Arm the teachers. In an ideal world, we would be better served if the Media would report malfunctioning teens being blown away by armed teachers and admin personnel instead of 5 hours of cops searching area or sitting on their asses while people getting shot.

Punish bringing a gun to school with the death penalty.

Arming the teachers is not a good idea IMO.

They would have to go through training in one reason and it would cost money times 4.

Parents need to be more responsible for their kids.

Teachers need to teach and have no business in the law enforcement of the schools.

Most schools have a Police resource Officer assigned to schools now a days.

Surely you jest, or are you speaking of the criminal element only? I bring a gun to school everyday.

Ok, let me amend that: Arm the (willing) teachers/admin. They should have armed personnel on premisis CAPABLE and WILLING to engage in close combat with an armed opponent trying to harm/kill innocents.

I agree with arming the willing. A short course in selfdefense with a weapon isn't that expensive. Training for a CWP costs $100.

MSNBC:

Former student tried to enter school. Was turned in by other students who knew he was no longer a student at the school.

Gun found off campus near/in housing construction area.

No injuries or shots fired, apparently.

Hi All-

This kind of crime happens because we permit it to happen through our actions. Parents and school administrators need to be in charge of schools...not some kids who think they can get their way with a bit of crying, whining, kicking, and complaining. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the innocent victims.

Is there another thread on this PA shooting?

Good grief pretty sad that the school shootings are running on one thread now a days.

If this keeps up we will have an on going Live School Lock down Daily thread.

Let's pray things ease up.
