The president of the United States recommends arming teachers at our schools as the answer to stop future school shootings. This is just another example of being stupid or licking the boots of the NRA. Why not add significant gun ownership restrictions?
Experts from the Harvard School of Public Health, using data from 26 developed countries, have shown that wherever there are more firearms, there are more homicides. In the case of the United States, exponentially more: the American murder rate is roughly 15 times that of other wealthy countries, which have much tougher laws controlling private ownership of guns.
It seems obvious that gun sales are way more important in the United States than lives.
