It is a devastating reality. It was good to hear your voice with this article. This is a voice that needs to be heard — teachers know and can articulate this.
Gun lobbyists are killing our kids.
I recently read a novel in which guns were 3-d printed and used in a mass shooting. Those guns make it through metal detectors.
I think we need a multi-faceted approach, beginning with intense, analytical studies on the “making of a mass shooter” and unpack all the similarities between these shooters. Make our policies directly aimed at prevention, based on the individual factors that appear in mass shooters. There are similarities and common threads — we need to find those, and cut the strings.
I empathize with you.
Thanks for the article, Charles!
