Yea it worked somewhat. Can not just put one armed guy in a school of 3k kids. School like santafe needs about 10-12 cop mininum.

You will never, Never, NEVER stop a determined shooter from getting to the point he/she wants to be and start doing what is planned. You can reduce the damage by being there to put down the perp. before it continues to whatever he/she dreams about doing. As a retired law enforcement officer, I will tell you that many retirees would be glad to help, but they must receive support. After all, he/she is the one trained, not the politicians. Also, school uniforms would preclude the wearing of trench coats and the other internal strife brought about by students being "different". Metal detectors will not be effective because students will go to a "panic bar door" and open it for their friends. That, and the backup from the metal detector/s would be a perfect target. Lots of stuff could be done, but nothing is done while the "experts" argue through their lack of expertise.
