Ian O'Doherty: Well, ain't that just charming

Ah, the opportunists and bandwagon jumpers are out in force after the tragic Connecticut school massacre, aren't they?

The gun-control lobby see this as an opportunity to bring in a ban on firearms (ain't gonna happen) while the NRA and their cohorts are saying that if everyone was armed then a teacher could have shot Adam Lanza before he killed all the kids.

That's an idea that makes sense for about . . . oh, two seconds until you contemplate the vista of every American packing heat. The results, I imagine, would not be pretty.
