On the need to arm bears

Which is more pressing than ever, you will agree after reading this.

A middle school teacher suffered some bruising and a big scratch on his back after he struck a bear while riding his bicycle to school.

Jim Litz said he was traveling about 25 mph Monday morning when he came upon a rise and spotted a black bear about 10 feet in front of him. He didn't have time to stop and T-boned the bruin.
I bet you that if, instead of a bear, the teacher had T-boned one of his pupils, the article would have been much less sympathetic to him.
The bear rolled over Litz's head, cracking his helmet, and scratched his back before scampering up a hill above the road.
Give them guns, I say.
