11,000 folks are murdered in the USA every year. About 35 a day. School is about the safest place to be. An american child is 74 times more chance of being killed in a traffic accident than being murdered at school. Where's the outcry to prevent kids from travelling in cars? No, I don't like hand guns and would like them to all disappear but 24/7 news channels grasp at straws to turn anything into a story to fill space...then the pundits and bloggers can spend countless hours pontificating.
