Toulmin Model and Campus Gun Control?

I'm getting really confused about this. I need to break down an article according to the toulmin model within the next few hours. It's about gun control on campuses. So far I've got:

Claim: Guns should be allowed on campuses because they would stop or deter school shootings.

The article goes on to talk about how no one was able to stop recent school shootings (VT, NIU) so obviously the current no guns allowed policy on campuses isn't working. It says that guns in the hands of good guys acts as a deterrent to the bad guys, and if any of the students or professors (the "good guys") had been carrying guns they probably would have been able to stop the perpetrator. What data, warrant, and backing can I draw from this?
