It never ceases to amaze me how easily people are duped into thinking that symbolic, feel-good, addle-brained programs like this one will have an impact on gun violence. I also think that elementary school aged children are too young to understand the symbolism. But the program sure works to enable the Attorney General Patrick Lynch to cliam he is doing something about the problem!
“We hope it makes a difference,’’ Baum said.
Take a few minutes to read the comments at the end of the article. Boston Globe readers think the program is pretty stupid as well. Why not do something constructive that might actually help children be safe, like hold an Eddie Eagle Safety Program in the school.
