Arming students is an idiotic suggestion

I seldom do spit-takes and laugh out loud when reading Everybody’s Column in The News, but the recent letter suggesting that we arm children in schools to keep them safe was an exception. I couldn’t help thinking it was either tongue-in-cheek stupidity submitted just to see if it would be printed, or proof that we really do need background checks to weed out those mentally unstable enough to proffer this kind of idiocy.
