saulgoldie BS: Shooting tragedies and guns (1379* d) RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns 22 Dec 12

Well, I know I heard/saw it very recently. But I cannot find it at the moment. However, the speaker had done a careful and thorough research into the history of guns and gun control in the US, and he discovered that the current, um, "discussion" (read: talking points)is not like any that has been before. Even in the "wild wild west" there was considerable gun control. But some cynical people have figured out that the early "reptile brain" is easily manipulated with appeals to fear, whereas the more evolved (evolved!) cortex is much more nuanced.

Anyhoo, try this on for size. Instead of an armed officer in each school, how about a teacher in every gun shoppe?
