Lombardi: Guard Our Schools With Armed Guards Defies Logic We Send Over $100 Billion To Ukraine In Arms But Can’t Have Armed Security
Manhattan, IL/March 27, 2023 – Illinois tech entrepreneur and former Republican Congressional candidate Jack Lombardi called for armed guards at all schools throughout the United States. He said armed guards on school premises can’t stop horrendous and tragic school shootings as we saw in
Nashville. It is inexcusable and criminal, he said that we can spend over $100 billion in arming Ukraine but can’t not provide adequate security for our own schools.
“As a father, my heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones in Nashville today,” said Jack Lombardi. “We must ensure that events such as this which have become far too common do not happen again.
“The way to do this is secure our schools with armed guards who can take preventive actions to stop tragedies like today from occurring,” continued Lombardi. “Federal and state buildings are fortified and get armed security, so why not our children?
“Rather than spend another $100 billion in arming Ukraine, why not fortify our schools and protect our children,” concluded Lombardi. “Protecting our children and preventing school shootings is a far greater national interest than the Ukrainian border.”
Lombardi’s story is that of an ordinary Chicagoan with exceptional zeal who broke the norm, building a better life with the resources he had at hand. Today, he is a successful businessman with vast experience in leading diverse teams to a common goal of success.
A natural entrepreneur, Lombardi earned his first money at age 8 selling soda on a neighborhood street corner. He started his first business, Lombardi Trucking, by age 22 and has never looked back. Currently, Lombardi owns Chicago’s premiere digital marketing company and runs multiple internet companies.
Born and bred on Chicago’s southwest side, Lombardi went to nearby St. Laurence High School and later attended Northwestern Business College. He is proud to be the husband of Sharon Lombardi and father of his son Jack III and daughter, Summer.
