Why not? What did the psychopath Lanza do as soon as someone with a gun got near him? He blew his squirming brains out. Heck even a good blast in the face with pepper gas might have helped teachers and children get away from the maniac. And they had neither of these things. They had crayons and erasers at their disposal for crying out loud. Teachers/schools are going to have to be better equipped to handle armed assailants in the future as part of any solution or the same or worse will continue. HELLO people! What the heck, you stand for having TSA goons at airports go fishing around in Grannys soiled Depends looking for box cutters and bombs and you mean to tell me it's asking too much to defend elementary schools? More stupid gun control measures are not the answer. Not having a security plan for schools in the future, from this point forward is madness.
