That says everything about work ethic and nothing about guards being deterrents. I'm an armed security contractor....you'd be surprised how much someone who is obviously disgruntled and irritated will calm down when I step in the room...
I’m sure that can be said about anyone who shoots up their workplace or school too.
More guns is NOT the answer or solution.
A brave dad armed with a pistol stopped what could have been a mass shooting Saturday inside an Alabama McDonald's when he took down a masked gunman who had stormed in and opened fire.
The unidentified father was leaving the establishment with his sons when a masked man walked into the Birmingham fast-food restaurant and started shooting, WBRC-TV reported. The father returned fire and, during the ensuing shootout, the gunman, the father and one of the man's teenage sons were struck, according to the station.
The gunman, who was not identified, later died of his injuries. The other two injuries were not considered life-threatening.
With the proper resources going towards mental health programs I think a lot of these shootings could be stopped before they begin.

I'll see you all on next thread come the next U.S shooting. Seriously it's getting hard to give a damn any more.
