    I was referring to other measures.

    Poor reasoning. If a shooter is going to take out the uniformed guard because he is armed do you really think if all teachers are carrying he will have any trouble identifying which person in a classroom of 6 yr olds has the gun?

    A teacher doesn't have time to patrol the school grounds like a guard can. I think the guard may be more of a preventive action while the carrying teacher would be reactive action.

    Poor reasoning. The shooter would not know which teachers are armed, presumably even as a student of the school and CERTAINLY as an outsider. If you think a uniformed guard in the open obstructs someone intent on mass murder, you're not thinking right. Shoot the guard first, end of defense.

    A teacher(s) needn't patrol. When the shots start going off, maneuver and engage.

    The objective cannot be prevention - that's impossible. The objective must be mitigation and immediate effective response. Like an ambush, return fire immediately or everyone dies.

    I'm guessing if this were a parent of a murdered child suing, you would all be saying they're trying to profit off their child's death.

    either way I agree it's nothing to sue over since it doesn't hurt the school, just taxpayers

    just hope the child never finds out about this

    So now we have a surviving child's parents looking to cash in on a 'forseeable harm' claim- nice.
    I wonder why they didn't just shoot for a bajillion dollars

    This isn't a law enforcement issue, but a security one. I have experience in security as a paratroop and as a rent-a-cop. And I can assure you, there is no way to prevent a maniac from shootin' up a place. We get court houses shot up, exactly what kind of division-level security do you expect at schools? The only thing we can really do is respond in a timely manner.

    Hopefully, they will come up with some reforms that do actually better protect students.
    Bull****, this lawyer is filing this suit because he likes money.

    Maneuver and engage. Ambush.

    Like anyone could foresee a lunatic waltzing into a school and offing 6-year-olds.

    As usual these ambulance chasing lawyers really live up to their dirtbag motto.

    Some of those teachers might be ex-military, others simply aggressive. Anyway, my life is an action film, especially some parts, if you get what I mean.
