The NRA Offers It's Solution For Mass Murders
In response to the massacre of children in Connecticut with an assault weapon, the CEO of the National Rifle Association called for the use of more guns. He told a national audience that the only way to prevent massacres from happening is to put armed security guards in our schools. He argued that a good guy with a gun will kill the bad guy with a gun. That scenario reminds me of the western movies that I saw as a kid. Everyone was armed with a gun, but the good guys always managed to kill the bad guys. That fantasy is still alive for the NRA and, unfortunately, for many Americans. This editorial does what it can to destroy the fantasy. I doubt that it will be successful.
