Nope, not The Onion…

Here’s former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal making sense on guns and how to prevent school shootings:

O’Neal made the comments in a radio interview with Rita Cosby on Wednesday. More from USA Today:

“…Something has to be done. You hear a lot of people talking about getting these guns off the streets. Only problem with that is there’s 15 million of them out there already on the streets. Another problem is, if you ban them, then you’re going to create an underground market, and the gun collectors are going to become more valuable.

“I think the quick fix now, the government should give law enforcement more money. Give more money, recruit more people, and the guys that are not ready to go in the streets, you put them in front of the schools. You put them in front of the schools, you put them behind the schools, you put them inside the schools.”

Shaq actually knows what he’s talking about as in his spare time, he’s a part-time police officer for the wealthy beachside community of Golden Beach, FL:

Listen to Shaq, liberals.
