It's obvious to me, we've lost our sanity when it comes to gun control. The idea of armed enforcers in all schools is beyond my comprehension. I assume if this doesn't work, then what?We (to borrow an army adage) "double" it!?

Why not bring in the SWAT team and post them on rooftops? Blast anyone who looks suspicious.

Forgive me father, for we have sinned. (It's been 20 years since my last confession.)

Tom Keith,
