Hollywood Liberal: Mediators, Not Armed Guards, Needed To Prevent School Shootings
Russell Simmons, who has his own armed security staff, thinks school shootings could be avoided if all schools had unarmed mediators to counsel potential mass murderers:
Simmons asked for funding for nonprofit organizations like Life Camp, Man Up and I Love My Life that promote peace through unarmed patrol officers and offer counseling to emotionally troubled people.Simmons also clumped together mass shootings such as Sandy Hook with gun violence in Chicago, which claimed 56 young lives in just one weekend. Simmons did not mention that Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

Gang members against gang members works for me.

(Of course, some of the groups staff have been arrested while in possession of drugs, and the group is run by "former" gang members, so...)
