So what is your solution to this problem? Gun control? Good luck with that. Armed teachers? Yeah I will admit teachers have enough to do besides being the school enforcers. But you are not going to confiscate Americans guns so you better come up with a new plan.
There is no simple solution and anyone who thinks there is, is deluded. It would take a lot of small steps and some of them would be difficult. However, that doesn't mean they shouldn't be taken or even tried. More guns in schools will only result in more shootings in schools (it will only be a matter of time before an armed teacher loses it big-time and massacres a whole class) - anyone who can't see that is just being dumb.
Any suggestion of implementing sensible gun laws is normally met with the usual cries of "2nd Amendment", "My rights" and "Cold, dead hands". That's after anyone who suggest any form of gun control is first called "a gun-grabbing libtard" by the usual suspects.
First up, it needs to be admitted that America has a gun problem. If you can't even admit that there's a problem, then nothing will change. Anyone who can read can see that the statistics don't lie - gun death rates are directly proportional to the ease of availability of guns. More guns doesn't reduce the rate of gun deaths, it has the opposite affect.
There needs to be an honest and open debate about the issue and agreement on some first steps to help address the issues. Want or need a hand-gun to protect yourself and your family? Fine, you have that right under the 2nd amendment. I honestly don't understand why you need it (nobody does in the UK), but fine, no problem (see, no gun grabbing here!)
However, who needs an AR-15 with a bump-stock to do their shopping in Wallmart? Who actually needs
an AR-15 with a bump-stock? Want to let off steam at a gun range with an AR-15 with a bump-stock? Fine, go shoot up some bottles and paper targets, but leave the AR-15 at the range, you don't need it in your house.
Then, start looking at mental health issues and the ease of acquiring guns. As I said, small steps towards a scenario where sensible
guns controls are in place (like waiting 7-10 days before you get your gun). Then start the next discussion...
Will any of this stop gun deaths overnight? Of course not, but nothing will change if you do nothing and more and more innocent kids will be murdered while they're at school.
If kids being gunned to death at school doesn't start alarm bells ringing in your head....
