The fact is that Americans are safer now than ever, but, as you say, there is no such thing as complete safety.<quoted text>What in the natural f**k are you smoking, to think the world was ever a 'safe place'? Americans have been complacent sheep, trusting "somebody else" to provide "protection" from the violence "out there" for a couple of centuries.
Face it, doofus, there are no 'safe places' in THIS sick, sad society, never mind Syria.
If the schools armed some of their personnel, the children would never see the guns and would never know.
In fact, the point is that nobody would know who was armed or not, just as in the air marshal program. Not the other teachers, not even the principal.
