One more gun

The Sandy Hook shooting was senseless with innocent young lives lost. There were acts of valor by the principal and teachers. What went wrong?

What if we added one more gun to the equation. The shooter could have been dispatched at the door.

We could have been celebrating the heroism of the person who saved all those lives instead of the senseless loss of so many.

We guard the U.S. Mint with firearms, but our true treasures, our children, are protected by a sheet of glass and a buzzer. What is wrong with this picture?

So, we can blame the guns that were there in the hands of a madman. Or do we blame the one that wasn't there that could have stopped him at the door?
