Students across the nation rallied at marches and called for more gun regulations or outright gun bans in order to stop school shootings. Critics complained that the many students who don't really understand the debate were used as pawns or simply got caught up in the moment. Whatever their rationale, they marched. But an assessment is due. They should ask what did they accomplish? If they got their wish of more gun control would it make them safer? Would it make our society safer? While guns were the focus, too many forget that they're only a tool and only part of the equation to achieve school safety. Other measures that can make schools safer include: metal detectors at every door, security personal stationed inside schools, and mental health professionals to flag potential shooters.
