I prefer that the legislative branch pass and enforce gun control laws for the type of military weapons being used to take the lives of our children and all innocent people. Any funding could be used to educate all citizens on the intent of the second amendment ( Citizens do have the right to own guns. AK-47’s, machine guns, and the vast variety of military guns are not necessary. ), to provide services for the emotionally and mentally challenged, to install security systems in school, to provide teachers with the educational supplies and tools they need, and to pay teachers decent salaries.
As Americans, we are all better than the low bar that has been set for respect, tolerance, integrity, and just plain old decency. Life is precious! We can do better than living in a “police state”.
