One of our local school districts hired retired state troopers as armed guards. Plans were already underway to do so before Sandy Hook, but after Sandy Hook, those plans were implemented almost immediately. There were a few grumbles, but I hear most parents are now supportive.

He needs to get the City Manager, the city attorney and the city council on his side before he can take it to the school district. They are their own form of government here in Nevada and the mayor is just one man. Here’s to hoping and praying that he succeeds.
