For the same reason there was only one plane hijacking in Israel--they did not negoiate nor pay a ransom.    The Isarealis knew that if they got hijacked they were screwed.   We could all learn from them.

Hi All, I am going to jump in on this also.  I totally believe we should have a police officer placed at each school, as they are trained for this type of thing, and anyone would think twice before trying to enter with a cop stationed there.  A gunman wouldn't always go into the priciple's office right away anyway.  The whole idea is to keep these people out of the schools. This whole tragedy could have been avoided if the mother of this boy had placed him in an institution where he belonged many years ago, as it isn't like she didn't know he was a menace to society.  Love for a child is one thing but knowing your are keeping someone that needs constant watching was doing an injustice to him and all the people that he would come in contact with  Just saying   Joyce

The Israelis arm themselves not from attack within their own but from outside. This is standard precaution against their enemies and not from those within which is the case with these disgraceful shootings in the schools in America. Why is it that these senseless shootings seem to occur in the US other than the senseless idea that if you give more people guns then everything will be ok? Yeah great idea. The way to help stop the problem is to arm more people.

Oh and by the way Hometown how do you presume to know that the mother of this boy had any inkling of the possible outcome of this and was aware of the state of mind of her child? It is easy to sit in the corner and point the finger at the mother but not at the real culprit. Give more guns to those in responsible positions so when they are having a bad time in their life let them take life in their own hands.

Go on Americans get more guns that will surely fix the problem. I suppose this is laughable from someone who is so called programmed to think the way I do being a Liberal and does not have the ability to think. Oh and I forgot the ability to "feel". I am glad I do and do not have to come up with inane ideas and defend the indefensible. Keep killing America.

Yeah if that is what you want to believe MMSH. Just another interested person hoping this carnage can be stopped. You seem more interested in your guns than in what is happening.

Have you ever read the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.  'To keep and bear arms' is a protected right, not a privledge. The only 'gun control' we need in this country is getting rid of illegal firearms used by criminals.  Most gun owners never fire a shot, unless they are hunters.  As to those of you that think hunting is cruel--you should see what Mother Nature will do to 'cull the herd'.  That, by the way is the purpose of huntng.  Where I live the deer population is so big that you wake up in the morning to deer grazing on your lawn. I live in an urban area and this is downright dangerous. Ever hear of a fish-kill? This is Mother natures way of 'culling the herd'.  It is not a pretty sight--it's horrific. Better an area be properly fished so the population can remain stable and safe.

Don’t you realize the thugs will always have guns! Why do you never hear of a home evasion in homes out in the country! Because we all have weapons and the thugs know it! Unreal the way some people think! Prescription drugs kill a lot more than guns!
