What I see here is the failure of the school and the teachers to protect the children when the responsibility of protecting them was assumed by the State with the laws preventing the teachers and administration from defending them. It is the fault of the school and laws of Connecticut from not having adequate police protection or safeguards to protect the children. Laws don’t protect the children, individuals do. The police only serve to investigate the scene after the crime has been committed.
Yep, my thinking too.
Unfortunately we'll never see that aspect brought up in the emotional debate we're about to see.
The Police also remove some of the bad guys, eventually. That's a big plus.
I protect my family in our home with Guns. The State writes laws forcing me to sen my children to their government schools. It is up to THEM then, to protect my children with Guns. If they do not, we should be talking about why public schools can’t keep our kids safe.
