A student in an Atlanta middle school shot one other student before an armed guard stopped them. The other student was shot in the neck, but seems to be only wounded. The armed guard was able to disarm the student.
Yes, my laziness extends to the point where I just link to the first article on google search.
Naturally, Piers Morgan denies the report stating that there was no way an armed guard could have stopped it (so, apparently shootings never stop until the shooter gets bored, according to his logic.)
Remember the NRA plan to have armed guards in schools, and how everyone hated it? Then remember how everybody thought it was a great idea when the president suggested it a while later?
Regardless of who suggested it, the idea seems to have…you know, worked.
You can never know how many shootings you prevent, only how many get stopped. And a result is something. If more shootings become shootings with far less people injured or killed and shootings getting stopped by armed guards, teachers, or citizens in schools, offices, malls, or wherever, then a minimal loss of innocent life is an improvement.
Not the life of the shooter, they kind of decided to gamble it away when they decided to go shoot random people. Feel free to let them claim the ultimate prize, as you legally can in most free states.
