Connecticut elementary school shooting

So there was another school shooting today. It’s upsetting but not surprising anymore. I wonder how long until we hear conservatives call for elementary teachers to be allowed to carry weapons to school because they could have stopped this.

If gun control people wanted to get serious they should take a play out of the anti-abortion playbook. That is, we obviously can’t ban guns outright because it’s in the Constitution but maybe laws can be enacted that makes it so difficult to possess, keep and use guns that gun use and availability is reduced. Maybe we could force people who wanted to buy a gun to get a trans-vaginal ultrasound? Since a person buying a gun would be consenting to the “ultrasound”, that’s not improper.

Maybe in my lifetime we’ll start to see a movement in that direction but I’m not going to hold my breath.
