Right from the start I wondered why the Obama Administration wouldn’t want to put cops in every school in America—other than the fact the idea was proposed by NRA Veep Wayne LaPierre after the Sandy Hook slaughter. More money for the unions. Bigger government. It all makes sense. And now The Washington Post reports that Vice President Biden’s civilian disarmament commission is receptive to the idea. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.)—she of the “let’s put the National Guard in schools” proposal— said the Veep “appeared receptive” to the cop-in-every-school proposal. “If a school district wants to have a community policing presence, I think it’s important that they have it,” Boxer told the Post. “If they want uniformed officers, they can do it. If they want plainclothed officers, they can do it.” Is this Boxer jockeying for limelight or part of an assault weapons ban climbdown? Watch this space.
