Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
However, the number of school administrators has shot up, way ahead of teachers, in the last couple of decades. We don't even need to increase spending - cut off some of our useless fat, and send those salaries the way of our First Responders. Or, hire trained individuals to fill those roles to begin with.

Um...yeah I don't think that is true at all, but I would love to see your data. My guess is that your augment is completely based on anecdotal evidence from your own particular district and is not representative of the country at all.However, the number of school administrators has shot up, way ahead of teachers, in the last couple of decades.

Your lack of prior NRA threads just reinforces my assertion that it's politics that motivates you, not a sincere concern over how to prevent these types of attacks from happening again.
Liberals are good about supporting initiatives that DON'T work or don't have any tangible outcome, it's not about results it's about the intentions.
For every disgusting remark made about the Tea Party or lie concocted about Conservative positions or Hyperbolic insults and trumped up accusations about the previous President you guys are really good at exposing your true character and proving time and time again that to be a die hard liberal one must first remove all pretense of integrity. That's not hyperbole that's truth.
You quit counting dead American soldiers right after 2008, the media who's "objective" stopped covering some no name know nothing bitch who used her dead soldier son to gain attention and popularity, you ignore the massive deficit spending and a sinking economy under a incompetent President who's responsible for a shrinking labor force and a record number of people dependent on hand outs.....
And you still blame Bush..Unbelievable.
You ignore a obvious cover-up involving our dead Ambassador ( if it was Bush you guys would have impeached him buy now ) and lay claim to a GDP that's increasing solely because of massive Govt expenditures.
No more nonsense about Halliburton who actually received their first "no bid contract" under Clinton's administration in his Kosovo redirect or blood for oil threads as you weigh a soldiers blood depending on the Political position of the current administration.
So if I don't believe your "sincerity", just know I have a good reason not to.

The majority of Canadians want less Gun Control. Not more of it. As a % of the population, gun related crime Canada has actually risen since they passed Gun Control Laws in the late 70s. Same thing happened in Australia. Home Invasions alone were up 70%. In the UK gun violence per 100K citizens is more than 2K, while in the United States it's less than 500.
Criminals don't follow gun laws
At the least, can we not secure our school buildings? Ballastic glass on the front entrance...a part-time cop to man the entrance at the beginning of the school day and run the students through metal detectors...(they already do this in many inner-city schools in Chicago and other large cities)...alarms wired directly to cop stations when doors are breached or an attempt is made...wired alarms in every classroom...secure steel doors at every classroom entrance with ballastic glass -- to be locked when class is in session...I could think of many more fixes that would slow down the likes of our Connecticut embecile that would allow for prepared emergency response from LEOs -- and that wouldn't even REQUIRE one person armed in the school.
I'd actually be more for those fixes than having an armed person in the school whose job was to be utterly bored 99.999999999999% of the time and be expected to be a Ninja in a heartbeat.
Thank you, Quazi!
