Flashback: Pres. Clinton asks for $60 to fund armed police in schools

In their zeal to push "gun control", the media has apparently forgotten that back in 2000, on the one-year anniversary of the Columbine shooting (which occurred with an assault weapons ban in place), President Clinton requested an additional $60 million in federal money to fund a fifth round of funding for a program called "COPS in School," a program that does exactly what the NRA is proposing and the media is currently in overdrive mocking:

The Clinton Justice Department program paid for police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money wasused to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities ON TOP OF the 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation Clinton had already funded.
