Pants and @wat0n the issue are people who are in positions of power but won't do pragmatic gun bills to help deter in the future school shootings. While they continue to play politics? The gun nuts go on and continue to do stuff.
I don't live in the states. Here the issues are uninvestigated killing and raping and dumping bodies of innocent women and young women at that. They are taking to the streets and threaten the ones who don't act. It is going to get ugly. If nothing is done. They had a Netflix movie on that called 'Justicia para Maricela?" I don't recall the exact title. Most shootings in Mexico are about drug cartels. The cartels don't go for killing school kids at random. They kill mayors and so on officials that don't agree with them.
The FBI traced where the drug cartels in Mexico get their guns and ammo etc from. The answer? The USA. Lol. The USA ships it to the drug lords for profits. But the USA wants to say they have nothing to do with the drug cartels getting guns. They got custom built drug cartels. Trump wanted to bomb the cartels in Mexico via the sky without consulting the Mexican government first. It was crazy. Trump is an idiot. You don't go into a nation and bomb without asking about government stuff first. Imagine Mexico says, you got El Chapo in custody...let us bomb him in your air space so we can get justice?
Insane people. Stop having a bunch of drug addiction issues in your country folks. Pass legislation on mental health funding for teens and depressed people, and drug addiction programs proven to work. Higher wages for teachers and administrators that run schools with kids who are well educated and looked after. Get rid of racist cops. Fund school lunch and fun activities for cultural enrichment for the kids in the summertime so they can go and eat and not go hungry if they are poor and get a lot of enrichment regardless of income. Deal with positive solutions. Not a bunch of machismo bullshit that never worked in the long run.
My kid's school in Mexico:
They are a bilingual school and it is Spanish and English that they teach. They are based on Mayan culture. And they are into peace. That is a core value. They don't have officers with guns roaming the hallway folks. It is not a good thing to do.
They do have controlled access but it is about keeping the kids from being in the street where in the front part near the basketball court it is kind of dangerous with a busy street. Especially for younger children.
I am a demanding person with my sons. They have to speak both Spanish and English very very well. They have to try to hit a third foreign language well. They should learn about Mayan culture if they live in a Mayan-influenced city. Merida has enormous influence from Cuba. Havana in terms of culture. Not politics. You see Cuban culture in dancing, culture, literature, music, and people. I really love that school. It is small. He has a person that is really nice and teaches him one-on-one everything.
The world is very big and unless the US realizes that their kids are their most precious resource and not the gun lobbies like the NRA and the Republican foolish leaders who are all bought off hacks? They got problems. The whole world doesn't have alerts about school shooting drills. Yaxunah has never called me with alerts about nutty people shooting up the place. The other school in Denver did. Five times. Get a plan, folks.
