Megan McArdle writes the stupidest thing in response to the Connecticut school massacre

Megan McArdle at The Daily Beast says that to prevent another schoolhouse massacre, kids should rush the attacker:

I'd also like us to encourage people to gang rush shooters, rather than following their instincts to hide; if we drilled it into young people that the correct thing to do is for everyone to instantly run at the guy with the gun, these sorts of mass shootings would be less deadly, because even a guy with a very powerful weapon can be brought down by 8-12 unarmed bodies piling on him at once.

Apparently she was serious.

Not that I would wish that sort of thing on anyone, but the next time it happens, let's all turn to Ms. McArdle and tell her, "You first."
