Isn't this common sense?

Shouldn't we use common sense to protect students?
A friend who lives in Israel and does business here told us the difference between here and Israel is in Israel everyone has guns. They know how to use them well. If a terrorist or criminal attacks citizens, other citizens will respond. If is necessary to defend innocent children or adults they will shoot.
It is time schools in America have armed guards. Like they do in Israel.
I use to oppose citizens having guns. Now I see arming well adjusted citizens as a good idea. Sadly the criminals and terrorist all have guns.
We should have a test for anyone buying a gun that determines if, they are stable.
We have a constitutional right to bear arms.

The NRA and their GOP would love it. More guns. More money for the NRA. More contributions to the GOP.
No, I think arming everyone in the country is a bad way to go.
There are already more guns per capita in the US than almost any other nation, and we have a terrible problem regarding gun violence.
More guns being the answer is the NRA's mantra and dream scenario.
Australia would be a better comparison than Israel. Israel is almost always in a constant state of near war. Plus, due to conscription, a huge percentage of Israel's population is either in the military, or has been in the military. That and their formidable law enforcement would account for a lot of the gun ownership.
In 1996 Australia did a gun buyback, reducing the number of guns by about 1/5, and gun deaths have dropped significantly.
There was a Right Wing report that circulated around 2001 that claimed the opposite. That report has been debunked via several legitimate studies.
The only thing that can't be definitively determined is how many lives were saved by initiating the buy back program. There are some things that can't be proven short of being inside everyone's head.

Other than knowing why the NRA loves the idea of more guns, I'm not considering politics either.
When it comes to living under near martial law or sensible gun laws, I'm for sensible gun laws.
Legislators have even blocked proposals to deny gun sales to people with mental illnesses, and people that are on terrorist watch lists. They won't close the no, or limited background checks loophole at gun shows.
Wanting those things isn't political. It's about public safety.

I am not considering politics. What works to protect people is what matters.

The reality is Karven Israel does this and their schools are not attacked.
