There was not a single adult male on the school premises when the shooting occurred. . . . Think of what Sandy Hook might have been like if a couple of male teachers who had played high-school football, or even some of the huskier 12-year-old boys, had converged on Lanza.
Well, he probably would have shot them dead. Just like he killed principal Dawn Hochsprung, who (as Allen half-acknowledges in a side point) acted heroically in trying to stop Lanza. Unmentioned by Allen: the several other Sandy Hook faculty and staff members who died not running for their lives but actively trying to protect students from the shooter.
Allen's contention that these people might have stopped the shooter if only they hadn't been so femaleis incredibly stupid. (I hope I would have acted as they did, but I suspect I would have been too petrified to move.) And it dishonors the heroism of the women who died in Newtown.
