Coulda shoulda woulda doesn't amount to much.
You can guess that Lanza's body armor wouldn't stop a round, or that armed security would get off a head shot, or that Lanza wouldn't have been gunning for the guard first, or that he wouldn't have picked some other tightly packed soft target like a temple or movie theater. Coulda shoulda woulda doesn't mean much to the insane, either.
I don't have to guess that he chose an unguarded school and attacked the most defenseless crowd he could find. Then, instead of waiting to fight it out with the armed people that would inevitably blow him into the next dimension, he kills himself.
Case closed. His target was the most defenseless victims he could find, and the prospect of him actually having to fight it out with people equally well armed caused him to kill himself before the fight started. So, any body armor he may have worn was just part of his costume. He had no intention of putting it to its intended use.
Just the presence of an armed guard at that school would have prevented this.

Japan, England, most of all European countries except where compulsory military service is required then gun ownership goes with that, the only one that compares with a no rules gun ownership is in the middle east. It has sure worked out for them hasn't it ? The rest all have at least half the mortality rate with fire arms.
and this is what is so ironic with your argument, almost half the fatalities with gun shot in the US is with a household weapon of a family that is supposed to protect. That either ends up as a quick solve to a domestic dispute or in the other extreme another member of a household getting their hands on a weapon who is unstable.
So makes you wonder how much protection it gives ?
Obama is using the gun control issue as another diversion from his rotten economy and his unwillingness to engage in meaningful deficit reduction.

Obama knows this is a losing issue in the long run, but then he doesn't need to worry about that.

A suicide mission against an armed guard or an armed self ended in suicide.
According to reports, he had been in a conflict with 4 teachers at the school the previous day, and that was far more likely to play the major part in his choices than just selecting a nice venue for a day's outing of recreational mass murder.

Some friends of Nancy Lanza are saying she was attempting to have him committed to a pcychiatric facility, she was away in New Hampshire for two days before the murders. She left him home alone with the weapons! The question is this: is it possible to commit a person to such a facility?
Someone else posted this horrid story about such a mother who was trying to commit her son too and he murdered her before she could find a place:

The discussion is about guns, which I agree that the assault weapons ban should be reinstituted; however, the underlying issue is mental illness.
Should we begin institutionalizing those that we a deem a danger to society before they do anything?

Looking for a last-minute Christmas present for that special person on your list? How about Freedom Group, the maker of the Bushmaster rifle used in the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut? Cerberus Capital Management, a major New York private equity firm, announced today that it is putting its controlling stake in Freedom Group up for sale. The Cerberus executives are no squeamish liberals. Its founder and CEO, Stephen A. Feinberg, is an avid hunter. Its executives have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars in recent years to Republican candidates, including Ben Quayle, whose father, the former vice president, serves on Cerberus' board. But apparently, the firm decided that the elementary-school massacre was just too large a blot on Freedom Group. It surely doesn't help that Feinberg's father lives in Newtown.

A sale under these circumstances presents a perfect investment opportunity. Herewith, then, is a helpful buyer's guide to some important features about Freedom Group, based on official company filings. In addition to Bushmaster, the company makes the storied Remington rifle and several other major brands. It sells more than 1 million rifles and shotguns per year. It employs 3,000 people and its manufacturing facilities are in upstate New York, Kentucky and Missouri; only the New York plant is unionized. In 2011, the company registered $775 million in sales -- still down from its pre-recession peak, but a $30 million increase over the year prior. Some other features to consider:

2. Men are as insecure as ever. On the upside, though, firearms makers such as Freedom Group have in recent years managed to offset the decline in demand from bona fide hunters by marketing military-style guns to men more interested in impressing their dears than tracking deer. The euphemism for this category is the "modern sporting rifle," and Freedom Group is all over it. From its 2011 annual report: "The Bushmaster and DPMS brands, established in 1973 and 1986, respectively, represent the largest and second largest designers and suppliers of modern sporting rifles, components and parts for the commercial market. Bushmaster was one of the first companies to introduce modern sporting rifles to the consumer market, a market that is growing faster than the general firearms industry." This shift away from the hunting market to the self-image market is what led Freedom Group to produce an ad campaign which casts buying the Bushmaster .223 as restoring one's "man card." Most unfortunately, the campaign includes one ad that defines "unmanliness" as being a man who "avoids eye contact with 5th graders."

Nancy Lanza was most likely trying to protect her son; and although there are some reports that she knew he was deteriorating; perhaps the only recourse would have been for her to call the police to say she was afraid of him. But, then, could they have done anything? Nevertheless, the weapons were provided by her; what was she thinking? Leaving him alone with the weapons for two days? Two days to plan and plot.

Creatures like you are certainly interested, and Obamacare would be discriminatory if it failed to offer this critical medical procedure. For free, of course.
