    No everyone else with a gun will take care of me then. No designated guard needed.

    You didn't do that either. A locked up gun is unless, so that's a bad idea.

    I'm sorry, unless you are a teacher in a classroom with but novice gun handling experience involved in a school shooting you have no more basis of understanding of "wtf your are talking about" than I. So stick to adult debate.
    In SD our teachers take the exact same annual training our cops do. So once again you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Thank goodness for the NRA providing a plan which would require the purchases of an untold amount of guns and ammunition all across the country. I'm so glad they have children's interests at heart, and not the interest of the gun manufacturers who stand to make an enormous profit from the NRA plan.

    Thank God the NRA is above using a tragedy such as the massacre of children to make buckets of money for the industry who produced the guns and ammunition used in the children's death.

    I understood it completely. And no, it doesn't. Explains that it is difficult for even the most trained, so therefore it would be next to impossible for the least trained. It's not a hard argument to follow.

    Don't know. But I do know there have been quite a few bombings and other such instances of violence. The thing is, violence can happen anywhere at anytime.

    The major area of concern in today's society is school safety. Armed guards would be an excellent first step towards correcting this particular concern.

    We can cross any other bridges which might present themselves when we come to them.

    While I think liberals overreact in their reliance on new laws, armed guards is also an overreaction. It too breeds an overconfidence that is false and can be as problematic. Once we go down the road of providing armed guards, there will be a lot of roads to cross, just as their is with new laws.

    Personally I think a teacher should be able to strap their irons on as they see fit.
