America needs to do the same.

Teachers who are properly trained might and I say might with reservations prevent a problem like that from occurring but they have to be trained very well and practice more often than any other person who would normally be a teacher. The other thing that has to be taken into consideration is who is under that particular teacher. Elementary students? Middle School students? or High School students. One of the best things for the school system to have is just one entry point at the parking lot level and all the other entry points secured and alarmed with constant video camera surveillance inside and outside of the school to include any and all parking lots in a secured area.

The initial costs would be tremendous but over time be mitigated by proper upkeep and training. The cost to have each building covered by personal security would remain high. The schools would have to hire a person to be in charge of all the security and training at that particular school. His or her pay would have to be atleast $25.00 per hour.

The idea that a shooting like that would not happen here because of all the chicanos is wrong. There are several men who were "chicanos" listed as serial killers. The night stalker and the railroad killer (from Mexico) are examples.

Stop being so timid and namby pamby. If a teacher can't handle a weapon, that's their choice but I suggest that the principal keep a box of firearms in the office and just pass them out at the beginning of the day and collect them before everyone goes home. That way each teacher can shoot to kill if there is an intruder.

Go back and check how many of the principals in our elementary schools here are men as opposed to females in their fifties and sixties. You will find that the men out number the women in the high school or middle school principals. IT used to be way different in the mid fifties to mid seventies. Men ruled the roost. Now it is very different.

I knew you were racist but I didn't realize you were sexist also until I read this. Women can handle guns as well as men. I personally know a couple who would shoot your balls off at 50 paces. That would save you the trouble of a vasectomy.

I think any one who believes they are better than someone becuase of there own prefrences and beliefs is not right. If I were president this would be a communist country everyone would have the same things and your work would be based on your ability to do so. Your no better than any one else on this earth and people should be treated equally regardless of there choices. I don't think badly of you I just pity you I hope at some pont in your life you find peace and love in your heart
