Thread Name: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
The CBC eight-o'clock news this morning had an item on the NRA attack advertisement targeting (pun intended) President Obama's family.
"When the president's children are at school, they are protected by armed guards," intoned the voice. "But President Obama doesn't think your children deserve the same level of protection" or words to that effect.
Interesting, especially when considered in light of the NRA catchphrase that guns don't kill people; people kill people. By the same token, then, guns don't protect people; people protect people.
So is the NRA suggesting a Secret Service detachment in every American school?
