Some ideas are bad but people act on them anyway. Not that I have never been guilty of it, but I call that stupid.
Does she really think this will relieve anyone's dentist phobia? Reminds me of a phlebotomist who did vampire impressions before taking a blood sample. I fainted. Served her right!
Let's just keep looking.
(Some people don't get my sense of humor.)
Now here are some REALLY BAD ideas:
- Putting guns in schools
- Arming teachers
- Turning school buildings into medium security prison compounds
- Selling guns to children
- Having guns and ammunition where a motivated student can ferret them out
- Focusing safety measures on schools and ignoring the fact that a school is a part of a larger community. Until our communities are safe places for all, children will not be safe.
- Letting the NRA dictate our national agenda
Yes, absolutely, we need to protect our school children. But for any solution we need to be asking, "What can go wrong?" And this is the third incident I have heard about in the last two days:
