In response to the NRA’s ‘brilliant’ plan to arm teachers and place armed guards in every school in America, Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy had this to say:
Let me be clear, freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher.
And security should not mean a guard posted outside every classroom. That is not who we are in Connecticut and it is not who we will allow ourselves to become.
Why is this so hard a concept for gun nuts to grasp? Freedom and reasonable gun control are not mutually exclusive ideas except in the minds of those who refuse to factor common sense into the mix. Congress has a decision to make. They can start listening to people like this…
…or continue to cater to the paranoid freaks and bottom dwellers like this next guy. Decisions don’t come packaged any clearer than this.
