The Trump Solution
Trump suggested the solution to mass shootings at schools is to equip teachers with handguns. I think this is a goofy idea. Why?
- A teacher with a handgun is no match for a well-rehearsed maniac with a machine gun.
- We have already seen that guards armed only with handguns were reluctant to confront a shooter at the Florida shooting.
- Even a well trained, armoured swat team armed with machine guns cannot quickly take out a shooter.
- Bringing guns into the classroom invite gun violence between students over trivial disputes.
The obvious solution is to ban machine guns. They have no purpose other than mass shootings.
Trump claimed had he been at the school he would have confronted the gunman and killed him. This is another of Trump’s boastful lies. Ole Bonespurs’ history is to run from danger. Had he done so, there would be no more need to impeach him. He would have had almost no chance against a machine gun.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
