Common sense? Perhaps you're not thinking. There are about 100,000 public schools and nearly as many private schools. You're common sense would argue that every public place where people gather for any purpose should have an armed guard! A million armed guards? Two million armed security guards? If you do that you have killed a democratic republic and turned this country into an armed state. You're talking about an armed force bigger than our army, bigger than the marines.

This is insanity. And it wouldn't work. If you want to get into a school or any other building you back your car through a block wall. They crumble in five seconds. Being armed to the teeth is not a solution it just perpetuates and enlarges the problem.

Actually, it's pretty common sense. He's telling people about the culture that cultivates what is so damaging.
