School Security

Any time there's a horrible school shooting there's talk of changing security as if there's something schools can or should be doing. It's stupid. We live in a society where lots of people have very easy access to guns. People who aren't too concerned about getting caught or killed, as is usually the case, will generally manage to injure or kill a few people. They could just as easily do this in a school bus, or outside the school, or at some gathering of people elsewhere, or whatever. Turning the school itself into an extreme security location where students inevitably just feel like criminals won't really help stop anything.
