MAYBE NOT THE STUPIDEST THING WRITTEN POST-NEWTOWN, BUT CLOSE

John Hinderaker at Power Line:
Within the realm of constitutional options, the most practical remedy I can think of would be to require that a certain number of teachers or administrators in each school be trained in the use of firearms and armed at all times. That would probably deter most school shooters. It is curious, but true, that even those killers who do not intend to survive their crimes never seem to open fire in the presence of another armed person. No one tries to shoot up a biker bar.
"It is curious, but true, that even those killers who do not intend to survive their crimes never seem to open fire in the presence of another armed person." Yeah, right. The 42 cops killed this year in America by gunfire? And the 67 killed last year? And the 59 killed the year before? The 1,132 cops killed by guns in the last 22 years? They were all killed by people who thinks cops don't carry guns in America.

Nobody ever shot a cop knowing that cop was actually armed! That couldn't possibly happen!

Good post. People like Ass Rocket live in a fiction convenient to their world.

So teacher performance will be measured by standardized test scores and kill ratios, then?

The stupidest thing written or said post-Newtown is we have so many shooters walking into schools because we keep God out, courtesy of Mike Huckabee and Bryan Fischer and other like-minded dolts. So, yes, this Hindrocket bon mot is the second stupidest. It does have a lock on second, though.

I'm thankful that a Liberal like myself has epically feckin' stupid people like Assrocket to mock, or else I'd be tempted to be a bit of an asshole myself, and mock the ordinarily stupid.

Now let me get this straight, Righties, including Assrocket, YOUR solution to this school massacre, is to arm the teachers and Principals?

Would these be the same teachers that you’ve called union thugs, who are parasites, leeching off of society with their demands for decent hours, fair pay, benefits, and secure pensions?

The people who you claim are lazy moochers, living on Easy Street, working only only part-time, with plenty of paid vacation days throughout the years?

The ones who take the Jesus and prayer out of “edumacation,” and waste our childrens precious minds and replace Him with secular garbage like math, science, poetry, literature, history, civics, foreign languages, art, and gym?

The same people you call Godless Socialists and Communists, and you claim use Fascistic methods to achieve their goals? Methods learned at the feet of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Che, Castro, and Alinsky and Ayers?

And these are the people you want to arm, and be able to open-carry in the classrooms of America’s children?

The people who’ll be trained to shoot-to-kill?

THESE PEOPLE?

If all that you’ve said about teachers is true, may I respectfully ask, “ARE YOU MOTHERFECKER’S CRAZY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”

Mr. McCain, I give you Birmingham AL yesterday: Gunman killed after shooting Birmingham police officer, 2 St. Vincent's employees. The gunman was the husband of a patient who was "unhappy" with his wife's care. He also took a security guard hostage briefly.

So tell me again how shooters never open fire in the presence of armed people.
