Gun-rights advocates state that arming school teachers, and perhaps movie theater employees, will protect the public. They also suggest that open-carry laws will reduce the incidence of public shootings.
OK. Let's all pack heat, anywhere and everywhere. Let's prove that in a world where you can never really be sure the person next to you won't pull out a piece and blow you away will in fact be safer. Let's demonstrate that "thou shall not kill" applies only when those who carry weapons think it should, and not when they feel someone deserves to be killed. Let's put everyone just a little further on edge, and make certain all know that if their actions can be, for whatever reason, perceived as a threat by anyone around them that they will be killed. Let's ensure that every person in this country feels that killing another human can be an acceptable course of action. And most importantly, let's teach our kids that to be safe in the world they need to be armed and willing to kill anyone around them.
Yeah, enough of this babble about "civilization" and "peace" and "living in harmony." Let's just ramp up the threat of violent death. That should make everyone feel safe. After all, it seems to work in North Korea.
