Ann Coulter just seemed to suggest that perhaps teachers or other school officials should have concealed guns in schools, in an effort to “reduce deaths” in shootings like this morning’s in Newton, Connecticut. Today’s shooting left 26 or 27 people dead, including 18 children. The shooter is dead.
In major study of all multiple-shooting incidents in US, ’77-’99, only 1 policy reduced deaths: concealed-carry laws. – bit.ly/SZbVLV

The very idea that “more guns” would “reduce deaths” is false.
Teachers and other school officials are not trained sharpshooters.
Imagine how many more might be dead by teachers trying to find and kill the shooter?
Not to mention, how do you prevent small children from accessing weapons in schools.
The bottom line is no other country has the “gun culture” as America does.
32 Americans are shot and killed every day.
More guns is not the answer.
