Exactly. If schools were required to have somebody who knows how to use a gun and has one available, they could potentially save more students’ lives than they save by knowing CPR or by having a defribrillator at the schools.
No one talks about people on psychotropic drugs for emotional and behavioral problems. That is the common denominator of these shooter/suicides. These shooters have emotional problems and were suppose to control it with meds. Problem is the meds did not work and social stress sets these killers off. Solution is if you have a history of emotional problems that require meds to prevent violent behavior, then you should be institutionalized and not left wandering the streets or living amongst us. This act alone will eliminate most of the random violence, homicides and suicides that headline our news everyday. The NYC subway pusher several weeks ago was a loon, the guy who shot two people at a mall before he shot himself was a loon, and this school shooter I will bet is also a loon.
