    no guns within 2000 feet of a school.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      Seems to work well in NYC.

      17,000 schools
      1.1 million students
      635,000 K-8 students

      Mass shootings = zero

      Secrets to our success?

      1. Higher taxes

      2. Don't let the citizens decide for themselves whether to keep arms in their homes or in their vehicles or on their person. (Concealed carry permit require permission by the police).

      3. Let the police handle any problems that arise.

      Not a perfect solution but arguably effective in preventing mass shootings in schools.
