Thread Name: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
In Rap's list for 2009-2010, there were 11 school homicides. For the last year you can maybe quadruple that, including the Newtown shootings.

Still a long way short of 200 a year, the average number of American children killed by their mothers.

Which would be the more all-American solution, (1) put an armed guard in every home or (2) issue every child with a gun to defend itself against mummy as soon as it was old enough to aim and fire it?
