I do not know.

The press will likely call for more gun laws and that is not the answer, either. Their goal is viewership and more papers sold. I do not think the press cares much about the truth; they will use this tragedy to further their needs.
That wouldn't make a difference at all, if teachers had guns, criminals would just shoot the teacher/guards first, more security would be useless as well. Criminals don't randomly go to a school and shoot, they actually plan things out, they have smarts but use them in a terrible way. Everything the US has tried to do to stop criminals has been countered in one way or another and will continue to be countered.
