  1. The sickest part of this cover is that it shows: if all the children had guns there is less likely to be a massacre. I know many don’t want to hear that but let’s be realistic. Guns are never going anywhere. Citizens and criminals alike will never part with there weapons willingly.I will stop now before I rant.

  2. That is one hell of a sweeping observation.

    Based on adolescent psychology and case studies involved with children and any dangerous devices, your observation is demonstrably inaccurate.

    I’m not sure how an illustration backs the idea that peace is applicable to school campuses since no one in the image is killing one another.
