"I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools, and — you have to — and on military bases," Trump said, to scattered cheers during a campaign rally on Thursday night. "My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. There's no more gun-free zones."

Wil, David Brooks is an upper-class twit who's trying to imagine what life is like for people like you who grew up poor/middle class. He thinks you're too clueless to use words like "pomodoro," and this is holding you back. Somehow your violent impulses toward women made you not get that you're being clowned on.
American upper-middle-class culture (where the opportunities are) is now laced with cultural signifiers that are completely illegible unless you happen to have grown up in this class.
