How'd those well trained armed guards at Columbine work out for you gun nuts? (There were two of them) Not so well.
Now I agree there entirely. I wasn't aware Columbine HS HAD openly armed guards at the time of the massacre but I never bothered to look either way
on that detail, so I'll take your word for it. They focused so strongly on explosives in that attack and not guns, I've never paid much more
attention to their guns than the last ditch 'tools' of destruction they eventually became to those killers. Their bombs failed to work...Thank
God..and it saved a school.
However, in the case of openly armed guards? What good are they?? The DO teach the kids to become conditioned to and accept absolute authority with
life and death power in their immediate daily life and from a very young age. That it DOES do...nothing much else though.
I mean, to play devil's advocate again...and I won't
play this with a school scenario so bear with my example... but lets say I wanted to
massacre a grocery store. That grocery store has a BIG Hulk Hogan looking guy with a BIG gun and every anxious sign he's happy to use it. I.E....the
worst security guard one could imagine meeting as a criminal. Well.. Okay.... Even he has to DO something occasionally ...and as soon as he becomes
focused on anything from writing a report to helping a customer ....as a criminal looking to kill everyone anyway? His shift in attention will form
his last act guarding the store...and he'll never have had a chance to try or know who or why reality literally just ended for him. ....then the real
horror begins and the guard even added a gun to the criminal's kit! eek!
On the other hand...if half the clerks have guns...my poor little tail is Rabbit Stew that night after they clean the rest of me up with pooper
scoopers and sandwich baggies....after half a dozen panicky clerks just empty guns.
