E.W. Jackson on an American flag background
Today in E.W. Jackson news, the actual Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia says that we need more guns in schools. No, not just armed guards, but people to protect us from the armed guards, and then other people to protect us from those people, and—oh, hell, everyone should be bringing guns to schools.
"If you had, in the public school system, every person who had a concealed carry permit and was trained to use a firearm allowed to bring that firearm to school, so that those nutjobs know that if you walk into a school you don't know who you're going to face, but that people in there will be armed, I guarantee you they'll find another target. Having an armed guard there is OK, not a problem with it, very costly, OK, but it also gives them a specific target. We know where that person is, that's the only person armed, we take them out the rest of the school is at our disposal.

No folks, freedom, the Second Amendment, is the answer to dealing with these people."

Makes sense to me. Everyone needs to bring a gun to school to make sure some crackpot doesn't try to bring a gun to school. It'll be just like a potluck dinner at Glenn Beck's house.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
