How do we stop school shootings?

Today I am looking to see if anyone has any suggestions
on how to stop the school shootings.

Here is a very interesting practice that a teacher has

developed following the Colombine shooting!
It's pro-active!

"Author Glennon Doyle Melton met with her son's teacher, who
revealed that every Friday afternoon, she asks her fifth graders
to fill out a sheet of paper.

She asks them who they would like to sit with next week and who
has been an exceptional class citizen that week.

The teacher then looks for patterns to figure out which kids are
lonely, isolated, or being bullied.
She has been doing it every Friday since the Columbine shootings.

Here is the video about metal detectors in schools!

Here is more from that article in Business Insider ~`
"Afterward, we sat for a few minutes and talked about teaching children
and what a sacred trust and responsibility it is. We agreed that subjects
like math and reading are not the most important things that are learned in a
classroom. We talked about shaping little hearts to become contributors to a
larger community—and we discussed our mutual dream that those communities might be
made up of individuals who are kind and brave above all. ~`... more ...

Dr Towers' research has been used by Alerrt, ~` a
team at Texas State University that studies "active shooter response".

They have a campaign called Don't Name Them. ~`

"A lot of shooters - not all of them - are driven by this desire
for notoriety," says Dr Pete Blair from Alerrt.
"If we know that's one of the motivations,
why are you giving them the reward?"

Dr Blair doesn't want a ban on naming shooters. But he thinks
the media should focus on "heroes, the community, and -
where appropriate - the victims".

Some US journalists - such as CNN's Anderson Cooper - and websites
now choose not to name mass killers.

2. Let teachers carry guns

The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in December 2012,
was reported to police at 9.35am. Officers arrived less than
four minutes later; within a minute, they heard the gunman shoot himself.

He had already killed 20 children and six adults inside the school.

"If schools' only solution is to rely on outside help, it will never
get any better than we saw at Sandy Hook," says Joe Eaton.

Eaton is from the Buckeye Firearms Association, ~` a gun-owners'
group in Ohio. After Sandy Hook, they set up Faster - a programme that trains
teachers to respond to mass shootings.

The programme includes first aid, moving through crowds, and firearms training
that is, how to kill a school gunman.

"What those figures fail to capture, though, is the collateral damage of this uniquely American crisis. Beginning with Columbine in 1999, more than 187,000 students attending at least 193 primary or secondary schools have experienced a shooting on campus during school hours, according to a year-long Washington Post analysis.
This means that the number of children who have been shaken by
gunfire in the places they go to learn exceeds the population of
Eugene, Ore., or Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Many are never the same. " ~`... more ...

"The study focused on examining the thinking, planning and other behaviors of students who carried out school attacks.
Particular attention was given to identifying pre-attack behaviors and communications that might be detectable – or "nowable",
and could help prevent future attacks. ~`... more ...
"The scene in Benton, Ky., on Tuesday was the worst so far in 2018:
Two 15-year-old students were killed and 18 more people were injured.
But it was one of at least 11 shootings on school property recorded
since Jan. 1, and roughly the 50th of the academic year." ~`... more ...
