I completely agree with the above poster. Ridiculous gun regulation is NOT going to make this country any safer. What it will do is rob our citizens of the ability to protect themselves, their families, and other innocents around them. NO law is going to prevent someone with the intent to harm others from doing so. If they can't get a gun legally they will find it illegally. If they can't get a gun then they will resort to other heinous options like IEDs.
Police and Schools are incredibly underfunded. The response to a threat with our current system is slow and dysfunctional. Schools should be able to respond immediately to a threat rather than just hoping to heaven that the shooter won't come into their classroom while they wait for law enforcement to arrive and stake out the area. Why aren't we focusing on actually putting funding and security policies in place that will ACTUALLY PROTECT our children vs. bickering for months about a policy that will not prevent crimes like this from happening again.
The world is full of both very good and very bad people. We need to accept the later and take REAL and applicable precautions so that if any future attack does occur (which it will sadly) that we will be ready.
