During the February 18 airing of Fox News Sunday Rush Limbaugh referenced the Florida shooting and observed that gun-free school zones mean that attackers are the only ones who are armed Limbaugh noted how bewildering it is that “we have armed security at virtually every public entity in this country, except schools. For some reason, they are a gun-free zone and everybody that wants to shoot up a school knows that they are going to be the only one armed.”
In other words, law-abiding teachers, staff, and administrators are unarmed, which means the person who enters campus to commit heinous acts need not fear armed resistance.
This gun-free scenario led Limbaugh to observe that school shootings will not end until we “get serious” about stopping them, and he painted a distressing picture of what our future holds until we do get serious:
The next shooter probably has the gun he is going to use. The next shooter is known by many people in his community who are concerned that this guy may do what everybody is afraid he’s going to do. …We can wish that it weren’t this way. We can wish that Congress could legislate it away. But they can’t.” He observed that student marches and “prayers and condolences” are not going to prevent another shooting either.

“QUICK! HIDE BEHIND THIS IMPOSING SIGN!”
The High School in question had 7 full time costumed gov’t employees tasked with security.
Hence the importance of letting the adult would-be targets arm themselves.
The guards are there for a lousy paycheck, and no bonus if they actually step in harm’s way. The attacker will of course avoid them.
The teachers ARE in harm’s way, should ham come. The first may have no warning; the rest will hear the commotion and have time (though little) to draw.
Incident shows the fallacy of paranoid imperative of disarming all.
correct – I‘m thinking the same as you.
plus – stop forcing kids to take psycho-tropic drugs
plus – bring back industrial arts ( because it drives some kids insane to be forced to sit in a classroom 6 hours/day )
