Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association's self-caricature, today came out with his solution to the problem of school firearms violence. One thing he called for was the presence of armed guards in the schools. He thinks there's too much violence in the media. Like that. Nothing whatever the slightest bit unpredictable or helpful. He also spoke of handling the mentally ill better, a cause for which Republicans have been notably unwilling to appropriate funds for, siting the adequacy of private sector responses to the problem and the dangers of Stalinist tyranny destroying America as we know it.
Now, I went to school, and recall my teachers. They ranged from the saintly to the ridiculous, on both superficial and deep levels, as yours did too. One of my favorites was later found to have liked middle school boys rather better than he should have. Another, whose bitter right wing diatribes introduced his every class, became a friend, and gave me a life long love of poetry at a time when I wasn't reading anything other than pulp science fiction.
The vision of each and every one of these carrying a firearm to school does not suggest to me a solution to any problem at all...
