Well, the NRA has finally crawled out from under their rock following the latest mass murder. And, not surprisingly, their answer is not less guns, it's more guns. Instead of actually standing for gun safety like they claim, and advocating for the only sane solution, an immediate ban on the private sale of military-style assault rifles, semi-automatic pistols and high-capacity magazines, the mass killer's weapons of choice, their solution is an armed guard in every school in America.

Every school?

What next, every movie theater and shopping mall too? And all this in the supposed defense of the gun owner's sacred Second Amendment rights. I can't speak for what the founding fathers had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment, but this periodic slaughter of innocents sure ain't it.
