Newton: The NRA Hasn’t Gone Far Enough: Arm the Children

leave a comment »

    The idea of putting an armed security guard in our nation’s schools simply won’t work. There was an armed guard at Columbine who traded shots with Dylan Klebold but with little effect. The guard went and called for back-up, and when the back-up arrived it was too late.

The solution, therefore, is to arm all children in our schools. This presents a logistical problem—mainly because firearms are unfortunately designed and built for adults. But if we look at ladies guns—different versions are sold in Florida—this will provide us with guidance. The gun manufacturers could take a hint from the design of 19th century gamblers’ derringers—weapons designed to be discreet.

The smaller children may only be able to handle a .22 calibre pistol but if you fire enough shots even a .22 has significant stopping power. Soon kiddy guns will accompany juice boxes and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in school lunchboxes. Obviously this is the only real solution to the problem. A terrorist will think twice before approaching a school if he thinks that the students will be packing. Perhaps concealed weapons classes could substitute for study hall. What good are studies without self-preservation? The fact is for years we have deluded ourselves with the outmoded concept of keeping guns away from children. The opposite is true: children need guns and they need them now.

    In Florida, at least, the combination of concealed weapons laws, kiddy guns, guns in school and stand your ground laws will make playground fights memorable indeed. Why play dodgeball when you can have Shootout at the OK Corral?
