If I were in a beauty pageant (don’t laugh, it’s theoretical) my soul-searching platform would be: World Peace. If that happened to be taken, my second choice would be: No School Shootings.
I’d bat my false eyelashes at the judges and explain my strategy. First of all, I’d declare the whole world a Gun-Free-Zone. That means absolutely no shooting allowed. Period. That would make the Second Amendment irrelevant, which might help my competitors with their World Peace proposal. So it would be a win/win.
