After some angry nut grabs one of America’s 200 million guns and blasts a couple dozen children, it’s probably time we did something. Let’s ask a family-oriented to-the-baby-Jesus praying country firster. You sir! Now that some percentage of our six year-olds are dead, what should we do?
Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America . . tossed out this old bullshit today:
“Gun control supporters have the blood of little children on their hands. Federal and state laws combined to insure that no teacher, no administrator, no adult had a gun at the Newtown school where the children were murdered. This tragedy underscores the urgency of getting rid of gun bans in school zones. The only thing accomplished by gun free zones is to insure that mass murderers can slay more before they are finally confronted by someone with a gun.”
We should get some guns.
Steve Dulan, a board member for the Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners . . said Friday that having armed teachers inside Sandy Hook Elementary School would have, “if not prevented, then perhaps minimized,” the tragedy.
“We do know that armed citizens defend themselves all the time, in all kinds of different contexts,” Dulan told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski.
That’s right, teachers need a lot more guns. The principals too and the classroom aides and the janitors don’t forget the nurse and maybe the fat guy with the yellow vest in the parking lot who can’t even spit sunflower seeds at his feet without pelting the kids. We also need thirty-round magazines, lots of tiny earplugs and would it really kill you to go to the military supply warehouse and scare up a Kevlar vest?
Of course not. But you ask: How many more guns do we need? When will we have enough? Isn’t a couple hundred million plenty? Well, when you compare America to the rest of the world . .
. . you see we’re nowhere near having twice as many as whatever pussy nation is behind us (everybody). So there’s room for improvement. And ammunition.
