Yes, Steve, the NRA's suggestion that more guns in schools will make them safer is a part of gun culture. I await your derision. Perhaps you will suggest that I am not patriotic enough. Or I hate the constitution.
Actually, the expert in this story agrees that national laws will probably not stop school shootings. I get that. Despite Steve's selective reading, I have been pretty open to the suggestion that gun regulations will have limited effectiveness. What I have suggested is that we, as a culture start to stand up to this gun culture that deifies weapons.

Perhaps a start is that we start shaming or pushing people who hoard weapons to stop doing that. Perhaps we stop encouraging the paranoia of the right and somehow legitimizing it as reasonable. It would be nice if the grownup gun people would somehow differentiate themselves in the public sphere from LaPierre and Ted Nugent. That, of course, would gut the entire idiot base of the Republican party, I am well aware, but it would be better for all of us.
I won't hold my breath. In the meantime, be sure to take offense at this post.
