Armed Guard Saves School Last Week (Gun Control Freaks Wrong Again)?

I'm not anti-gun (and I support allowing trained teachers to carry in schools), but if you want to be safe, there are better, cheaper, and safer strategies than loading up on weapons and ammo. Learn to look people in the eye and talk to them. Learn not to panic, but be ready to run if the need arises. Most importantly, try to avoid unstable people and places. There is no guarantee of safety, and we will all die eventually anyway, but, for most of us in "normal" circumstances (not living in a high-crime area, not transporting valuable jewels, etc.), believing that a cache of weapons is our best defense against a world rife with hazard is nonsense.

If you'd ever been to a shooting range you'd know that ALL guns are required to be unloaded when the range is cold.

Vice President Biden unfurled his genius during a Google+ “fireside” hangout last month stating that having “armed guards in schools would be a terrible mistake.”

Really, José? Why don’t you rock up to Price Middle School in Atlanta on Monday morning and bray that insanity to the teachers and students who were spared an early grave because an armed guard took out the latest Lanza wannabe before he could waylay his peers?

Oh, I’m sorry. Y’all haven’t heard about the armed guard taking down a shooter who passed his gun through the metal detectors at an Atlanta...
