I'd like to think that Wayne LaPierre damaged the NRA this morning

but I doubt it. I can't remember ever being more horrified, but I know enough not to project my feelings onto others.

I fully expect our schools to turn into armed camps. People are easy to manipulate when they're scared and they want immediate "solutions".

I think about the schools my son attended when he was little; tiny rural schools with relaxed happy atmospheres and I try to imagine armed guards and locked doors and I just want to cry.

1. I think he did do the NRA great damage. They simply were unreasonable.

And they have to have a considerable membership who will think twice before renewing after this display of nonsense.

2. Shoot out at the OK classroom!

That will put the moms and the women in our country at ease.

I think this shows how out of touch these gun nuts are.

More guns are part of the problem not part of solution.

3. Our schools are

All exterior doors are locked except the front door. At the door is the office, and in the high school, a receptionist.

We have UNARMED School Resource Officers who are members of the Sheriff's Dept. DARE group. Their sole task is drug interdiction.

I live in a large, rural county which is a bedroom community of Atlanta.

Lots and lots of armed crazy right wing nuts around here. Yes, Newtown could happen here. Easily.

But, I do NOT believe the solution is armed guards at our schools.
