Everyone, it seems, has an answer to the nation’s epidemic of gun violence and none of them actually deal with guns, except with the Republican meme of moar guns.
Rand Paul is floundering in his presidential campaign, so he put his own spin on moar guns by saying that the mere suggestion, through a sticker, of moar guns will solve gun problems.
“The other common denominator, other than mental illness,” he added, “is that people are going to places where guns are prohibited. So when you have a gun-free zone at a school, it’s like an invitation, if you are crazy and want to shoot people, that’s where you go. I would do the opposite. I would have and encourage every school in American put stickers on every window going into the school saying, ‘We are armed. Come in at your own peril. We have concealed carry for teachers who have it and we also have armed security and you will be shot.’”
Such stickers should be placed on “every cockpit of every commercial airliner” and on “every school,” he said.
Of course, there’s zero evidence that gun free zones have anything at all to do with mass shootings, since most don’t take place in gun-free zones and not one was stopped by someone with a gun. Also, most mass shooters kill themselves, so why would they be afraid of gun-full zones?
