We went through this same drill after 9/11. The idea of arming airline pilots was the cotrovery of they day and is now common place. I'd say the results makes the argument. controlled access and trained armed personnel guarding our schools will be equally effective.

A new Gallup poll shows the majority of Americans believe armed police stationed at schools would be the most effective way to prevent and stop school shootings. They also believe spending more money on the mental healthcare system would help prevent another Sandy Hook.

Americans rate the potential effectiveness of a ban on assault and semi-automatic guns...
