AT BERRENDO MID-SCHOOL YESTERDAY--- BUT AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT THERE'S LOTS OF TALK ABOUT HOW TO PREVENT ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING - AND -- A LOT OF THAT CENTERS ON NEW MEXICO GUN LAWS. NEWS 13'S ALEX GOLDSMITH REPORTS --- WITH THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION CONVENING IN LESS THAN A WEEK -- GUN LAWS -- COULD END UP CENTER STAGE. SANCHEZ WITH AN ISSUE LIKE THIS I THINK THE IMMEDIATE REACTION IS WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP THIS. KREBS: IT'S GOING TO PUT THE ISSUE ON THE AGENDA. UNM POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSORS GABE SANCHEZ AND TIM KREBS SAY TRAGEDY IN ROSWELL WILL MEAN TALK IN SANTA FE. LAST YEAR THE MASS SHOOTINGS AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT LED LAWMAKERS HERE TO BRING UP PROPOSALS FOR THINGS LIKE INCREASED BACKGROUND CHECKS AND A STATEWIDE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. BUT IT WASN'T JUST GUN CONTROL THAT CAME UP. I DID THINK ABOUT THE BILL I PROPOSED AND COULD IT HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE SANDIA PARK REPUBLICAN SUE WILSON BEFFORT INTRODUCED A BILL LAST YEAR THAT WOULD ALLOW SOME SCHOOL EMPLOYEES TO CARRY CONCEALED WEAPONS ON CAMPUS. THE PROPOSAL DIED IN COMMITTEE BUT SHE'S CONSIDERING BRINGING UP THE IDEA AGAIN. IT WOULD JUST BE POTENTIALLY A DETERRENT TO SOMEONE THAT MIGHT ASSUME THAT THERE COULD BE PROTECTION. WE'RE NOT IN SUPPORT OF IT. STATE TEACHERS UNION PRESIDENT STEPHANIE LY HOPES LAWMAKERS TAKE A DIFFERENT APPROACH. 5656 WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE'RE STARTING TO INVEST COUNSELORS IN ALL OUR SCHOOLS, SOCIAL WORKERS SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS DESPITE ALL THE TALK, BECAUSE THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR, THERE'S NOT A LOT OF OPTIMISM FROM THE EXPERTS THAT BIG CHANGES WILL GET THROUGH. TIM KREBS AS FOR THIS SESSION, I STILL THINK IT WOULD BE UNLIKELY. GABE SANCHEZ  MAYBE DOWN THE ROAD WHEN WE GET BACK TO A FULL SESSION I THINK YOU'LL SEE A LOT OF BILLS GENERATED ON THE ISSUE. ANOTHER IDEA THAT'S NOW LAW IN OTHER STATES --- CALIFORNIA, MINNESOTA AND MASSACHUSETTS PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST PARENTS IF GUNS AREN'T PROPERLY LOCKED UP AROUND KIDS. IT'S UNCLEAR IF THAT WOULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS CASE. A COUPLE OF ROSWELL PARENTS SUGGESTED METAL DETECTORS BE SET UP AT THE ENTRANCES TO SCHOOLS. THAT'S ALREADY DONE AT SOME SCHOOLS IN BIG CITIES IN OTHER STATES. AS WE NOTED EARLIER, COUNSELING WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS AND FACULTY AND AT BERRENDO MID SCHOOL AND OTHERS IN THE COMMUNITY WHO NEED IT. AND THE IMPACT OF THIS KIND OF ATTACK IS NOT JUST LIMITED TO ROSWELL. A UNM CHILD PSYCHIATRIST SAYS CHILDREN ELSEWHERE WHO SEE THE COVERAGE ON TV OR EVEN JUST HEAR ABOUT THE SHOOTINGS, CAN BE AFFECTED TOO: DR. SCOTT CARROLL: YOUNG CHILDREN ESPECIALLY CAN'T DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN YOU KNOW, I'M HERE, AND THAT EVENT WAS THERE IN A DIFFERENT PLACE. DR. SCOTT CARROLL - 3:01 THE FIRST KEY IS THE REASSURE THEM THAT THEY'RE SAFE. PHYSICAL SAFETY IS VERY IMPORTANT DR. CARROLL SAYS IT'S IMPORTANT TO WATCH CHILDREN WHO MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO ALL THIS FOR SIGNS LIKE DIFFICULTY SLEEPING AND NIGHTMARES.

AS INVESTIGATORS PIECE TOGETHER WHAT LED TO YESTERDAY'S SHOOTING... SOME ARE ASKING IF NEW GUN LAWS WOULD PREVENT SOMETHING LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING IN THE FUTURE. WITH LESS THAN A WEEK LEFT BEFORE THE 2014 LEGISLATIVE SESSION... THE TRAGEDY IN ROSWELL IS ALREADY SPURRING TALK IN SANTA FE. SAMANTHA MCDONALD IS IN THE NEWSPLEX WITH MORE. LAST YEAR THE NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT MASS SHOOTINGS SPARKED PROPOSED LAWS HERE TRYING TO BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS, REQUIRE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BUY GUNS AT GUN SHOWS. THERE WAS ALSO A PROPOSAL BACKED BY SANDIA PARK REPUBLICAN SUE WILSON BEFFORT TO ALLOW SOME SCHOOL EMPLOYEES TO CARRY CONCEALED WEAPONS ON CAMPUS. SHE SAYS SHE'S CONSIDERING REINTRODUCING IT IN THE WAKE OF THE ROSWELL SCHOOL SHOOTING.  IT WOULD JUST BE POTENTIALLY A DETERRENT TO SOMEONE THAT MIGHT ASSUME THAT THERE COULD BE PROTECTION. STATE TEACHERS UNION AFT NEW MEXICO TELLS NEWS 13 IT OPPOSES THAT IDEA. THEY'D LIKE TO SEE MORE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES IN SCHOOLS INCLUDING INCREASED STAFFING OF SCHOOL COUNSELORS, PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SOCIAL WORKERS TO TRY AND IDENTIFY AND HELP POTENTIAL SHOOTERS BEFORE THEY PULL THE TRIGGER. DESPITE THE RENEWED TALK, UNM POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSORS GABE SANCHEZ AND TIM KREBS TELL NEWS 13 THEY DON'T EXPECT ANY MAJOR CHANGES TO GET APPROVED BECAUSE THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR. THERE'S ALSO THE SUGGESTION OF WHAT'S GOING ON IN OTHER STATES LIKE CALIFORNIA, MINNESOTA AND MASSACHUSETTS. IT'S THE IDEA OF CRIMINALLY CHARGING PARENTS IF GUNS AREN'T PROPERLY LOCKED UP AROUND KIDS. IT'S UNCLEAR IF THAT WOULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS CASE. SUGGESTIONS FROM SOME ROSWELL PARENTS ARE TO SET UP METAL DETECTORS AT THE ENTRANCES TO SCHOOLS. THAT IS ALREADY BEING DONE AT SOME SCHOOLS IN BIG CITIES IN ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
