Our friends at TTAG put together a nice simulation of a school shooting and the efficacy of various possible responses, ranging from armed security at the entrance of the school to armed teachers in the classrooms.  The results aren’t baffling to anyone who has had firearms training or is familiar with defensive gun use:  Armed teachers with a few seconds’ notice that there is trouble are almost universally effective at repelling an active shooter.

On Sunday, December 30, 2012, The Truth About Guns joined forces with King 33 Training to perform a series of live fire simulation of active shooter scenarios. We wanted to assess the potential impact of armed personnel on school property during an event like the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. This article will serve as the “Key Findings and Executive Summary” of the results from that experiment, providing a single article that discusses the results. It contains a link to the full report at the end . . .


Check out the story.

Or just download and read the 16-page report.  It’s good reading.
