G. Limoges: Home of the free?


I’m sure I was not the only one offended this week when the idea that teachers and security guards should carry guns in our schools was proposed by a gun enthusiast.

The thought of a gun holstered on a teacher every day as he or she teaches history, science or math to our impressionable youth is appalling. Can our freedom only be assured by encouraging society to be armed?

I’m sure some think that way. Many don’t. Those who advocate more weaponry might best serve us (America, home of the free) if their enthusiasm was focused on helping to create a peaceful, tolerant and cooperative atmosphere in our schools rather than acceptance of violence and a world where the most bullets rule.
