The lessons from Sandy Hook cross over to Marjory Stoneman Douglas as well. How many lives could two (or three) armed teachers have saved by greeting the attacker with armed resistance?
An often unsung hero of the Sandy Hook attack was school principal Dawn Hochsprung, who, although unarmed, selflessly charged that school’s armed attacker and was killed. Shame on every politician, city leader, and school administrator who was part of the decision-making process that guaranteed she could not be armed in the event of an attack.
Shame, too, on every politician, bureaucrat, and administrator at the federal level who continues to fight to ensure that other principals and teachers will not be armed in the event that they come under attack.
