School Shootings. School shootings (not shootings in the U.S. in general) as a single issue has a seemingly obvious remedy. Two full-time police officers stationed at the entrance of all schools. However, the problem is not that people think this suggested remedy will not work, but that they will likely be told that it is "too expensive" by the local authorities. If you are one who disagrees and wants to push for gun control instead, ask yourself which logically has the better chance of being effective in a society that 315+ millions of guns in private hands (which will still be in civilian hands after any gun-control measures are passed). To conclude, it could be an effort that could be rapidly and it could be just as rapidly abandoned if it did not get the desired result (no more student deaths due to school shootings).
