Letter: Teenage misfits

Sir: In your report, "Rifle association told to stay away from city" (23 April), you state that "Mr Heston sounded an altogether less conciliatory note, arguing that a teacher with a concealed weapon might have been able to curtail the violence".

Surely, teachers with concealed weapons holding a shoot-out with armed students in trenchcoats is a recipe for a far bloodier disaster than what occurred in Colorado.
