I mean really. It's the only reasonable thing to do. How could anything make more sense than that?

Side: Now there's a reasonable idea

The only thing that makes more sense is to genetically engineer gun-arms right into our DNA so we can come out of the womb capping if necessary.

Did not some NRA dude say on a live real news interview...

wait, this fucks me up every time so I'm trying not to laugh.

He told a story right.

In this story third graders, a whole class of them, pulled out their (this is the funny part, laugh) GUNS AND AIMED IT AT A KID ABOUT TO KILL THE TEACHER!

No really. I'm not making it up. This is an adult telling this story to the media and he's one of the NRA people who like decide what gun nuts are supposed to think

OKAY OKAY OKAY back to the story hilarious I know right?

So, these kids they dirty-harried him into like "yah man, I totally give it up to you 3rd graders and junk you completely have the Distal Phalanx strength to pull that trigger and shoot me... I GIVE UP!!!

Let me reiterate, this is a story he told, on purpose to people who do news and stuff. Welcome to outside the NRA bubble dude, people fact-check.

Anyway. Long story short. This is just one of the many fables repeated over and over and over and over and over within that small NRA bubble that some idiots believe.

Here's a fact.

If you're going to issue guns to kids in school, you might as well issue them to infants. It's the same fucking thing.

I'm in school and I have much more cognitive ability, maturity, and a leveler head than an infant. Besides the proposition is to arm TEACHERS not STUDENTS.

I'd rather arm students. At least they aren't as overworked and underpaid as the teachers. Much less likely too snap.

Great idea! Instead of doctors killing them while in the womb they can just shoot themselves with guns!

As a baby no. Baby's lack the cognitive ability to properly Handel a fire arm safely. When they get older however (exact age depends on the parent) he/she should learn gun safety and how to shoot.

Why would you give babies a handgun at birth? That is a completly stupid and dumb idea! All the baby has to do is experiment with it and gets scared of the gun if the baby tries to pull the trigger then the next thing you know the baby dies because it shot itself.

Why would anybody give a gun to a baby? Seriously! I like teaching guns and gun safety young, but not that young.

hes mocking you and your beliefs and the fact that you responded believing this was serious says something about the "pro gun" beliefs in general which really don't make sense. that being "the answer to stopping gun violence is creating more gun violence!"

It was fake? Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. Jeez, you don't think I would be that dense! I know it was a joke. You actually believing it was serious! Man. And you accuse me of being dense.

More people owning guns doesn't creat violence. Have you ever noticed how when gun sales go up crime rates go down? And when gun control laws go into effect such as the DC hand gun ban and the Clinton "Assault weapon" ban crime goes up? Look these things up. An armed society is a polite society.

Side: That's preposterous

A baby could not handle a weapon, let alone know what it is.

A machine designed to end a life given at the start of a life? Think about that one.

Absolutely not! Who would do such a thing? Are you trolling?

Side: That's preposterous

Never! First of all, a gun in a baby's hands would be child abuse to the extreme. Secondly, if that gun goes off, the baby dies.
