He takes some of the wasted money spent on worthless federal programs an gives states money to put full time security at every school in the US.
The schools cannot afford to provide security for our children yet the banks get millions and millions of federal support to protect our money.

Sadly, education is not a priority for our government.
Has not been for a long long time.
Maybe this can be the sledgehammer to the face of self serving congressmen to do the right thing
Talk about "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".
One mans idea of necessary federal spending is another mans "worthless federal program"
I would support Obama if we installed a $1,000,000,000 electrical fence along the coasts of the Atlantic and Pacific in order to protect our innocent American beach goers from vicious shark attacks.
After all the odds of being eaten by a shark Are about the same as being murdered in an elementary school.
Fear of the unlikely unknown has always been a blatant excuse to waste tax dollars.
Maybe it would be cheaper to regulate gun purchases better?Perhaps an annual $100 psychiatric evaluation for gun owners?
But who wants to sacrifice an iota of THEIR gun rights, when we could just spend an extra $100,000 a year on the thousands of Public schools around the country?
It's free money anyway right?
Nothing to stop local municipalities from instituting a tax/fee to provide this service.
Of course that doesn't change the gun cultural here, which is more of the issue.
Institute martial law at all elementary schools
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Just crazy talk

Do you really feel that what happened today can be controlled?
I was being sarcastic
Guns.........they kill. I am tired of the redneck and street thug population keeping lobbyist from doing away with them. The politician that will standup against that will get my support.
Native Americans hunted long before guns were around. No excuse, IMO.
I still think you can't control why happened today.
I'm not being sarcastic.
Are you really linking a person that likes to hunt and protect his house to a street thug?
I can agree with this. Don't see why we can't meet in the middle
In no way can you control what happened today.
This doesn't happen in England. It can be controlled. It takes time and won't happen overnight, but we can get there.
Would be a good start, but I'd still like to see them gone.
You really want to take guns away from the people that hunt and protect there house? That's the only thing you have in this world to protect yourself and family.
Probably. But controlling isn't the same as taking away when it comes to guns IMO. If you have nothing to hide and really do want one for protection, hunting, etc. you probably won't mind going through a little more to get it
Would be more cost effective to provide better access to mental health care
You just quoted Infowars.....all credibility is lost
The barriers BLF is proposing would in no way impede this. Sane people who are interested in guns for the right reasons will not be affected
You separate a culture from what it was built upon and this is what you get. We don't have a gun issue, we have a cultural one. Guns have been around for hundreds of years and this crap used to not happen. So we need to ask ourself why does this happen now, but not a hundred years ago? Guns aren't the variable.
Media probably has a lot to do with it. No one thought to go shoot up a school
People not taking responsibility for their actions and the social stigma that it's not okay to get help for your problems, in this case mental. What happens after a mass shooting? We blame the media or video games or music or the other kids at school... we rarely blame the parents or the aggressor themselves. Or if we do the latter, we immediately talk about what a terrible human being they are and how they've been a demon their entire lives and we hope they burn in hell... instead of, you know, looking back over all the years of them showing signs of having issues and not encouraging them to get help. Even worse, we make fun of this people as being "weak" and tell them to just man up. No, stop being in denial and a prideful asshole and tell them to do the adult thing and see someone about their problems.
That's what our culture issues are.
