Jesse Ventura has an idea! No, it’s not about Big Foot’s secret FEMA death camp involvement in the Twin Towers attack. To protect our kids from criminals, crazies and/or terrorists, the former Minnesota governor reckons schools should hire gun-toting ex-cops and vets to . . . sweep the floors and kill active shooters.
It fits with the NRA’s post-Newtown proposal and yes, sounds crazy. But it just might work! Only . . .
State schools — more or less owned, but certainly operated by left-leaning unions — would have to change their hiring practices to favor janitors who can operate operationally. Administrators would have to assume the “risk” of gun-toting janitors who go rogue (as opposed to non-gun toting janitors who commit sex crimes).
How about we let teachers, administrators, staff and parents exercise their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right on school grounds? That way you’d have more than one armed defender. Which reminds me . . .
Donald Trump promised to repeal and not replace Bush the Elder’s Gun Free School Zones Act. On his first day in office, no less. Not that he has the power to do so without an act of Congress. But still. Still we wait . . .
Despite the President’s press secretary’s semi-assurance in January that he’d get to it. Eventually. Meanwhile, maybe Mr. Ventura’s Under Siege strategy does have merit. Your thoughts?
