Yet again, another group of innocent people has been gunned down, this time in Florida. And yet again, we hear weak suggestions about background checks, and about raising the age at which would-be murderers can buy their guns. Now the (president) wants to recruit teachers into an armed militia. So should grocery clerks also be forced to carry a pistol? Should every doctor’s office be guarded by a woman with a stethoscope and an AR-15? This idea is nuts.
I just returned from Haiti. The hospital where I volunteered was guarded by men with rifles. Scary-looking guys with shotguns walked back and forth in front of restaurants. Haiti unfortunately provides a vision of what Trump and the NRA would turn our country into.
