I don't want to know who or where it is but I demand somebody has a gun at both our schools at all times from now on.

How about instead of demanding something you get on the school board and press the subject matter of having a resource officer at both locations? And thats a armed Texas Peace Officer. Not Bubba or Sue Ann with a hunting license. How about you bring up the issue as to why the City of Cooper is paying a man to be mayor a whopping 52 thousand dollars a year? Yet our streets look like the streets in Iraq?

I agree with you both. I think that teachers or principals with a conceal and carry should be able to have their guns at the school. I do think that they should be required to keep them on their person at all times, not locked in a drawer somewhere. Mr. Mom, we would have a lot better chance of arming our responsible teachers and principals than we would getting a licensed officer there at all times. We just dont have the resources for that in this county. You know how much the mayor makes, now look at the others in the office. Cooper tax payers have a lot of their money in that office and a few other places. Prob more than they spend on the roads.

Why not go to the city council meetings and bring up these valid points. It would be most interesting.

Arming a woman principal with a pistol would be a mistake. There SHOULD be a security officer at BOTH schools FULL TIME, and the SCHOOL should pay for it!

This position should be filled with a person registered with TECLOSE and not some Sue or Bubba with a hunting license.

Hopefully this issue will be taken up in Texas legislature soon. I heard on the news today that it will be introduced.
I hope people do not allow themselves to make choices based on the shock and grief.
All types of reporters and officials will say you are more likely to be killed in your home with your own gun. If that is true why do police officers keep their guns at home instead of locked up at the station? If we do not need guns to protect ourselves then why does the secret service carry guns to protect the president?
Passing gun laws will not deter gun crime any more than prohibition kept people from drinking.Criminals do not obey the laws we have and will not obey new laws.
Whether you are sure if you need it or not, please fight for your right to be armed. Once it is gone it will not matter if you need it.
Remember also, none of these mass shooters have chosen a police station or gun range to attack. They choose places that are vulnerable and unprotected. We have metal detectors and armed guards in our courtrooms. Lets give our kids the same protection.

The proliferation of assault rifles, which basically have NO use other than killing other people, is a problem. The mass numbers of the Communist made cheap semi auto rifles with 30 round clips in the hands of nuts are not good for the responsible gun owner who likes to hunt. Get them off the shelves.

Responsible gun owners do things besides hunt. In fact, not every responsible gun owner hunts, duh. Some of us like the idea of being able to defend our families against armed criminals with access to the most high powered weapons. So, if a criminal, who will not be affected in the least by a ban, invades my home, shall I fire back with a semi-automatic little .380? Again, banning assault rifles will not deter death rates or mass murders any more than prohibition stopped drinking.

Thomas Darden and Anita (whoever) are running the school. The others are just head nodders.
