Dan Patrick sees the flurry of school shootings as a symptom of America’s moral rot, not a consequence of having 300 million guns around. Maybe if we prayed more, there would be fewer shootings. Tell that to the good folks at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that got shot up last November. Twenty-six people died for no reason. They were praying. They were God-fearing citizens trying to live good lives.

Dan Patrick thinks that the solution to school shootings is to have fewer doors.

Dan Patrick despises public schools. He has been trying to get voucher legislation passed so that every student can go to a religious school, but the Legislature has not agreed with him.

Just listen to the drivel that comes out of him, and you will wonder if we live on the same planet.

He makes me embarrassed to be a Texan.
