  • 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.

  • Protecting our children in-a-minute
  • Schools

  • . . . to respond to violence with violence?Certain images and/or photos on this page are the copyrighted property of 123RF Limited, its Contributors or Licensed Partners and are being used with permission under license.These images and/or photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission from 123RF Limited.
  • Here is a better idea.Certain images and/or photos on this page are the copyrighted property of 123RF Limited, its Contributors or Licensed Partners and are being used with permission under license.These images and/or photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission from 123RF Limited.
  • First: place protective shielding in every room . . . Like SWAT shielding. . . . Or tactical blankets.Additional examples can be found at sites like http://www.policeone.com/
  • These could be used to shield students, and to move in on a shooter.Additional examples can be found at sites like http://www.policeone.com/
  • Second: make shooters more vulnerable.Certain images and/or photos on this page are the copyrighted property of 123RF Limited, its Contributors or Licensed Partners and are being used with permission under license.These images and/or photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission from 123RF Limited.
  • How?Shooters are most vulnerable when RE-LOADING!
  • . . . Which Congress is now debating.. . . Limiting gun clips to ten rounds.
  • Ten shoots beforeRE-LOADING!
  • Ten students or teachers before RE-LOADING!
  • This is a beginning But REALLY!Would that be legal if shooters were hunting deer?
  • IF shooters are more vulnerable When reloading.Certain images and/or photos on this page are the copyrighted property of 123RF Limited, its Contributors or Licensed Partners and are being used with permission under license.These images and/or photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission from 123RF Limited.
  • Congress must force them to reload more often and more slowly.
  • Ideally .. give studentsthe same chance we give deer.One trigger – one shot – reload.
  • Realistically . . . Congress . . .. . . to limit gun clips to ten rounds might be a good beginning.
  • Ten rounds at a squeeze is better than twenty . . . but the problem is . . . CLIPS allow the shooter to RE-LOAD ten more bulletsas QUICKLY as it takes to load one bullet.
  • CLIPS make shooters LESS VULNERABLE.Certain images and/or photos on this page are the copyrighted property of 123RF Limited, its Contributors or Licensed Partners and are being used with permission under license.These images and/or photos may not be copied or downloaded without permission from 123RF Limited.
  • Please, Congress . . . ban rifles with clips.Begin with rifles, then debate handguns.
  • This still leaves rifles that hold multiple bullets. Shooters can still shoot ten or more students before reloading . . .
  • BUT! Reloading these guns happens one bullet at a time,making shooters MORE VULNERABLE When RELOADING.
  • Conclusion• Place shielding in every classroom. • Teachers can protect students. • Teachers can subdue shooters using it.• Ban rifles using clips. • Slow down reloading. • Make shooter vulnerable. • More time to subdue shooter.• Teach students to deal with violence without resorting to violence.
  • Afterward:These brief comments do not raise all the issuesor answer all the questions .. they are not meantto end the debate but to further it.I believe there are alternatives to armingteachers or having armed guards roaming theschool halls. More guns or more violence arenot the answer to violence .. history teaches this.Please think creatively and suggest alternatives.
