Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in favor of murder, but let’s face it: Prohibiting murder clearly isn’t working. We still have thousands of murders every year, murderers clog our courts, they clog our prisons because so many states don’t have enough sense to execute them. So why bother? There’s a better way.
Arm everyone. Think about it. How many cops are there? How many adult Americans are there? Wouldn’t it make more sense to use the entire adult population of America to prevent murders? And the population doesn’t cost us taxes!
Who’s going to murder someone if they know retaliation will be immediate from everyone they see?
If someone does commit murder, what would the penalty be? Grab a bunch of your neighbors, find the scum and shoot him. Justice is immediate. No court costs and we’re not stuck with the tab of giving a murderer housing, food, clothing, medical care for life, and even recreation! Why, for “rehabilitation?” His victims don’t get rehabilitation, they’re dead. He shouldn’t be walking around and we all know it.
This applies everywhere. I realize we’re thinking about this approach in schools, but we should really be looking at applying this approach more globally because murders aren’t confined to schools. It would work everywhere. Like, for example, airports. Ron recently ran a clip of Archie Bunker suggesting that the way to end airline hijackings is to issue handguns to every passenger (linked to by Ron’s name). Same idea. Who’s pulling a gun if everyone else has one? Think of all those airport security lines suddenly gone! You can just go board your plane.
And this approach would really help the economy. Americans are big in the firearms manufacturing business and there are retail outlets all over the United States who would make more money and hire more people if every adult in America bought a gun and ammo.
In fact, we can help both the economy and make sure Americans do their civic duty by making it legally obligatory to own a gun. Participating in local law enforcement should be considered a responsibility of citizenship. Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
