Gun nuts crazier than previously believed

I was just re-reading my Newton post from last December, and I had to laugh when I got to item #3:
3. The "armed bystanders could have stopped it" argument should be gone for good. Unless you want to arm schoolteachers. More than that, the mere existence of children should remind us that not every potential target can be hardened.
The schoolteacher point was so ridiculous that I deemed it self-refuting. I guess the five months of Serious Debate about this proposal--and attempts to actually implement it in some states!--should teach me a lesson. Particularly, that there is no pro-gun policy too insane for the depraved, stupid gun lobby.
