The National Rifle Association (NRA) is sticking to its stance on guns, calling for an armed guard in every school across America. National Rifle Association chief executive officer Wayne LaPierre said on Friday: "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."Err, no. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is to not give him the gun.
It's not rocket engineering.
No good guy with a gun has ever taken out the bad guy with a gun, despite so many millions of Americans being armed on a day to day basis.
Taken to it's logical conclusion: firefighters should also be armed, nurses, doctors, all postal workers (not only the nutters), cinema staff, teachers, parents - children too! Then everyone can shoot each other, and it won't be long before some schmuck holding a mobile phone is shot down in the mistaken belief he (it's always a "he") was taking a rest between rounds, rather than composing an SMS.
What the hell, hand out guns and bullets for free, a birthright. It'll save the NRA millions of dollars currently spent peddling their lethal and uncivilized ideology. They could set up a free funeral fund with the unspent funds, because there will be funerals: every day, every week, every month - around 30,000 people in the USA die by the gun every year.
