I do put that into account. That's why i mentioned that they should also train the teachers to handle a gun. Even if they're wearing body armor, there are spot which the body armor do not cover. Like the face, finger. I just saying they should though. I don't think they could as it would take a lot of time and money.

They could train the teacher to be prepare in that situation. If the teachers are trained to be prepare for these situation, as soon as they heard gun shot. They know what they need to do if they are armed.

Of course i understand that you don't become invincible but having a gun gives more chance of them surviving rather than unarmed. A school full of unarmed teachers and students help the killers having an easier time killing everyone. If the teacher were armed, it will hold back the Killers a little bit and give them time to call the police. And yes people panic, but someone who is train will react to the situation quicker than someone who are never prepare for it at all.



Agreed. When someone has training in self defense, then they'll be better prepared to handle this kind of situation. Our military sends average people to fight but they've had training so they know what to expect and how to react in any situation. As somebody with 6 1/2 years of Martial Arts experience, I think the benefits of training teachers far outweighs the risks.

I also believe that they need armed security guards at the doors of the schools. If somebody knows that they're not the only one there who are armed, they'll be a lot less likely to try to hurt anyone.

Dosn't really seem right to say 'rest in peace' for children so young. How messed up do you have to be to want to shoot a bunch of kids?

@miserykitsune I agree with you, but safety for the children comes before their profession. They just need to know how to aim, hold and safety of using a gun. They don't need to actually do what the Army recruit/soldier does like running, army training and such to keep in shape. They just need to know how to hold and aim a gun. Quite simple, no actual hard work is needed.

Well the teacher can also just bring a gun to school and start shooting everyone, right? There isn't really any difference. If the teacher just go ballistic, he can bring a gun he just bought to school and start shooting everyone. Which is why other teacher have guns to stop that from happening.

Oh and i get it now, you thought i mean the teacher carry guns around like soldiers. Yes, that would look inappropriate. I meant the teacher, hide the gun in his locked drawer to be prepare. Like how some people hide guns in their drawer in case a robber come to their house.

@Byakuya386 Exactly, it would help stop school shooting case from happening. But the only thing is that they think an arm security guard make school look like a prison. So they don't want to do it. I don't think it would cost that much to hire a train security guard to help them in situation like this massacre.They care more about their image than the safety of the children.

They need trained and armed security not like the security in High School. The security in High School are just pathetic. They can't even stop two teenager from fighting. They ain't doing much if someone decided to shoot everyone in the school show up.

Correct the numbers. 27 died, but 20 were children, 6 were adults, and the last one is the killer himself who committed suicide.

I find this to be the most disturbing shooting I've seen so far, which in my memory has been a string of fairly disturbing shootings beginning with Columbine. Can't stop dwelling on it today, it's very upsetting to think about what happened to those kids.

You can't just teach every teacher Krav Maga. You can't just go around firing elderly teachers who are unable to fight either. If you're such a well trained martial artist, you'd obviously know that your martial arts is useless against a gun unless by a miracle - the gunman decides to walk close to you. Besides, these are teachers, not people who go to the gym everyday to stay fit in case of a terrorist attack. I've been going through MMA and Krav Maga longer than you have, but that's going to do both of us no good at all once bullets get riddled into our skulls.

I like your idea of security guards though. A plan of implementing guards into schools doesn't sound that bad. However, this is Earth. It is filled with humans, and a lot of corrupt humans at that. A perfectly disguised psychopath could very well act like a complete nice and sane person to become a guard to kill children in the school. No matter how many screens and background checks we run, all we are left with is data such as clean high school records and no criminal records during adulthood.

No idea can solve the matter of keeping children safe to a 100% success rate. There will always be a defect.

This is an unfortunate event.

I'm surprised the US government hasn't considered outlawing guns yet considering the frequency of this type of thing happening in their states.

Outlawing guns would only make things even worse.
