The Israeli Method
Read this post at the Silicon Graybeard's blog. Understand that muslims love to kill Israeli/Jewish children, as they did at a school in France, and as they did with the Fogel family in Israel. They brag about it, celebrate it by passing out candy to everyone in Gaza and elsewhere.
Knowing this, and knowing that there have been ZERO mass school shootings in Israel since 1974, I think we can safely say that arming teachers and other staff as they do in Israel works. It prevents the killings that would certainly otherwise take place.
Sure, with whack-jobs who don't care if they die wandering around, it is possible some children would still be killed, but far fewer if there were armed staff present to shoot such animals. Those doing it for "fame" however, would be forced to choose a different venue - like a college campus where guns are not permitted, or perhaps a Democratic Party office. Some "gun free zone", where guns are banned. Just the sight of a teacher with an M1 carbine like the one pictured above would be enough to send most sick shooters somewhere else.
Fortunately, even some of the liberals talking about the Newtown massacre are talking about having armed people present in schools now. Perhaps they can be convinced that arming some teachers would be a good idea.
By the way, the high school I attended back in New York (Class of '67) had a shooting range in the basement. The biology teacher, Mr. Marshall, was the coach for our high school rifle team, which competed statewide, back then. It was never mentioned, but I believe he carried 24/7.
