We have an armed officer on our grounds everyday, have had for years. I thought this was pretty common actually, I know our entire parish is like this. I love the guy and he's great with the kids but honestly he's one guy and it's a big school(small by most standards) there is way too much ground to cover if someone decided to go nuts. They would have to walkie-talkie him and then he'd have to run over and from wherever he was. Then again it would help bring it to an end quicker and save a few people I guess. Our principal has tried to get more security going but the parent's are idiots and won't do it. He has a sign in place and your supposed to get a tag etc... half don't do it because they volunteer daily and don't see the need. Regardless the office/cop need to know who is on campus and why. He tried to put a fence around the perimeter and the parents had a fit because it meant they had to walk father to get in. It's a small town and people don't think this could happen here but it damn well can. I don't have the answers but I agree with everyone that there is no need for most of the guns on the market, if it takes you 60 rounds to kill a deer than maybe hunting isn't for you.
