"If only a responsible adult with a gun could have been there most if not all of these people might still be alive.
Why is it there are never mass shootings at police stations, gun shows, or the White House?
Things that make you go "Hmmmmmmm".
To some it is crystal clear and to others there is no logic at all. "
Oh, you mean like the armed deputy at Columbine that was ineffective, or the armed security at VA Tech that couldn't stop all the killing?
No wait, you must mean like a whole military base full of trained soldiers with an arsenal at their disposal that couldn't stop all the killings at Ft. Hood.
The problem with your logic is that you think killings are preventable with an armed person at the ready, the reality is that they don't prevent killings they respond to them. As in generally someone has to die or get wounded before anyone knows something is wrong in the first place. Armed security is no guarantee of safety, if anything it's more of a false security blanket in these type of situations. At best it MIGHT lower the body count which granted is a good thing but a zero body count sadly is highly unlikely.
