    When a Federali judge got assassinated in a San Antonio a few years back, the government responded swiftly with metal detectors, bag searches, police presence and serious security systems that are monitored constantly.

    We havent had a judge shot since and no one had to cause a Constitutional crisis by trying to disarm American citizens.

    So why havent we taken serious measures to protect our children?

    Well, it seems to me to involve several factors:

    1. Gun Grabbing fascists use every school shooting as an opportunity to push their anit-gun agenda. This emotional hysteria is counter-productive by being a huge distraction to taking concrete steps that might actually work.

    2. the media exploits school shootings for entertainment ratings. CNN doesnt give a fig about how many kids die in gun fire, they just want to improve their pathetic ratings so they can charge more for air time. They have no interest in pushing for real solutions that will protect our kids.

    3. Despite the effectiveness of the NRA in opposing anti-gun laws, Big Pharma and teachers unions do not want anyone digging into the causes of school shootings and placing independent authorities in our schools alongside teachers.

    Meantime, our kids are in defenseless buildings where they are taught how to run and hide if a deranged madman shows up with a gun.

    Don't you realize that taking the guns away from people who will never commit crimes with them does more to stop school shootings than locking doors

    You could virtually eliminate school shootings with metal detectors and solid classroom doors that cant be opened from the outside without a key. If someone rushes into the school with guns, they wouldnt be able to get into the classrooms.

    I know the teachers unions hatre any discussion of providing effective security for schools, like bag searches and one way doors. These teachers are as bad as their students iin so many ways, smoking dope in the teachers lounge, or hiding out back, etc.

    They dont want THEIR OWN privacy invaded, their own bags searched going into school.

    They also know that these school shootings happen less often than blue moons, so they dont want to tighten security in any meaningful way.

    Not one bit.
