After the terrorist attack of 911 did we arm airline pilots or flight attendants? No, we formed the TSA. Their mission was to “prevent” any guns, knives, bombs or bomb making materials from entering our aircraft. While it is not fool proof it has been proven proficient enough to avoid any major disaster in any aircraft worldwide. So, instead of arming our school teachers why not form a TSA type of facility at the entrance to our schools. This would “prevent” guns, or any type of weapon from entering the school and give police and other first responders time to act to the situation outside the school. While it may be an inconvenience to some, saving one life would be worth the effort.
