  • JoshuaBrees Joshua Brees A while back there was a tragic shooting where the victims had simply decided to see the same movie. The news cycles at that time seemed to say that it was premature to discuss gun control at that time. In stead, in a swift move the theaters banned masks. Since anyone showing up at a school in a Joker mask would already raise an alarm, can we please talk about gun control now? Giving people the same rights and priveledges as a deer would be a great start. Limiting the size of a clip to 10 shots seems like it might be too little too late.

    Adding the defensive measures to the classrooms in a great idea. The shielding and blankets would be helpful and maybe there are ways of preventing people from simply entering classrooms. I know everything costs money and it may be hard for some people to justify the expense of offering every classroom and every school the benefit of such safety precautions. I just keep thinking of the TSA and the preventive measure installed after an earth shaking tragedy and it seems like the cost of our safety in the air was never questioned. Our children deserve the same consideration, especially in the one place where we need them to feel safe.
