We’ve spent the past two days hearing from callers about the most recent mass shooting tragedy.
About half of our callers said something needs to be done with…I don’t want to be controversial or make anyone feel that their 2nd Amendment rights are under attack, so I’ll just say…it rhymes with “Mun Montrol”.

The OTHER half of our responses had non-rhymes-with-mun-montrol ideas.
Some of these included:
ARMING TEACHERS WITH GUNS
One of our callers, an El Paso teacher, wondered how parents would trust teachers to carry guns when “they don’t even trust us to pick which books their kids can read”.
ARMING TEACHERS WITH BEAR SPRAY
“Better than nothing”, opined this caller. He also pointed out that when they used bear spray in one of the Jackass movies, “it looked like an effective deterrent”. Well, sir, the 2nd Amendment specifies the “right to bear arms”. It doesn’t say anything about “the right to bear spray”.
SCHOOLS HAVE TOO MANY DOORS
This suggestion was also echoed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz. I would respond to this argument by saying simply, “If we outlaw doors, only outlaws will have doors”.

MORE SPENDING ON MENTAL HEALTH
Since this was one of Greg Abbott’s suggestions maybe we could start by reinstating the $211 million he cut from mental health programs in Texas last month.
TRAINING SCHOOL KIDS TO TREAT BULLET WOUNDS
Hey, I guess if we expect our schools to be war-zones we should expect some of the kids to be battle-field surgeons.
I really do believe that a problem this big is going to need MULTIPLE solutions. Let’s hear ALL the ideas, even the kooky-sounding ones. Then, maybe, at some point, we can talk about that thing that rhymes with “mun montrol”.
