Gun laws and school violence are not the correlation. School violence, parenting, and school enforcement are the issue. We need to stop looking to legislating and look at raising respectful kids.

Man cannot fix school shootings or any shootings. We pass laws, we limit access all to no avail, we took God out of school life. Lets pray and ask God for the answer, bring God back into school. Until then nothing man does will work. Short & to the point. Forgive us Father God for turning our back on You. In Jesus mighty name. Amen!

Quite frankly I don't think any of the choices will help. Tighter gun controll? Anyone who wants a gun badly enough, can get one. Monitor on-line social groups? There are kids that don't / can't use them, or are bright enough not to post their agenda. Have parents & kids communicaye better. Gee, wouldn't it be nice for all parents to give a damn about their kids, to talk with them... but, who lnows what they might say? Sadly, it's not a 'Leave it to Beaver' or 'Father Knows Best' world...

Sadly, it's not a 'Leave it to Beaver' or 'Father Knows Best' world anymore. Stop kids from being Bullies. Good luck with that one too. Kids are going to be kids. Certainly, if a person of authority at a school witnesses an act of bullying, the kid should be repremanded. Metal detectors? You expect the worst from anyone, that's what you'll get. I'm well aware of the fact that teachers are grossly under paid. But I do think what might help, is if all schools could have counselors, before the grief ones are needed. If a teacher, princple, janitor... anyone in the school feels that a kid needs help, then help them! Perhaps if someone cares... if anyone truly notices them & cares enough about them to get them some help with their lives, then perhaps, just perhaps, things will change.

How about the parents and school officals start , why do you have them. Adults could learn alot from kids if they stopped and paid attention to them. Never say you don, t have time--we all need to take the time. ALOT OF PARENTS--and TEACHERS -need to show their kids--better responsibility and they need to be able to correct their kids. Have you noticed since they took prayer out of school--the problems started...Look at how some parents and teachers act around kids.

Its very true- violence is everywhere , but we have to start somewhere-- schools are the second most important group , after family, from where children grow and learn to love the world and believe in people and community life , school is the root from where children develop a sense of self and self consciousness , so we have to more effectively work against bullying and create some strategic ways to curb it , the values learnt by a person from school helps him or her to grow into a caring...

Bullying and its causes and after effects must be effectively explained to children, they need to understand that excluding someone from the community or group of people just for the sheer fun of mocking is not the only sense of fun that they can have with their peers ,, going out -visiting new places, discussing theories, discussing stupidity of soap operas---there is so much to make fun of ,, why make fun of a person to make a wall all around him/her and jail a person.....

Kids at school 'do not develop a sense of self and self consciousness'. This is done by the time they are four or five, before attending school. They learn to care and have empathy during that time, also. Bullying is created by parents attitudes at home toward others, and not teaching their kids to have respect for others. Anything to do with religious beliefs, is also taught in the home, parent to family. The changes in the school about religion, never fazed any of the kids.

For Bible believers out there, the Bible does say, 'pray behind closed door, in the privacy of your home'. When and why they decided to pray in groups, in churches, we will never know. Especially preaching in the streets is a blasphemy to God.

You say religion is our guide in the path to a righteous life. My statement that preaching in the streets is a blasphemy to God, is straight from the Bible. I seem to have been born knowing what is right and wrong. 12 yrs of private church schooling never taught me that. Every church I ever attended, the members didn't live what they preach. As for getting away from 'orthodox' to a modern "kind' of thinking...[what is ortodox? what is a modern way of thinking?] that doesn't sound like you...

Judy Dodge Meives - Before I address your 2 comments regarding "preaching in the street is blasphemy" & "pray behind closed door, in the privacy of your home" let me point out that your comment that you were born knowing what is right and wrong, contradicts your inability to remember anything of your birth, infancy or toddler years. Are you absolutely certain that, as far as you have the ability to remember, you never did anything wrong? That comment is out of touch with reality, but not as...

Judy Dodge Meives - Before I address your 2 comments regarding "preaching in the street is blasphemy" & "pray behind closed door, in the privacy of your home" let me point out that your comment that you were born knowing what is right and wrong, contradicts your inability to remember anything of your birth, infancy or toddler years. Are you absolutely certain that, as far as you have the ability to remember, you never did anything wrong? That comment is out of touch with reality, but not as far-fetched as your attempt to "explain" the definition of blasphemy in the context you squeezed it into. In the New Testament, Jesus addressed the hypocrisy of the Pharisees & Sadducee (religious leaders) who prayed in public places, solely with the intent to get recognition from the people as holy men. That applies to Jesus' teaching of; "do not let your right hand see what your left does." In other words do not be a hypocrite! Most Christians today gather in public, churches and groups to pray in the spirit of fellowship & worship to God and not in the spirit that the religious leaders of old did. Also during Jesus' life here, his ministry was done in public, the miracles He performed were done in public, etc! You probably learned that during your 12 years of private church schooling. Since you mentioned that people will never know why public prayer is done, I hope its give you some clarity. And when you're addressed as "Ma'am" - I highly doubt it was meant to offend you particularly since many folks in the South, 100 years later still address people in this manner as a form of respect.

It is something related with mind.
Let American Government introduce LIGHT CHANNELING for few minutes before the class starts, then see the POSITIVE CHANGES among the Children. Pl see and read the contents of my links i mentioned if you want really a Change in yr country. We experienced in our Schools at Bangalore. So i knew. We can bring PEACE in Schools.
Someone must try in some Schools. Then this effect must be broadcasted all over America. Someone there must do this. Pl see these...

Whatever happened to families, God, and knowing more about our children. Why are they so afraid to talk? Teaching positive thoughts, the word God sends, and caring will bring us back together as familie and what is Good and true in our lives. These tragedies happen more often than we realize. Go back to basics and learn to love, care for and listen to our children and grandchildren. Become true families again.

I think first there should be tighter laws to accessing guns by under age person. Secondly parents should be more involved with there kids to find out if there are any issues that need to be taken care and last but not the least is that children need to be taught family values.

Under age children can't legally buy guns they steal them just like convected criminals The only gun laws we need is tyo put away any one who is a convicted criminals caught with a gun and those who use guns to be put in prison untill they are to old to pull a triger.

Suggest to parents to talk to their kids more and make a point to be more interested in the friends and things that they do ALL the time, not just once in awhile! Have a family prayer time or say a prayer at each meal with the kids joining in. Play fun games wih them and be involved in their games more! Show more interest in things the kids are interested in too! DON'T lose your temper with them and please do not use vulgar words around them!

You can have the happiest home, but when you're in school with a bunch of mean, cruel, unloving children, trust me, it doesn't matter what you say as a parent.. Kids will be influenced more by other children..
