Let’s discount the absurdities spewed by low information conservative minds deaths caused by cars, knives, alcohol etc. that weren’t designed to just kill. The fact that at the time the Newtown killer attacked, another man in China used a knife in a classroom and INJURED twenty-two primary school children should punch holes in our gun nut culture logic. By the way, here’s what China is trying to do:
China was hit by a spate of knife and cleaver attacks that targeted school children in 2010. A number of measures were introduced at the time, including increased security at schools across the country and a regulation requiring people to register with their national ID cards when buying large knives.
Registration for large knives?
The Cap Times article “Teachers weigh in on proposal for guns in schools” riled up the conservative gun nut thuggery who probably never read the article.
Here’s a compilation of comments dominated by right wingers who got the word out gun nuts the time is now to show their stupidity:
moyboy25: I wouldn't trust any teacher with a loaded firearm after the hate, anger and vitriol displayed during the teacher riots at the capitol. Teachers carrying guns?? You got to be kidding !! Laughable.
Here’s the typical comment from a conservative who’s seen too many movies. My credit union and former bank did not have armed guards. Has this idiot been to a bank lately? Can you say “cameras?”
ET: We have armed guards at banks, for a good reason. I guess Wisconsin thinks less of its children than of money. It figures.
And then there’s the racist and completely ignorant comment below that somehow connects protecting presidents to the thousands of schools in the country. Again, if this is the solution now, imagine the kind of country we’ll have 30 years from now:
skippie: No more guns for secret service protecting Obama. It's just to dangerous. Only a liberal is stupid enough to declare a school a gun free zone and than express shock when a bad person goes there with a gun to kill people. The people that declare schools gun free zones should be put in prison and sued. All they did was paint a big target on the place.
And finally, the fact that as a nation, we’re actually discussing the insane plan put forth by the NRA.
Isn’t there anything that’s just too crazy to take seriously anymore?
