"How about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion — mandatory 48-hr waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he's about to do, a video he has to watch about the effects of gun violence, an ultrasound wand up the a#! (just because). Let's close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun.
"It makes more sense to do this with young men and guns than with women and health care, right? I mean, no woman getting an abortion has killed a room full of people in seconds, right?"

I have a daughter in college and one going next year. I read that there is a college shooting almost every day. And yet, Congress does nothing.
I am so angry at the Republican suggestions that we arm teachers in order to protect class rooms. The idea is so stupid on its face that I can't fathom how anyone would suggest it. Either you have the gun locked up in a drawer, in which case it probably won't help you kill an armed shooter who enters your class OR you leave it where the kids can get to it. Duh!
An even better response to that suggestion was a letter from a kindergarten, or maybe elementary school teacher, who said something like "you want me to stand up to a gunman in my classroom because you are too cowardly to stand up to a a few lobbyists?" That is hitting the nail on the head.
I agree with Lynx's posting too.
