Parkland’s ‘good guy with gun’ did ‘nothing’

Why do the gun-rights advocates assume so unequivocal that the answer to gun-violence is to have more guns? Evidence from the Valentine massacre showed the exact opposite. There was a “good guy” on duty. He was armed and had been at the school since 2009. But on that day, no one saw this good guy:

The armed school resource officer assigned to protect students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School took a defensive position outside the school and did not enter the building while the shooter was killing students and teachers inside with an AR-15 assault-style rifle, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday. … When asked what he is seen doing on the video, Israel replied: “Nothing.”
