Doc, technically speaking, the NRA's call for police at the schools is better than arming a school employee; just because a person is issued a permit and a weapon does not mean they will be able to keep a cool head and react to the situation with deliberation. Although as a stop gap there should be some procedure as you suggest, these people have to be able to be mentally tough enough to take the assailant on without hesitation, and I think that secretaries, custodians and teachers are not always the people you want to depend on in a gun battle. It takes a special kind of determination to stop a violent criminal, and I just think the people you arm should be dedicated to that task and have the demonstrated ability to act appropriately.
