...a couple staffers had been armed?

If you can afford a fire alarm, wouldn't you have one? Why not an armed staff member in a school? You mention private schools. I suspect private schools have a lot more security than public schools because they can afford them.
We seem to want to protect school children, I haven't heard the same outcry for theater patrons or postal customers, have you?
So, I guess protecting children is perceived as a different case.
If your task is to kill or capture an individual with minimal "civilian" casualties (more and more a concern in today's 24 hour news cycle world), it strikes me that tossing a grenade into the room with that person without regard to whoever is there is a very stupid way to do it.
Allow me to comment on your numbers.
Marc, if you will click on the link to the CDC's actual numbers and data (that I have given above) you will be able to ascertain for yourself that over 60 percent of the deaths by firearm are from suicide, if you study the data further you will see that this only represents 50 percent of the total suicides (these people will still kill themselves).
Of the total deaths by firearm less the one tenth of one percent occur in schools (this includes high schools and colleges as well).
Rational analysis of a problem requires conscious effort not just emotion hyperbole
England has a higher rate of rape, do you hate women?
Australia's rate of violent crime against the elderly is increasing since their gun confiscation program, do you hate the elderly?
England doesn't have a 2nd Amendment, neither does Australia, we do. If you don't like the 2nd Amendment, then change it, don't violate it.
Careful to not get the holy water on your self, it might be caustic to atheists.
Baptism does not need to be the end of rational thought, sadly it can happen before it begins.
It's called Catholic Calisthenics, I was going to post a video that explains it all...but...after watching it, I decided to kill myself instead..........:x
I received an invite to a Baptism recently, I called and told the person who sent the invitation that I wouldn't be attending.
My granddaughter's brainwashing is beginning, a sad day.
England less guns then America more rape per 100,000.
America more guns then England less rape per 100,000.
Violent crimes exist throughout the world.
Crime stats go up and down. What woman cares if she was the first rape of the year or the last rape of the year.
Does a parent care that her child was killed in a year that stats showed homicides were declining?
The "WHY" is much more important then the resulting crime.
This country could help itself greatly by declaring the "War on Drugs" over and redirecting those resources to the "Why" of violent crimes and drug use, be proactive not reactive.
