Judge Napolitano: Vince Vaughn Has a Good Point
Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Fox Business this morning that Vince Vaughn hit on a good point with his remarks on guns in schools.
In an interview with the UK edition of GQ Magazine, the actor spoke out about the Second Amendment and how he wants all U.S. schools to have firearms to protect students.
"These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenseless human beings. They do not want confrontation," Vaughn said. "In all of our schools, it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."
"You think the politicians that run my country and your country don't have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights," Vaughn said.
"Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won't rid the world of criminality."
Napolitano pointed to Israel, where teachers and staff members are armed.
"You never see the type of invasions there that you see here."
Stuart Varney countered that Israel clearly faces a much different security situation than the average American school.
Napolitano said he realizes that, but pointed out that schools are targeted because the attackers know they will not meet any resistance.
"The slaughter occurs before the police can get there. If there was return fire, the slaughter would be minimized and perhaps avoided," said Napolitano.
Varney asked about the potential risk that comes with having a handgun in a classroom.
Napolitano said the idea would involve a concealed weapon and teachers receiving the proper training.
He said Varney should ask his question to parents who have lost a child in a school shooting.
Varney said he can't imagine wanting his six children or nine grandchildren to attend a school where the teacher has a gun in the classroom.
The judge countered that the other side is accepting a situation where innocent kids are like "fish in a barrel to a monster."
