Can people be any more stupid? If people would use that tiny thing between their ears we would all be better off. First of all schools don't need a $100K per year cop in his little uniform at the entrance. Mr. Nut job would look for him first. He would be easy to spot, get past him, blow him away and then the hunting would be easy. Train and arm many if not all staff in each school or if the morons want to go with a cop, he should be in civilian clothing. Mr. Nut job would not know who is ready to blow his f*&%ing head off. Problem mostly solved.

Arm the teachers. A guard will be sitting, standing, or roaming around for hours, days, and weeks on end, bored out of his/her mind, just like the air marshals. The teachers work there, and it would be cheaper. Another option is to have volunteer armed citizens who are concealed carry permittees from the local community. I'd be willing to patrol a local school, say one or two hours a week.

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
