This is nuts. Better they should arm themselves with non-lethal bear spray. It reaches forty feet and forms an impenetrable tear gas barrier. If it can stop a charging grizzly, it can stop an armed assailant. Tear gas "sprinklers" could be installed in schools to be set off like a fire alarm, and each student could be given a gas mask. A shootout with guns is likely to produce lots of collateral damage. Even stun guns will work better than firearms.
