My thoughts

Clip to ScrapBook #9

I am a gun owner, a hunter, target shooter and concealed carry permit holder.

However, I wouldn't necessarily want to carry one at school or be the responsible armed person during an active shooter event. I might if they asked and provided compensation. I'd have to think about it. A LOT.

BUT, I think just making the law could be somewhat of a deterrent in itself. If the active shooters know that concealed weapons are possible and probable, it will make some of them think twice.

Schools are so attractive right now as shooters KNOW that no or few people can stop them. With the possibility that someone could shoot back, they may pick a different target. Not ideal but it could help our school kids and teachers.

Like many have said, If someone is determined to kill, they will find a way.
