    1) The media shouldn't be aggrandizing 24hrs a day - this is like an advertisement for all other mentally disturbed individuals on how you can go out in a blaze of glory where people will be talking about them for years to come.
    2) Better secured doorways in schools. It wouldn't cost much at all to fortify exterior doors with bars that are easily opened from the inside only. This alone would have stopped this from happening. Period.

    you would have to go beyond just the doors. I think installing shatter proof windows would also help.

    No gubmint of any kind is going to stop a sick twist from senseless murder.

    As in the days of Noah, violence filled the earth.

    assign soldiers to each school, bring them home from overseas, and/or hire unemployed veterans to guard schools.
