An armed good guy at schools is not a guarantee the bad guy will be stopped, but a gun-free zone with no good guys with guns is an absolute guarantee the perp will have his way.

I say the more the merrier.

I would love to know how many FReepers are actively volunteering to guard nearby schools since Sandy Hook.

I am.

Why do they phrase it as “arming” people? Why not just allow them to bring their own guns as they see fit?

Teachers are not even competent enough to teach, let alone giving them additional security guard duties.

Ya got half the parents unemployed, many are underemployed, many are qualified military veterans, etc etc...Have them volunteer...Offer them tax incentives for those volunteering. This will be a minimal cost to the communities...

Have the local government police perform background checks on the armed volunteers, maybe some free training, and then they butt out and let the local parents run the volunteer school security.

This is not rocket science or somehow complex.

Each school could have several qualified parent armed volunteers, in and around the schools during school hours allowing the teachers teach.

I’d bet the rent, more than a few qualified parents from nearly every single school in America would step up to volunteer.

Those teachers that have an interest and take the concealed carry training should not be prohibited from carrying at school. No one should know who that is, which is the point of concealed carry. It’s good to hear the Sgt. express a personal opinion in favor of teachers carrying. Rather than have some big program or new federal department, just let the teachers that want to, to carry concealed. Maybe that will only be a small percentage, but that will be sufficient to act as a deterrent.

In fact, it doesn’t even have to be parents...

How about those who live near the schools who are qualified, former cops, military vets etc...You’d get all kinds of good qualified people to volunteer for armed security around every school in this country.

Let the local cops do the background checks and all those parents and others living around the schools to develop these school armed security programs.

Have Americans became so damn stupid or fearful were not even capable of basic common sense, easy, inexpensive solutions?

Teachers are citizens, and the 2nd says that the government shall not infringe on their rights to keep and bear arms. Remove the rules that forbid those with a valid concealed carry license from exercising their rights as citizens on campus.

Aww, heck, and buy a damn shotgun and some shells for the school office. Deduct it from the coffee budget, err, I guess really only the creamer budget.

Has anyone done a study on how this violence has increased dramatically since we started mainstreaming students with mental disabilities? How many of these mass shootings have occurred since the mentally deficient have been placed in the normal kids rooms? How many of these shooters have been on prescribed drugs to adjust their behavior isms? When will the psychiatrists be held responsible?
