I hate that it has come to this but we are going to need to allow Teachers to conceal & carry. It’s going to have to be mandatory for School Administrators.

Our kids need to be protected at all cost.

Yes.
In the 1930's, a guy did the same thing with explosives. Guns killed an average of 4.92 victims per mass murder in the United States during the 20th century, just edging out knives, blunt objects, and bare hands, which killed 4.52 people per incident. Fire killed 6.82 people per mass murder, while explosives far outpaced the other options at 20.82.
Now, what was your point again?
It's much more gratifying to hurt someone with bare hands. That's my experience, at least.
You're what's wrong with the world.

If you have access to someone in law enforcement, talk to them about it. I have spoken with detectives, uniformed cops, and an agent in the FBI on this very subject, and their general consensus is, sadly, this sort of tragedy is impossible to stop. There are simply too many variables involved and you can't possibly cover all of them. The wisest course to take is to accept it as one of the ugly realities of life and move on.

Sad but true. The only thing I see that we can do it educate people. If you don't feel that you fit into society, there is no shame in seeking help.

The statement that we must do whatever at all cost, proves that the moron who said it has no clue.

Believe, I don't feel comfortable supporting buck, but..

Hong Kong (CNN)-- On Friday morning, a man walked through the entrance of an elementary school and, without warning, began ruthlessly cutting down children at the school. Before he was subdued, nearly two dozen were hit.

While it sounds like the horrific massacre in Connecticut, this attack took place about 8,000 miles away in central China. And while several of the victims were reported in critical condition, none of the 22 children were killed. The 36-year-old suspect in China -- which has strict gun control laws -- attacked the children with a knife, according to local reports.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/15/world/asia/chin...

Guns are not needed, a deranged person will find a way to harm others. While you can easily point out that no one died, I am sure that the man did not know how to use a knife. A few minutes are the internet or reading a book could have changed that.

A few minutes on the internet or reading a book, one could build a bomb, create a chemical attack, poison a water supply. Man has been killing for a long time and is getting pretty good at it.

I worked in law enforcement for a duration. Perhaps we may not be able to prevent losses with armed Administrators and Coaches & Teachers. But we just might be able to minimize the carnage. Resisting may also buy time for Law enforcement to get on the scene.

Schools are responsible to do all they can to protect our kids. The kind of threats have changed over the years and now mass killings are a possibility.

I don’t accept that we can’t do anything. In fact all public places like schools, churches, government buildings, need to have someone designated with conceal & carry.

These mega movie theaters should be able to afford armed security.

There are about 100,000 public schools in America. Two guns per school would be 200,000 guns in schools. If the average capacity is 10 rounds, that's 2 million bullets, in American schools, every day, waiting to be fired at humans.

I think I'd give them tasers.

The one thing that we need most of all, at least in my opinion, is education. If you are going to allow someone to carry a gun, make them take some training.

If you are carrying while in the mall and you hear gun shots and screams from the back of the store, what do you do?

Before you can get away, you see a man with a pistol run toward you, what do you do?

You have two possibilities that you have to work out in less than a second.

Is he the shooter or is he, just like you, a law bidding citizen who has a permit to carry and is running to take cover, or is he the shooter and if you don't shoot him, he is going to shoot you.

I have no idea how I would react and I have some training.

From what I am reading, the kid had a mental disorder. If that is true, then the mother is certainly at fault for not taking that into consideration.

Many people are afraid of the negative stigma attached to mental health issues, so they hide it.

Nothing ever good comes out of hiding from issues.
