What's the difference between a CCW holders training for use of a weapon in public and that in a school? Nothing. You take precautions be it a child or an adult. There is a time when you can safely use your firearm and when you can't.<quoted text>
Do you know how nutty and impossible that sounds, XX? We can not train teachers, nurses, principals and other staff to use weapons accurately and safely in a school full of kids. No staff members are in the same spot all day every day inside the school. Maybe they won't agree to being trained to kill people.
Training would need to be much more extensive than what most CCW holders have. Would need to be along the lines of Police/Secret Service training. It still would not prevent ALL of what happened in CT, Aurora,CO, VA Tech, Stockton,CA, Portland,OR, Chardon,OH, Columbine,CO, and neither will banning HC Magazines, but it is a start, and it is something as opposed to Nothing.
As I mentioned, the Oregon Mall shooter was stopped by a CCW holder. While he had clear site of his target, he didn't shoot. Why? Because his training taught him that you don't fire a weapon if you suspect an innocent person behind your target. He saw some kind of movement behind the shooter, but was unsure of what he seen.
This is a lesson called Downrange. Never shoot your gun unless you are positive nothing is beyond your target. If you're shooting 5 yo 8 feet away (which is the range most CCW holders have used their firearm) then it's likely you won't miss your target. If it's more than 10 feet away, a better chance one of your bullets will miss. 20 feet away, it's more than likely you are going to have a miss if not several.
Here is a police clip of highly trained officers in a shot-out. You may want to fast forward to nearly the end. Take note of the range these officers shot and how many rounds they fired off that didn't hit their suspects:
