Their should be federal background checks and a database compiled on all teachers and school administrators. This would have prevented most of the mass shootings.
are you kidding?

Arkansas law requires background both state and federal on all teachers and administrators. I do not understand how that would affect the school shootings. Teachers are not doing the shootin'.

Background checks won't prevent shootings or pedophiles from getting jobs. If they've never been convicted of something, there's no proof that they are going to do something.

Where is the parent accountability? Teachers have "education" to teach. People don't want us teaching morals, values, religion- so why gun safety? It takes a village to raise a child and that includes parents. Besides, they have them a lot longer than the teachers do. And they are heavily influenced by what the parents teach them. I have children who are grown. It was my responsibility to teach them to get along in society, morals, values and religion. Oh yeah- gun safety and to values other peoples lives. Happy to report, they have become responsible adults and are good parents themselves. Teachers can't raise other peoples children. They can only hope to make a positive influence in some way. But, you know- can't mention God or the Bible.

Those parents are either in jail or just dont care. Maybe they need to be forced to care.Take their welfare and use it to pay for damages.

It is important to perform a proper background check on adults who will be working with children.
However only 4% of Child Sexual Abusers have a criminal record that will show up on a criminal background check, The Diana Screen® identifies an estimated 70% of the men and women who should not be placed into positions of trust with children because they present a sexual risk: either because they have already sexually abused a child or they have a very weak understanding of the strict sexual boundaries required between adults and children.

The Diana Screen® does not compete with criminal background checks. Rather, it is intended to complement an organization`s current Abuse Risk Management plan. Thus, it is recommended that organizations that begin use of The Diana Screen® continue use of criminal background checks.

What people need to understand is there is not one thing that could have been done to prevent that shooting. Believe it or not there are still things that take place in this world that we as humans have no control over. Yes it was committed by a human with a gun but I am certain that if anyone knew what was going to happen and had means to stop it they would have. It is a tragedy plain and simple. We don't need anymore new laws to keep this from happening again. What we need is morals, people to watch out for other people just because its the right thing to do, and prayer.

Death is a fact of life, someone who wants to injure or kill will always find a way to do it. Twenty children died, let's limit or eliminate guns. Fine, they will take out a school bus with a bomb or vehicle, sixty plus kids.
Put armed security guards in schools,fine, today's modern firearms are accurate up to a half a mile or more just get up on the roof of a house in the area and take a few out at a football game or pep rally. By the time it is discovered what is happening, and the ensuing confusion
that follows twenty kills would seem small. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel, and with darkness as an ally you could slip away unnoticed.
In essence we are responsible for our own safety. It will never be accomplished with legislation, it is only possible with observation and education.
