Ten ways to stop school shootings

Let's do this thing. I can't get away with this on Facebook, but I wish to try it here.

Governor Huckabee wants religion in the public schools to stop shootings; fake Morgan Freeman wants to muzzle media. Those both run afoul of the First Amendment.

Mayor Bloomberg and Sen. Feinstein are not hewing too closely to the spirit or letter of the Second.

Clearly, the real problem is the Third. Were we to quarter soldiers in these children's homes they could protect their charges from the bad guys. Problem solved.

Maybe routine, random searches of boys from 12-27 (once they're off Mommy's health insurance, they're adults). See if they've got too much ammunition.

Hell, we could lock up those with Asperger's.

Jury trials, cruel and unusual punishment, unenumerated rights and enumerated powers are left as an exercise to the reader. But clearly THE BILL OF RIGHTS IS CAUSING SCHOOL SHOOTINGS! We must abolish it.

It's . . . wait for it . . . for the children!

Gun Rights Posted by John Kranz at December 17, 2012 9:31 AM

Sarcasm and frustration duly noted. I feel it too.

I'm leaning toward measures to restrict guns in homes with mentally challenged persons of all ages, but it's a slippery slope where government determines "mentally challenged." ATF Form 4473, the gun dealer transfer form asks in question 11f, "Have you ever been adjudicated mentally defective (which includes having been adjudicated incompetent to manage your own affairs) or have you ever been committed to a mental institution?" Expand this to include "or anyone residing with you?" Maybe. But the CT boy, it seems, was never "adjudicated."

A better solution? Perhaps relocate all schools into movie theaters showing "The Hobbit."
