  •  Excellent diary. Tipped and Rec'd for the facts.. (4+ / 0-)

    that even the best and most experienced, still have a percentage rate that might be even greater by those that are not as trained and whose lack of experience could cause very serious damage where it otherwise would not have been a serious of a situation with said results.  How many people in a crisis mode would think of just what is behind that target they are aiming at and shooting?  Will there be any damage from a bullet going though a wall or doorway, or down a hallway?  Will the bullet ricochet off of something and travel to an unintended place?  Is it the real threat that one is firing at, or maybe a mistake and not the real perpetrator of the violence?  

    Do we really want our teachers using their resources to start working in a stress mode of "if and when", instead of just doing what they do best and are there to do which is just teaching our children?  These are very important considerations that many professionals always are thinking about if and when they need to use a firearm in any situation and also when you have the responsibility of either being an L.E.O (Law Enforcement Officer) or just have the right and privilege to carry concealed in public with a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) license to do so.

    Very intense.  Lots of food for thought for all, firearm owners, and non owners.
