Make them "earn" their benefits? I thought that's what their honorable service to our country had done.

But hiring them at schools is a good idea. Especially the schools where their children attend.

If I were president, what would I do in the wake of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook School shooting, which left 20 first-graders and six adults dead, if I wanted not only to advance an ambitious initiative to reduce gun violence but also to sign a law that actually worked?

To punctuate what is at stake, I might launch my effort, as President Barack Obama did Wednesday, in a ceremony with children who had written to me after the school shooting.

I also might invite children scarred by the daily urban shootings, which don't garner as much media...
