It's a measurable fact that most people are safe most of the time. Its also a measurable fact that people that are in possession of a firearm are infinitely more likely to be involved in an incident with a firearm.
Not to mention that there is no such thing as "good guys" and "bad guys", and, as such, giving armed people access to school is a recipe for disaster. Who protects the kids from the protector that turns on them? What happens if the guy with the gun is outnumbered? Should we just turn all of the universe's physical matter into guns, just in case?
