what about as part of national guard services you have to do a rotation as armed school security
That's not a bad idea. I wonder how it would work numbers-wise.

The problem with that is that you're not solving the problem. Sick people will find other ways to inflict damage. There's a special kind of illness to carry this out at an elementary school, but picture day care centers...middle schools, high schools, colleges, movie theaters.

You can't put armed guards everywhere. A friend of mine lost her brother in the Virgina Tech massacre. How do you close off a whole campus to protect those kids?
