By now you’ve probably read about the latest mass murder on a school campus. There’s always two predictable responses: 1) an outcry and a call for sensible gun regulations and 2) “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”.
Let’s face it, those who want to be armed to the teeth will, ’till their dying breath, say “you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers”.
Neither of these approaches has put an end to mass murders at our schools. It is time to try something different. Something radical.
The right to bear arms is carved into our Constitution via the 2nd Amendment. But there is no corresponding right to an education.
The solution is obvious. Shut down schools. Without schools, there will no longer be mass murders on school grounds. Kids can learn what they need to know from parents, grandparents and internet chat rooms.
