Regarding the latest senseless tragedy ----
There have been endless suggestions about armed police in schools, Principals with guns, armed volunteers, etc. with many reasonable objections posted.

Laws will probably be passed regarding citizens not being allowed Military type weapons (which I generally agree with) but impossible to enforce. One suggestion not seen is to make available 'Stun guns' and/or 'Tasers' to key people such as Principals.

A brief search discloses some history of dangers with Tasers but surely a totally safe stun gun or spray could be developed.

I suggest that President Obama initiate a development program to:

1) Disable mass murderers with a non lethal method designed to also minimize lawsuits.

2) Ban violent movies and video games -- even at some risk to free speech and resistance to censorship.

Comments welcomed.
