If teachers and principals are armed and trained to defend themselves during a school attack there would be fewer casualties and less attempts to attack schools.
Fact: Crime rates decrease when the people are better armed.
It is time we gave our teachers the ability to defend themselves and stop pretending like a door buzzer is enough of a defense. Take a stand for school safety. Arm the teachers and principals today. A gun in every classroom will protect our students from massacres like the one in CT today.
I agree with it...if anything it may make a person think twice before a shooter decides to go shooting.
Also, in case nobody knew this, or it may have been already mentioned, CT is a a "shall issue" state for gun permits. Which means, if someone wants a gun permit, they have to show just cause to want one. Connecticut statutes contain provision that allow law enforcement officials to pre-emptively seize a person's firearms without a warrant or court order, when they have probable cause that the person may either be mentally unstable or intends to use the weapons to commit a crime.
I know this does nothing to lessen the pain of those babies being shot and killed, but it shows even with gun control, incidents like these will always happen. Most if noit all of these mass shootings have been in "pistol-free zones" Bad guys do not care about what the laws say. People can be killed with guns, knives (as seen in China where 22 kids were slashed.) Its a horrible senseless tragedy, and the nation and the gun control nazi's need to stop bickering on tightening gun laws, and start enforcing the ones we have. I am all for restricting and banning automatic weapons as there is no need for them that I can see unless you are military or police. But we do not need to ban guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. We have the right to defend ourselves in anyway we see fit. If its by a gun so be it, or if we decide to a knife or a rolling pin so be it. We all cannot have the luxury of having the police minutes away. Guns will always exist, there never be a time a gun will not be availble. As the saying goes...
"If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns."
