in fact, statistics should not come into the mix when dealing with inalienable natural rights at all.
Well, clearly not everyone personally believe this is inalienable natural rights, so...

argument continues.

I will point out that I would feel safer with a cop at the schools
One is not enough. And even if it's effective (and I do expect so), it sends a message to the world that implies American schools are less safe than other 1st world countries schools.

But I suppose saving lives is more important than pride

The bigger issue would be cost as mentioned, such that even Foxnews' iffy at this idea. Assuming the armed security guard has similar salary to teachers, that would be like 1-2 extra teachers for every school in terms of cost.
