If you put armed personnel in schools, they more than likely will be the first taken out. But I do agree that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. So maybe some of the staffers at various places do need too get trained and allow them to carry and conceal. The sad fact is the attackers don't put any value on human life, not even their own. At the point they arm themselves and try to carry out their twisted thoughts they are no longer humans in my opinion, they are a threat that is needs to be stopped. Only the law abiding ones are the victims in this. Why not put weapons in their hands? As far as banning assault weapons and such, all I know is law or no law if these creeps want to shoot up a school or a mall they will find a way to get one. It won't stop them from trying. We need to STOP them from DOING.
