Wikipedia says there are about 64 million students that need to be protected. (81 million if you also count university).
So, what with extra guards needed for replacements of people on sick leave, holidays, plus the extras doing the training, etc... you need well over a
*million* such armed guards.
In comparison, the internet tells me there are only 58,000 TSA agents, and you've all heard stories about how they're scraping the barrel and getting
a lot of rubbish employees in that lot.
Multiply that problem by 17, and give them guns.
Edit - the number of guards with guns will also exceed the total number of police... and we all know how they love any chance to shoot.
