    It is a question worth asking. And solutions should be explored. School campus' need to be secure.

    IMO, short of banning guns, which would be unconstitutional, there isn't much that can be done on the federal level about school shootings.

    Self defense in and of itself isn't controversial. What is controversial, however, is Florida's stand your ground law which eliminates one of the key requirements of the traditional self defense justification.
    What??? This happened because of STG? How to you get THAT out of this???

    the fact is that, considering the number of college students in the USA compared to the number of college students who get shot every year on campus, college shootings are still pretty damn low frequency occurances.
    How does that statistically compare to Latinos shooting African American teens in gated communities?

    Yes, and largely they are. Even your numbers, as much as they are worse than other places, are still quite small. But this self exmination is sure to led us to palces neither side wants to go. We have to change a lot concerning our mindsets to really exmine this.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    and that's why you have no right to judge.

    nevermind the incredible lack of sympathy you have for these poor victims.

    I cannot believe that after over a year on this board anyone would think I'd post this thread as bait. Or to exploit dead students, for God's sake. You few make me sick. Especially Redress.
    You provided no insight on the story other than suggesting that congress should look into it. If people wish to comment on the motives of your request, the legitimacy of the request, or the idea of such a request in relation to the action that occured then they are discussing the topic YOU presented in the OP. YOU chose to be exploitative and attempt to capitalize on the deaths of others to push your own political issues with the Trayvon Martin case, and if people disagree with doing such a thing or using this horrific incident to do such, YOU have to deal with it just like anyone else that makes a disgusting political point has to deal with people disagreeing with them about it

    Ok, what can be done about this situation....

    No rule will keep someone from going nuts and shooting someone. Last time I checked, it was illegal to walk into any school in the country and shoot students/teachers/principal. Rules do not appear to have stopped them

    On the flip side.....Arming teachers/students is just putting a band-aid on all the moral failures of our country. Maybe we should concentrate on not needing the guns anymore. Do we really want to send the message to our kids that you have to have a gun to be safe, even at school?

    Teachers and students have the right to a safe environment in which to learn, in this case I think it is up to the state to provide it.
