Humberto Ramirez Urdaneta Robles // Could new laws being debated in Tallahassee have stopped past school shooters? - EntornoInteligente

One hundred and sixty three people have died in school shootings since the government began counting in the early 1980s. Needless to say, ?never again? is hardly a controversial idea ? no one wants another school shooting.

The controversy begins when politicians start talking solutions. At the crux of the arguments: What laws would keep students safe while maintaining citizens? Second Amendment rights? With varying levels of support, ideas currently debated in Florida include: an ?assault weapons ban,? red flag laws, stronger background checks and waiting periods, age limits for weapons purchases, and banning bump stocks.

A look at the deadliest school shootings in United States history shows that no single idea ?from the right or left ? would have prevented every school shooting.

But each proposal may have prevented at least one of them, experts say.

The Sandy Hook shooter who killed 27, including himself, stole the rifle from his mother, so a better background check and a three-day waiting period that included mental health reviews wouldn?t have prevented the possibly schizophrenic young man from having a weapon.

The Virginia Tech shooter who killed 33, including himself, in the deadliest school shooting in history used two pistols, not a rifle, so the ?assault weapons ban? as it?s being called, wouldn?t have changed anything.

He was also 23, so no proposed age limit would have stopped him either.
