  •  So the guy walks in with his semi-automatic (23+ / 0-)

    and his 100 bullet clip in place.  The teacher is supposed to ignore her 20-35 students, find the key, unlock the drawer, load the gun with the bullets stored nearby--unless she is really stupid enough to have a loaded gun available in an unlocked drawer--and face the shooter--who is by now reloading so he can shoot another 100 kids.  

    Or maybe the armed guard who is in the gym will get to the classroom on the other side of the building in time to save the third or fourth classroom from the shooter.  

    Or we give everyone in the building a weapon, including the 70-year-old substitute teacher, the volunteers who are working in the hallways with small groups of kids and the 8-month-pregnant secretary.  And they can all shoot up the halls and see who gets hit first.  Of course, since the shooter has that 100 bullet clip, they are all dead before they can put down their books/phones/ sandwich/ child and figure out where the gun went.

    More guns means more people die.  If  you don't see that,  you are fooling yourself.
