Gun control? The real issue around school shootings is not gun control.
Let’s be factual, educated and truthful. An AR-15 is not an “assault” rifle or a “weapon of war.” It is a semi-automatic rifle, no different than hundreds of other semi-automatic rifles other than in appearance. Ban the AR-15 and any of millions of other semi-automatic rifles would be used in the next shooting.
Why has there never been a mass shooting in a police station? Silly question, but it gets to the real solution. No one bats an eye at armed men in the security lines of TSA. A security guard in a school might be a sad testimony to our fallen and depraved world, but not a horror.
Trained guards could easily be placed in schools. Teachers could be trained on a voluntary basis and biometrically activated handgun safes could be bolted into classroom walls so as to avoid actually having teachers carry weapons which admittedly could be a safety hazard in the event a student were to attempt to disarm the teacher.
Let’s get off the high horse of gun control and actually address the issue.
