It is now obvious that we need to ban students from schools. Without students, there will be no student shooters and no student victims. It's common sense.

OOPS! can't spell this AM--should be "sarcasm".

I'm not being sarcastic. I'm just applying simple common sense logic to the problem at hand.

After all, this very incident shows that metal detectors and armed guards can't stop someone from smuggling a gun into a school. But when was the last time you heard of someone smuggling a student into a school?

Get rid of the students, and be default you get rid of the students with guns. You also get rid of any potential for students as victims. It's win-win.

As for the teachers, I'm quite certain they will happily sit in empty classrooms doing nothing. It's not that different from what they are doing now.

Problem solved... that would be the Obama-Biden solution.

Just ban schools. You guys aren't far enough outside of the box.

Can't do that ... it would put the Teacher's Unions out of business

Yesterday a school shooting was quickly stopped before it escalated further thanks to an armed guard being on campus.

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
