Idaho college students can now carry guns on campus

Here's detail on the new law:

Some profs are making fun of it:

But let's get serious for a minute and consider the options.

1.  Disarming America.  Are you kidding?

2.  Boxing up all the nuts.  Are you insane?

3.  Successfully profiling every potential shooter and getting him off the streets before he acts.  Good luck with that one.

Yes, we should work hard at all three.  But at the end of the day, the Israeli approach may still be the best.  In Israel it's the fanatics that cause most of the harm.  In America, while we have some of those (e.g., the Boston Marathon bombers and the Fort Hood shooter), our shooters are mostly random actors… egocentric sad sacks taking out their disappointments on the rest of us.

No matter… the solution is the same.
