Great training scenario. Too bad we need this type of training. I hope we never actually need to activate the team of professionals, but if we do I am glad they will know how to handle the matter.

Thank you for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

The primary targets in virtually all of these shootings are "gun free zones". If we don't have any of these targets, the likelihood of an incident is drastically reduced.

Ever wonder why the wackjobs never attack a police station?

Why by cracky, you're right Aubrey. We should give them youngn's a sawed off shotgun and two hours of training the minute they hit kindergarten. And the teachers, why they should have some rocket launchers. That'll keep the crazies away!

It is possible to stop the gun crazies that kill indiscriminately in schools and malls and the like. Given the value we place on life here... It is a matter of political choice to provide proper deterrence. It would not be that difficult to put in a staffed machine gun turret atop each school. And it is more than possible to put in remotely controllable "Exit" signs in all public locations that are capable of shooting targets identified by video feeds. Kind of a drone protection scenario. Think of the size of the market for gun drone exit signs. One in each classroom, two in each corridor, several in each gym, etc.etc.
And I never understood why people get upset about arming all teachers and staffs in schools. For the same reason that the mass killers don't attack police stations

So time to arm up for safety!!!

Plus it would certainly engender teacher respect from unruly students. All you would have to do as a teacher is "point-the-gun" ! ! !
