The NRA’s chief shill and huckster, Wayne LaPierre, wants to arm all our teachers. This could easily lead to more deaths, of course, but it would mean many more sales for the gun makers, which is apparently his aim.
What’s next? How about:
Arm all convenience store clerks because that’s a dangerous job.
Guns for all clerics at houses of worship; someone has to protect the weekly offerings.
Firearms for all bank tellers and administrative people, obviously.
Guns for grocers: Grocery stores and supermarkets get robbed too often.
Pharmacists and drugstore clerks surely need guns to stop drug robberies.
Shoplifters might be armed, so retail clerks need guns, too.
Arm all emergency room nurses and doctors, because injured criminals often head for the ER.
How about gun training for all elementary school children?
LaPierre said in an interview to call him crazy. I couldn’t agree more.
