Bottom line everyone doesn't need a gun at our schools. Competent armed security personnel and police can handle attackers and would reduce these tragedies. The guy in Connecticut knew no one would be shooting back at him, those kids didn't have a chance. Even if the teacher had a weapon if the guy put a bullet in her forehead before she could get a shot off having a weapon with a full clip would be useless. Several police officers are killed by gunfire every year and they are armed and have vests. More guns in society is not the answer, more guns would take verbal and physical confrontations and turn them into shootouts. BTW, I respect everyones right to have guns but school security should be at the top of our discussion, not the second amendment and whether obama is going to knock on our doors and take our AKs and AR-15s away. Its selfish and disrespectful to the victims of this tragedy to focus on politics after this situation.
