To naysayers who say armed guards in schools won't work:
Why do they have so many armed guards around the White House, all of the government buildings, all of the airports and marshals on airplanes?
Let's take enough foreign aid back from countries that hate us to pay armed guards in our schools.
Making new useless gun controls is a waste of time, and they won't work. They are just feel-good measures.
People won't give up semi-automatics or 30-round clips.
The Second Amendment was written to protect the people from a government gone wild, and for personal protection - not just for hunting.
Joe Manchin should know this.
Naysayers will ask what you can do with just a rifle. Ask the patriots of the Revolutionary War. Ask the Viet Cong. Ask the rebels in Syria.
The Founding Fathers knew we needed rifles equal to the foe. Today that means we need semi-automatics with the 30-round clips.
A government gone wild probably could not happen with our form of government today.
With people like President Obama chipping away at the Bill of Rights, and others in the future doing the same, who is to say?
If they make us register our guns, it would be easy for them to come to our homes and take them away.
