Here's How to Prevent The Next School Shooting - npr. It won't happen, though, because it relies on expert advice...
About 200 universities, national education and mental health groups, school districts, and more than 2,300 individual experts have signed on to support this document in the weeks since.

The formula is straightforward:
A public health approach to protecting children as well as adults from gun violence involves three levels of prevention: (1) universal approaches promoting safety and well-being for everyone; (2) practices for reducing risk and promoting protective factors for persons experiencing difficulties; and (3) interventions for individuals where violence is present or appears imminent.

What sets this call to action apart from other policy proposals is not gun control, however, but the research-based approach to violence prevention and response. This is a long haul, say the experts, not a quick fix.
[npr] Thus, it has no chance in hell, nor do our children.

Well, our illustrious president has put his finger on the problem. The solution is simple: just increase suspensions and expulsions of minority students. Betsy (The Wetsy behind the ears) DeVos will lead a commission to repeal Obama's "Rethink School Discipline" policies.

This only makes sense in Trump's demented brain. Cruz, the Parkland shooter was white. He had been suspended and expelled. There has never been a black school shooter. But lax discipline might allow a minority who might be a potential shooter slip through the cracks.

See? No need to tackle the NRA. Not that he's afraid of the NRA. They just made so much sense during that private dinner, whatever they said.

Of course suspending and expelling students makes them go away and never come back with a gun to settle grievances. Hmmm: Maybe we should rethink this policy and try to keep troubled kids engaged with the school and feeling like they have been treated fairly?

Maybe social engineering is more useful than open warfare. Of course this is not as satisfying as smiting them, in the Old Testament sense.
