    But what will our schools look like when we are done? What will our schools feel like? Is this where we are to train and nurture a free society, in the midst of assault rifles and bulletproof armor? Those things signify and communicate something quite other than freedom.

    They impose an environment of fear, which can be debilitating to our youth, whom we should want to be confident, open, honest and happy. These are not the kinds of things you see in a free society, but a society at war. How bizarre is it that we would willfully take on the trappings of a society at war, while countless nations around the world — embroiled in real, live civil wars — envy our peace?

    This is madness, of course. The NRA’s logic dictates that we should make our schools look like war zones to accommodate unfettered gun rights.

    The only war zone is the battlefield in your mind where intelligent thoughts are outnumber and slaughtered by your ignorance.

    And the all the snowflakes will melt...the end.

    Guns in school, if properly implemented will be no different than when they are implemented in any other public arena.

    Too funny. Who do you think you're kidding? You people have been training youth against a free society for decades.

    Being heavily armed is better than being dead any day. You can wish us to be a civil and peaceful society all you want but that doesn’t make it so. If you want to put your life in the hands of people that won’t come to your rescue until enough others show up well good luck, I’d rather trust myself.

    If I walk down the street and am gunned downed by a guy who drops his AR-15 on the street and it discharges into my face, the gun nuts would blame me for not wearing full body armor.

    Actually we should be putting armed guards at schools so liberals can't get in.
