Well, there goes the #guncontrol narrative: Armed guard at Atlanta school stops shooter

One of the arguments gun control advocates have made in the wake of the massacre at the Sandy Hook elementary school is that an armed defender would do no good, perhaps be even more dangerous to children and staff than simply hiding, or… something. (1)

I guess the administrators of Price Middle School in Atlanta didn’t get the memo, because an armed security guard [1] disarmed a psycho student with a gun, preventing a potential slaughter:

Atlanta’s police chief says an armed officer working at a city middle school where a student was shot was able to disarm the suspect, also a student, moments after the shooting. 

Authorities say a 14-year-old boy was shot in the back of the neck Thursday at Price Middle School and his injury does not appear to be life-threatening. The suspect was taken into custody.

Once again, the best defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

RELATED: This isn’t the only time an armed defender has saved lives: an off-duty cop recently prevented a workplace massacre [3] in Texas, while Columbine might well have been much worse, had it not been for the presence of an armed deputy [4] on campus.

Footnote:
(1) Maybe they’ve seen that bizarre DHS “What to do in a mass-shooting situation” [5] video.

Edit: On rereading the original article, there’s nothing to clearly indicate the guard was an off-duty police officer, though many “armed resource officers” are police working a second job. I’ve altered the text for accuracy’s sake.
