  •  Concealed weapon = dead guard. (1+ / 0-)

    Both VA Tech and Columbine had armed guards.

    Useless against a heavily armed attacker. Totally useless.

    Maybe you want to hire a tactical SWAT Team for every school.

    Duty cycle = 0.000000001%.

    Compared with locking away guns and running tight licensing so paranoid schizophrenics get little to no access to them.... That's cheap and easy to implement and it works.

    •  I totally agree ... (0+ / 0-)

      that securing guns in homes and keeping guns away from paranoid schizophrenics are absolutely necessary.  But I vehemently disagree that armed guards are "totally useless" against an armed attacker.  If that were true, there'd be no armed guards anywhere.  And I'd rather at least have a chance against an attacker as opposed to having no chance whatsoever; that'd be absolute suicide.

      •  I have worked at three sites (0+ / 0-)

        where angry or deranged attackers murdered armed guards.

        At one of these the guards did respond effectively. It is a large military installation.

        Really, unless you have your weapon out and ready to fire, you're nothing but the first target when a heavily armed attacker comes in.
