IM all for having ARMED MEN do the job,thats needed...but,MAYBE not police,but retired MILITARY could and would do that job...

Yesterday a school shooting was quickly stopped before it escalated further thanks to an armed guard being on campus.

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
