The teachers should be armed. They could have taken the guy out before he killed anyone. There should also be armed guards in schools in case a teacher goes nuts and kills a student. And just in case one of the guards snaps and goes on a spree they should probably allow each student to bring a gun to school... you know, just in case.
I really hope that out of this tragedy that there's a discussion on gun control and mental health in this country.
Although I am someone who supports tighter regulations on guns, let's not kid ourselves in to thinking that simply taking away guns will solve the issue. If you have problems, chances are you will find other ways to inflict harm. We need to look at what ultimately causes stuff like this to happen and as a society try to change it.
I definitely don't believe that taking away guns will solve the issue. Our laws are very poor on gun control. I don't know how many reports I've seen on where anyone can get a gun. I also added mental health because it is a very overlooked issue that definitely has a hand in many tragedies.
Holy fucking shit. I've gotten chills down my spine watching the news. 18 children. 9 adults.
There needs to be armed guards in all "no gun" zones. If citizens can't protect themselves at all times, then places need to ensure their protection.
Yes, a lack of guns is the problem...
How many school shootings has there been in the UK recently? I can't think of a single one, the only mass shooting i can think of in the UK was some farmer that went around with a hunting rifle or shotgun and killed a few people.
The argument that people need guns to protect themselves and there should be armed guards in schools is ridiculous, guns are the problem not the answer thats why these type of shootings seem to happen more in the US than anywhere else.
Stop being so stubborn and look at how other countries deal with this because they're doing a whole lot better.
