You don't need a permit for a baseball bat. You can openly carry a baseball bat. A baseball bat can already be found in most every school in the country. A stray swing will not kill an innocent bystander 10 yards past your intended target. If I was face to face with an armed lunatic and knew there was not much of a chance I was gonna walt away, I'd want a swinging chance of at least dazing the SOB before he could put me down. I think we should give every teacher in America a baseball bat. In Sandy Hook a principal and psychiatrist gave everything they had to stop this guy bare handed. Their my heroes. Maybe a louisville slugger could have turned the tide.
