The organization's hysteric solution to gun violence in America is to put designated sitting ducks -- er, "armed police officers" -- in every American school.

Rachel brings up so many bad arguments in this column, that it's difficult to respond. "Brigadier Gen. S.L.A Marshall pegged the firing rate among World War II combat soldiers at only 15 percent to 20 percent of maximum rate, even when the enemy was exposed -- meaning that soldiers found killing to be prohibitively counterintuitive and wouldn't kill the enemy despite having a clear shot." Turns out that Marshall's "Ratio of Fire" theory was disproven due to him inventing the data. All of Marshell's writings are very dubious. Rachel is using very sloppy journalism, to prove her point. It took me 5 minutes to research this, and she's getting paid for this. Regardless, fighting in combat is different than fighting one stupid burglar.
After a tragedy like the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., the injection of anything short of seriousness into the subsequent public discourse about guns is touchy. But last week, the National Rifle Association blasted numerous rounds into that particular barrier with NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre's mouth.
