Securing schools as fortresses is prudent, but effective only up to the point that they are not. Gym class. Outdoor soccer field. Football games. Events don't stay within fortress walls.

Does anyone have any reflection on why school shootings? I remember a time when we had none. We used to have Post Office shootings. Now we have none of those to my knowledge. Fashion can be deadly, apparently.

I don't have time to re-write it, but in essence I just posed the question. Does the argument that someone may eventually figure out how to ge a bomb through really justify doing nothing at all in the short term to prevent shootings? You have to consider who is carrying out these attacks. They are lone individuals and not members of sophisticated terrorist organisations with contacts on the 'inside' They are far less likely to be able to get bombs through fortifications.

That's why on this forum you should always copy your message before posting itÖWink

As regards the issue in question, gun situation in the US has gotten completely sh*tty, so donít expect a fast solution. Changing the American mindset towards guns, weakening the sickening passion for all kinds of firearms should become a priority for an improvement on a long-term basis.

Arming teachers is a dumb proposal, as wannabe killers will change their modus operandi and target the off-guard teachers first.
