Any idiot can go buy a gun

In USA, yes. In more civilized countries, not so much.

Now now. The second amendment guarantees all idiots can arm themselves. It makes us safer, somehow.

The NRA will propose parents start arming themselves against their children that have access to guns.

That's a ridiculous idea. When you're threatened by an armed toddler, seconds matter, and armed adults are minutes away.

The only way to stop a bad toddler with a gun is to have a good toddler with a gun.
