Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
In reality, Israel's gun policy is living proof of the arguments the American gun lobby has been making for years
Wednesday's horrific shooting in Florida has reignited the gun rights debate in the United States over the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, adopted in 1791, which states:: "... the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
In the past, proponents of limiting civilian access to firearms have extolled Israel as having the proper approach to limiting mass shootings, pointing to the numerous legal hoops Israelis must jump through in order to be granted a gun license.
"In Israel, gun ownership is a privilege rather than a right," wrote Public Radio International in November. "There is no such thing as a right to bear arms in Israel," the Huffington Post preached after the 2016 shooting in an Orlando nightclub that left 50 dead.
Newsweek praised Israel for obligating its citizens to "show genuine cause to carry a firearm, such as self-defense or hunting". The message is clear: Israel has the right approach in curtailing access to firearms, and the United States would be well advised to tread the same path.
In reality, Israel's gun policy is living proof of the arguments the American gun lobby has been making for years.
Gun rights advocates contend that the way to stop mass shootings is by ensuring that there are always well-armed citizens present who can neutralize the shooter. As NRA chairman Wayne Lapierre always says, "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun". A bedrock of the NRA's philosophy is that criminals will always acquire guns illegally, and draconian gun laws only render law-abiding citizens defenseless.

Unfortunately, the anti gunners don't listen to nor believe in "reason". It's all about emotions. The Dark Side counts on it and the number of billionaire anti gunners spending millions opposing the Second Amendment to the Constitution early on demonstrated who is behind the movement. All Left Wingers, terrified of the 300 million (or more) legal weapons in the hands of The People.
By allowing the teachers to defend themselves from wacko's gives them a reason to teach about our Constitutional liberties and freedom ... but they won't ... because they are not allowed to by the same school administrations that profess a version of "separation of Church and State" which doesn't exist.
These liberals tell us "its for the children" but how many of those "children" never make it to the classroom ... due to Abortions even in 3rd trimester?? They're all hypocrites !!!
I spend most of June and July every year teaching counter-terror in Israel. I take students to at least one University (Hebrew University - Jerusalem), Community College (Sapir - next to Gaza) and grade school (various) to see how they protect their children. Not only are there armed staff but also nicely done access control points to the campuses. Granted, some of the campuses are within rocket and mortar range from Gaza, particularly Sapir College. These locations face additional challenges including CBRN readiness, and yes, I have been under rocket attack there. The largest difference I see is the Israeli far left and religious right agree to the security and the government is willing to pay for the additional security. Lastly, the basic construction of new facilities are designed with these concepts in mind.

in this country the teacher might join with shooter!
Hi Fellow AFA, there is no comparison to make with Guns and Tools since the being of mankind. God, gave men the ability to defend and protect himself. Thus, it is a given to humanity to choose how to use and bear that gift(Tools) not any entity that would cause mankind to be unprotected by predators.
