    I can't in any way see how that is a good thing, surely trying to work on the problem rather than confront it like that is the way forward.

    Apparently the congressmen now want to be armed too after the baseball shooting. And so things get exponentially worse.

    What stipulations would there be to using the gun in class?

    Did I fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth with an Ofsted inspection due I kinda lost track myself.But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you've gotta work out using only a calculator, the value of Pi and the text book in front of you whether "You feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

    9mm semi (Glock would be my choice), double tap centre mass, quick succession. Any more leaves you open to other attack. Problem is the psychological damage that killing someone does to you.

    I think it's quite sensible.

    Although there would need to be few gun trained teachers in every school.

    For it to work properly.

    And they need to make sure they don't put it down somewhere and get distracted.

    Building a wall between you and your neighbour and trying to stick the cost on them?
    Pulling out of a global climate change accord because you were elected by the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris?
    Banning travel from muslim states apart from the one that is pretty well universally recognised as the source of finance for most jihadist terrorist organisations in the world?
    Sacking your FBI director for refusing to drop an investigation into your conduct and discussions with a foreign hostile state prior to your election to office?

    Need I go on?

    Meh. I still think putting guns in schools is the worst idea.

    Would arming the students satisfy your desire to see something more bat shit crazy?

    Many of the teachers I had probably shouldn't be allowed near firearms. Especially the ones that were targets for abuse by students.

    Well, in Texas universities it is illegal to carry a dildo but not a concealed handgun.

    That bat shit crazy enough for you?

    I've seen that before. Hilarious and sad at the same time.
