I found this article on the topic. However, I had to use a search engine different from the most common one to get it. The most common one only had hits promoting a certain narrative, at least in the first few pages. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/israel-armed-teachers/ Since 1974, in Maalot, when a terrorist killed children in a school, Israel passed a law mandating armed security in schools, teacher training in firearm use, and frequent active shooter drills in schools. It’s apparently at the teacher’s discretion whether they have a gun in the classroom, but obviously many choose to have one. Since then there have only been two terrorist attacks in schools, and in both cases the TEACHER killed the terrorist.  In Israel, during the intifada of the knife several years ago, the government told Israeli citizens to not go out without a weapon. I have read several reports of terror attacks begun, but cut short when an ordinary citizen shot and killed him, often with just a pistol. i didn’t say I wanted Rambo in every classroom. I want a gun within reach of every teacher. I read that since Australia is an island, it’s easier to control guns coming in. That’s not the case here. One of the articles pointed out that we have close to zero control of illegal immigrants and illegal drugs coming in. We could not control illegal guns. Even states with strict gun control laws, like Cali and NY, have lots of gun attacks and massacres. As do countries with strict gun control laws like the UK, France, and Germany. (Yes, because -.) Every attack could have been cut short by an armed citizen. My father had to have a gun on him in his job for the IRS (mafia in Las Vegas). But even in retirement, he ALWAYS had a conceal carry when he left the house. I don’t know if it was legal or not, but it wouldn’t have made any difference. He never used it. You say if everyone else did, but in the US, that time will never come. Second Amendment, large numbers of bad guys armed regardless, and the majority of Americans sensibly have a positive view of what may save their lives and that of those around them. I read yesterday that a poll found that the majority supported arming teachers.
