Seriously.

Idaho has its moments but this one could make even the NRA's Wayne LaPierre seem like a moderate. Amongst several pieces of gun legislation being considered... Well, I let the Idaho Statesman spell it out for you.

The other would strongly encourage school districts to allow teachers and other employees to be armed - or else face legal liabilities for creating gun-free zones, should a tragedy occur.

"I think they're liable now," Boyle said, while conceding she's "not sure if that's going to get consensus this year."

The holdup is that some GOP caucus members would prefer not to tackle the issue at all, while others want to move aggressively to make sure teachers have the firepower to stop an intruder like the one who killed 26 people in Newtown, Conn., she said.

Yup. You read that right. If you don't arm yourself and kids get killed it's your fault and you will be sued and prosecuted for it. Arm yourself or else.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
