  •  What can be expected when we put guns in schools (9+ / 0-)

    Sadly, we can expect more of these accidental shooting when we put more guns in more school.

    As I have shown previously, more guns correlates with more gun injuries (here: http://www.dailykos.com/...).  

    So, if we put more guns in a place that previously has been relatively free of guns, we can expect more gun injuries and deaths.

    This shooting at sheriff Fanning's home is not some sort of aberration.  As the excellant series GunFail show us (publish right here at dk by David Waldman), every week hundreds of Americans get shot accidentally, many dying as a result.

    The dangers of gun ownership and use are clear.  Like cigarette second-hand smoke, guns are not only dangerous for the person using them, but for everyone nearby.  

    Guns should not be made available in or around schools.
