As for the Orange Disaster Area's desire to arm teachers... yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong with that.  And this teacher was both gun-trained and a reserve police officer.

Oh, joy.  A second incident with armed school personnel -- two in one day.

Yeah, guns really make schools safer, don't they?

Yeah, guns in schools (and elsewhere) sure make things safer for everyone!

Another useful response.  A Pennsylvania school district wasted $1800 on useless 16" bats for the teachers in their district as symbolic weapons of last resort.  Which is probably more expensive, but marginally less stupid than five gallon buckets of river rocks which ultimately is just ammunition for bullies to get into.

All this to protect guns rather than students.

Chain the students to their desks, from 0730 until 1530, with bathroom breaks while under guard.  Schools are prisons for the young, are they not?

Stupid solutions to serious problems are worse than ignoring problems sometimes...  They give the illusion of solving serious problems rather than solving the actual problems.  The solution to too many guns is "fewer guns".  But we aren't ready to deal with that yet.  Too many damn old white fart guys thinking they have to be prepared  to replicate the 1776 revolution.

As if...

The next generation probably will, and if I am still around, I will shout HUZZAH!
