Shooting the Teacher

From longtime ace blogger Digby, worth quoting in its entirety, see original here.

You cannot make this stuff up:

Arkansas state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson (R), who is leading an effort to give guns to school personnel, accidentally shot a teacher during an "active shooter" drill earlier this year, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.

"The experience gave Hutchinson some pause, but he still supports giving schools the authority to decide how best to secure their campuses."
Luckily the gun that shot the teacher was only loaded with rubber bullets so no harm no foul. (If we can only get all the armed lunatics to use them too we can arm everybody and have shoot-out all day long with no consequences!) Just because you've proved in living color that flying bullets from the "good guys" can harm innocent people exactly as flying bullets from the "bad guys" do, doesn't mean that you should change your opinion about everybody and their grandmother packing heat at all times. Just take a pause, stick your fingers in your ears and sing lalalalalala!

Update:  Oh dear God.  I've just been informed that Jeremy Hutchinson is the nephew of Asa Hutchinson, the former Impeachment manager, DEA chief, Head of Birder enforcement and ... current leader of the NRA's "arm the teachers" task force.
