And now the Sheriff of the county in which the Florida killings took place is going to station an armed deputy in every school in the county.
But why wasn't this done before the shootings ever got started? Because it was deemed to be too expensive, and a waste of police resources.
So now, after the massacre had been accomplished, the Sheriff wants to "lock the stable door after the horse has already been stolen."

Good thinking, Sheriff.

(He's also against arming the teachers.)

There was an armed deputy sheriff at the school as the killer began to shoot.
But that deputy sheriff did nothing to stop the killer. He stayed outside and did nothing!


And when he learned that he was to be disciplined for not having “moved toward the sound of the guns,” he resigned.

 This was given a brief half-second on the evening "news":

So now it turns out that there was an armed deputy sheriff at the school as the killer began to shoot.

But that deputy sheriff did nothing to stop the killer. He stayed outside and did nothing!


And when he learned that he was to be disciplined for not having “moved toward the sound of the guns,” he resigned.

How do we stop school shootings? We do something.

...And I bet you saw that sign in a gun-free zone.

Along with shooting technique and the relevant laws, tactics should also be taught.

I recently saw a sign in an article that stated; "Staff is armed and trained any intent to harm children will be met with deadly force."

Now, if I were a bad person who would I take out first?

Why not just say; "Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force." Keep the "who" is going to administer that deadly force as a question in the bad person's mind.

Just a thought.

In Atlanta it is in the high 70s, sunshine, and a with slight breeze out of the East. The Cherry trees are in bloom, and so are my sinuses.

It’s snowing…big, fat. soft flakes that are sticking well.So far, about an inch.

Our bigger stove is eating wood wholesale, but the whole house is nice and warm.
It’s the view out the windows that is cold, not us.

The birds and squirrels seem to be taking it well.
Even the three hummingbirds which are wintering over with us seem to be OK.

Very soon the whole island will look like a powdered-sugar-frosted Christmas cookie.

And also pretty soon I'll have to trudge out to the post-box to get our mail (shi-v-v-v-er)...

Well I read it and it is so right on.
This should be required reading for everyone, as the title says:
There’s a Way to Stop Mass Shootings, and You Won’t Like It.

Good article, Steve. I have bookmarked it for later reading; I want to go through the 1178 comments that were posted.
