I also stated along with armed security you need security additions to the physcial plant, like cameras the first tenant of security is the ability to see. Along with any other physical changes necessary.
You state you dont worry about entering a facility with an armed guard...ok I buy that...so whats the alternative if armed trained security doesnt worry an attacker a few armed teachers in a classroom with 30plus 6 yrs will ? either that or do nothing and leave it like it is with no armed anything and we already know what that gets us right ?
We are faced with a dilemna of either do nothing and be damned or try something that will at the minimum help. School shooters are not going to disappear on thier own and to just allow them to keep walking in to schools unchallenged to me is out right criminal.
Im stating that arming a few teachers that are going to be in classrooms with a bunch of kids that they cant just leave is worthless. A teacher in a classroom cannot "SEE" anything cannot see anything before something happens to prevent it.
So either do nothing or do something that can possibly work...arming a few teachers wont.
You need security personel that are well trained, retired law enforcement, military. They need cameras to see all pertinet possible places of ingress..if someone does get in without them seeing and they hear gunfire after immediately dialing 911 they can move unhindered by a class full of kids and do what they can. There are no guarantees and ive said that more than once..and its not foolproof by any stretch...but what is the alternative? do what weve been doing which is NOTHING and continue the open door access to our kids, far easier access than we allow in courthouses and many other buildings..

One of you will end up here next!
2) active shooters have-in at least 90% of past cases-folded up and died or killed themselves when confronted by any armed resistance
3) since the active shooter is the instigator of violence, chances are the active shooter will kill or maim at least one or two victims, however having armed response closer to the start of the violence has been proven to save lives in almost every case where there was an armed response
no solution is going to stop all active shooter casualties but armed staff members has the best chance of LIMITING innocents dying
