I'm not going to repeat the revolting details of a young man slaughtering a bunch of elementary school kids. You people have access to your news media of choice, and besides, it might make me throw up.
I realize that guns supposedly don't kill people, but a Bushmaster .223 semiautomatic assault rifle that can get some help from the trigger finger of a 20 year old with obvious sanity issues, combined with a high capacity magazine, can do a fair amount of damage, that's for sure. Actually, with the firepower mismatch between a Bushmaster and a handgun, hard to see that a couple of armed teachers would have made any difference.
Clearly, the more guns we get into the hands of Americans, the safer we will all be (not). Clearly, we have fixed the problem that was made glaringly obvious by the Aurora shooting (not). Clearly, the solution is to provide every school teacher, public or private, with a Glock and mandatory firing range lessons! And require her to carry it at all times (not).
oh wait. It's "too soon after" the massacre to bring public policy into the discussion, right? well, if you want us to wait a couple months after every high body count, it never is going to get talked about, because we are getting several of these per year.
But really, I am not suggesting anything in terms of public policy. I would rather wait for the NRA to come up with a suggestion. Only, I can guess what that suggestion will be-
"Be afraid, be very afraid, of crazies with guns. Buy a bigger gun than any of the crazies will have, and keep it by your side, day and night."
Sick and tired of being sick and tired, that's all.
