  1. That’s pretty much the argument I gave my “arm the teachers” nephew at Christmas. Just thinking of the various not-very-stable teachers through 12 years of school, there are several that a bad day and a gun wouldn’t have been a good match at all. And the wonder was, that after thinking about it, he agreed!

  2. I think that’s the crux of the argument. You start to think about the bad apples you know and what they’d have been like with a gun… It’s hard to imagine anyone being like “Oh, but I’m sure it will be okay.” It’s the kind of thing that, even if it sounds good in the abstract, when you start to think about specific assholes, becomes terrifying.
