No. Least they weren't a couple years ago. Elementarys are better than middle or high school. High school you could walk around halls all day long no one saying can I help u or anything.

Hope from this day forward Logan county schools are locked down everyday! School boards, administration should be holding emergency meetings Monday on the changes they are going to make no matter the cost, security cameras locks on doors, etc.! Schools are lax around here!

Its my understanding that the school where the shooting occurred recently upgraded security or at least that is what the reports say. Cameras were installed and vistors had to buzz for entry where there were greeted at the door and escorted where they needed to go. For whatever reason, the shooter gained entry = perhaps casually buzzed in because he was known??? More to come

I worry about college dorms. Teach your kids well they can be to trustful. Only takes a slick one to talk his way in or hide and follow them in. Keeps me up at night.

Those safety measures really helped out yesterday.Guests had to buzz in that secure school, cameras everywhere, and the shooting still happened.

I have been thinking about kindergarten students all day. Five and six year-old kids….with no cares and with eyes on Santa coming soon. I see kindergarteners every day at our elementary school; you can always spot them, because of their book bags. They are small, innocent and
love the world…and they give the BEST high fives, ever. They high five with love and eagerness….unaware of this nasty world we live in and the fact that monsters really do exist, in the form of killers, like the one who showed up at a school in Connecticut today.

I have read many of the opinions posted on our page here and want to offer my own. When disasters like this happen, we as a society tend to go way off, one direction or another. Moving to either extreme is not the answer, in my very humble opinion. We should not ban guns. We should not arm teachers.

I am a gun enthusiast. I am an NRA member. I am not a right wing extremist. I have been around guns since birth and have always had one in the house. For those who want to make guns illegal, I have a comparison….cocaine and heroin are illegal. Making something illegal just means that those with a moral compass will not possess or use it….criminals still will. I do not know about the rest of you, but when I am backed into a corner, and have to protect my family from harm or death, I do not want to take a baseball bat to a gunfight.

On the other hand….my gun enthusiast friends need to simmer a little. The talk of “criminal" or "gun free zones” is also a little dramatic. The world is not collapsing. There are not bands of roving killers who prey on people because they enter s store or buildings where guns are not permitted. Teachers should not be armed in a school. I do not want teachers having the responsibility of being in a shoot/don’t shoot scenario or worrying about proper backdrop. We constantly work those scenarios and they are unnerving at best. Mrs. Crabtree should not have to worry about breaking out her Glock while also trying to give directions to 25 screaming 1st graders. Additionally, a small fraction of the gun people who “talk the talk” about what they would do in a life or death situation would most certainly not “walk the walk”. It’s very easy to say or type “If I was there with my concealed carry, I would have killed him”….it’s not so easy to put that play in motion. Many would shoot themselves in the leg, and then urinate. Again…that’s a fraction of the gun people, so don’t come unglued.

So….we had another mass killing at a school. Innocent children….angels…. gone. I have said it for years, to anyone who will listen. It is time to direct tax money to every school in this nation. It is time to make our schools secure. The time for talk is done….it was done YEARS ago. There should be NO one in the building during the school day except for staff, students and police. Dedicate a secure room/vestibule near the entrance for conferences or meetings with parents. Set a perimeter of cameras and locked doors, so these kids can be safe….the teachers can be safe….and the building can function as a school and not a murder scene.

Fed and State elected people, nationwide, listen up…..You have taxed beyond belief. You have attempted education reform numerous times and failed. You are failing children and teachers in a way now that is reprehensible….and they are dying. Stop lining the pockets of your lobbyists and start securing these schools. If you can fund the study of methane gas released by cattle, you can damn sure make these schools safer. And yes, it is on you. You have taxed at a federal and state level so much; you have caused the locals giant issues with passing ANY taxes.

These children leave the safety of home every day….it is our job to return them home, safely. Let’s start making schools a “safe zone”….and not just show up for photo ops when kids die. Lead, or get out of the way.

As hard as it is to think beyond those who are lost or injured, we must remember that this was a very sick young man.
It would seem that all of these tragedies in recent years revolve around people who are mentally ill.
I pray that we get back to more direct dealings with those afflicted. What can we do as individuals, as families, as communities, and governments to identify and treat or remove the threats to us all.
I too think that it all must start with prayer and prayer in all places. We must once again put God back in charge of our lives and our nation.
If you have no fear of the hereafter, you have no fear of the here.
