'Should teachers be armed?' Fast Focus: Who to shoot first

January 20, 2013 

If memory serves me right, before the massacre at Columbine High School their school staff included an armed security guard. I believe I read that the two teenage attackers exchanged fire with the security guard. How could a teacher prove she would be faster and more accurate than a surprise attack? How can you train children to avoid becoming collateral damage during gunfire from multiple directions?

It would be nice to live in a culture where children are cherished more than we cherish our guns.
