What Pluribus said.

The current GOP House or the next GOP president should enact a law or executive order which requires school systems to have at least one trained civilian or police guard with a firearm at every public school. This guard must carry a semi-automatic pistol with a large capacity magazine or an evil black rifle such as an AR-15, and meet the marksmanship standards required by the United States military or their state police with those weapons. If they fail to comply, they receive no, I repeat, NO federal funds of any kind.

School shootings would then be a thing of the past. Count on it.

It doesn’t go far enough. One officer can NOT be on the whole campus at all times.

I worked in a school office, and any one of us would’ve let that “man” through security. Because. We. Knew. Him.

I’m VERY serious in my belief that the teachers need to be trained and carry all the time.

That is another great idea, kind of a variation on my theme. I was trying to consider the costs involved, and hey we are paying the guardsmen anyway.

I've been advocating having a weapon on site, and getting personnel trained to use it for the past several years.

If we ever had a similar situation occur in our rural school district, it would take the sheriff's department 20 minutes, at best, to reach our school.
