Good points you've been making here! I will even grant the folks on the other side of this issue that it's not really fair to include the Schools the actual top leaders send their kids to. The President, Speaker, Senate Majority Leader and a handful of others are in the National Command Authority chain and actually could have international attention aimed at their kids...so in those cases, I almost say they ought to have private tutors for the safety of the kids they attend with, but at least they have security at that top level.
They rest though?? You're absolutely right. Just what enormous threat are a freshman congressman's kid's under or a Governor or State House Rep? They have issues...but as you've noted, don't we ALL have issues and that is the whole point.
They shouldn't have the luxury of no concerns to their kid's school being a target (or at least a successful one) while the best we get are idiot school districts in California packing M-16 rifles on the surplus program or whatever deal they have with Colt there to get those rifles at a mere $1,000 a copy. If THEY need security well then our kids are no less special and unique than theirs and I resent how their attitude actually DOES imply the opposite when you think about it, huh?
