    that we are actually wasting resources on this foolishness. Aside from the fact that the unintended consequences could be catastrophic (see for example the story about the new armed security guard at an elementary school accidentally leaving his loaded gun in the boys restroom) statistically children are safer from gun violence in school than just about anywhere. Meanwhile, we have communities that are absolutely plagued by gun violence, where children are in fact being killed on an almost daily basis, where the violence is escalating every day because they have absolutely no resources to combat it-and they aren't even part of the conversation. Meanwhile, the gun manufacturers just keep reaping profits from the souls of dead school children. This is sick.

    You must work-we must all work-to make a world that is worthy of its children -Pablo Casals Please support TREE Climbers for victims of child sexual abuse and exploitation.
