'Gunfight at the OK Public School'?

It seems we have lost all our common sense. The NRA wants armed guards in schools. Great. The sickos should not be in the schools to start with. What about bars installed at all access points? Wouldn't that make more sense? If these critters get into the schools then we will have a Gunfight at the OK Public School. Can you imagine the added unnecessary costs involved in putting armed guards in every school in this country? I am a former NRA member but methinks LaPierre has lost an oar.

I have owned a pistol for many years, but I cannot fathom anyone wanting an automatic rifle. Anyone who likes the rat-a-tat-tat sound can join the military if they qualify. I have served in a prior war and that sound leaves me cold. When the Second Amendment was written I don't believe the Founding Fathers had automatics in mind for the citizenry to protect themselves.

Something must be done to protect the children, but we mustn't resort to politics or special interest groups.
