Plus, we need to emphasize again and again that this was already a gun-free zone. The law already forbids guns anywhere near a school, let alone inside it.

Or take the Fort Hood shootings. Not even a crowd of soldiers can defend themselves if they are forbidden to carry weapons. They had no way to defend themselves until a brave police officer arrived on the scene. How much less can school children defend themselves, when their teachers, gym instructors, principal, and everyone else is deprived of any means of defense? How will it help to expand that deprivation even further?

It was the same with the Dennie’s shooting in Carson City, where the unarmed Guardsmen were sitting ducks. You will not find a similar situation anytime in Israel to that or Ft. hood because all of their soldiers are always armed and equipped with ammo. We havre been PCed into committing acts of walking around with “kick me” signs tatooed on our backsides.
