In most jurisdiction's the law may require pedophiles to wear a locator bracelet, in addition, these people many times, are restricted in their travels (school property, dwellings housing children etc.). For some reason, many who suffer from a known mental disorder, continue to be allowed unrestricted access without any means to monitor their movements. The root cause of the recent carnage which occurred in Newtown, CT., a mentally disturbed individual was given a pass by a "compassionate" society. How many of Newtown's mental health professionals knew this young person was unstable and a possible threat to society but chose to look the other way? Those who believe removing guns from society is a cure-all, are sick like Lanza

A new Gallup poll shows the majority of Americans believe armed police stationed at schools would be the most effective way to prevent and stop school shootings. They also believe spending more money on the mental healthcare system would help prevent another Sandy Hook.

Americans are most likely to say that an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment venues would be effective in preventing mass shootings at schools. Americans rate the potential effectiveness of a ban on assault and semi-automatic guns...
