From the article:
"Teachers with concealed carry licenses can carry concealed guns in these 40 districts, after they undergo extended training."

Bullshit. They read some junk, they maybe show they know which end to point at the other person. That's not training, that's eyewash. Nothing in there about deciding that the person in front of you has to die so other people can live.

Since you don't actually know what training they are talking about, your comment lacks much substance.

No, but only in America could someone propose that armed guards should be stationed on school premises in response to the shootings without being laughed out of the room.

Except they already have them in other countries, so there's that.

Israel, Iraq, Somalia, and Afghanistan have armed protection for schools in response to murderous attacks. Even Canada has embedded armed security in some schools.

No one but the shooter was armed and lots of people died.

Americans are are pretty scared. This is what makes me worry about the future of humanity. When the most scared people on the planet have all the nukes.....

That's one way to go about it. Consider

However, I think some specialized training appropriate to the school environment should probably go along with it.

Most schools in cities have a police presence. The school my husband works at has several police working around the campus with a small office and staff but anything larger takes money.

Hell, we take about $600 dollars out of our own household budget to pay for student who can't afford stuff. A couple of the kids in my husband's classes have horrible home situations and we've contributed to necessary school supplies for them. And actually, this is a decently funded school. Just think of the schools who have less funding. So people jumping up and down saying, "oh, let the teachers carry guns" are living in some alternative universe. They don't have a clue what teaching is all about.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
