schools.

      The elite will always fortify themselves with the best that money can buy, but in their overwhelming desire for protection they will also isolate themselves. The ONLY remaining connection the elite have to the rest of humanity is through governments, so it is the government that must go in order to finally sever our ties with them.

    9. You ridiculously stupid motherfxxxxxx, it’s a private school which has as its student body the children — targets of opportunity — of leaders from around the world and this country.

      But you keep up with this “they’re coming to take our guns” bullshit, it’ll make you easier targets.

    10. They want to take our guns away but yet every war even world war 2 that my father was in our goverment sold guns and still sell guns to kill our SONS,DAUGHTERS and FATHERS.

    11. DICK ACT of 1902… CAN’T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN …
      The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It also divides the …www.knowthelies.com/?q=node/3949

    12. I was brought up with guns in Germany as an Army brat. Then over 20 years in the US Army. I am now working fur the US Government, the same one that just gave hundreds of assault rifles to the cartel Mexico which have been used to kill Americans. Why even consider gun control for US citizens when our own leaders freely give them away to our Mexican gangsters.

    13. People who hate guns are fxxxxx…period. Homosexual communists (yeah thats you sparky, gerry lincoln et al) that rail against guns on this site are sent here to do the bidding of the communists now gathering power in Washington. Why else would all these homo’s show up here? Go F yourselves butt busters.

    14. I LOVE MY AR AND IF U SCUM WANT SUM GET THE BIZ END THE END FCCK GUN CONTROL YOU LAZY TRASH GET UP STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS IF NOT HAHAHAHA…..

    15. I agree with Billy T. the American citizens need to get their children out of the government run schools. Shut them down and start over.

    16. At the top of this it says “no obscene language or threats will be tolerated ” ! lol, I think that there are no monitors.

    17. fellow responsible pro-gun people. this site is being trolled by fanatical anti-gun people. do not stoop to their level and respond to their ill informed rants with ones of your own, as it only fans the flames to their fire. let them believe what they want, we can not change that. only engage those who want to discuss rationally. the 2nd ammendmant will live on if we keep our heads.

    18. You Americans are worthless grubs! You are cowardly, stupid and knee-jerk vicious. The crimes against humanity your nation commits are unforgivable and the fact your own wretched state is in such poor position, facing economic collapse, slavery and fascism is pretty much what you deserve. So your masters treat you like shit? Eat it up and don’t complain. Even complaining takes more balls than the average American has.

    19. 1st of all rabbit…we do not have masters we have a president..and second of all opions are like buttholes…
      My opinion on the gun control..I think it is un called for and in humane of the president to try and take the rite to bare arms away, and then to add on top of that, his daughter’s scool is protected by armed guards, what the heck makes him think his Daughter is any better than our kids..had that school in colorado had armed guards,just 3 or 4 of the 11 thats being payed to protect his daughter, then maybe those innocent children would be with there families on this christmas day!!!…”STOP GUN HATE”

    20. First we must get the obvious out of the way: Obama and his ilk have no intention of living by the rules they impose on everyone else in the name of social justice. Period. Ever.

      Having said that, I wonder why we as responsible parents and adults tolerate the imposition by the government of conditions that render the campuses of each and every school veritable killing fields for those they will not safely remove from society because of some misbegotten sense of political correctness. They create the perfect scenario for evil to prevail.
      Why do we allow it? Why do we subject the most innocent and helpless among us to this? Why do we not require all mentally sound adults to openly carry a sidearm? In those nations and states and municipalities where gun ownership is mandatory violent crime of all kinds is so far below the statistical average of those localities that do not as to beggar belief.

      Criminals admit they choose gun free zones because they know no one will be able to defend themselves. Common sense has taken a long holiday and it is past the time when we demand its return. Why do we tolerate the fraudulent elections of progressive gun grabbers? Are we, the responsible ones, the ones who produce, provide, protect going to meekly allow this to continue?

      If we do allow it, then I would submit, that we, sadly, deserve the horrors that are sure to come as a result of our hapless and illogical stewardship.

    21. Re rabbit; JUST WHAT WORTHLESS SORRY ASS COWARDLY PIECE OF XXX STUPID COUNTRY DO LIVE IN. YOU PROBABLY LIVE IN ONE OF THOSE COUNTRIES THAT WE AMERICANS SEND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TOO. TO HELP FEED CLOTHE,AND BRING MEDICINE AND MEDICAL STAFF TO. NOT TO MENTION OUR ,WHAT WAS THAT [COWARDLY] MILITARY . IS THAT WHAT YOU CALL [CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY THAT ARE UNFORGIVABLE] YOU STUPID FU–ING POS. THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WERE FACING ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. YOUR PROBABLY FROM FRANCE, YOU SOUND LIKE ONE OF THOSE BALLESS,COWARDLY FRENCH QUEERS JUDGING FROM THAT STUPID FU–ING COMMENT YOU POSTED. I CAN’T FIGURE OUT HOW IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA’S DAUGHTER ATTENDING AN ARMED SCHOOL. HMMM FRANCE IS’NT THAT ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE COWARDLY COUNTRIES WE SAVED DURING WORLD WAR 2. ITS WAS WITH OUR PROUD TOUGH SERIOUSLY BALLSY AMERICAN MILITARY MEN THAT KEPT THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF FRANCE FROM SPEAKING GERMAN. I’M WILLING TO MAKE A LARGE WAGER THAT IF YOUR POS COUNTRY WAS BEING INVADED BY ANY, MIND YOU ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, AND THEY STARTED SLAUGHTERING AND RAPING YOUR GAY BUDDIES, WOMAN CHILDREN AND GRANDMOTHERS ALIKE. YOUR COUNTRY WOULD BE BEGGING THE GOOD OLE US OF A TO COME TO THERE RESCUE, WHICH WE WOULD. SO SHUT THE FU– UP YOU LITTLE SCUMXXX XXXX XXXX……

    22. Join the NRA. Help support you 2nd amendment rights. While were at it I think we also should ban cars and eating utensils. Cars are involved in accidents and by banning forks, knives and spoons that would slow us down and keep us from getting fat.Car accidents and obesity causes more deaths than gun crimes. http://home.nra.org/#

    23. These guys aren’t the problem – they’re presumably well-trained, qualified, and responsible enough to carry a gun. The problem is that pretty much any goober can walk into a store and have a gun in his hands in short order. So, the NRA has proposed arming guards at schools, and I haven’t heard many object to that – but why don’t they propose an answer for the real problem? President Obama knows this is a very complex issue, but has actually taken a very balanced approach, knowing that everything that even “might” prevent another Newton tragedy must be done – but to know that, you have to listen to him, not “Ammoland.com”

    24. A thought I’d like to share…
      I saw it in a recent headline note, so I’m not taking credit for it..however…

      If gun control and new gun bans are what the president wants enacted, let’s start by putting a ‘gun free zone’ around the president, and fire the secret service! Wouldn’t need them then.

      That would work, wouldn’t it?

      Anyone that tries to take away my HUMAN RIGHT to protect me and my family’s life , will have to do it with more lethalness than I will be doing to protect myself. You will be shot, stabbed, have your head turned-around backwards…whatever I choose. The one thing I will NOT do is sit down and let it happen, and say “thanks for keeping me safer”.

      I do NOT advocate violence, and i truly wish It did not have to be this way..but I will cut you into little pieces with an exacto knife if I have to protect me and my family’s lives.
      If YOU wouldn’t do that, maybe you should just shoot or kill your family yourself. You would be doing so anyway, so get to it.
      Saying “ok, guns are now banned/illegal” will NOT get rid of all the guns. Therefore, I will protect myself and family from it..AT ANY COST.

      If you don’t like that, all I can say is stay the hell away from me and my family. You’d be better off. Period!

      ~Blessed Be to all~

    25. not sure I see what your getting at the pres. has hundreds of guards around him too …so… I don’t want guards everywhere i go pal think of it this way …if you want 1984 to be real why don’t you do it in north Korea…they have armed guards at every place of shopping and school too… is that what you want..I love how you tea morons think …this is the society you fear …thus all the guns ….and yet north korea is what you will bring us too……those with guns make the rules isn’t that what the NRA says thats why you need to have them …you think the state you fear is really afraid of you ..so what…. you are armed but your also easily manipulated …And that is why the government doesn’t fear you gun toting asses but does fear me..a thinking man who thinks things would be better without guns but with smarter citizens..Most NRA members will never get this

    26. Well, nice try, but Obama hasn’t said a single word about his position towards armed guards in schools. And for many reasons he’d be unlikely to speak against them.

      In fact he’s not said much at all so far other than to ask for “reports” on what MIGHT be able to be done, etc.

      Some folks just can’t get past the drivel that the NRA has been feeding them about what a horrible gun-grabber Obama is. In fact the only thing he’s done at all that in any way relates to “gun control” in the US in 4 years has been to ALLOW concealed carry in national parks.

      So again, fail.

      Try again when he really DOES say something you can use. He probably will come out in favor of some level of gun control eventually.

    27. Give all of our Vets an opportunity to continue to serve and protect and let them stand guard outside of ALL schools. They were good enough at the time to fight in many wars let their work continue NOW I am certain that they would love to protect our future !!!!

    28. And this is being brought to everyone’s attention now? I don’t know about you, but this has been standard policy for every presidential child – they go to private schools that have security – that isn’t new news. You are going to make light of this because of what happened in NH? Maybe you should have brought light of this when Columbine happened, or even the shootings at VT. Before going out and making a big deal about where Obama’s children go to school, do a little research. You will find that Clinton’s daughter went to this school, and more than likely all of the CIA, FBI, and other government employed children also go to this school. @ Liz – it would be great to have our vets doing something, but you have to understand something, until a majority of our vets are properly diagnosed and treated for PTSD, I wouldn’t want them guarding a school. After 2 tours in Afgan, I was finally diagnosed and treated, and the sad thing about it, I will never be able to pass my psych for law enforcement – even though I have been treated and released, the fact that I was diagnosed prevents me from ever being a cop. So I will continue carrying my sidearm wherever I may go. The jr high and high schools in my county have armed officers at each school, and I can’t begin to count the number of schools we have in this county, but it covered 4-5 districts. There is no officers in our elementary schools…yet. If they would allow teachers to carry, maybe we can avoid future instances, but it is federal property and it is posted at each school that it is unlawful to have a firearm on school property. Obama needs to change that! Allow those that LEGALLY carry, do such, I don’t care if it is my kids’ school, I’d feel a hell of a lot better knowing that I have x amount of teachers that know how to shoot, to protect not only my kids, but others as well.

    29. I feel that arming teachers is a cop out. first it is to assume a teacher is willing and able to accept the responsibility, and pass the training. second, I feel most medium to large towns can re-deploy their law enforcement assets to put one or two officers per school, with a car on site should an emergency arise elsewhere…..for smaller towns,/school districts, funds just might have to be allocated.
      Taking all that above it no account, it deeply offends me to the core that any slime bag would begin to gripe about the expense….Oh we will help the addicted, we will fund the foreign refuges of many a nation, we will wage wars to vast expense, but we wont fund our children s safety?…seriously?,,,,we sit back and make snide remarks like whats next guards in the shopping malls, (some already have those)….but with the constant news of either inappropriate actions buy teachers and students alike in our school coupled with the fact that the dregs of society have no focus on school as “easy targets” I think we are past the Utopian stage of denial. We currently have laws in effect that Should have prevented each of the last three major gun violence incidents in the national news…..those laws were NEVER properly implemented, nor enforced, with an excuse…WE don’t have the money. Now someone tell me…how do we come up with funds to enforce a yet non-existent law…when we can not fund what is in place?!?!…this is beyond apathetic….and is little more than a politicians attempt to make everyone feel falsely safe…..the law they are talking about would not be a new law, it’s “Jim brady’s law” re-introduced after it was in effect for over 15 years and didn’t work….yet the american public seems ready to gobble up this utter hogwash, of a recycled failure.
      Legislature is not the answer….enforcement and incarceration for ALL offenders is…until that happens…anything else is just spitting into a 35 MPH wind. And that may not be popular, or that you want to hear, but it’s FAIR, it’s FAIR and it’s honest.
      Thank you for considering my suggestion(s)

    30. lOlwhaaat?

      “The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers… If you dismiss this by saying, “Of course they have armed guards — they get Secret Service protection,” then you’ve missed the larger point. The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period.”

      Except the school specializes in teaching & protecting the kids of politicians & dignitaries so it is YOU who is missing the larger point & spreading misleading info to further your gun propaganda.
