The Weekend Desk Report

May all of the coal in your stocking be clean.

Market Update
Despite a spirited run by Apocalyptic Nihilists, Recorded Time didn't end on Friday. It just felt like it to some people.

Wild Game
After a week of contemplation some may have misinterpreted as abject cowardice, the NRA's Wayne LaPierre unveiled the organization's "meaningful contribution" to the gun control debate: an audacious plan to put armed guards in every school in America. Which, let's face it, would make Rahm Emanuel's next showdown with the teacher's union even more awkward and uncomfortable.

Reindeer Game
Before you go claiming the NRA's strategy is completely infeasible, what with the national registry of weirdos and the looming economic meltdown, consider the timing of this proposal. We're about to see proof, yet again, that the necessary distribution channels and background checks are already in place.

Game Attempt
For the record, LaPierre's speech did contain one fundamental error. It turns out you can stop a bad guy with a gun just by holding up a large pink sign.
