Armed Janitors Approved By Montpelier, Ohio, School Board To Stop School Shootings.

Why would they approve this and what comfort or safety will this bring to the kids who attend the school? I don’t understand who this is the solution to a much bigger problem by arming a janitor with a gun. You may be able to reduce the number of children injured or killed but in all these instance the attacks were planned and the gunmen carried multiple rounds. A janitor going up against that kind of arsenal is going to have a hard time defending himself let alone a school. It doesn’t make sense not to plan this out before executing whatever plan. The way to prevent this from happening is to take more of an interest in the student and provide mental health services or counselors to troubled kids.

NRA Membership Surges By 100,000 In Wake Of Sandy Hook Shooting

NRA Membership Surges By 100,000 In Wake Of Sandy Hook Shooting.

That title alone scares the crap out of me people. Is it panic? Do people believe the NRA can help them? I am confused. In the weeks after the Sandy Hook shooting, the NRA has averaged 8,000 new members a day which is a little unusual but expected since high profile shooting are followed by periods of increased interest in the NRA. There has been some drawback though with isolated instances of former members abandoning the organization because of head lobbyist Wayne LaPierre that argued guns are needed in school to prevent future mass shootings. Since then, the NRA has taken a more active roll in Obama’s initiatives to prevent gun violence.
