I don't even.....

 

I think a re education is more likely needed for the youths, just because a teacher says something to butthurt a student, does not give the right for the student to go get a gun to satisfy a hurt ego.

I think parenting couldn't hurt either.

I would have thought keeping guns out of schools was a much better way to be spending money.

I can't help but think something like this would only slow down a shooter if he was determined

If someone was mentally unstable it mightn't matter how well they were raised.

i don't understand how a whiteboard could save a life...they just grab it from the wall and use it as a shield?

The video shows an easel type of board but they're using it as a bulletproof shield

 

 

I wonder if it'll stop a .357 magnum armour piercing round at close range.... :shiftyninja:

Parenting isn't all about teaching kids right from wrong its also about being a responsible parent. Locking guns up and such.
