    People look at me sideways when I say Teachers should be allowed to carry concealed.

    This is so sad to see.

    Yep. He didn't see the "No Guns Allowed" sign, otherwise this would never have happened.

    Those signs are just as effective as anti-drug laws.

    The correct response is to have suitably trained CC teachers, but liberal schools will never let that happen. They are interested in turning out Eloi.

    Chek out the Eloi in H. G. Wells' Time Machine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eloi

    Was listening to the police chatter from Broward county ... definitely scary. It frustrates me so much that we continue to allow this to happen. I truly believe the core cause is because we get so easily hurt as a society. We foster a "I am hurt so I can seek revenge" attitude instead of the "turn your other cheek," "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" attitude. I am sick, I am mentally ill, I am (fill in the blank), so I have a right to act out against others. Then it comes back to bite us and it is the guns fault.

    I know, I am probably rambling, but so many thoughts are going through my head. I feel so bad for the victims and the victims families. I feel bad for the shooter and the shooter's family. I feel bad for the Emergency Response personnel that had to deal with this from dispatch to front lines. The actions of one have effected so many lives. They are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    I have to be honest I don't feel bad for the shooter at all. I think he should be hung in front of the school. When is this going to end!

    Prayers for the families and god speed recovery for victims.
    First question I have is:

    Is the school locked from the outside with an intercom system,monitored , to allow people/vistors, etc back in after being visually cleared, during school hours? If not, why?

    Appears with 3,000 students that makes roughly 320 teaches. Were any of them armed and trained that could have prevented this? If not, why?

    The news needs to stop reporting all this violence, then a lot of this type of behavior will cease it will never stop but I believe it will slow down

    Yep. At the very least, stop reporting the name of the scumbags that do this to become famous.

    Since schools have been made gun-free zones school shootings have become more commonplace. This is a fact! No matter how they spin it, anti-gun liberals aided by the media will continue to blame the gun & only the gun. They will play & replay the scenes & shout meaningless dogma like,"we want answers" & ask witnesses what was going through their minds when they heard the shots. The end result will be a new wave of legislation calling for more feel good punitive & useless gun control laws.

    That being said, it's time for all schools to have metal detectors & only one entrance open from the outside. Furthermore, they need an armed resource officer on the premises during school hours to monitor the door at the beginning of the school day & lunch hour. Anyone without a valid school ID must be escorted to the office before entering the academic area. No exceptions! It's inconceivable that anyone can walk into a school building carrying an assault rifle or any weapon.

    We are living in an age where we can not feel safe even in our own homes, schools, churches or public places. Since the do-gooders have chosen to make gun-free zones into unprotected killing fields, a school district's first priority must be to protect the students, faculty & staff. While politicians argue no win solutions & more laws that have no chance of preventing future slaughter, our children are dying. That's the reality! Money is no object. Taking action tomorrow is already too late. We don't need knee-jerk reactions by political...jerks! We need realists who recognize the danger, not school boards who are afraid parents will get the idea schools aren't safe.
