Quote:
“As part of my teacher training this past week, I was asked to listen to popping sounds and then determine if they were gun shots or not,” said Ellie Holland, a speech and language pathologist teacher. “I was then asked to be trained to man a family reunification center to provide counseling to parents seeking their children following a catastrophic event.”

“My question to you today, Senator, is when can I plan to get back to trainings that simply teach children to read and write?” she asked.

After some applause from the crowd, Ernst replied as she did throughout all the questions this morning, talking about laws already on the books and calling for more action on mental health care.

“This is a very, very difficult time, and we have gone through many of these,” Ernst began. “I remember going through all types of drills as a child growing up.”

Parts of the crowd yelled out “not like this,” along with intermittent “do something!” shouts.

I don't understand why people treat Ernst or any of her ilk with any respect. They should have drowned out her [expletive] with boos. Then ran her out of town on a rail.

Anecdote on Mom's demand action event - these aren't all granola eating libs here. Surprised to see a fairly conservative neighbor (female) at this event. Ole Mitch better do something, at least more than token as far as letting gun control bills get a vote.
VOX article and a poll affirm anecdote

Male insecurity is the bulk of the problem with guns.

HS my bro teaches at now has 160 cameras. An electrical foreman there told him this comparable or more than a casino.

I heard a report yesterday about how school districts are now hiring companies to monitor students' social media for shooting threats.

Camera's everywhere, armed teachers, online surveillance, lock down drills, clear backpacks -- it is insane to me that people would rather have their children grow up under constant surveillance than do something to limit guns.
