Is you a professional? (NOT an April Fools joke)
Not an April Fools joke, yes, though that may be hard to believe.

By now you may have heard about the DEA agent caught on tape shooting himself in the foot live in a classroom full of fourth graders. I first saw a clip from that video on Comcast news, but this link I'm enclosing here is the complete and even MORE embarrassing video showing other adults in the room unwilling to hand the guy other guns despite his repeated requests.

I think I know how I thought when I was in fourth grade and I'm pretty sure that my first thought wouldn't have been 'Guns are bad', but rather, 'the DEA must be made up of some pretty stupid people if they sent up this flunky to teach gun safety.'

URLs behind cut.
