I spent my whole live as a soldier, security guard and police officer. I don't want tragic things to happen like the Newton School shooting. What I want to have happen is for use to develop a strategy that will protect the helpless. I think the best way to do that is look around the nation and the world and see how other places do this and emulate what they do on a national basis.
In Israel they have been waging a war against terrorists for decades. They allow essentially anyone in the schools to carry guns. They have teachers and school administrators openly carrying rifles and pistols. Despite the dangers they, they don't have school shootings.
In our own nation, many school shooters have been stopped by people with their own personal firearms. The Oregon shopping mall where a man started shooting and killed two people was saved from greater disaster by a shopper with a gun. He pulled his gun on the shooter who then ran away and then killed himself. People have a right to protect themselves. People should not give up that right just because they are in a school; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
