First of all let me offer my prayers to all the families affected by this horrible tragedy, for our country, and for our leaders who have to enact a solution. Im a Veteran and the father of 3 school aged children. Like most Vets I know somthing about security. I would like to see a bill introduced that would model the Air Marshall program for our schools. It would consist of a select, squad sized group of background checked, psychologically tested, trained and armed school officials, to...

Im a Veteran and the father of 3 school aged children. Like most Vets I know somthing about security. I would like to see a bill introduced that would model the Air Marshall program for our schools. It would consist of a select, squad sized group of background checked, psychologically tested, trained and armed school officials, to serve in secret to the public allowing them not to be targeted. Our citizens are our countries greatest resource dating back to the american revolution. Now is a time to act and protect our children and our inalienable constitutional rights. It can be done. Lets get it done America!

I used to live in the UK, I was Born and Bred there. But because the Country has gone to Pot, I left, and now live in the Philippines, the People here are very Family Orientated and children are very safe, even so every School has armed Security Guards, if you want your Children to be safe, tell the Authorities what you want, not what they want, their your Children, if the School is not Protected, keep your Children at home until they do something about security.

Blanka, you are very good writer. I would like to see you expand your ideas. You ended your story too soon. Be expansive because you have a lot to say and you only covered the "rape" on women ( which I totally ahree with).

Be strong

Had any single person been carrying at the time of any shooting in the last 20 years I believe their response on afresh would have save more lives than not. The average response time for emergency, police, or any form of aid is more than 5 minutes. That time is unacceptable. Alot can happen in 5 short minutes. It is a shame there have been so many domestic terror attacks in the last 10-15 years. The mental health services are not comprehensive enough in our country, nor are the education on...

Had any single person been carrying at the time of any shooting in the last 20 years I believe their response on afresh would have save more lives than not. The average response time for emergency, police, or any form of aid is more than 5 minutes. That time is unacceptable. Alot can happen in 5 short minutes. It is a shame there have been so many domestic terror attacks in the last 10-15 years. The mental health services are not comprehensive enough in our country, nor are the education on what our rights entitle us as Americans to be allowed to do. I believe our country has lost sight of the foundations we were created upon. We need to return to our roots. Become what we were meant to be. Truly free and be allowed to pursue our own dreams and ambitions. Thus leading ourselves and our lives to a happy fruition. Thank you for speaking in an educated manor and continue the process of your recovery from this illness we have both fought and continue to fight

powerless against the pain they endured while in school and no one, not the principal, the school psychologist, the teachers or the kids stood up for them, sounding familiar? With the current guns laws, a person like this grows up to commit crimes like we are seeing in our communites now on a monthly basis. If we do not get this bullying under control, as a nation, I believe we can expect to see more of the same that we as a nation witnessed this past Friday. It is our...

powerless against the pain they endured while in school and no one, not the principal, the school psychologist, the teachers or the kids stood up for them, sounding familiar? With the current guns laws, a person like this grows up to commit crimes like we are seeing in our communites now on a monthly basis. If we do not get this bullying under control, as a nation, I believe we can expect to see more of the same that we as a nation witnessed this past Friday. It is our responsibily as a nation to delve into the why's - why is this happening before it is too late.
We need stronger gun laws and community efforts to help do away with bullying in our school systems which would entail a mass education strategy to be rolled out via the Dept of Education - but we must begin - by asking ourselves as a nation How many ? How long? Waiting until the next 22-26yr old smart, friendless, bullied in school young man commits another mass murder just isn't good enough.

HI Blanka~ I think that is not a matter alone of building stronger community awareness or higher fortresses around our playgrounds and schools but more an issue of "let's figure out what is at the core root" of these mass shooters amidst us. They all have similar resumes; 22-26yrs old, bright, very bright, not well liked in school, few friends and I believe, if any of them were alive and we could talk to them, we would learn that they had all been bullyied throughout thier public school life. These are all young men who felt
