What is going on when parents even have to consider wrapping their children in Kevlar before sending them to school?
-Many talking of fortifying schools.
-Talk of arming teachers.
-Armed guards for schools
Now children are being supplied with bullet proof equipment.
Yet any hint of controlling the distribution of guns within society hits a brick wall.
As gun control legislation grinds to halt in Washington, a growing number of parents and teachers are taking matters into their own hands.This is an indictment of a society in deep trouble, and a sign of a complete and utter failure to adapt to the present.
The Denver company that supplied Jaliyah's rucksack, Elite Sterling Security, has sold over 300 in the last two months and received inquiries from some 2,000 families across the US.
According to the gun lobby we have to adapt to their corporate needs to sell more and more lethal weapons with fewer and fewer constraints.
We will be safer with more and more guns in every walk of life.
Our children will be wrapped in bullet proof material.
Armed guards and teachers will patrol the corridors and classrooms.
What the fuck?
Seriously how much crazier do we have to get before we realize that you cannot control the end result of an out of control arms race?
I suppose if the only good guys were to wear white hats and the bad guys black hats; it would all work out alright?
A childhood wrapped up in body armor?
Only in America.
