Right after the Columbine shooting I was working at a rural school in Mid New York State. The proposal was floated that myself and others that had firearms training and military/ security experience carry concealed at school. We went to the Principal and the Assistant Superintendent and the very first question we had was "Who is going to pay the liability insurance and what exactly will it cover?"

The idea died when they could not give us a satisfactory answer.

"Who is going to pay the liability insurance and what exactly will it cover?""""""......

That was my first thought. Volunteers are the best way, but it will never be given the "official" OK because of liability.

Now the way around that: Any parents is still allowed to come to the school and listen in the classroom, have lunch with their children. Right?

Well then a group of concerned ARMED parents could take turns doing this, no one need be the wiser. I suspect many Principles would welcome this "unofficial" method, no one need be the wiser of what those parents or "volunteers" are doing there.
