“Not every school, strip mall or place of worship can afford armed security, but they should still have a security plan in place that will include, if a nightmare bursts through their doors, a lethal response from a trained employee or employees.
“As for deterring mass killers from entering your premises? Post signage that people in the building are prepared and trained to keep the employees, worshippers or students inside safe. If someone wants to inflict mass casualties, what location are they more likely to target — a school or church that’s a ‘gun free zone’ or one advertising its armed security? Remember, mass shooters may be crazy, but most of them aren’t stupid.” – John Carlson, Crosscut, How We Can Prevent Mass Shootings Without Banning Guns
