Two armed murderers entered a school south of Denver yesterday. One thing we know is that this attack doesn’t come as a surprise.
We wouldn’t turn off the fire alarms, remove fire extinguishers and first aid boxes at our schools and replace them with a plastic sign that says “No Fire Allowed”. That would be ridiculous, yet we did that when it came to protecting our children from violence on campus.
It wasn’t the plastic “no-guns” sign that failed in Highland, but the adults who believed it. We can fix that tomorrow… and we should.
