It Takes a Police State to Raise a Child

Doug Newman - comments on the recent school shooting in Bailey, Colorado. The nanny-staters, of course, have their panties in a wad about the new laws "we" need to make it somehow harder for criminals to have guns at schools. Been there. Done that. Didn't work. What would work is lots of well-armed and well-trained teachers at every school, and some like-equipped students at high schools and colleges. But don't expect the Brady Bunch to learn that reality any time soon.

I can hear people saying: I basically support the Second Amendment, but do we really neeeeed guns in schools?

Let me give you a little thought experiment.

Let's say that one of the students ordered to leave the room on Wednesday at Platte Canyon High had a gun in his book bag. And let us say that, fearing for his life and the lives of those around him, he shot Morrison. The innocent life of Emily Keyes would have been saved and no girls would have been sexually assaulted and traumatized.
