    The people that do this kind of thing intentionally pick "soft" targets. When the urge to become a spree killer hits these people inevitably head to a school or a shopping mall or some other public place. You don't see them heading to police stations or other areas where their rampage is more likely to get cut short.

    The other part of the equation is that behavior like this is usually unpredictable. It's like trying to judge when and where an earthquake will happen. You can see all the factors that make it a possibility but judging when to make the call to evacuate is pretty much impossible. I'd like nothing better than to prevent these lunatics from obtaining implements of destruction but that can't be accomplished without taking away other rights and justifying the "reasonableness" of taking away any rights is tentative at best.

    The facts of the matter are that the vast majority of people are law abiding, sane and rational. Some small percentage of people are not. It's is the antithesis of freedom to apply judgement and consequences to the whole of a population simply because a limited percentage will not abide by the common rules of the society.

    It won't work. The guns would have to be safely secured in a place where students aren't likely to be around (and thus where teachers aren´t likely to be) and anybody who plans on shooting up a school with no regard for their own life will know where, be prepared and plan accordingly.

    Ryan Lanza was shooter per CNN with no known connection to the school as of yet; apparently one of his parents found dead in mom's house (I assume it was his mother)

    I live across the state from this elementary school...the people are frothing at the mouth.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    People are discussing capital punishment and wider healthcare provision too. If it were a terrorist attack they would be discussing religion and foreign policy.

    These are all politically contentious issues, I'm not seeing a sacred cow other than being tasteful enough to leave one's political advocacy to a more appropriate time in all cases.
