Furthermore I think your criticism of the NRA solution is what is pure stupidity. Most schools have security guards. Having them sit there unarmed is absurd. If parents or the school district want more security train the guards and give them a concealed pistol. I guarantee you that goes a lot farther in keeping our kids safe than your weapons bans.
I have no doubt security is an issue. I live in a great area where homes are broken into. That's why I recommend you get a good alarm system that will call the police on a break in. I have both sensors on doors and windows along with motion. It works very well, I have unfortunately had experience. No guns were fired they left once the alarm went off.
I suspect an intruder with a gun who you confronted might well do something just as irrational as run, he might actually fire his weapon.
I don't know about your experience with security guards, but having them sit around kids with guns is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Many of the high schools students today are very capable of disarming a security guard and taking his weapon and might just do it for fun. You have a lot of confidence in weapons. They are highly over rated as protection and highly under rated for their danger.
