3 cops shot inside police station in New Jersey.

You don't hear of armed civilians having their gun taken away from them and used against them very often, its a different scenario, for one thing they usually carry their guns concealed, where the attacker is going to have a lot harder time grabbing it even if he knows its there.

Also, a civilian is not going to be cuffing, uncuffing or otherwise controlling somebody.

You honestly think that an assailant wouldn't be able to rush a poorly trained teacher and take their weapon? After all, they know that the teacher will be armed.

Of course why would they even need to do that when they could just shoot them right away and take their ammo for later when they run out of their own?

Many police departments have a policy that police officers in the booking area do not carry their firearms while booking prisoners and doing fingerprints to prevent just such an occurrence.

I guess this comes down to your faith in teacher or another civilian actually being able to shoot and disable a threat (probably better equipped and protected), and not have any other incidents arise as a result of them having a weapon. I have almost zero faith in that happening.

That 12 year old girl in that recent incident in Oklahoma didn't have her gun taken away from her, and given that we're talking about voluntary concealed carry, how would anyone know who's actually armed or not?

The possibility of some people being armed is a strong deterrent even if the number of people actually carrying guns is few.

And yet there is still far more gun violence in the US where everybody thinks everybody is packing heat than any other industrialized country where less people are perceived to be holding.
