From our You Can't Make This Stuff Up Dept.: Oops! Arkansas advocate for arming teachers accidentally shot one
Somebody thought it would be a good idea to put a firearm in the hands of this guy?
When NRA psychopath Wayne LaPierre and his gun-totin' fellow loonies floated the idea of arming teachers in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, I don't think I was alone in thinking it was urgent that these people were far too removed from reality to be allowed any voice in any discussion of school safety. Anyone who doesn't grasp the insanity of dumping guns into schools is truly a danger to humanity, in particular to the teachers and children destined to be victims of those guns.
So it's not all that shocking to learn that the gun crazies have been trying to kind of sit on the information that one of their blunder-brained blowhards, in the course of what I guess he thought was field research, actually shot a schoolteacher. Jeez Louise, you can't make this stuff up.
