I think now is the time to implement some very strict screening into our school entrance ways. And probably work place environments too. What's wrong with these crazed people going to malls, work, schools and such and shooting the place up? Won't happen here? Don't ever think that. Complacency can no longer be the norm. My heart grieves for the families in Connecticut. They have to be just stunned. God shall show no mercy upon those that commit such acts. Are we really secure? Do you feel secure in your place in time each day? I no longer do! Crazy. Help us all Lord!

We are safe nowhere, but ilife must go on. We grieve but we must go on. All we can do is thank God every night that we made it through another day.

The safety of our children should never be in jeopardy at a school. It is important that all school districts learn from this unfortunate event.

I think it is important to have plenty of "Gun Free Zone" signs posted......that way you can have something to shield you from nutjobs who ignore the laws. They seem to be working great so far??

Israel figured it out in the early 70's. Nothing says don't start crap here like a cute teacher with a light semi-auto in full display! Especially knowing that they know how to use them!

For your information the schools already have screening in place. Our schools already have a police officer in the schools.None of this will stop someone.How do you think we should increase work safety? Do you want to be searched every time you go shop? In the end each individual is responsible for your own safety. Be aware of what is going on around you. One of the best ways to fight this evil is to care about others. When we care what happens to others it creates a better world.

We are not a free country. Our government runs our show. Our insurance plans tell us what Doctor, clinic etc. that we can and can't go to. The world is so full of hate. I still look for the good, but it's difficult to find, even compared to 10-15 years ago. We need to spread more love, and not just at Christmas time. We are slowly killing each other. We can have drills until we're blue in the face, but where I work, we are sitting ducks. Sometimes I think about what I would do if someone stormed in with a gun....that would have never crossed my mind 10 years ago. I worry about my beautiful grandchildren at school! Peace!

I don't claim to have the answers. No, I don't REALLY WANT to be searched every time I go some where to shop or go to work. BUT, I do want to come home too,,,ALIVE! You see, I care, and, I care about you! Just want you to come back home alive too.
