The NRA want school staff to be armed. Will throwing more guns at the probem solve it or make it worse?

it's going to take a lot to stop those insane acts as long as the killer is determined to get done. sad how it seems to happen and nothing can truly be done to prevent it.
Half of America's teachers cheat on their own aptitude tests. If this ratio remains constant we can expect half of them to cheat on fire arm safety training as well. Hence their aim will not be any better than their intellect.
I think someone should fill Batman's shoe, instill fear and all, makes me wonder if that's even possible. Fighting crime in his underwear looking gear. It would be a sight to see :)
Snoblet, the NRA did not propose arming teachers. That has been discussed in the media but that was not the NRA's proposal. The NRA advised having armed security at schools.
These wack jobs are choosing the schools, malls, and movie theaters because they have a multitude of potential victims crammed together like sardines. If the American public is disarmed the criminal element will now turn their fury upon private homes
I agree armed security is important, armed law abiding citizens are too. But, there is no singular solution. Further the POS terminal can often be hacked. Criminals and crazies don't care about gun control and do whatever it takes to do evil deeds.
Usually when a terminal is hacked it is to steal information not to manipulate information stored in a data base.
This is true, however criminals and crazies do all sorts of illogical, difficult, and illegal things to accomplish their illegal deeds. They can hack into the system, they can manipulate data, use fake ID's, etc.
Can you imagine arming teachers and then not giving them their next pay raise or passing the next school levy?
Common sense is increasingly becoming uncommon in this world.
There are times when fire must be met with fire. This is an unfortunate fact of life. It always has been and most likely always will be.
I think the motto of Washington D.C. is "Might makes right". It doesn't help when Washington D.C. is talking about cleaning up the violence on the streets, but at the same time are invading anyone with natural gas, oil, or whatever the bankers want.
Well, someone has to finance their totally-honest elections.
We don't have elections here in America. We have the illusion of a democracy, but all our senators, congressmen and Presidents are appointed by the wealthy elite behind the scenes. Wonder why Wash. D.C. never acts in our best interest? Now you do.
