EDITOR:

With the recent debate in the United Stated over arming the teachers in the schools as a safety measure, it reminded me of Archie Bunker. The show, All in The Family was in the 70s, at a time when the news of the day highlighted another plane hijacked to Cuba.

Archie Bunker’s idea to stop hijacking was to just pass out guns to all the passengers as they boarded the plane and take them back when they got off at the destination. He theory was: Who would pull a gun to hijack the plane when everyone else had a gun.

It almost made sense but it was tongue in cheek, and Archie’s logic.
