Response to tragedy by the NRA is absurd

The National Rifle Association is right. We just haven't gone far enough. We not only should have teachers armed in schools, we also should arm the bus drivers.

The stewards on the planes should have guns. That's easy because they're already in uniform.

There is no reason you can't carry a gun to court or into our State House in Columbia. Our representatives should be issued weapons so they can shoot people who threaten them. Gov. Nikki Haley should get a Tommy gun (if it's good enough for Dillinger, it's good enough for our governor).

All sportsmen should be able to hunt with AK-47s or Uzis, or fish with hand grenades.
