We can't afford paying armed guards or police and metal detectors at every school entrance in the nation,BUT,allowing armed school employees who have carry permits costs nothing,and puts armed GOOD people right where they would be needed all the time the school is open,close to the children that need protecting. It's a PROVEN-to-work method.(Israel does it,and it works there,against real terrorists.) Having armed teachers (and other school employees)is like having plainclothes police scattered all around the school,at no cost. it's the smart thing to do.

Yes, we can. My local schools have a principal and vice for each school, and there are usually three school in a complex, each with admin staff. The school board has WAY too many employees. Cut administrative costs to pay security. Duh.

Columbine had armed guards. they were worthless.
One was out to lunch,and the killers KNEW that.
Guards are visible and KNOWN,and will be the first to be shot.
Which has already happened at a US courthouse,that had armed guards and metal detectors at the entrance. A killer shot the guard and then walked though the detector,shooting people until an armed plainclothes person appeared and shot him.

There are now calls from the Left for gun control legislation in response to Adam Lanza's unconscionable mass killing of innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary. However, very few people seem to be asking the most basic question of all before getting started: What gun control legislation could have stopped Adam Lanza?

The answer is "none."

Let's consider a few alternatives:

1) The school was already a "gun free zone;" so obviously that wasn't effective. Of course, the sort of people who would respect a "gun free zone" in the first place are the very ones you wouldn't have to worry...
