Guns, guns and more guns
The Kansas City Star
South Dakota under a new law will let schoolteachers and others have guns in the classrooms.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed the bill into law allowing districts to arm educators and other personnel in the schools. That was after representatives of school boards, administrators and teachers said the legislation would make schools less safe because of the potential for accidental shootings, The Associated Press reports.
If that’s not bad enough in this gun crazed country, Augusta, Maine, is looking at making gun ownership mandatory. Other cities nationwide are also looking into similar legislation after the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. where a gunman on Dec. 14 killed 20 schoolchildren and six educators.
The gun logic is that when everyone is armed, no one will try anything shady. But the reality is that more guns increase the potential for gun theft and gun violence.
