Crozier-textbooks.jpg There have been so many lunatic ideas coming out of the mouths of insane people lately that I'm surprised I found something new and exciting. Want to protect your kids at school? Arm them with text book shields: via Right Wing Watch

He seems to think that kids will be able to block an assailant armed with an AK-47 by shielding themselves. Ummm....this isn't TJ Hooker, I'm not trying to rain on his parade, but I think a nut might be able to aim at a few different spots. I'm just saying.

Can you help us out?
