  1. The perfect right wing solution: hey, let’s not ban assault rifles, let’s put our children in body armor. Just think of the sales potential in this whole new industry. I’ll bet Wall St. is just chomping at the bit on this one. Then think what an effect the daily threat of getting murdered in school will have on our youth. The kids are pissed off and are only going to get more angry as the carnage continues. Their angst will be directed toward our bungled political system that has allowed these things to happen. Hopefully this will bring about the necessary changes that the current group of so called adults can’t seem to manage.
