    Speaking as a son of a former Special-Ed counselor, I'd say we need both. :\

    I say counselor. Why have someone neutralize the situation with bullets when you can just as easily have someone tell a gunman to "calm down" and talk some reason to them.

    I imagine that works well against people who would shoot automatic weapons at public locales.

    From elementary school to high school, we always had like 2 police officers on campus. And that's how most of the schools in the area were barring the private ones which I can't speak for.

    Schools are remarkably safe, so counselors are actually useful.

    But, we still need the 100% w/enforcement background checks AND the ban on civilian ownership of assault weapons.
    The counselors, I think are needed....if I had the services of one back in the previous century, things may have been better...
    The conservatives/libertarians are probably against all of this.
    And, I hold that our schools can be safe without guns and bullets, as opposed to the NRA tenets.

    It's just so cute that anyone wanting to self-defend with a firearm is some NRA stooge.

    Can I accuse all leftists of being idiotic ACLU mouthpieces?

    I think most of the mass shootings have occurred at places with Counselors and most schools have counselors,at least they did when I was in school. I would prefer that there be plenty of well trained gun toting security officers or even several or more teachers with concealed carry permits depending on the size of school campus and how many separate buildings are on that campus.One armed security guard or officer is useless if a shooting happens on the opposite side of the campus.The goal of having armed personnel at schools should be deter mass shootings and if worst comes to worst then their goal should be is to minimize the casualties by being able to quickly take out that individual who is trying to massacre the school.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Diddn't the last shooter steal his weapon and the other shooters have a legal right to buy their firearms and therefore passed background checks? So it seems that the discusion of back ground checks is irrelelvent to the how to stop or prevent mass shooting debate.


    AND the ban on civilian ownership of assault weapons.
    Can you actually define an assault weapon?


    And, I hold that our schools can be safe without guns and bullets, as opposed to the NRA tenets.
    All these mass shootings have occurred in places where people are generally disarmed(even the fort hoot shooting). So apparently you are full of **** when you say a school can be safe without guns and bullets.

    Re: Counselors or Security Officers

    Counselors don't solve much, so extra protection is needed. Some teens are just confused beyond fix due to family bring up. We should stop worrying about the guns so much and worry more on the way families are raising their children. Strong, well placed morals would fix all of this.
