The only way to deter a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Thankfully, some schools are catching on.
From BizPac Review:
Amid all the hysteria over gun control in the wake of yet another school shooting, a school in New Mexico is not likely to be the next target.
…because everyone’s packing heat!
Well, maybe not everyone, but many teachers at the parochial school carry firearms, as does the principle and head of security, according to Inside Edition.

At a parochial school in New Mexico, many of the teachers carry guns as a precaution.
One pastor carries a .45 in a case that looks like a Bible. The principal is also armed with a .38 semi-automatic pistol.
In one of their classrooms, students say they feel safer knowing there are adults with the weapons.
Safety and security expert Bill Stanton suggests that trained dogs be assigned to schools to assist in taking down a shooter.
Stanton says that fear will often keep a shooter from firing on the canine.
“The first thing you think of is fear,” Stanton said. “That is all you need to buy that time to get those kids in a safe space or to evacuate completely.”
Gun free zones turn innocent people into targets.
When a bad guy knows people are unarmed, they understand they can do as they please.
Let’s hope more schools follow suit and begin arming teachers in some capacity.
