SAN DIEGO (AP) — Officials from Southern California colleges and schools are being trained in how to survive an attack by a campus gunman.

A two-day seminar concluded Tuesday with a simulated gunman stalking a dormitory at San Diego State University. About two dozen participants from school districts and universities in San Diego County, Los Angeles and Bakersfield, along with some police and private security personnel, took part.

They practiced barricading doors, hiding, escaping and confronting the gunman.

The seminar was planned months before December's Connecticut school massacre.

exactly and most who "run" home schools are more than

prepared to stop any and all threats coming into their door.

These shootings are going to backfire ( no pun intended ) in the dems and even repubs face. It will have people going to private and home schooling versus government schools especially for the safety of their kids.

This might get some to give up their guns but overall more will just buy MORE and more and more just incase. No specific reason to buy them but many feel the need to do so and it is very understandable.

I do not think we need armed guards, any feds or even local cops. We don't need it to be a prison for the kids even if most government learning camps are now pretty much a prison. They have metal detectors, you need to show your id to go in and out etc.
