Up in arms
How compassionate! How heart-warming! How public-spirited!
The NRA’s response to the unspeakable events in Connecticut: armed guards at every school.
Arming teachers is even being considered in some school districts.
Of course, a trigger-happy guard may mistake Johnny’s pulling a package of gum from his pant’s pocket while walking to class or Julie reaching inside her backpack as a provocation. Goodbye, Johnny. So long, Julie. But heck, don’t blame the guard! Nobody’s perfect. He was only doing his duty!
Have we really come to this? Armed guards and armed teachers in our schools?
God help America. Protect us from the NRA.
