Yes, teachers should teach chemistry with a gun in their pocket. Let's see now if anyone dares disrupt class. That said young people like to play daredevil all the time, and we may end up with some teachers reaching the end of the rope and pulling their 9 mm on them. By the way, teachers killing other teachers on the campuses of our universities, that happened before. Teachers turned terrorist, that too happened before. Remember Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber?
Don’t worry, we have a solution for that one too. We are going to arm the students. Really, what could stay in the way of making our schools safe, not even common sense. Oh, the benefits of that! Think about it, this will definitely improve their grades, for who in his right mind would from now give a student the failing grade it deserves. Now if upset students start killing other students and the teachers they don't like, we will arm the parents, and that should teach them a lesson.
As the NRA word of wisdom goes the only thing preventing a bad guy with a gun from killing a good guy is a good guy with a gun. So let us arm all the good guys of America, the bad guys already have full access to anything they sell at the gun shop, and make America safe once and forever, right? Well, there is a little tiny bitsy problem with that plan.
In a world where most everyone pretends to be someone he is not, how do you tell the good guys from the bad guys? Look at our political system, for example. They all pretend to be the good guy on the stump fighting for the poor and the downtrodden, but are they really? Do not lose hope now. We’re working on figuring the good ones and the bad ones and we are leaving no Facebook comment unturned.
While they do that, imagine this, fellow Americans. Everybody, and I mean bad guys, good guys, not so bad and not so good guys, all carrying guns to work, at the mall, in college, at the supermarket or at the museum, and doing that to protect the good guys with guns from the bad guys with guns. Imagine someone takes the first shot, or that another mysterious Vegas shooting happens and bad guys who think they are the good guys start fighting the good guys they think are the bad guys, or as some would call it, the new American civil war. Who do you think will be the winner? I don't know about you but my money is on the NRA.
In fact, the money is always with the NRA, right now. The gun industry is a $40 billion a year business, and if you think any of its profiteers really wants mass shootings to stop, buy yourself a gun and blow your brains out. True, this would not solve anything but what would under the circumstances. Take heart, though. If we get alive from this Age of Irrational, the prophecy says there will be a thousand years of peace. The big question is, will we?
