No, did people here ever learned the "cause and effect" rule? The cause is as was stated by Schmidt that "guns" should not be in the hands of disturbed people, neither should they be sold to civilians, like in other civilized countries. Like I said so many times the "second amendment" does not apply to the guns we have now but only to guns they had when this "amendment" was written; like "flintlocks". If people can't figure that out in this stupid country then I give up on the "brains" here.
Thus clean up the cause; band aids as protecting schools is putting the horse behind the wagon. As well cost again a fortune; education here has no priority; the army has instead. The world laughs at us, with our unbelievable nutty laws and non-laws.
Look at the list I published of how "corrupt" this country is; all of the GOP is in "bed" with the NRA and no one "blinks"
Saying these things does absolutely nothing to solve the problem. You can say that the U.S. is stupid. You can say that you "give up on the brains here". You can say the U.S. has nutty laws. You can say the world laughs at us. But it does nothing to help the current situation.
And no matter how many words you put in bold, you are wrong about the second amendment. It absolutely does apply to today's firearms. I don't agree with certain aspects of it, but it does. I don’t see any reason for a person to own an assault rifle, other than recreational and hobby purposes. Even then, I still don't think civilians should own them. They're just too militarized of a weapon. But they are legal.
And to your "clean up the cause":
Saying that figuring out a way to (band aid) protect schools in the meantime, perhaps with armed guards/staff, would be putting the horse behind the wagon is silly. By that logic, we shouldn't discuss ways to protect our schools at all because the problem is already here? The problem is here. No name calling, finger pointing, or figuring out which politicians are corrupt is going to fix that. Saying that the second amendment only applies to firearms of the time won't fix it. The guns are legal today and are doing harm, unfortunately.
We can all stand up and shout at the top of our lungs that we want the laws changed and/or ban these guns. But what will that accomplish? Our own government is at a point that it no longer cares about "the people". There have been unprecedented mass shootings, protests, millions of people saying they want them banned, but nothing has been done to stop it. So when you say that the constitution is stupid and that guns shouldn't be in civilian hands, do you honestly think that helps or will happen before the next mass shooting?
Here are some obvious steps in the right direction:
Guns should not be possessed by a person with mental health issues, period.
Assault riffles are too militarized for civilians, so ban them.
Implement much more rigorous background checks and ownership rules.
But according to the facts, this is the 18th mass shooting in 2018. That's almost two a week. So let's say by some act of god any of those began being discussed TODAY by congress. Do you honestly think (by the 2 a week numbers) that ANY of those would be discussed, hashed out, agreed upon and implemented before the next mass shooting? Congress can't even agree if our air needs to be clean. Do you really think they will agree on something as controversial as this in any sort of decent time? It’s absolutely pathetic, but it’s true.
And I should clarify that I am not saying political steps are obsolete. We 100% need changes throughout our entire political system. It's in an absolutely horrible position right now that isn't benefiting the county or its people whatsoever. But simply blaming politicians, saying everything and everyone is stupid, saying guns are bad or yelling to change gun laws does nothing in the meantime.
