The fact of the matter is that in today's world it's been proven time and time again that bullying eventually has very real and deadly consequences. I realize that it's much easier for people to blame inanimate objects than to take responsibility for their own actions, but enough is enough. No amount of punishing law abiding gun owners will solve these issues. Ban guns entirely, and you'll see kids hacking their way through the halls with machetes. Ban knives, and kids will pull a fire alarm to plow down the exiting crowd with a vehicle. Crying about the symptoms is just a futile exercise of whack-a-mole if the root causes are not addressed.

Try taking a gun into any court in america. You will not get far , in fact you will not get in. Most of us have been through the metal detector and placed our change in the little tray. Why do we not do this in schools?

I also advocate this approach. It's a great idea parents should pull there kids out of school until the gun laws are changed to their favor.
In the mean time my kids will benefit from the reduced class sizes.

I know this doesn't apply to all cases, but a lot of these individuals are just broken people that need someone to listen to them - especially in the case of the young perpetrators.
