Think about this, Melody: You're too crazy for Texas.

A mom in Iowa, who works in a gun store, has decided to teach a class on how to wear a gun while also wearing a baby.

What could possibly go wrong?

I’ve coslept with my babies, I’ve been wearing my babies, I’ve loved them, and I’ve worn a gun the whole time.

Melody Lauer wants to teach you how to do that. Why would you possibly want to do that?

“The idea for the class came out of hearing about the kid in Idaho who shot his mom recently. That touched me in a very deep way because my daughter was 2 at the time,” Lauer, 30, with kids ages nine months, 3, and 6, tells Yahoo Parenting. “I thought, there’s no reason this should happen. We are adults and can be responsible.”

So she wants to shoot her kid before the kid shoots her?

You know, call me unprepared for child rearing but I think the solution is not the have a stinkin’ gun laying around for your kids to find. The OK Corral idea might work, too. I dunno.
