Your eyes aren't deceiving you. There has been 147 school shootings since Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 elementary school children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. That means there has been an average of four school shootings per month for the past three years. Let that stat sink in for a second.
The NRA's answer to these endless massacres at our nations schools is to arm every teacher to the teeth, a preposterous position that "The Daily Show" recently disproved with their 'Good Guy With a Gun' special.
My favorite part of the simulation at the end of the segment is when police officers shoot the corespondent (with paintballs) because he was holding a gun. This is the same reason why an armed former Marine at the recent mass shooting in Oregon didn't go after the shooter. How will first responders know who is the "bad guy with a gun" if everyone has theirs out and is randomly shooting at people?
I wonder how many more school shootings we will have to go through before the NRA finally admits that their "arm everyone, everywhere" position doesn't work? This is not the Wild West and we don't need every teacher armed to the teeth in order to keep our children safe.
