School Violence

From an attack on the Makor Haim High School in Israeli Kibbutz of Kfar Etzion:
The attack took place in the library when the two terrorists, dressed in black, burst into the room and ordered everyone to raise their hands and stand against the wall. The terrorists stabbed two students before their counselors were able to draw their personal handguns and kill the terrorists on the spot.
I can't say that arming teachers and counselors is a way to avoid school violence. What the counselors did was certainly violent. It is however a way to keep the violence short and ensure that most of it is directed at the killers instead of by them.

Perhaps this is a lesson from the International community the Democrats can embrace? Oh wait, it's Israel. They don't count.
