We are, collectively, just ignorant.
Do we really believe an armed guard can protect a school? Why do we assume that the “crazy” shooter is also stupid? Shame on us. Any school guard would surely be the first casualty simply because they cannot have their weapon in hand, poised and pointed at everyone who comes near from every direction. They also eat lunch, take breaks, interact with many others at the school, etc. Teachers with guns? Forgetaboutit!
The single, most important advantage and frequent winner in any encounter is surprise.
