Gun ownership up, gun violence down - Wintery Knight Posted at Wintery Knight: The mainstream media is using naive students like sock puppets to push an anti-self-defense agenda. I saw a clip where one of the children was explaining that armed teachers or security guards would not prevent school shootings. Instead, the solution being suggested by those on the left is to ban all semi-automatic weapons – which would mean confiscating nearly every firearm used for self-defense against criminals by law-abiding citizens. So, does having an armed security guard on staff work? Here’s a story from the Daily Caller : The Great Mills High School student who injured two others Tuesday morning was stopped by the school’s armed resource officer.  According to St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron, the school resource officer (SRO) fired a round at the shooter, who fired a round in return.
