    Seems like a rock and a hard place to me.

    Folks don't want anyone carrying a gun in schools, but there is no way to stop a shooter without having a gun.

    Use common sense, even if just for today. It is not as if the court will say to the school board (or any other gov't officials) that they must sacrifice any personal wealth, property or position of power. This is simply taking general tax money that would otherwise be allocated for education, improved school security or other public services and giving it to lawyers and the parents that happen to have had children in the one school chosen by the mass killer. It helps nobody but the greedy that seek their neighbor's money, solves no problem and reduces the chances that any corrective action will be taken since they have a judgment against future tax revenue. If insurance is involved then that cost will likely be spread to all schools as increased premium costs to recover the amount of the judgement.
