Your Daily Dose of BuzzFlash at Truthout, via my pal Mark Karlin:
Wayne LaPierre is the number one example of why there is no such thing as a “good gun owner,” only over-the-top zealots who appear overdosed on out of date anti-psychotics. One of the great ironic paranoid fixations of the FOX cult is that they are victims: victims of the government, victims of minorities, victims of Hollywood, victims of transmissions from Mars for that matter.
Of course, it’s all some fantastic Gothic psychosis. After all, what is the federal or local government telling any of these wingers to do? What is so oppressing them? Tell us about it, but we want a psychiatrist and an armed teacher on hand just in case one of the LaPierre “good guy” nut jobs goes whacko and with an AK-47. [...]
The solution is simple, forget about putting armed police in every school: “I suggest putting a teacher in every gun store,” writes Jef Johnson. (The proposal appeared on the Facebook site: “I love it when I wake up in the morning and Barack Obama is President.” What can beat a stern teacher with a yardstick watching over the gun guys and gun sellers who skirt the law? [...]
Maybe Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker can get some armed teachers in every gun shop to keep the gun guys on the up and up.
Please go here for the rest, because I left out a major part of Mark’s post that you simply have to read.
