"One armed person in a school has another name than school resource officer...first target. That solution is a bad bandaid at best." I disagree. Large high schools have a community the size of a small town, and their assigned officers are useful parts of their community, just as officers are useful parts of any community. They do much, much more than serve as first targets, including building productive, inspiring relationships with some students. In addition, if an attacker were to focus on taking out a school resource officer, that would lead others to call 911 and would get help onsite sooner.
