17. I haven't posted on here since my husband died.

A bit of history. He ended his life working at a medical clinic and lobbying against the insurance industry. Previous to that he was a SWAT member and prior to that he was teacher. I can see that had been a teacher there he too would have stood up for those kids, no matter what just like the brave hero teachers who died protecting those kids that they could.

Teachers, as I'm sure you don't know, can't just wander off from their kids. Beyond the fact that kids at that age can't be left alone under the best circumstances, but those teachers are legally in loco parentis and are, for the time those kids are in school, basically their parents legally in terms of protecting them from danger.

Which means they cannot leave them for any reason at any time until someone else assumes in loco parentis responsibility for them.

I would like you to name ONE time when a concealed or open carry person stopped or prevented one of these tragedies.

The difference my friend is training. A john rambo wannabe doesn't have the kind of training someone like my husband had. He knew about fields of fire. He understood negotiating techniques. He never took a shot he could make 100%. He was a professional. Not a cowboy wannabe.

This post saddens me in the level of ignorance demonstrated.

LeeAnn.
