He assumes this, despite the fact that an unarmed teacher gave his goddamn life using his body as a shield to protect his kids. Spence would have us believe that if he had a gun and was trained,...

The guy is a coward (though I can't say I like the POTUS saying that on TV, I'd hate to see the guy commit suicide over this).

Correct, they are saying that because having armed guards isn't 100% foolproof, that it's therefore not a good idea. Perfect is now the enemy of good.

No one idea is fool-proof. Gun control sure...

CT did something pretty aggressive after Sandy Hook, right? Can you still buy an AR-15 in CT?

In that particular setting, it wasn't a question, it was a set up. And Rubio (though I agree with him on most issues) is too much of an intellectual lightweight to respond appropriately.
