Trump says he would require schools to have guns, Clinton says

Hillary Clinton says that as president, she would "tackle the epidemic of gun violence in America," while her opponent Donald Trump would "do nothing."

At a rally in Cincinnati eight days before Election Day, Clinton explained how she and Trump differ on the issue of guns. The National Rifle Association endorsed Trump, and "in return" Trump has adopted various anti-gun control positions, she said.

"He’s even said, on his very first day in office, he would require every school in America to let people carry guns into our classrooms," Clinton said. "How can anyone think our schools would be safer with more guns?"

We wondered if Trump really has said he’d put allowing guns in classrooms at the top of his priorities list.

This fall we've been performing a couple of experiments on the effects of introducing gun culture on universities and in Presidential campaigns.

Gun culture is as toxic when forced on education as it is when forced on Presidential elections.

I don't need to tell anybody here about the sickening, disgusting effects that the introduction of gun culture into this Presidential campaign has had, from loose talk of assassination, armed voter intimidation, and even talk of the possibility of overthrowing the votes of the people by force of arms.

The introduction of gun culture into this Presidential election has increased anxiety, tension, uncertainty, and fear.

This fall has also been the first semester of the introduction of gun culture into the University of Texas, and the effects on university culture has been much the same as the effects of gun culture in this Presidential campaign.

Courageous women like Ana Lopez, a leader of UT's "Cocks, not Glocks" movement, responded quickly to defend themselves and their university, with grace, humor and wit, in the very best traditions of student campus activism.

Of course, gun culture demanded that a fictional "snuff film" video be made of the assassination of Ana Lopez, with blood splattering everywhere.

The introduction of gun culture onto university campuses has increased anxiety, tension, uncertainty, and fear.

Is this just a coincidence?

Or is gun culture toxic?
