These kids aren't dumb I wouldn't be surprised if the next school shooting (god forbid) starts with the armed officer getting killed

And by the way, this already happens in thousands and thousands of schools around the country. Every school I went to through high school had an armed police officer.

You're such a phagg0t

Here's come current stats for you

The point remains. The violent crime rate is much higher in the UK than in the US. You were wrong, shut up.

Yeah, since you're baseless "what-if" scenarios are really compelling.

This is a band aid solution and it solves nothing.

Shootings are made in gun-free zones for a reason. Less resistance.

Let me know what weapons cops bring to defend a shooting. Thanks.

MY middle school had an armed police officer. My HS had two to three.

There was an armed police officer on duty, on-campus the day of the Columbine shootings. I always wonder what he was doing.

I don't even know what this means. Shootings are made everywhere - and by inclusivity they happen in gun-free zones too.

The reasons they happen in school isn't because there are no guards. It is because that is generally the world the offenders live in. Same with work place and university shootings.

If gun-free zones were preferable because there is less resistance then you would expect to see more people (outsiders) taking advantage of them. Instead they take place there because that is what the offenders know. And they probably have some real or imagined problem with that institution or other people in it.

Great job!

Uh, did you not read the story about an armed guard at a school disarming a student in Atlanta? And that's just one of many. So it's not a what-if since it happens on a regular basis.

Your argument is invalid.

It's easy to understand. If there's less resistance, they can kill more people. Check out the mall shooting in Oregon where an off duty cop detered the shooter because he had a gun.

You make a good point obviously though. I just think you live in a fantasy world where guns will disappear.

I was being a little bit facetious.

I don't live in that world. I don't think guns should disappear nor do I think it is possible. But reforms and changes in cultural attitudes should decrease both the number of guns and peoples desire to own one. It is a long wrong, but steps should be made in that direction.

If you think it is a shame, then you have a problem with it? It shouldn't be necessary and if it has gotten to the point where it is then you should want to fix the problem at the source - not have armed guards roaming around the place.

So, what you're saying is that you want these Sharia patrol guys to have guns..?

Virgina Tech had it's own SWAT team to go along with it's own police force. Columbine had two armed security officers. Let's not pretend armed guards are going to be the ultimate deterrent. It's a good tool to have but it needs to go along with gun reforms

Your argument is invalid.

How many of them were armed guards and/or CHL/CCW holders? That's where your argument holds no weight.
