Make sure it's got the safety on.
A child isn't going to be traumatized by the simple sight of a gun. More likely, they're going to be intrigued by it. And most children in America wouldn't know how to hold, let alone operate, a weapon like that.
There's a lot of "what ifs" in this. How bout the one that matters: What if a gunman barges into the classroom and starts shooting at the children? Oh, that's right, the teacher who has been trained to use his/her weapon pulls it out and returns fire, HOPEFULLY eliminating the threat.

I'm sure there are a lot more kids that can figure out how to turn a safety off then your scenario assumes. Introducing a gun into a classroom of children bring with it the chance of a student shooting another either on purpose or by accident. Gun's accidentally kill over 500 kids a year just from there being a gun in 1/3 of American homes. You put a gun in 100% of American classrooms, that number is going to unavoidably skyrocket. And the amount of kids that die in school shootings as it stands right now is no where near 500. So really you're not solving anything.

Kids die from accidental shootings like that because the parents weren't responsible enough to put the gun somewhere the kid couldn't get to it.
What would you propose they do instead? Outlaw guns entirely so that nobody has them except the guys who wanna kill people? The only reason that works for Australia, is because people can't drive right across the border of their country, into another country, and buy the guns there.

Then what should we do?
I read an article yesterday about a town, in the US, where it was made mandatory that every resident own a gun (started 25 years ago). The article was celebrating the fact that since instituting that law, there had not been a single murder of a resident, whether they were the criminal or the victim, for 25 years.

There is nothing we can do, our culture simply needs to change where citizens don't feel that America is a gilded anarchistic war zone where you are going to get shot going out to get your mail in the morning. People don't feel secure anymore, and when that happens it raises the demand for guns, which in turn become more available to wack-jobs that then use those guns to go duck hunting in the food court of a shopping mall.
I read your article. 5242 people is kinda a low sample size to jump to a conclusion like that. Honestly, the high school I went to has more attending students than that every year.

In a town of 5242 people they had a crime rate of 4332 per 100,000 which is over 400 higher than the national average at that time.
The current population is 28,189 and the crime rate is 2027 per 100,000.
People commit crimes they think they can get away with. Why do they usually get away with it? Because people are defenseless. If you give everyone a way to protect themselves, AND TRAIN THEM, criminals are less likely to be successful.

And is that more practical then simply trying to reform our gun culture to that of Europe, where essentially the same thing has been accomplished where all citizens are on equal footing because nobody owns a gun? Being equally dangerous to one another is the only path to peace apparently. It's the cold war on a much smaller scale essentially. So if either way works I would still feel safer if nobody had nukes.
Anyway if this argument could be solved with one discussion I would have already happened and we wouldn't be having it right now. I'm sure your opinion isn't going to change and neither is mine, but I understand yours better now.

Europe doesn't have an easily accessible country south of it's borders where you can go and buy practically any gun you want.
I highly doubt that "nobody" owns a gun. I think they just make them harder to get, and limit what kinds. But crazies will still get a gun no matter how much you try to stop them. It's just less likely to happen in Europe because they're content and they don't have much shit to drive them crazy.
America on the other hand is dumb as fuck in a lot of its policies, and it drives people here insane.
