Another Possible Solution to School Shootings

Yesterday a friend posted a clip on Facebook from Lester Holt's News program about a school in Indiana and how they addressed the issue of school shootings.

They did NOT cut classes to lobby their legislators for more gun control.

They took matters into their own hands. They installed a fence around their school. They installed bullet-resistant doors in their classrooms. They installed security cameras. These cameras are monitored by school administration and by someone at the sheriff's office. They also installed a system that releases smoke to disorient someone who is not supposed to be there. And they have active shooter drills so that the kids know what they are supposed to do if this ever happens at their school.

Gun enthusiasts like to say that the best response to a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. But a lot of teachers are not comfortable with that. The school in Indiana is an example of another possible solution that does not involve punishing the many for the misdeeds of a few.

Missing fathers and America's broken boys - the vast majority of mass shooters come from broken homes

My most recent article about the Parkland school shooting and its connection to fatherlessness prompted a tsunami of emails. In one of those emails, a man named Fritz asked what I considered to be the root of fatherlessness. I decided to write a follow-up article to answer that question.

The subject of “The Desperate Cry of America’s Boys” is a difficult one. To point out that boys need their fathers is to shine a spotlight on divorce and single mothers; and that is, admittedly, uncomfortable. But there’s no way to address fatherlessness comfortably.
