Fort Hood nullifies the "kids will be safer with an armed guard at the school"
There were plenty of armed, trained people hanging around Fort Hood when that guy went nuts and killed nine people. And the NYC incident where two armed, trained NYPD officers shot something like twelve innocent bystanders trying to gun down one guy kind of shows that guns don't exactly keep innocent people safe, either.
Gun nuts...try again. Hint: the harder you argue, the more you make a total gun ban look good. Let us ban assault weapons. We'll feel better and you get to keep the majority of your guns. But if you think that 'armed guard in every school' thing is going to fly, you have another think coming. The NRA drastically mistook the mood of the opposition on this one. They have totally fucked up. I live in serious gun nut country and not even here are people in support of this. And if you can't get Dixie behind putting an armed guard just about ANYWHERE, you can't get anybody behind it.
I think the NRA has made a huge misstep today.

2. As I recall, the people at Ft. Hood were disarmed
and it wasn't until the armed military police showed up that they were able to subdue the shooter.
