    A single entrance/exit to a massive building with lots of people in it? Doesn't take a genius to see what is wrong with that plan.

    Next school shooter is instead a school arsonist and hundreds of people burn to death as there's no fire exits.

    This is done much more often than people realize. It's actually in the movie Stand and Deliver.

    Why's that a rolleyes?

    That's news, this is a new thing - the first meeting of a newly announced body will almost invariably be in the future not the past. If their first meeting was six years ago that'd be a rolleyes as its just recycled old news.

    It's likely to be a load of crap that does nothing to fix the problem but that's the issue not the timing being next week.

    You did look at the release date, right?

    It's also not as if school shootings weren't a thing for the last decades or so.

    No I didn't. And I've been advocating action for the last decades or so - I hold Trump, Obama and Bush in contempt for not dealing with it sooner. Not sure about Clinton.

    Figures that you would whaffle about something without ever looking at it.

    The timing is emblematic of the load of crap. Starting a new thing on School Safety is in the same category of *Thoughts and Prayers* -- it sounds good but doesn't change anything. The latest shooting happened at a school already doing the (dare I say) bullet points?
