Shock: Denver Schools To Patrol Students With Military-Style Rifles: “Certainly Ratchets Up A Notch”

Do you LOVE America?



    Are children safe in public schools?

    If the answer seems pretty obvious, it is confirmation that society has definitely gone to extremes that would not have been recognizable in past decades of American history.

    Now Denver-area schools are becoming the first to guard their student populations with military-style semiautomatic rifles, and things certainly appear to be escalating.

    via NBC News/AP:

    A suburban Denver school district is arming its security staff with military-style semiautomatic rifles in case of a school shooting or other violent attack, a move that appears unprecedented even as more schools arm employees in response to mass violence elsewhere.

    The guards, who are not law enforcement officers, already carry handguns.


    The move raised new questions about how far school officials should go in arming employees, a practice that has become standard in the aftermath of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.

    One can only hope that these weapons would stop a shooter before they could hurt anyone, but there isn’t any guarantee.

    Active shooters, mass killings and militarized police and security now haunt the halls where education and learning is supposed to be taking place. More children than ever before are on pharmaceutical medications, despite the known links to suicide and homicide. Between Common Core and politically-correct policies, these institutions are teaching that up-is-down, and down-is-up like never before.

    One school in Florida even punished a 16-year old student for wrestling a gunman threatening other students to the ground and preventing a shooting. Active shooter and martial law drills have become commonplace, and many of them have been unannounced, causing terror and panic in students and teachers.

    While most schools remain “gun-free zones” and have been reluctant to allow teachers to be armed in the case of the worst incidents, many have readily invested in armed security, surveillance technology and counter-terrorism approaches to “safety” in schools.

    The result has been a heightened atmosphere that is increasingly paranoid, and ready to treat anyone and everyone as potential suspects – including children:

    Ken Trump, a school safety consultant in Cleveland, said the Douglas County case may mark the first time a district has equipped its in-house security officers with semiautomatic rifles.

    “Taking this step certainly ratchets up a notch the whole idea, the question of what’s reasonable, what’s necessary in terms of arming officers,” Trump said.

    But are they being protected from potential violence, or indoctrinated in a police state society where even children are under sharp suspicion, and misbehavior is criminalized? Can we see down the road as to whether this is likely to tend towards more freedom, or less? More armed citizens is positive, but more guns only in the hands of police, but private and public, may prove not be.

    Regardless, it is a precedent for the growing police state society that expects individuals to conform to the masses, and obey authorities at all costs. Michael Snyder argued that public schools are purposely preparing students to live in such a society:

    Our children are the future of America, and our public schools are systematically training them to become accustomed to living in a “Big Brother” police state. All across the United States today, public schools have essentially become “prison grids” that are run by control freaks that are absolutely obsessed with micromanaging the lives of their students down to the smallest detail. As you will read about below, students all over the country are now being monitored by RFID microchips, their lunches are being inspected on a daily basis by school administrators, and the social media accounts of students are being constantly monitored even when they are at home.

    […] One thing that was unheard of back when I was in high school was “active shooter drills”. They are being held in school districts all over the nation today, and they often involve the firing of blanks and the use of fake blood.

    In typical fashion, Snyder goes on to make a long list of bizarre school practices that will make your head spin, and are, frankly, teaching the future members of society how to become helpless slaves.

    Everyone can see that there is a problem, but nobody seems to know the way to fix it.

    There is a fine line somewhere in there…

      1. First off, no one is safe anymore.
        Watch all in 360* for your own good.

        Scary world out there.

        Be well all…

        • I would be a lot more scared of sending my kids to publik skool!

          • G, the nearly 10 years of home schooling, was one of the best decisions we ever made.
            One can see the difference easily…

            Wish we had that back in the 60’s & 70’s…

            • I don’t know how much of this is hype and how much is true, but I wouldn’t get to alarmed by what the media puts out. I did see on the local news last night where some schools in Colorado was training and allow some teachers to carry a concealed handgun at school. Which is a very good plan in case of an attack by a shooter. As far as carrying military style rifle, (what ever that might be), sounds like a scare tactic put out by the media to stir opposition. And it sounds like it worked, even right here on SHTF. Trekker Out.

          • Genius, better yet, who would even want to have children in this sick country? I don’t have any nor would I want any.

        • ….”DENVER (AP) — A suburban Denver school district is arming its security staff with military-style semiautomatic rifles in case of a school shooting or other violent attack, a move that appears unprecedented even as more schools arm employees in response to mass violence elsewhere.

          The Douglas County School District guards are>>former<< law enforcement officers and already carry handguns.

          District security director Richard Payne said he decided to spend more than $12,000 on the Bushmaster brand rifles for the district's eight armed officers to give them the same tools as law enforcement, including the sheriff's deputies they train with. Payne said the rifles will be kept locked in patrol cars, not in the schools."…..

          Story not that sensational……yawn….mffft.

          ht tp://

          Be safe…..BA.

          • If you look this school district up, it has 74 high, middle and elementary schools, plus continuation schools and administrative and supporting offices. By all accounts, this is a pretty big school district. I would say that adding 6 long rifles to guard this many schools is extremely inadequate.

            They need more……

      2. I simply cannot wait until those high speed little pills start ricocheting off walls and floors and penetrate classroom door windows. Retired cops, eh? Most cops know little or nothing about AR’s, and do know how to use a pump shotgun. Loaded with #4 buckshot, the same load used by the FBI, it’s lethality and lack of over-penetration makes it the most useful tool. This must be a real hell-hole of a school to actually need guards carrying AR’s. I am glad I am not of an age to have kids, or to have to send them to a public school any where.

        • Typical of Denver. Everyone there in GOV has their little fiefdom and want more power.
          I completely agree about the AR-s. They are gonna kill some kid. Shotguns are a much better option.

      3. I say good for them.
        After all, we guard our money, our celebrities, and our “leaders” with guns, why not our kids?
        By the way, can we please lose the “military-style rifles” BS? Its a rifle. Get over it.

      4. Pull your kid out of school. As Nancy said, “just say NO”. Remember the law of implied consent. If you don’t say NO your consent is implied. A very wise lady told me not to punish my children for saying NO to one of my parental orders. It makes kids think they have no right to refuse.

        Many of us were brought up by people who drummed it out of us. The kids in school today are being programmed to be slaves.

        They won’t have the ability to help you when you need them. They will settle for whatever comes along. Damn it. Get married before you have a kid. And somebody stay home and raise Em.

      5. When the “Authorities” use these weapons they are called SEMI automatic. When patriots use them in defense of the Constitution they are called ASSUALT RIFLE’S

        Black Guns are BAD!

        Double standard for the news media.

        I am so sick of it.

        • Excellent observation. It’s all sculpted to fit their narrative.

        • Anon I thought the same thing when I was reading!

          • If police buy ammo it is for inventory, if we the public buy ammo it is stockpiling!

      6. Shock: Denver Schools To Patrol Students With Military-Style Rifles: “Certainly Ratchets Up A Notch”

        Fk’n Dumb … Welcome to “stasi style” American Edu-programming.

        “Are children safe in public schools?”

        Kind of a rhetorical question … ain’t it?
        With Government “common core” ethics being instituted into the system … the answer is clearly a big Fk’n NO!

        “Everyone can see that there is a problem, but nobody seems to know the way to fix it.”

        No shit there is a problem! … it’s called a Government/Authoritative Upper Management Issue.
        There is a way to fix it … put the guns on the Government/Authoritative Upper Management fk’n douche bags!!!

        “There is a fine line somewhere in there…”

        Umm … really? … sure about that? … I don’t see no “fine” line here. What I can clearly see some fk’n douche bags overstepping some serious boundary’s.

        • I wouldn’t even have kids in a public school. In some ways it’s better that I didn’t have kids.

          • I had 6 in public schools, seems they all did alright, ain’t none of them Liberals and none came home packing black babies. Just have to do proper instruction at home, so they won’t be lead astray. Public indoctrination does seem to get worse every year. Trekker Out.

      7. The elite know they could always lose a revolution and they can avoid that risk by focusing on the young. Us older folk will all die within fifty years or so and freedom dies with us, after which those alive will only know the menace of the police state.

        It will take longer to get their totalitarian state that way but it is almost guaranteed whereas winning a civil war never is.

      8. MMN

        Can’t wait till school children turn their parents in to authorities for some infraction of the New Rules for Change In America.

      9. Oh this is gonna be good, turning super grade school hallway cop loose with a thirty rounder and a rock-n-roll switch.

        • PoP

          Nothing to worry about until the mount 50 cal. machines guns to Segways.

          Going Mobile.


        • I suppose this is the “New & Improved Hall Monitor” for this day and age. Wait until these kids start picking on this Rent-A-Cop for failing the Grade of becomming the real deal.

          I can see the Headlines now …

          Loser Rent-A-Cop goes on shooting rampage on school grounds – couldn’t handle the pressures of being teased and bullied from children!

      10. Military style firearms?????
        All guns use today from bolt actions, Break Action, Lever Action, Semi Auto, to full autos were at one time designed for the military.

        A firearm is nothing but a tool. Why use a hand saw when you can use a power saw. Just that simple.

        Second question why do they have to carry heavy weapons like this in these schools? Are they that violent.


      11. This would upset me more then chalk

      12. If you leave your kids in this camp you deserve to have them shot by these fucks.

      13. They should have at least what the bad guys show up with. A pistol can only do so much against an AR in the hands of a bad guy. Better they have it and may not need it or have to answer to everybody after the next Newtown. As long as there is proper training and range time before they are issued such weapons so be it. Pull your kid out? Could happen in a private school or at home too.

      14. The bad guys/whoever will be looking for soft targets and knowing their are well armed security at these schools,chances are the bad guys will avoid it as cowards will.

      15. Ar is unwieldy compared to glock or other auto pistol. Can’t see a reason to have battle rifles in the school. It’s extreme.

      16. Don’t be surprised. We have kicked God to the curb and now he has allowed our cities to be turned into hell.

        Why be concerned. Simply reaping what has been sown.

        No chance of me stepping a foot inside the USA until the people deal with the police and its leaders who pulled off 9/11 and are laughting in peoples faces.

      23. american citizens are the victims of all the filthy, trash, and savages your govt has allowed in this country, and it will be the american citizens that have to put a stop to it or look like germany, france and sweden. try the traitors for treason

      24. They’re not going to be carrying the weapons, they’re going to have them readily available.

        I know all you anti gun libs are going to go crazy about this and would rather see lots of kids killed than the school security force having guns to stop it from happening.
