Can a school be built to protect students in the event of an attack on students ?


I prefer that they have armed security. It works well in Israel. Insane armed people will find a means to harm students unless they are protected by arm guards Who can fight back and protect them.

I don't like the idea of having to have armed guards in schools etc. but until lawmakers do something about America's gun problem, people are trying to come up with something to protect themselves.
America's returned to the Wild, Wild West. People are packing guns all over the place.
More guns isn't the answer.

If you check the statistics for mass shootings, and how they differ during the assault weapons ban and after it was lifted, you'll find that they increased dramatically.
I would much rather have common sense gun laws than to have everyone armed, and armed guards everywhere.
As for Israel, it's situated in what is essentially a perpetual war zone. Wars, and Israel's enemies are all around it.
That's quite different than what's going on in the US. In the US, the majority of the mass killings are being done by American citizens. Not enemy combatants or terrorists.
If you check the stats of nations that have effective gun laws, you'll find they don't have anywhere near the problem the US has.
The US has more guns per capita, and many, many, many more gun related deaths.
The NRA makes money promoting guns, and they have the majority of the GOP in their pocket. As a result, both engage in disseminating pro gun propaganda.
The world stats are irrefutable - more guns = more gun deaths.
It's only the Right Wing that denies those figures.

The facts, reality speak for themselves. Time and time again. Israel has no school shooting because they have armed guards.

While I agree with all you said about our healthcare situation, I disagree that having a population packing guns wherever we go would be good and reduce gun violence and deaths.
I believe that thorough background checks, closed gun show loopholes, and a ban on military style weapons, such as assault rifles, would.

I grew up in NYC and use to oppose guns. After examining the data, hearing the facts I think we would be safter if, law abiding citizens had guns. The police can not be every place. All the dam criminals and thugs have guns. Citizens have a constitutional right to protect ourselves.
Guns do not kill people. Unstable people, criminals, savages are murdering innocent citizens daily.
Families who have people with chemical imbalances suffer greatly. Our state psyatric hospitals are understaffed. Many psychiatrist speak poor English. They lack training, are unfamiliar with medications and require help from nurses. The psychologist and social workers are not up to the job and lack empathy. My husband use to do his best to empathize with families and help them.
In America all citizens should be able to receive competent mental health without going bankrupt. Private therapy is over priced, issuance covers too little. Most psychologist and social workers are good at their job.

I agree that we don't take care of the mentally ill, but I also don't want to live in an armed camp, fearing gun fights could breakout anywhere at any time.
Aside from war zones, the US has more guns per capita than just about every nation on Earth, and we also have more gun related killings.

The reality is when civilized people have guns they protect the innocent. A man who lives in Israel works here and use to live here told us interesting information. He leans L. He said, the difference between terrorist attacks in Israel and America is most Israeli's are armed and citizens shoot back when terrorist attack. In Israel there are no school attacks because armed guards protect students.
Guns are the problem. Are problem is mentally ill people that are not getting the help they need. In the late eighties funding to psychiatric hospitals was cut. They were forced to release chemically imbalanced people that require mediation and 24 supervision. When they stop taking medication they will find a means to harm people. They use knifes, posion, train tracks and anything available.
We must fund psyachrtric health care for all.
