Good for them. How do they protect themselves against a car ramming people, or someone attacking with a knife? Do they say "would you bloody stop please?"
Yes. At least no one got shot.
"I'm sorry your son was killed" O My God... WAS HE SHOT? "No Ma'am he was stabbed and be-headed". O, well at least it wasn't a bullet.
The courts ruled that armed police... including security officers hired specifically for schools... are not obligated or legally required to even try to stop anything. 90% approve of universal background checks to keep the wrong people from getting guns.
And a good guy with a gun is just another active shooter in that situation.
Let’s see...armed security, former cop, in school, left his gun in the bathroom... can they be trusted? Had the wrong person find the gun, what happens then? https://nypost.com/2019/01/09/high-school-guard-fired-for-leaving-gun-on-bathroom-counter/ … https://www.newsday.com/long-island/suffolk/security-guard-gun-babylon-school-1.25733916 …
They protect themselves with all the people who aren't shot and killed every day. 44 vets alone here in the US a day.
Seeing as crimes involving using a vehicle as a weapon are very rare, I'd say they are very good at protecting people from it. Its tragic when it happens. But that it rarely happens tells you something
