Everywhere I go, there are shooter drills.
We've had one at our hospital. My kids have had them at school.
I'd like to say that this is a ridiculous overreaction to something that's really rare, but I can't entirely say that. Yes, it's really rare. There have been over 50 school shootings this year, which isn't very much compared with the number of schools in the country, but it's not winning the lottery rare. It's probably more common than being involved in an airplane crash.
I just find it really depressing that the country has gotten to the point where we have to do this. When I was a kid, we weren't having shooter drills. There's obviously a problem, yet we've elected a President who is potentially going to loosen the gun restrictions that most people in this country want. That's what bugs me--that the vast, vast majority of people in this country are more worried about mass shootings than they are about their second amendment rights being taken away.
I don't understand how the solution to increasing mass shootings is to teach people what to do when it happens and just accept that there's nothing we can do to stop them.
