    Another School Shooting

    This time close to Seattle...
    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/s...attle-26432772

    Sad. After the shooting at Canada's capital, I bet our lawmakers approve $100 bajillion dollars to improve their safety at our Capital. And yet, won't do one thing to increase the safety of our schools.

    What exactly do you propose they do? Pay to have armed guards in every hallway? You can't defend against crazy, no matter how much money you throw at it.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    There are hundreds of thousands of schools, libraries, and other civic buildings in this country. It is IMPOSSIBLE to protect them all. Even if you outlaw guns today.

    Not sure what the answer is, but making every single school prisonesque isn't an option in my book. That is not what schools should be

    Also sad that someone thinks it's the federal government's responsibility to provide safety measures for a school in the state of washington.

    Exactly. A society that attempted to do so would look something like North Korea.

    That doesnt stop anything. That just records who did it. In which, those guys dont care if they are caught, they just want to kill.

    Problem is with the individuals not with the schools.

    I think it's simply a commentary that legislators do far better at serving themselves - sparing no expense, than they do on their constituents.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    Doing nothing is not an option either. Every shooting isn't going to be stopped but they definitely can be reduced. At my son's school all the doors are locked from the outside and a person must be let in after they call the office. It's not perfect but it does provide some level of protection.

    I'm sure there are many other ideas to help address this problem.
