I read about this Texas school several days ago. Their main reason for having concealed carry was that the nearest law enforcement was 20 minutes (miles) away.

Texas is big and in some areas, distances to help are far away. Same with stores - these people in the great area of Texas only travel such distances one a week or once every two weeks.

If you want privacy, Texas has the land to provide that but you give up convenience to law enforcement, hospitals, etc..

In crowded and densely populated CT the response time by first responders wasn't fast enough.

It works for smaller areas also! I mean, just look at Israel. They haven't had a school massacre since they armed the teachers, I believe it was in 1974!
