So when school is attacked, we put a team of armed guards to all school. What's next? Oh, day cares, the kids are even younger there. OK, we put an army in every day care. What next? Disney? Universal Studio? Legoland? Seaworld? Zoo?
Why don't we just make one big maximun security prison for every living beings?
And who is going to gain the most with this kind of thinking. Yes, the companies that manufactured all those assault weapons which created this problem in the first place.
Ironically there is a lot better security at Disney, Universal Studio, Legoland and Seaworld. Do they really search people that enter those areas? Would be many adults there that could defend themselves if some lunatic 20 year old showed up wanting to kill 5-10 year olds.
The opportunity often makes the criminal. It's not exactly a coincidence that schools are picked. The assailant knows the area, knows how to get there, where to change into his "assault gear", where the guard is stationed.
That's why schools need to be prepared to deal with the armed lunatic. Exactly how is the violence supposed to be scaled up? A guy that puts on body armor, has rifles, handguns, boxes of ammo is pretty serious business. What's the next step? Full blown machineguns, rocket launchers? Is that realistic? Not really. Or will we see squads of lunatics? probably not realistic either. These are usually "lone wolves" that keep away from others and aren't very social.
Fact is if a school could deal with the lonely lunatic it has come far. School shootings will never stop but school MASSACRES can stop and maybe next time it can be a guard that becomes a hero and takes down a lunatic. It's been close a few times.
