Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Just What We Need–More Guns… In Schools

It was of course inevitable.   Here’s the first right-wing wacko to declare that the solution to mass homicides is still more weapons.  Republican congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert (from Texas, no surprise) says that mass shooters choose sites where victims will be unarmed and continues “I wish to god she [the school principal] had had an m-4 in her office, locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out … and takes him out and takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.” So I guess if we takes this line of thinking to its logical conclusion we’ll have SWAT-trained marines in place of educators in the principals’ offices just waiting to blast the first kid who gets out of line.  These are the same guys who insist teachers are overpaid and should spend more time talking about the Bible. Oh, and we mustn’t spend another dollar of taxpayer money on our schools.
