Only guns in the hands of Americans under attack that are fighting guns in the hands of criminals when Obama and his failed Homeland security will never keep us safe. Clearly, there are more druggies and drug edicts youngsters today than ever before under Obama's liberal rule when states such as Colorado approves drugs to everyone who wants to go high and lose control of his mind. Add to the druggies the most violent video games on every smart phone and Obama phone and the result is druggies killing as many American as possible as if they were Jihadists who vowed to kill all the infidels. The only solution is using guns to protect against guns in the hands of druggies and terrorists. Nobody can expect police to protect every life when bad people enter his house or anywhere and anytime when police officers are not around. Obama prefers to control the guns by his own union hordes and keeping the American people dependent on his union guys to keep them alive because more and more dependency of Obama means more votes for Obama and the liberal that seek more and more power with less freedom to America people. Why was there not even one gun in the school to scare the killer away or even self defense tear gas to make the attacker lose his senses? The attack in elementary school and killing 20 kids and 6 teachers means only more attacks on our children. It is time to protect the lives of our kids with guns or self defense products that take the attacker out with tear gas. Obama failed American people time and again and will not stop to bring more bad news to every American that put him in power.

If not guns I'm wondering if certain teachers should be issued mace or tasers but then again they might abuse them subduing a student. But it could be mandated to used during a rampage only.

And simple things just to reduce but not eliminate the damage done during a rampage like locking all the classrooms not affected yet. Keep people out of halls. Over turn desks and or hide underneath-make a shooter work. Hide anywhere actually.

Some things have practical application as an adult or in the outside world in the event of a terrorist attack. Even military teaches cover and concealment. The government had duck and cover drills in the 50s.

None of this a 100%, the only purpose is to buy time and make a shooter work. But it is better than doing nothing waiting for the police or the system to kept terrorists and nut jobs out of society.

Why not give the elementary school children their own training and allow them to bring in 2nd amendment rights guns? Isn't the right absolute?

All the rhetoric and panels to discuss the needs of hardening 'soft targets' is unnecessary. Soft targets will always be the first choice of any assailant. You can pass all the gun laws you want. Criminals and the mentally ill do not abide by gun laws. Gun laws only apply to law abiding citizens. The only way to put a stop to life threatening situations in soft targets is to apply deadly force.

NRA, Wayne LaPierre said it best: "The only thing that wll stop a bad guy with a gun; is a good guy with a gun."
