    This was a “gun free zone” also, so I guess having a law of not having guns at school stops the criminals. (Really) We need teachers who are carrying concealed in all schools as a deterrent. MORE GUNS LESS Crime always works.

    Typical AP propaganda piece. Maryland school. So black gang members shot each other. And the "cool" graphic. KKCO seems to be really scraping the bottom of the barrel.
