I know there will be those who argue that these measures will not keep guns out of the hands of potential assailants (i.e. a student intent on mayhem might get a gun owned by a parent). However, the record shows that that was true in many shootings. Nevertheless, even if these actions might not prevent all future shootings, this
approach would undoubtedly make them much less common.
Whether or not I am elected to the Baltimore County school board, I will advocate strongly for these sensible reforms.
