    there are too many people here steeped in movie fantasies of the powerful guy with the weapons who protects a whole town from a posse of bad guys. 'Morons with delusions of grandeur" is what I think of when I read a post suggesting how easy and sensible it would be to turn schools into fortresses guarded by people with deadly weapons.

    I also get the sense from some of the posts responding to the frothy-mouthed gun nuts that some on the left have orgasms over the thought of insurrection and violence. I know my sister and her friends back in their SDS days 40 years ago did. There's a certain romance to the rugged individuals taking to the hills and surviving on their wits against the big, bad government, and I think some here have been infected with it.

    Something about the issue of guns makes some Americans lose their power to think rationally. And it's not just far right extremists who sound like they kiss their guns goodnight.

    Jon Husted is a dick.
