They should have an armed security guard at the front entrance in an office and, the only way to enter the school would be through that office. All doors could maybe have a key-less entry where teachers would have to enter a code to get in. Obviously you guys have to do something to protect your children. Whether they take your guns away or not, the bad guys will always be able to get them regardless.

How long more can we ignore those holes, just as in the Tetris game, as the issues pile up with an increasing population, before it overwhelms us all and man-made GAME OVER befalls us all?

Armed teachers, with cases of teachers abusing their pupils would it be wise to arm them?
Armed security guards and checkpoints in every school?
Attempt to ban guns against the 2nd amendment?
I believe theres just simply are too many guns in the USA now, both illegal and legal. People will always be able to get a gun if they try, and unlike the war on drugs, guns arnt "consumed", once you have one you have it for life so even if banning all gun ownership was even an option criminals would be better armed than law abiding folks - thats right out (and against the 2nd amendment).
Im so confused as to the right course of action but you also cant do nothing about massacres of the USA youth and degradation of the school system.
Is there actually a right thing to do, or a combination of things to do? or perhaps even nothing at all? Im just so lost with all the media coverage from every angle - or is the hidden plan to make SURE everyones confused about it all.

The UK has guns, just like Germany and France and Italy and in Switzerland about every male has an assault rifle.
True, less guns per capita than the US, but the murder rate in Europe with a gun is lower by a factor larger than that of gun ownership. Meaning although there are less guns than in the US there is not less gun violence, there is far far far less gun violence.
So to achieve the rates of gun violence we see in Europe, the same measures must be taken. Meaning not guns must be banned, but the way they are stored and used must be regulated. In Germany and I am sure in other countries too, you are obligated to keep the gun in a gun cabinet that fulfills certain standards. Then there are regulations on moving guns too. Gun control does not mean no guns.
