    Before I paste this blog Type in School Shootings 2017-2018

    Do you see a pattern?

    From CNN.com By Darran Simon


    "The video games issue, we have got to address in this country. Based on all the research we have done, 97%, according to psychologists and psychiatrists ... of teenagers view video games, and 85% of those video games are violent. ... And what are these games showing you how to do? Kill people. ... The vast majority [of psychologists and psychiatrists] will tell you it leads them to become numb to violence, to have less empathy to their victims and be more aggressive. Does that impact everyone who views them? No, but it obviously is part of the problem."

    Removing religion from schools
    "We have devalued life in this country. We threw God out of school."
    Abortions and 'broken' families
    "We have 50 million abortions. We have families that are broken apart, no fathers at home. We have incredible heinous violence as a [video] game, two hours a day in front of their eyes. And we stand here and we wonder why this happens to certain students."
    Irresponsible gun owners
    "I'm a gun owner. Many of you are gun owners. We have a responsibility to be sure our guns are safe at home. That's where gun control starts, at home. ... Your guns ought to be safe at home."
    Read about Lt. Gov Dan Patrick's comments on the Sunday talk shows
    Too many entrances to schools
    Speaking Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Patrick repeated earlier arguments about eliminating some school entrances: "We need to get down to one or two entrances into our schools." He added: "You have the necessary exits for fire, of course, but we have to funnel our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them."
    Unarmed teachers
    Patrick said Texas law allows teachers to carry guns but that decision is made on the local level.
    "We have to arm our teachers. ... If another person has a gun, the best way to stop that person is with another person with a gun. But an even better way is four people with a gun to stop that person."
    "I said this morning on an interview: 'This is not about guns.' ... This is about us, as a culture and a nation. Who are we?"

    CNN's Eli Watkins and AnneClaire Stapleton contributed to this report.

    Ban all violent video games, movies, and Chris Benoit content.
    All they teach is nothing but violence.

    Honestly, more kids have probably died from imitating wrestling moves, than violent video games.

    Why is Abortion listed as cause of gun violence?

    that's just fucking stupid, what if there's a fire, an earthquake or another emergency? also what if the shooter or shooters manage to get inside the school and decide to wait near those entrances to maximize the casualties? now they're talking about turning public schools into fortresses, these guys are really running out of ideas.

    I think they're trying to present it as an example of "liberal immorality" that's pervading our culture and affecting our kids... Somehow...

    Those would be turned into emergency exits, you can go out but you can't get back in, the doors would be alarmed so it would set an alarm off if someone opened it to get out or to let someone in as a deterrent. They also brought up the point of locking the front gates and doors after classes has started to prevent people from entering who are not supposed to be, they would have to go through an administration area to get in.

    Heck both my elementary and high school had these practices but they were both catholic, when it comes to public high schools and such, besides metal detectors for the schools in the "bad area's" not much thought is given to security.

    I see no reason why that should have to be the case, though. My high school had 4 entrances that were regularly used and we've done just fine

    all that talk about modifying school buildings instead of trying to fix the reason why those sick fucks have such an easy access to guns sound really silly to me, I think i once saw a show where there was a discussion about the idea of installing magnetic locked doors and I was like, really?

    also, the Florida shooting and this one didn't happen in bad neighborhoods, and if targeting schools were to become really difficult maybe they would go to a mall, theater or church instead.

    I know it is just pandering but
    "We have devalued life in this country. We threw God out of school."
    I have a book from the 40's called "Our National Enemy Number One: Education Without Religion" by John Francis Noll ( https://gbatemp.net/threads/do-you-believe-in-god.405333/page-56#post-6524253 for the start and some of the contents). It is one of my favourite propaganda books actually, and its chapter on non religious things is almost prescient (I have some pictures of that somewhere, may upload later).
    Either way if it was like that in the 40s and if the cases it makes are correct then it goes back even further (he noted a distinct correlation between Sunday schools stopping being attended and lessening religiousness as the generations wore on) then we are looking at very long time for the effects to arise. Equally the only religious classes in much of the rest of the world are optional and clinical things not unlike you might teach geography or history.

    I've said it before and i'll say it again. if the parents actually took the time to LOOK at what their kid was playing , instead of just giving them everything to get out of their hair, half this shit wouldn't happen.

    I agree that violent movies and video games do have a negative effect on children that is why there are ratings, but who is supposed to enforce that at home?
