On CNN's State of the Union, U.S. Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas was asked by Dana Bash about school shootings and replied
... because it's so random and unexpected, it's hard to prevent.
And because -- and they seem like they happen a lot, but they're still anomalous events, and they're very difficult to build a pattern behind. It's not like criminal activity, which you can target and prevent through law enforcement. This is harder. It doesn't mean there's nothing we can do.
The truth of the matter is, if we had a minimum of two armed guards or police officers at every single school in America, you would probably prevent these from here on out.
