The White House, Congress and Federal courts protect themselves with armed guards and x-ray and metal detectors. It is simple. It is just inconvenient, and cists a littke money, but if you want to prevent a particular building, that is all you have to do. Let us tax ammo and guns a little to fund detectors and offer them to schools that will hire their own guards.

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...
