    Vice President Biden unfurled his genius during a Google+ “fireside” hangout last month stating that having “armed guards in schools would be a terrible mistake.”

    Really, José? Why don’t you rock up to Price Middle School in Atlanta on Monday morning and bray that insanity to the teachers and students who were spared an early grave because an armed guard took out the latest Lanza wannabe before he could waylay his peers?

    Oh, I’m sorry. Y’all haven’t heard about the armed guard taking down a shooter who passed his gun through the metal detectors at an Atlanta middle school? My bad. I forgot that the Lamestream Media doesn’t report on commonsense solutions to potential mass murders.

    Armed or not, the guard could have done the disarming.
    This doesn't address the good with a gun vs a bad guy with a gun scenario, and thus is really just a moot point.

    Don't get me wrong, I am all for armed guards at school (or SOMEONE being an armed defender), but this really doesn't fit the "here's my point proven".

    If the guard had been forced to shoot or outgun the BG, then it would be a proven point.
    But seriously. ANYONE in the vicinity would have been able to do what the resource officer happened to do at that point.
