The shooter has the loaded gun and has his victim in his sights. The teacher is conducting her duties. Where is her gun? Is it in her desk? Is it on her desk? Is it in her holster? Is it loaded?
The would-be shooter asks himself "Who should I shoot first? The teacher or my victim."
Who was the first victim?
Teachers are trained to teach. Let us keep it this way. The police and the laws are designed and trained to take care of the kind of problem we face. We can use them.
We do not need two departments questioning who's turn is it to do the shooting?
Why not face this problem starting with the parents, the children, the teenagers, and on up to where the law must be included.
