Response to discntnt_irny_srcsm (Reply #88)

89. I did have a great holiday--thanks

I would say that schools are safe. I know they are a safe space and where kids can get away from fucked up parents, etc.

They are not designed as bunkers-they shouldn't be. I don't want my small school to employ metal detectors or strip-searches(hyperbole).

Schools are truly a safe place for students. Now, if someone is trying to find, as you say, a soft target, any place where there are many people in a given place there is surely an opportunity. We are not a bunker, nor should we be. Perfect safety in not possible within our system. I would not want to have that be the case.

School is a safe place, but we train staff and kids for appropriate action for a time when when it isn't.

We do have security cameras and the entrances are controlled by staff. This is not to say someone could not get in with a little cooperation from a classmate.

We have a good plan-as good as can be for a situation and without constantly drilling students to the point of terrifying them.

They take this intruder plan seriously-more than the monthly fire drill.

I must say that your animal-rights analogy is a bit weak. It looks like you want to slowly acclimatize the American public into just not wanting to have all these guns. Like we just need to be less gun-centric and gun-owning and then we can solve the problem. You may not have meant that, but I read it that way. We should pause to remember-it IS the gun nutters that have the guns and are vocal to the point where the rational discussion is made impossible-at least on that side.



I also don't see any real response regarding the adults doing anything.

I will ask you directly--do you support strict restrictions on gun-ownership, who gets access to guns, safe gun storage rules, harsh penalties for those that allow access(family) to those guns, magazine restrictions and harsh penalties, gun-registration, proof of safety, etc. that could actually serve to improve safety? There have been a couple of times lately where kids had free access to family guns.

I feel like we don't take these things seriously.

I will say again--any person that does not see access as a problem can not be a reasonable partner in preventing gun violence. I am not asking for your multifaceted plan that would solve this whole problem-just an idea where you think the limits are. I'll probably disagree but it's worth the effort, I think.
