    North On Shooting

    From The Office of Lewis North in Columbus, Ohio I'd like to express my sincere regret that Corliss happened. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those that were affected. I would hope that considerable support be given to them in their time of hurt and mourning. Going forward, I think that now national focus should be on preventing these disasters before they happen. Heightened school security, updated procedures in the event of an active shooter, and offer more psychological help to those who need it.
