Yep I mean this part of your answer.
Do the US states all get their own constitution?

Yes, which makes things interesting because Louisiana's legal code operates on a different set of assumptions than all the others. All the rest are based in English Common Law, but Louisiana was adapted from the Napoleonic Code. In researching my answers, I discovered that Nebraska has a unicameral legislature and is supposedly non-partisan.

Just a sad state of affairs. Going to get worse before it gets better.
I have to throw in a comment. That's just complete nonsense. Trump's brand has already made him a fortune, there was no need to improve it.

I don't remember the exact year but, during one of the
White House Correspondents' Association Dinners, where they all "roast" each other
, Obama really went after Trump, who was in attendance, and Trump was not happy about it. Trump decided that night to run for President...as much as anything to show them just how big of a bigshot he is. That's why Trump ran for President. And if you think he didn't run to win, you are mistaken.

He may not have much of a brand by the end of his term.

Is Trump for real? Now he’s advocating having armed teachers in schools saying that’ they would have shot the hell out of that gunman’ this just goes to prove that he is not fit to be in the Oval Office. Most American policemen that are killed are shot with their own guns, all that would happen is that you are giving the assailant more firepower. How many more casualties would this create as people were caught in the crossfire. Get rid of him now!!

The ideas of "The Toupee" !!!

How does it will be equipped: an AR-15 in the classroom cabinet ?

Or a small machine-pistol for the sweet little French teacher, she can hide in her hand-bag ?

What possibilities (equipment) there are -first of all- in the Bio-, Physics- or Chemistry-Hall, I will leave at the moment to your own fantasy. :LOL:

And I bet (!):

next we hear from "Gun Land" of a teacher, who's running amok and shoot just with that gun his- and several other students down before he could be stopped.

I am afraid that as regards school shootings America has made her bed and has no choice except to lie in it, This is the extremely predictable consequence of tolerating the 2nd Amendment as presently written and tolerating the NRA, whose goals and philosophy are incompatible with civil peace. Presumably this situation goes on because most American citizens approve of it?

It doesn't matter what the average "American citizen" approves of, it's all about money and power - both of the which the NRA has a fuckin' truckload of.

The NRA are heavily funded by Colt and Smith and Wesson: about 28% of their approximately $400m revenue comes from the arms industry. But of course about 50% of this revenue is from membership fees, so I think you would have to say that it exists because very many American people support it and support what it stands for. I think what it stands for is evil and sick, but my opinion does not matter because I do not live there.
