    3 components that have been involved in some of these school (and college) shootings are violent video games, medication for psychological issues and lack of appropriate surveillance and intervention for the shooter ahead of time. Also, our culture feeds our kids a lot of "guns solve problems" storylines in film and television. Ultimately though, in most of these scenarios, it falls on the parents whose guns are being used in these crimes.

    This is a classic example that active shooters REGARDLESS of age group will continue to explore their violent behavior in any school setting REGARDLESS on location boundaries (urban or rural communities). What needs to occur is for the Santa Fe Public School Superintendent to continue utilizing the City and County Office of Emergency Management efforts in training and educating his staff on how to respond to an active shooter's scenario in the public schools. Both Office of Emergency Management from the City and County should be able to utilize the Police, Sheriff's, Fire, and EMS for training with the school staff on duty and/or during school hours. In this way, all of the first responder's can work closely together and strengthen their ability to work together as a team and stop the violent behavior from escalating. Practice, Practice, Prepare, Prepare, and be ready to respond without doubt. The Santa Fe Public Schools are not ready to handle this type of active shooters scenarios as we speak.

    In other news of idiots misusing guns, a 71 year old retired police captain in Florida shot and killed a man in a theatre because the guy would not stop texting.

    Is it something in the water, or have a lot of people forgotten the concept of self-restraint?
