The argument that the police won't know who the shooter is if teachers are walking around schools with guns is bogus also. A good guy will always put his gun down quickly.
20 children shot up in a locked room is ****ing BS. The principal or one of the other teachers could have wasted the bastard within a minute. Instead the a-hole had 10 minutes.
I own a ranch in a small community and it's being discussed to arm several of the experienced teachers who are hunters/ranchers and have experience with guns. I'm sure they will have to go under further training (as they should) but if some son of a b**** walks into my community school the second bullet fired might just be one going into the shooters head.
Give me a break. The Denver cops blew away an old man who was holding a coke can a few years ago. Cell phone? Dead meat. In case you haven't been watching the news, lately, cops are more trigger happy than ever. Some cop in Texas cornered an unarmed suspect after a car chase and shot him 41 times. How many reloads is that? And I'm sure cops get more firearms training than anybody. I doubt the "good guy" would even get the chance to put down his gun.
