Being a liberal and gun hater should not be tarred with the same brush.
Chasing the delusion of controlling guns will control killings is absurd.
Back in the 1970s there was a rising gun ownership and rising crime.
We now have rising gun ownership and falling crime. All the guns and gun laws don’t seem to affect the crime rate.
All schools should have more than one well-trained person (teachers/guards) allowed to carry a concealed gun. And it should be posted that armed security are in the school — uniformed armed guards.
If a person (or persons) is set on killing, that’s the first person they would take out. With a person in civilian clothes, they may not know who is security.
As for an AR 15 rifle and spike heeled shoes, baseball bat, rock, knife and a pitchfork — let’s not try and blur the lines. An AR 15 is considered an assault weapon even being a .22 caliber.
