Well said.You say it's easy. Well lets look at that. The majority of teachers would be liberal. Would you agree? Second, how far do you think (letting " a couple of responsible ones" have guns?). Neve rmind the backlash of the so called liberals in this country, you know the ones that are anti gun? I get what you are saying but one has to look at the overall picture. Look outside the box. Just because you and I and a few others think that would be the answer ( teachers with guns ) isn't all that feasible with the majority. You see in this day and time, we as responsible gun owners, have become the minority. The media, liberals and anti guns have stave off anyone that can't and will not think for themselves, rationally or just with plain common sense. You mentioned the stabbings in China today. The way the libs think is, that no one was killed but if there was a gun involved there would have been. Get the meaning? There is some difference in the collateral damage and the shootings today. One is war, which is never good and the other is one that is not war but a peaceful town that has been erupted in the slayings of innocent children. I know what you are thinking but we are talking two different worlds. Is it so bad to stop and have sympathy for any one that does not deserve to die in anyway, form or fashion of such a young age no matter where they are from? Death is never easy and hard to take especially when it is close to home. You are 23 and hopefully have a full life ahead of you. Think wisely and diligently . Think outside the box. See things from more than one perspective. Most of all listen to all and take what you believe to be the most trusting. Merry Christmas, Happy holidays and sit straight in the saddle.
