1-Put us guard shacks with trained and armed guards.
2-Have a system that locks all class rooms and office at the flip of a switch.
3-Video camaras on all entrance ways and exits and strategic points around the School with someone trained to monitor till the last child has gone home.
I know a lot of you will say that we can't afford these kind of things. If the big carpet mills in the area can afford to protect their assets with guards and camras then we as taxpayers should be able to afford to protect our most precious assets. Our yourger ones deserves to live and learn without the fear some nut case trying to kill them. What's money anyways? Just Government print!

Sounds great Doo and I agree with you ,But the first thing you would have to do is and where you are going to run into a problen with it ,is all of these young ungrateful republican's that don't want to pay taxes in order to get it done.It will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to get it done in all of our schools.It is also going to cost hundreds of billions of dollars to start taking care of the mentally ill people again,remember when we threw them out on to the street,because the people no longer wanted to pay taxes to keep them up.I guess it comes down to where you place your priorities,we could also stop abortion over night,if only people were willing to pay enough in taxes to help keep them up after they were born.Again it's "PRIORITIES".bobbie

I don t usually comment but here goes,if you trust the schools to be with your kids everyday you need to put some trust in them to protect them.And that is by putting a gun on your principals and superintendants and maybe a select few of the teachers out there(background and all other checks as well).This is the world we live in people it aint Mayberry anymore and it never will be again.To me this would be the only other option we have.If you take the good peoples guns only the bad will have them and that is something we should not be promoting.Trust me if some psycho comes in shooting and they are met with the same force,chances are they will run away cause thats what cowards do.

Aren't a lot of the class rooms connected already? How about a panic room per 2 classrooms? It would be used, not only in case of gunmen, but for tornadoes and severe weather also.

I don't think putting armed guards at every entrance like a prison is a great idea.

Honestly people, how many fights did you see in school? What happens if one of those fights involved one of the guards? You think hormone filled teenagers are going to do the right and respectable thing all the time?

Hundreds of billions of dollars just to do it in Murray? I hope that's not what you meant cause that's very outlandish. Schools are only as safe as the people in them want them to be, like anything else. If a crazy guy wants to shoot it up then chances are he's gonna find a way to shoot it up and that's just the way it is. Holla

A select number of teachers need to be deputized and allowed to carry forearms. No one needs to know who they are except local law enforcement. These teachers would go through the same training and tests that policemen and sheriff deputies go through.

Should say "firearms" I hate my spell check. Of course big "forearms" might intimidate the bad guys!

Is the Murray County schools all you are worried about?NO I was refuring to the united states of america schools ,remember it and if you are going to house all of the mentally ill people and take them back off of the streets and care for them ,you haven't seen anything yet.Taxes ,taxes,and more taxes,as I said you haven't seen anything yet.

How about hiring an out of work Vet, with military training stand at the main entrance of the school, lock all doors except for exit only, and not let people in without a student ID or anyone else for that matter. Even metal detectors too. How many millions could that cost? Cameras don't stop people walking thru the doors. They just show the people that need stopping! No, that may invade privacy or some other crap, but it might have slowed down that killer in Conn.... Don't over think this Obama or whoever. All this tv coverage is giving more people ideas. Yes it's sad, yes it's news, but it just makes those idiots famous and that's what they want. To die and be remembered.

I agree that the least expensive and most sensible solution is to see that select teachers and school authorities are trained in the use of guns, put a gun in an undisclosed area of each school, and make it known to the general public that they are there. If the criminals who commit these acts have even the knowledge that there is a chance that there could be immediate retaliation against their acts, it seems it would decrease the chance that they would attempt to commit them in the first place.
It suprises me that this act would make anyone call for more gun control. If criminals are crazy enough to do what they do, what makes anyone think that a law preventing them from buying a gun is going to keep them from accessing one? Who is going to follow gun laws? People who are already law abiding citizens!

Good Idea ,but do not forget ,we have a guy "Robert Bales " that just got through doing roughly the same thing ,so it seems it can happen to anyone.If the people that were to guard the schools were check out the way they should be,it might work.But if people buying guns,or rather people that had acess to guns were check out the same way ,we wouldn't be talking about this.NO matter where you go with this ,it always comes back to the very same thing,Mentally ill people"so if you are going to solve the problem ,or at the very least slow it down,we need to take care of the mentally ill before ,not after something like this happens.Media,I think is just as much responsible for this as guns are,if not more so.

The federal government used to send us Safe and Drug Free Schools funding. That was eliminated several years ago. The system used that money for video cameras for schools and buses as well as the magnetic locking security doors at every school.

Little Joe as usual little boy or girl you don't know anything about anything.
I don't belong to the NRA. Unlike you I worship no man and owning a firearm is a Constitutional right not a privilidge that no person can take away without amending the Constitution. So if you think you can take that right away get out of your mom's basement, quit playing video games, get your sexual problems resolved and work with all of your Communist atheist comrads to amend the Constitution.
I know that is not going to happen because you have to actually work to accomplish the repeal of the 2nd amendment Hussain Obama can't do it for you.

The NRA is the only ones that I have heard say anything that would even come close to solving the problem and I do not belong to the NRA.Assault weapons ban did not work the last time and it won't work this time either.Utah and Texas have already started their programs to train teachers and guards.
