When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, Israel did not declare every school a gun-free zone. It passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers and today runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.It is an approach that the Americans should take to end the constant slaughter of innocents.
At work right now but I'll leave this here. Food for thought.
Sometimes it helps to read further than just a headline.
1. Israel has very strict gun laws and very low civil gun ownership
2. Armed guards at school weren't mandated until 2 decades after the school shooting.
3. Armed guards are meant to stop terrorists and not disgruntled civilians. Israel has seen plenty of terrorist attacks over the years.
So in one point you are correct. The US should follow Israels polices by enacting stricter gun laws. Food for thought.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
