I am also the parent of two school age students in Missoula. I understand that school violence is a concern in our country and I respect your opinion and efforts to get to the root of this issue. PLEASE consider this...
If a person wants to hurt people and do illegal things nothing will stop them.
I think it could be useful to look at a possibility of another root. What has become of childhood and adolescence in our country? What types of morbid emotional suppression are our children and citizens experiencing that puts them in such desperately destructive situations? Why are so many people suffering from mental health issues and living on nutritionally deficient food and pharmaceuticals? JUST MAYBE... We have created an overly isolating ,intensely lonely and fearful culture. I DON'T THINK NEW LAWS AND REGULATIONS can protect US from this. I am happy that we as a community are talking and looking for solutions regarding this horrific situation in our society.
