10. If this is some implied argument against guards, or national school security measures, it's a fail.

I'm no NRA supporter, either. But consider:

A structural flaw in a vast number of schools is bathrooms. Adults should not be sharing bathrooms with the student body (heh heh). Schools must remodel or re-purpose space for separate adult bathrooms. Then, if this happens, as it does with people who simply have 'too much to remember' in such high-stimulation environments, a student wouldn't have access to it. Such a structural change has the same justification as teacher lounges, offices, meeting rooms, etc.

For it to work everywhere else, people everywhere else have to stop cheaping out on their schools' bathroom structures. (I know how that sounds...) Forcing adults and students to use the same bathrooms is plain trashy stupid. It confuses students about the seriousness of the adult/child and student/teacher separation that help students understand adult boundaries.

I'm anti-NRA. But armed security at entrances/exits has worked in Chicago's hundreds of schools for the last fifteen years. Entrance/Exit armed security in the third largest city in the country, with NO within-school killings -- proves that armed security in schools does work -- when implemented correctly with qualified personnel.

Americans have to stop cheaping out on security personnel. Americans' school districts must, must stop leaving schools defenseless because some fake adult administrators and politicians screw up on the proper implementation of armed security for their school children.
