Ah, thanks for the additional insights, folks. I think I am finally beginning to understand your thinking. Okay then, let me see if I understand the argument points some of you folks are making:
You need guns, ... because other folks out there have guns.
And as the other folks out there obtain more guns, then you need more guns too, ... to protect yourselves from those additional guns.
And, the mother of the gunman would have been much safer if she had kept one of her extensive collection of guns "on her person" at all times while in her own home ( even when sitting on the toilet, because ya just never know when the threat's gonna come, right? )
And you believe that the mother would have shot her own son to death the moment she felt threatened, and before he could pull the trigger ( I mean of course she would have, wouldn't ALL mothers shoot their own children to death to save themselves. Isn't that what mothers do? )
And these adults who died in the elementary school would have been safer if they too, all of the administrators, and secretaries and teachers in the school, were armed with guns.
And of course let's not forget the school custodians. The custodians should be armed, too, right? I mean, that's just common sense.
And of course the children too would have been much, much safer if all of them were armed with guns, right?
Ok, I'm fully up to speed. So now let's all sing the elementary school pro-gun song together in unison:
"A Glock Semi-Automatic 9mm pistol in every child's backpack!" ...
"A Sig Sauer Semi-Automatic 9mm pistol in every child's lunchbox!" ...
"A Bushmaster AR-15 .223 Semi-Automatic rifle in every child's hall locker!"
Wow, you're right, folks. That's a much more catchy tune for 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds than singing "The Wheels on the Bus" and "I'm a Little Teapot." I mean really, those kids need to grow up and see the world as it us.
YES!!! That's the ticket. Now we're talkin'. Because we all know the message by now, ...
that none of us will ever truly be safe ....until EVERY man, woman and child is packing!!!
