Mass Shootings in Israeli Schools? Um, no.

Among many good points raised by John Lott recently, he posted this on his blog, referencing a John Fund article:
In 1974, three Arab terrorists broke into an Israeli school and killed 31 children and faculty. Did Israel respond by self-righteously asserting "Firearms have absolutely no place in our schools"?
No. Instead, they armed and trained their teachers and even parent chaperones, with the result that in the past 38 years, terror-beset Israel has not lost a single child within a school. . . .

. . . Israel with the win.  Isn't that, more or less, what the NRA said the solution was on Friday?
