Doesn't really matter what occupation the nut case had before he went "hot range" in the school (or any other GFZ for that matter). What matters is this: once that starts, how long will it take to stop him?

Except for the assassination attempt on that (Arizona?) congresswoman, every mass shooting since the 1950's has been in a GFZ. (The congresswoman was attacked in the parking lot of a grocery store, both of which were areas where a weapon was allowed.)

There are really just two possibilities. First, schools can remain GFZs as they are now. In that case, the shooter gets a free ride for as long as it takes for an armed responder to (a) be informed that there is a situation, (b) travel from his current location to a place where he can use his weapon, (c) deploy his weapon and use it.

Second, we could BAN GFZs (entirely or at least for the schools). Make GFZ extinct as a concept. Allow armed LACs to carry anywhere they go. In that case, the shooter gets the same free ride. The difference is that (a) a nearby armed LAC will hear the gunfire and know immediately that there is a situation, (b) he will already be at (or very close to) a place where he can use his weapon, and (c) he can deploy his weapon and use it immediately.

In the first case, the shooter gets 10-20 minutes of free live fire practice on live targets. In the second case he gets perhaps that many seconds.

So I ask all the anti-gun liberals the question they always ask us: "If just one life could be saved, wouldn't you be willing to give up your political agenda for that purpose?"
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
Practice does NOT make perfect. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
Generalizations are (almost) always bad.
