It's not safe when someone gets shot there

"It's a horrific event and I hate it, and I wish we could have changed it, but our schools are safe," he told reporters.
So they weren't safe before? Of course not; we all know that. Silly signs with associated laws, and zero tolerance policies created to keep the lawyers off the backs of school officials in such an incident will not stop fourteen year old kids from doing the unthinkable.

This, one would think, would be common sense.

It's a horrible tragedy and my heart goes out to the deceased kids family.

So what point do I have in posting this? That school policy, and local, state, and federal laws are not crafted to prevent this from happening. The sooner we wake up to this notion, the sooner something real can be done to prevent future tragedies.
