Is the Administration of Richland 2 School District keeping a lot of the information out-of-sight?
Is the Board of Trustees being kept fully informed of the problems?
What about parents? Are they being informed? Ya think? I don't!
The District's new MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between eight school districts, multiple law-enforcement agencies, major healthcare providers, and the Be SMART group is simplistic, to say the least.
It will not get to the heart of the problem. The big question is WHY do students take guns to school and commit crimes with guns? Why do they shoot at others? THIS is what must be addressed!
The basics are important. Don't point guns at people or animals or pull the trigger when the gun is not pointed in a safe direction. Well, duh...
Gun locks? Except for that fact that someone with wirecutters will have the gun lock off in a jiffy, they are a deterrent to the smallest child's being able to fire a gun.
Expose kids to the NRA's Eddie Eagle Program. Sit down with your kids and watch the Eddie Eagle video now. Click on the link.
That MOU needs some serious work and broadening to include more groups.
