Few are taking their gun to school unless it is a group effort as you described. No one person alone will carry in a school because of the fear of gun free zone laws or someone finding out they have a gun in schools. What scares me is a shooter comes in and the teacher shoots back and starts hitting the innocent kids or bystanders. Look at our police departments accuracy when they have to shoot a suspect. In new York cops shot something like 9 citizens shooting at a suspect. The thing is only highly trained people will ever handle an active shooter situation with out a lot of collateral damage. You can train anyone to hit a target if you have all the time in the world. But only vets and very few cops know what it's like to actively engage a target. Everyone else will probably freeze up or miss wildly. How do we handle this. "teacher shoots and kills 2 students while firing back at a shooter" the law suit alone will ruin the states schools for years. Look at Newtown those schools will never see a new book for decades after the parents take every single penny from CT education budget to pay the hundreds of millions in claims.
Refer to rule 4...Also to be honest with you many people who have a CHL shoot much more than any N.Y. LEO with the possible exception of their SWAT team and even then I have my doubts. One of my neighborhood cops shoots one a year for qualification and practices a couple of days before the qual....And the ammo is free..I am sure you will agree not everyone takes a job or responsibility as serious as they should.
