Your hands shake for hours afterward. This what I want you to consider when the discussion moves toward Rep.

More than just an introduction to code.

Members of the military and police spend hours, days and weeks at a time training with their weapons. They train on close quarter tactics with partners, teams, squads and platoons. Safety and awareness is ingrained in you from day one. Dry runs are the norm. You practice and train methodically, going door by door, hallway to hallway, communicating and marking cleared rooms as you pass. You do this over, and over and over.

Because no two professions better understand the devastation of a gun when things go wrong. No two professions better understand the actual stress of being shot at and the absolute need to remember and implement the months and years of training for these exact types of situations.

The margin for error in close quarters combat, such as a school environment, is razor thin.

# Skylark: old friend in a new land – The Ormsby Review

The only responsibility a teacher should have during a school shooting is ensuring the safety of the students in their classroom. Further, Rep. Pittman totally disregards that a person or teacher with a gun, even with the best intentions, can create a tragedy on their own. There are what ifs on top of what ifs. What if during the chaos of an active shooter situation a teacher shoots a n innocent student? Are we willing to accept this as a society? What if the teacher is shot a very likely scenario? What if the shooter knows exactly who the armed teachers on campus are? What if on a regular day a teacher goes to break up a fight in the hallway and the firearm is accidentally discharged?

According to an FBI study about active shooter situations , police officers who engaged the shooter were wounded or killed in The potential collateral damage is not worth it. There are just too many possible negative outcomes and risks that so severely outweigh the small chance that they stop an active shooter threat , where most of the death and destruction is carried out in the first few minutes.

This piece is not meant as a knock against teachers , nor am I by any means questioning their bravery in these situations. God knows our country has seen example after example of teachers and students shielding others from gunfire. My goal here is to bring the reality of the situation to the forefront. Matt Martin, thank you for your for your service. You are a brave soldier and you make Americans proud. We understand war is hell and each person will respond to the horrors differently.

About the Author

However, not knowing how our soldiers will respond does not deter us from training, preparing and deploying. I for one would rather have a fighting chance whether I took it or not than not have any chance at all. Gun free zones are target rich environments. Schools, movie theaters, military compounds military compounds! Put a gun somewhere in a school, in the hand of a teacher, a law enforcement officer, etc, and you will do much to DETER the coward. What the author is missing is that the simple knowledge that teachers may be armed, could be enough deterrent in itself.

Their Security carries a walkie-talkie and pepper-spray. A Security Guard or two, even armed, is not a deterrent in a large venue. The thought that there are dozens of possible armed people — IS! They plan to die so more guns is no detergent. Learn about the motive and prevent the means and this will stop! May not be a deterrent. But more likely the assailant goes out in a body bag and lives are saved. And this scenario has played out just like that many a time… not that the media has any interest in covering those stories. Then arm all of the schools. Why are you all so against teachers protecting themselves and their students.

Why all the hate? Your sick gun obsession has nothing to do with protecting kids! If, god forbid, there was an active shooter situation at my school, my job is to stay with my kids, not run off trying to be Rambo! What if the person breaking the door open is SWAT? In an active shooter situation, anyone with a gun is going to immediately be perceived as a threat. No matter how responsible people are, they tend to slip up eventually.

The more comfortable a teacher gets with taking their weapon to work, and the more time passes without incident, the more complacent they are likely to get. In Idaho, a professor shot himself in the foot during class with his concealed carry weapon. In Utah, another teacher accidentally shot herself in the leg while using the school bathroom. And you want to take that situation and replicate it across thousands of classrooms all over the country? The problems are not gun free zones. There are problems with law, crime, culture and mentally unhealthy people.

Also, maybe armed maybe not doesny mean squat to most people willing to open fire in a school. They got screws loose that just dont give a hoot. Armed teaches do open the door to extra risk. Shots fired in the hallway, someone comes barging through the door seeking safety and gets shot because someone in that room is armed and scared shitless.

There are a whole slew of issues that simply make it risky. Is it worth it? I have a hard time accepting that risk across thousands of schools. But, that makes no sense!

A Fly Went By by Mike McClintock

At least having the ability to defend themselves from someone with a gun is better than just hiding and taking the bullet without a choice!! Several of the last shooters explicitly writing about targeting poorly-defended locations is a pretty hard contradiction for this. On top of this all except 2 successful public mass shootings in the last 30 years have been in gun-free zones.

If you could provide your sources for the shooters writing explicitly about targeting gun free zones. As for your other comment that all but 2 public shootings over the last 30 years were in gun free zones.

A Stanford database on mass shootings defined as three or more shooting victims injured or killed, not including the shooter. Shootings that are gang- or drug-related are not included. The dataset includes incidents going back to the beginning of Of the 54 incidents that fit the criteria, the shooter chose locations where guns were banned 37 times. Shootings occurred where guns were legally allowed 17 times.

So that refutes your statement. But both said. The numbers change when you use the the more standard definition of mass shootings. All these school shooters are on suicidal vendettas and expect to die, either at the hands of law enforcement or by killing themselves. This is not true. Some shooters, like the FL shooter, have no intention of dying. He shot the place up very quickly and then he ran.

Would the shooter have even entered the building? A deterrent assumes the behavior of a rational response from a person acting in their own self-interest. These people intend to die, not survive. Please state your references. Carjackings in those states dropped to zero or near-zero overnight. Not every mass shooter is on a suicide mission, and the possibility of an armed victim universally leads them to a softer target. Even a shooter who is on a suicide mission will choose a target where they can do more damage before they die. Car-jackers are stealing and hoping to get away with their prize and get some money or something out of it.

He was armed, and he was right outside the building, and maybe he could have stopped the shooter. He has been suspended, and now resigned. Experienced military veteran? Uh, I guess, technically. But stil just a kid… and green. He was what, 19? Colin Powell is an experienced military veteran. The 40something private contractors hired by the military to do what those in uniform often lack courage to, are also experienced military veterans.
