    And an important point.......the mass shooters to this point commit suicide, surrnder or run away as soon as they meet any armed resistance....so the odds are it would not be a gun fight....

    It is asking a lot of anyone to confront a armed assailant no matter the weapon.....we now know that 4 deputies refused to confront the shooter....could a teacher ....any teacher do worse? The first thing that needs to be considered is the fact that a teacher would be more motivated to take action...they are not outside the school able to hide behind a police car. They are inside with the shooter.....thus to protect their own life as well as the lives of their students they would be very motivated....and even if they failed...they would slow down the shooter at the very least and thus save lives...the more armed teachers the better...plus the teachers have intimate knowledge of the school...the floor plan etc. they would know where to go, where to take cover and shoot back etc.etc. and so on and so forth. Ax yoself....would you rather hide under a desk praying the police will get there before the shooter gets you? Or would you rather your teacher had a gun to at least be able to do something to save your life...many,many students have died waiting for the police to arrive...as has been stated it takes the police on the average about 8 mins. to get to the scene....a shooter can kill a lot of people in 8 minutes...but if has to deal with some armed teachers....a whole different story. Try and use some common sense people.

    Lookee here..........we have a long history of sending teenagers into combat with not that much training....we could do the same with the most eligible students....not that complicated...just requires a little logic and common sense....select a few teachers who have the best aptitude for handling firearms as well as a select group of students...train them, arm them and I guarantee you that any school which does that will not have any mass killings ...the crazed shooter if he dares go to such a school would be stopped very quickly.

    If I were a student I would feel much safer knowing some of my fellow students and teachers are armed and trained to intervene....much more so than praying and hoping the police can arrive in time to stop this guy....time and again we see the scenario of waiting on the cops does not turn out well.

    The liberals always want to pretend they have the moral high ground...the problem is their morals are skewered.

    You are on the mark....make the school room doors bullet proof with good locks...add a armed teacher to the classroom....and that would diminish the threat tremendously....the shooter knowing he only has a few mins. before the cops arrive and confronted with armed teachers/students in a locked down and bullet resistant classroom would be obstacles that he could not overcome....just American know how folks...a little common sense and pragmatism goes a long way. No need for this issue to be poitized so that some politicans can prentend they are trying to solve the problem by makeing stupid suggestions aka do way with the second amendment. Look at the drug situation and all the laws against drugs...yet our society is inundated with them....anytime there is a demand someone will be there to fullfill the demand...a lot of money to be made by nefarious elements if the 2nd amendment was nullified.

    I would say that the so called school resource officers(security guards) should require some military training if there are vets available and that want the job. Yes...a good idea...along with arming qualified students and teachers....a mix that would ensure the safety of the majority of students......might be some collateral damage....but it would reduce the casualties tremendously. Tell the liberals either to join us or get the hell out of the way....understanding that many of these liberal politicians do not even send their kids to public schools.

    We waste billions of dollars bussing ghetto kids to suburban schools where they all too often are not there to get an education....but I digress....anyhow....it would not be that expensive to arm students and teachers...many of them already have weapons and the training could be on a voluntary basis....every community has people that could train the students and teachers in regards to how to handle a weapon and the best tactics to use. I am sure many of them would do that on a voluntary basis...it could be done...and in a very economic manner.

    Too many liberals have a gun phobia.....kids would get used to the idea very quickly....they are very adaptable as anyone who has been around kids understands. They could deputize the armed students and give them badges....even little kids understand that folks with badges carry guns...no big deal.
