Wayne's World - Maybe It's Worth a Shot!

Upon hearing of the Sandy Hook tragedy and the NRA's Wayne LaPierre's  solution to the ongoing school carnage, I feel compelled to offer my solution to the ongoing school carnage.

Since the NRA refuses to relinquish its stand on assault weapons being sold to the public, maybe it would be wise to station armed personal at school buildings as he suggests, so as to wart attacks by crazed gunmen carrying military style weapons.
            Who better to protect our children against attack by persons carrying military weapons than the military itself?
            We currently have troops in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have thousands of service men stationed throughout the world in Germany, Japan, Korea and so on.
I propose that we bring them all home and have them provide the security that Mr. LaPierre speaks of, at each and every school in the nation.
            The "Defense" Department continually claims to be defending us with our troops in foreign lands, thousands of miles away, fighting endless, futile wars and engaged in perpetual occupations.
            This would be their opportunity to really defend us here at home, where we are actually being threatened.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
