On Gun Control

If I squint hard enough to ignore the obvious flaws in the argument, I understand why people might think that armed guards in schools could increase security.

And if I tie my brain in a knot, I imagine how somebody might think a heavily armed populace is necessary to secure liberty in case things get a little Third Reichy around here.

But no matter how brutally I torture logic, I can’t figure out how so many people can believe both of these things at the same time.

"Our guns are all that stand between us and a police state! Also, let’s get some more storm troopers in the schools!"
