Can we drop the sweaty “good guy with a gun” fantasy already?

It clearly didn’t work in Uvalde, where unspeakable horror was met with cowardice.

“One of the students from the other classroom was yelling, ‘Officer we’re in here. We’re in here,’” he continued.

“But they had already left. Then he [the killer] got up from behind my desk and he went over there and he began shooting again.”

Imagine being a teacher and having your entire classroom executed while watching a movie.

Now imagine the police arrive…and do nothing.

But sure: less doors and even more firearms are just what we need (not).
