How clever we are, let's have teachers carry guns. NOT

It is more than understandable that there has been so much written about guns since the terribly sad events in Newtown, CT. last week.  We all want answers.  Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the NRA suggested that the only answer to " a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun".  In the Providence Journal on Saturday, Dec. 22, a writer agrees, "Good guys with guns are the solution to bad guys with guns."

I suggest that you consider a better solution to "bad guys with guns" - "bad guys with NO guns".

And if we really are serious, arm the teachers with more and better mental health resources for students.
