  •  Detriment to safety (1+ / 0-)

    If the armed guard takes money away from therapeutic intervention for the troubled students that every school has, to guard against horrors so rare that they make worldwide news, yes, that reduces safety.

    Introducing dangerous machinery has risks, too, small and controllable but significantly nonzero.

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.

    •  You are thinking only of the mass shootings, (0+ / 0-)

      which are indeed, and thankfully, rare.

      On the other hand, There is daily violence in many of our high schools. I know, because I went to one. You can try your "therapeutic intervention" with armed gang members and other assorted thugs, but me, I want them arrested. I would argue most people do. Now some kids like to go to school with a whole bunch of criminals all around them, but I hated it. They should have removed many more of those "kids" that were in my school. It wasn't fair that we had to live in fear like that.

      I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.
