What is being done about mass shootings in public schools in the USA?

I have seen enough reports and news about shootings in public schools and have seen the protests by students against guns.

The government seems to not get it, but if I were a student in a public school I would be very afraid for my life on a daily basis when I go to school each week day, wondering if today will be the day that I die?

Just say no to guns!

It's not just guns, it's the violent nature of students and the way they are treated by their piers and the faculty staff of the schools.

Guns are a bad thing. Period! Backpacks being worn by students is like carrying anything that will fit, including a loaded firearm. The students in public schools are going to class each and every day in fear of their very lives. So what is being done to make it better for the teachers, the students and the parents of the students, to regain the sense of normalcy in the public school system today?

I had to go online and look for something, anything that would shed some light on this subject.

I am very concerned about what is going on in public schools with GUN VIOLENCE. There must be much malcontent among both students and their parents. BLAMING IT ALL ON GUNS is one thing but when it comes down to basics, hard facts, students are feeling alienated because of social media bullying and pier pressure by bullies in real life AND VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES. None of this helps if added to the mix is the ever increasing availability of automatic weapons and now 3-D printed guns has been added into the mix.

From my own views on this, the answer lies in each of us. Do we want our children to go to class every day of their lives worried that someone might go ballistic and run rampant through the halls?

Security, security, security and STOP SELLING AUTOMATIC WEAPONS to civilians. But what do the students of violent shootings have to say about what needs to be done to put a stop to the mass killings on public school grounds ...

I read an article from a journalist who came from the US with her family to live in the UK. And her young son said he was glad he didn't have to do the drills for hiding from an active shooter! So sad for children to be exposed to that!

It is one of the most important ongoing issues for all Americans. As a side note: I clicked on the link in activities list for profile and was re-routed to the following page that said as follows: Not Found



The requested URL /profile/ was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at www . personapaper . com Port 80

Okay, Maybe it is because it is blocked so others can not access my profile if they are not active on this site. I guess it is a fail safe actually. Just my 2 cents. Maybe it isn't supposed to be linked so therefore it should remain as normal text rather than hypertext as it appears in green colored hyperlink font style.



But I can get to my Profile page by clicking on my username. It has been like this for a pretty long time. Are you aware of this bug? I am talking about this site. I wonder if there is a fix for it. Maybe it is not that important but I had to mention it.

I know about this. It has been there since before I took over.
