Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker stuck his foot in his mouth big time by saying that arming public school officials in response to the Newtown massacre should be "part of the discussion".

That's right, folks...Walker wants to arm the very same people that his allies have labeled as "union thugs" ever since the anti-Walker protests in Madison last year.

Walker has bought into the NRA's meme that "guns don't kill people" and that everything but guns is to blame for mass shootings, and that's because the NRA has long backed Walker.

Indeed, I have publicly asked Walker to return the Harlon B. Carter Legislative Achievement Award to the NRA. The NRA gave Walker that award for signing Wisconsin's concealed carry and castle doctrine laws.

Scott Walker showed his true colors by even considering arming school teachers.
