No amount of evidence will ever overturn what we all KNOW IN OUR HEARTS



Not that I am advocating, but, if these nutjobs knew that all teachers and staff were armed, he would NEVER have shown up there. Same with the Aurora movie theater, that nutjob would not walk in a place where others are armed and start his crap. There is some validity in OP's statement. Not that there would be only 2 dead at the school, but that he would never have picked a school.



JINX!

Only MPs are armed on an Army base, and how many Mps there are per square mile depends on the size of the base. Every soldier isnt armed 24/7 except on deployments and dispite Afgan soliders killing our guys right and left, they never massacre them, because they are all armed, always..

Not to mention the quickest I've ever been able to get ammo from the ASP was 6.5 hours.

"Later research, however, found no reduction in Kennesaw burglary rates [but not other violent crime] when the figures were re-examined over a longer time period."



I know crazy right.
You would think that everyone would be murdering everyone with all those guns.

It's from the Wikipedia article already linked. Check the footnotes for citations.

Are police officers not armed already?


Up until Newtown...not in schools. At least here. Only tasers guns.

The police officers you are referring to...yes. They are always armed.

I believe he is referring to "school resource officers"

This idiotic idea of giving teachers guns is probably a backhanded way to promote homeschooling.
