While the President seeks tighter gun control restrictions in the wake of the murders in Newtown, Connecticut, the Washington D.C. school Sidwell Friends, has 11 security officers and is preparing to bring off duty policemen on board, Breitbart says.

School officials confirmed that the armed security is standard operating procedure for the toney private institution which for years has educated the children of some of Washington's most visible politicos including Chelsea Clinton, Albert Gore III, and, of course, Sasha and Malia Obama.
