The gun industry and its progeny, the National Rifle Association, want to arm everybody, and arm all the teachers in the schools. Arming every teacher in America would be expensive and intrusive. Arm the students.

Consider: A gunman enters a first-grade classroom and is met with a hail of .22 hollow points fired conveniently at the groin level, effectively taking him out. And I bet the kids of today are good shots after playing all those video games.

Such a plan meets NRA’s gunslinger-in-chief Wayne LaPierre’s axiom of a bad man with a gun is met by a good man (in this case a good munchkin) with a gun — 15 of them.

What a wonderful surprise, a win-win for everybody except the “harvested” (gun) terrorist.
