Good Guys With Guns: Atlanta School Shooter Stopped by Armed Guard (Georgia)

Around 1:50 yesterday a 14-year-old student at Price Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia pulled out a handgun in the center courtyard and opened fire.

Another school massacre?

No, the young gunman only managed to fire off a handful of rounds before an off-duty armed School Resource Officer ended the shooting and took the gun from the gunman.

For everyone who wants to diminish the idea of armed officers in schools, consider this - Price Middle School has metal detectors. "The obvious question is how did this get past a metal detector?" School Superintendent Erroll Davis asked about the gun. "That’s something we do not know yet".

You cannot stop someone who is determined from committing a heinous act.

Let's say it again, the only thing that stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Sadly, the School Resource Officer in this case is not routinely at this school. It was sheer luck that saved the day.
