The national gun control debate has been revived in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The massacre of 20 children and six adults at the school last Friday leaves many questions unanswered, including whether or not armed teachers could have prevented the tragedy.
Gun rights activists argue that the right to bear arms actually makes people safer, because it increases the chances someone present during a mass shooting will be able to fight back with a firearm of their own, or even discourage a potential assailant from acting out in the first place.
