Calm down. It's not a show of force. It's a visible, known presence(literally one or two and someone watching cameras, get a hold of yourself). Rather than an idea that a few teachers, probably untrained in defensive shooting, will have a weapon. And assuming there are enough armed teachers to deal with it, your idea of "strategically" placed teachers is around kids. Where do kids come into this strategy? And again Im saying let teachers carry if they want to, but with one locked door and an armed guard your kids may never even have to know anything happened. And again if the other side of the discussion is gun control and bans, which of our ideas sounds more palatable to anti gun activists and voters? Tactical earth science teachers or trained guards, a locked door, and a few cameras. We arent talking about maximum security...A couple professionals and the right for a teacher to keep a gun in her purse if he or she wants one
So our only course of action to shut up the nay sayers is to essentially make each school a fire base... why stop there, we can use guard towers with spot lights and 20 ft tall fences lined with razor wire, ooo we can even electrify it.... I feel thats what the conversation would boil down to... Cost effectiveness and plausible are better than a show of force.
