So now, not only are we still feeling the effects of the shooting in Newtown, but a lawyer has seen fit to file a $100 million lawsuit in the name of a surviving child. All because, that the state Board of Education, Department of Education and Education Commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from "foreseeable harm."
The lawsuit also states: "they had failed to provide a "safe school setting" or design "an effective student safety emergency response plan and protocol."
Now the argument for gun control has been going on for decades. I, just like a lot of others are still sad by this atrocity. But what is a "Safe School Setting?" Better yet, what is "Foreseeable Harm," when it comes to something like this? This to me, is nothing more then another lawyer trying to get his 15 minutes of fame at the cost of the emotional distress of a small community and children.
So what kind of gun control should we have to prevent this again? Your guess is s good as mine. The only gun control that may have any effect is outlaw/ban all guns period. No hunting rifles, no handguns, no shotguns. Not even water guns sold in stores, paintball guns or a child's BB gun. Because any other type of gun control is pointless. But then if you think about it, so isn't an entire ban on any firearm. Because there will always be away to get your hands on a gun.
