So arming teachers is the way forwards. Just as armed (and trained) “officers” who hesitated is (are?) “cowards”. Armed and trained “good guys” much more familiar with confronting armed “bad guys”. And because they hesitated they are cowards.
And because “Wayne, Chris, and the folks who work so hard at the @NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots.” The same Wayne who said “opportunists” were using the 14 February tragedy, in which 17 people were killed, to expand gun control and abolish US gun rights.
The convoluted logic on display – whose only purpose is to protect vested interests rather than lives – is your culture at its worst.
I guess that here in the UK we have – in percentage terms – as many angry young men as you, as many with “mental issues” as you. But you are alone in your repeated hand-wringing of inertia each time these needless tragedies take more young lives.
You are alone in having this inane “right” – written at a different time and in a different place – that has become inviolate and enshrined in a mental illness of “Fuck you, I have rights!”
Dear USA your paranoia keeps showing. Your cultural insecurities are on display again and again. Paranoia and insecurities? Any “background checks” would determine no enshrined absolutes at all when it comes to “good guy OR bad guy” guns. Any background check would determine you have no “Fuck you, I have rights” at all. The world stage on which you parade your paranoia and insecurities sees that for what it is.
And, in the case of a country whose culture also defines itself the global policeman of right and wrong … that might be classed as a country-wide mental illness on a planetary scale.
We want to love you. It’s just stuff like this means we are never sure when the FYIHR gets in the way of other “world stage stuff”. When this enshrined paranoia and insecurity will be your motivation for acting a certain way. When your “money talks”, your “no one looks after me, I look after me.” When your cocktail of so much weird stuff means you drag our country into stuff we should not be dragged into (but go along with because we have our own insecurities).
It’s just we don’t have the plethora of armed assault rifles and the FYIHR or the constitution that says it’s all ok. It’s just that if armed officers hesitate, then arming teachers is not the solution.
God bless America? Please remove your head from up your ass.
