    Given that most of the shooting in a school attack happens without warning and is over within a few minutes, rapid response is essential. Would a Police Dog under the control of a patrolling officer be effective against a shooter? I believe it would. The dog could also be outfitted with a bullet proof vest to increase it's chances of surviving. What do you think?

    Sounds better than forcing me to buy an AR from a drug dealer in the hood

    Interesting idea, but Gary Larson beat you to the punch on this one

    Big dogs in schools alone might work.....and a calming influence on students too.

    The type of dogs you train to charge after a person with a gun are not the type of dogs you have in contact with the general population.

    What would happen to children who are afraid of the dogs? I think Bengal Tigers would be more appropriate way to stop school shootings, and easy to feed since Michael Obama's food for school program has plenty of left overs.. but if a person doesn't follow the GUN FREE ZONE law and enters with a weapon, the tiger who cant read either is there to stop the shooter..

    He didn't want the Far Side to go on forever so he retired. He probably makes enough on royalties and book sales to get by.

    That's an idea worth exploring. It's expensive to train a police dog but may well be worth it.
