Terrorists know it and Jeff Weise knew it. Schools in this country are designated as gun-free zones. We obviously don't want kids showing up with guns, so the "feel-good" crowd bans them altogether. Teachers cannot carry. Guards cannot carry, except in the most extreme cases.
Red Lake High School in Minnesota found out the hard way that anti-gun laws are miserable failures. Weise walked into the school and the first person killed was an unarmed security guard. The guard didn't even have protective clothing.
One would think that after the rash of school shootings in the late 1990s and early 2000s that schools would want more protection. Unfortunately, the PC crowd thinks a guard at a desk and a metal detector is sufficient to stop a lunatic out to kill.
How soon before terrorists hit our schools? They've already done it in Belsan, Russia.
Additional: Notice how the media is already burying the story about the shooting.... Are the media elitists biased against Native American victims? Columbine's white students were on the front page for days. Have you wondered why Weise is being called a "gunman" even though he is only 16? If he didn't kill himself, he wouldn't have been elligible for the death penalty. Have you heard that Weise frequented a neo-Nazi web site? Perhaps, but did you hear that he was interested in liberal/socialist environmental eco-terrorism?
Then again, you probably haven't heard about the unarmed guards, either.
