Yes the current practice is to try and release as many as possible,or give shorter sentences.  

Only in liberal run States... where most of the crime is occurring!

What places now are fortresses?  Airports, although instead of having one entrance into a building, they feed everyone through metal detectors and check points.  Government buildings, except post offices.  Yet shootings happen there so I’m not sure why they aren’t.  Homes of politicians.  

Don't forget States/Counties/Cities where open carry and concealed carry are allowed are also fortresses of a sort. Criminals tend to shoot up places where they find the least resistance... States/Counties/Cities where open carry and concealed carry are allowed are basically fortresses themselves and thus crime and shootings in those areas are also quite low.

A good guy/gal with a gun can stop a bad guy/gal with a gun. So the more good guys with guns, the less chances of the bad guy with a gun being able to cause mass casualties.

That seems to be true. We are also not addressing the biggest crime. Children shot down every day in big cities. When are their names and pictures shown in the news?

The majority of those are black on black shootings in mainly Democrat controlled areas and thus the liberal news media will never ever cover those.

Shows just how little they care about Black Lives Matter!

17 states have red flag laws. I didn’t know what they are so I looked them up.  Apparently they don’t work all that well.  It takes time to flag someone, go to court to take their guns away and then do it. During that time, a potential shooter has already done what they planned to do.

They seem to have some minor impact on suicide prevention.

Red Flag laws don't work... there are numerous memes about them too...

They infringe on law abiding citizens rights and don't work.

Piss off a Democrat and they call to get you placed on the Red Flag list... even if you did nothing more than piss them off and even if you didn't even brandish a gun when you pissed them off.

If a neighbor sees you loading a legal gun into the trunk of your car to take down to the shooting range and doesn't like it, they can call the police with a red flag complaint.

Bottom line: They don't work!!!

The following part is where abuse of the Red Flag laws cause more problems than they resolve anything...

>>>Gun rights activists argue that the laws can too easily take a person’s guns based on unproven accusations.

“The biggest issue with all these bills is due process,” Dan Reid, western director of the National Rifle Association, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “A person is going to lose their rights based on a third-party allegation. They’ve never been convicted of a crime. They’ve never been adjudicated mentally ill. That’s not how our system of justice should work.”<<<

Let's summarize where we are:

Walter says that fortifying schools is "better than what we're doing now." 

Walter also suggests that invasion of privacy is permissible because we need to "Flag them as possibly dangerous to others and watch their activity closely (both online and on the streets)."

Walter says "Identifying possible troubled students was discussed in detail in several of those videos" and Walter says "Everything needed to flag somebody was mentioned in the 3 videos I mentioned above."

As I understand it, Walter is getting his thoughts from video experts.

That's where the discussion currently stands.
