School shootings - the focus is on response, not prevention

There is a constant thread of school violence in the US, yet all the reactions relate to rapid response - warning systems, armed police being able to get there fast. In every other coiuntry which has had such incidents - from Australia to the United Kingdom, the response has been uniform, but very different from the US. Prevention has been the key tool addressed.
