You’ll find no argument from me that the students of our great nation must be protected.  At all costs.

The argument that you will find me engaging in is one of which method for achieving a 0% rate of school shootings is likely to work.  So far, we do know what not to do if you want to stop an active shooter at a school.

The first thing you don’t want to do is outlaw guns on the property.  This allows a criminal gun owner to be the only armed individual at the facility, which tilts the advantage to the maniacal murderer.

The second thing that you don’t want to do is hare someone from the Broward County Sheriff’s Department to guard your school.  As it turns out, those guys are 100% ineffective when it comes to active shooter situations, and America is letting them have it.

From March 23rd, just 6 weeks after the attack on Stoneman Douglas High School in which armed Sheriff’s Deputies waited outside for the massacre to end:

On Friday morning, Broward County Sheriff officers woke up to their police headquarters littered in controversial “Broward Coward” posters.

The posters, which were photographed by Broward County residents early Friday morning included pictures of disgraced Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, controversial Deputy Sheriff Nezar Hamze (labeled as Deputy Hamas), and the infamous Broward County officer Scott Peterson with the caption, “Have you seen this Broward Coward?”

These posters appear to be an artistic and political reaction to the Broward County sheriff department’s poor handling of the Parkland school shooting, which left 17 people dead. Following the Valentine’s Day school massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, it was quickly revealed that officers under Sheriff Israel were called to the home of the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, 19, nearly 45 times prior to the school shooting.

So, what can be done?  Several experts believe that arming some teachers could lead to a reduction in the frequency of these tragedies, and act as a deterrent against these lunatics.

Wyoming is gambling on that working for them.

After two months of deliberation, the Park County school board has agreed to allow its teachers to carry guns.

In a 4-2 vote Tuesday night, the majority felt guns would make the schools safer for children.

Students, parents and community members packed the tiny meeting room and expressed both concern about and support for the plan in its third and final reading.

One trustee said the new policy does not guarantee every teacher would carry a gun.

Teachers would be required to be a permitted concealed carrier before arming themselves on campus.
