A (South Carolina) House subcommittee approved a measure Wednesday that would allow concealed weapon permit holders to carry guns onto public school campuses, from elementary schools to universities. Supporters say having trained and armed gun owners in schools could prevent massacres like the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech...Listen, if police showing up at a shooting scene with guns is a good thing, why is it bad thing to allow that armed response to be there prior to the police's arrival. Every time I hear arguments against this the logic goes along the lines that these people are not properly trained to employ a firearm in a stressful situation. Well it seems to me that one improperly trained guy was effective enough to kill 32 people at Virginia Tech. It does not take a genius to be able to employ a gun effectively. Hell in many cases, a gun doesn't even need to be fired to defuse a situation. The mere fact that will be forcefully resisted is enough to bring things to a screeching halt.
Why do the democrats insist on forcing people to bring even less than a knife to a gun fight?
