After the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, one of the solutions many gun advocates offered to solve the problem of mass killings was to post armed security guards at schools. In the wake of the most recent shooting in our nation's capitol, it's clear that this is far from a reasonable solution to the problem.
Facts regarding the tragedy continue to emerge, but two widely reported pieces of information should be noted:
- At least one of the twelve who died was an armed security officer
- The gunman apparently used two firearms that he took from his victims to continue the rampage
