I know you proposed your solution to the gun problem the other day: armed guards at every school.Did you know that there was an armed guard at Columbine on the day of the (now) second worst school massacre in US history? Did you know that the trained officer was ineffective in doing anything? Did you know that after taking several shots he called for backup - which arrived quickly because another officer was writing a speeding ticket just blocks from the school. Did you know that the backup arrived only a minute later, and that STILL did nothing to stop the carnage?Did you know that while you were giving your speech, a crazy man with a gun shot up a church in Pennsylvania and killed three people? Do you think we need to have armed guards at all the churches in America too?Did you know that there are armed guards already stationed at airports throughout the world and people with guns still show up there to kill people? And that there was a multiple shooting at an airport in Ohio just a couple weeks ago? Another in Mexico City a few months ago? Another in Los Angeles a few years ago? And horrific mass shootings at airports from Frankfurt to Lod to India and Zagrev over the years, all with "armed guards" patrolling?Did you know that most of the country holds the NRA in contempt, and that your so called solutions have been tried, are being tried, and continue to fail? Will you ever consider another alternative?Apparently not, and America will continue to be the poorer for it. And the deaths of future children will be on your head. How do you live with that?
