If the teacher had been armed, yes there could still be injury or death, but instead of 20 children it might just be one.
That being said, placing further restrictions on guns will not stop gun violence. We can look to Chicago and New York as an example. It is very
difficult to obtain a firearm in these States, yet that has not stopped gun violence. Instead it has created more victims because the only people that
have the guns are the criminals.
Norway has strict firearm regulations, but those regulations did nothing to prevent that massacre.
The UK has outlawed guns. Instead the people there are stabbed.
Fact is, if a person wants to harm another person, there is very little you can do to prevent it.
