Doug, here in Florida, we had become the murder capitol of the nation 25 years ago. Republicans finally took over the state legislature and tore down the good ole boy concealed carry permit system that had been the democrats pet for 50 years. We became a "shall issue" state and this week will have over one million active permits going. The Travyon thugs here have discovered that citizens are no longer easy pickings and that everybody commands equal respect. In other words, crime no longer pays in Florida and has dropped significantly now that 5% of the population is packin'. If one state passed a law allowing teachers to carry at school, there would be NO MORE school shootings anywhere!

My heart is sick. I feel so sorry for the children who were murdered, as well as the parents and loved ones of the slain kids and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. All of us here in the U.S.—who still have a soul—pray for those whose lives were just senselessly shattered.

But imagine if at least one teacher (with a concealed weapons permit) had their .40-caliber Glock with them, locked and loaded, when this weed Adam Lanza began his murderous mayhem Friday on the Sandy Hook Elementary School campus. What would have happened differently?

Would...
