that we should add more trained armed security, turn schools into updated secure and armored zones, and “flush” the violence out of the human spirit.

Well, that won’t “flush” the violence out of the American (not necessarily human) spirit, but consider the fact that nowadays, you don’t even get into an office building without first confronting an armed guard.

The fact that we are willing to use armed guards to protect our banks, businesspeople and our politicians, but not our children, says loads about who we are as a people, and what we value.
