effect. I think your underlying message is "don't ban guns". And you are offering an alternative, but I think there are other alternatives too.
I think I see what you're saying, even though my initial response is "WTF?!". Of course banning guns isn't the answer. Of course we didn't need armed guards in schools when we were children. Of course we had weirdos and people with problems in school, but they never took guns to school and killed dozens of people. Banning anything, words or guns, is not going to work. I am against armed guards at schools. I think that (somewhat) sympathetic media coverage of the Oregon shooting had more than a little to do with the recent shootings and averted shootings.

By the way, if you don't live here (Chicago) the term "Chicago Politics" may not have as much meaning to you.

Rich, I think you left off one of the most important unforced errors of the left. That is, latching on to the "War on Women" theme.
