Arming more people is not necessarily the answer IMO I would prefer to see ballistic doors, and glass installed - keep the gunman out.
This does not address the vulnerability of drop off and pickup times where I think the local police should provide a presence - its a couple of officers per school, for an hour or two a day - and most large school districts already have some liaison officers - this is just a few more to supplement the liaisons. I agree with your comments on Mental Healthcare - our nation needs a better system.
