An apology to the dittos

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

 

 Recently, I found myself in the uncomfortable position of having to admit that I’m wrong.  I was accused of misrepresenting the NRA and yes, I did exactly that.

 I erroneously accused Wacky Wayne of being, well, wacky.  That he’s an idiot and didn’t know what he was saying.  I misrepresented the NRA as an organization of fools who don’t know shootola from shinola.

 I was wrong.  The NRA knows exactly what it’s doing.  They’re selling a product and they’re really good at it.

 And I have to thank my new best friend, Skippy, for setting me straight.  I now see the infinite wisdom of arming teachers.  

The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

 And the best thing to stop a bad guy with a big gun is a good guy with a bigger gun.  

 How big of a gun, you ask?  These “shoot first and think never” space cadets want me to have a nuclear weapon in my classroom.

 Really?  Well, in a 2003 interview with Mother Jones, a training manager for Protection Technology Los Alamos explained why we need nuclear weapons.  The trainer said, “A nuclear weapon is just a big gun.  That’s all it is.”
