the upside to having armed guards at schools is that it could likely prevent another mass homicide while creating a significant amount of new jobs. the downside is that it creates a prison like atmosphere for our children and could even be viewed as social programming. overall it is a solution that could have a positive impact unlike the alternative (gun control) which will have little impact on gun access to homicidal maniacs. personally, i will be homeschooling my children.

I am not against it. actually might deter maniacs and make them think twice about doing a crazy act. this is what the world has come to unfortunately.

Trained armed resource officers. And I mean a trained one, not a dept of education member's cousin Billy-Bob. A buzz-in-only system for people entering the school. Outside doors of a style which if the glass is broken or shot out a nutcase cannot squeeze through it and get into the building.

But in no way do I support teachers carrying guns in class. Some shouldn't be permitted to possess the pointy ink pins they are already allowed to have.

And it's a totally stupid idea to let the general public carry guns into a school building. Picture the reality of it ..... the school has all modern security measures for protecting the children, a man comes to the door and buzzes, the office people see a bulge in his shirt which is plainly a gun, they let him in anyway because the law says to ..... result, twenty more dead school kids.

But that only is a partial answer to school shootings. Other measures, better gun laws, are needed to reduce the amount of gun violence in the rest of our society.

Could you imagine an armed student walking nto a school and bing shot ad killed by a security guard ? It would be all over the news, student killed by security guard. Parents would be filing lawsuits by the next day. If someone is going to shoot their way into a school no one is going to stop them. Also the people that don't have children in school would be complaining about their tax money paying for security guards. Does security guards around the President stop people from trying to pick him off, not if someone wants to do it.

This country can't even put Guards at out Embassies, how in the hell would they put them at schools ?? What Union would they belong to?? Maybe they can pop a 40 and smoke some weed with the students, some sex on the side would help attract some quality people.

How is that Gun Free Zone Working for ya?
A friend of mine Mentioned the Federal Air Marshals. You dont know who in the Plane is the Air Marshal and who is Armed. I believe this model would work in Schools. They are a number of Retired Military and Retired Lawenforcement who work in the School System.
Gun Free Zones are a Crock!

how about getting our priorities in order. let's appease the folks and totally decriminalize drugs afterall we have obama care now. make it a medical problem.

release nonviolent drug offenders and make room and money available for the real problems. regardless of race creed or color you f'up and it's a long stay. lock up the first person to say we have more x in prison than y or z.

face our problems and it ain't any freedom we possess. it is the fact we have reared an entire generation of people that not only think they are entitled to what others earn but by god deserve it.

my freedoms should not offend you.

We should guard our children with our lives. Armed guards in schools is an excellent idea. If nothing else maybe some of these maniacs would be deterred and target politicians instead of innocent babies.

You posters assume it's going to be someone from the outside coming into the school. Most of the school deaths have been inside jobs, Students killing other Students. Don't you think that they would know how to take the Resource Officer out first ??

Then I hope you have
plan to keep them out of malls, restaurants, movie theaters, and other public places.
Sadly, thisis a problem in our culture in the world we live.
It's not the guns that are the problem, its lack of parenting, discipline, installing morals and values and respect.
It's not monitoring behavior and responding with consequences.
Nobody wants to talk about this.
These and this is what kills our kids. Adults who have guns legally, lock them up. Know what your kids are doing, what they are playing and who their friends are.
Until parents step up and parent their kids, this problem will not go away.

I agree with what you're saying, but I don't think any of the things you mentioned apply to the incident which occurred last week in CT. I don't think it was lack of parenting, discipline, instilling morals, values or lack of respect that killed those 27 people. I think the young man who committed that heinous act was mentally and emotionally just a child himself.
And yes, I am one of those weird parents who does things with my kids, rather than send them off to the movies, malls, etc., we do everything as a family. Where they go, I go; where I go, they go. No sitters for me. I know there comes a time when they are older they can go with friends, but until then, I'll protect them as best I can and enjoy every minute we have together.

I would be willing to bet you have been with dozens of licensed concealed carriers and didnt even know it.They are right behind you,right beside you,and right in front you in stores,gas stations,etc.Better appreciate them as they just might save your life one of these days.

If I didnt feel safe anywhere in America I believe I would be getting me a concealed carry permit if I was you.

In Case you forgot, right in the middle of the last Gun ban, Columbine took place. There were armed guards at the school. The officer's both discharged their gun's, but was unable to stop the carnage.

In 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 15 people and wounded 23 more at Columbine High School. The destruction occurred despite the fact that there was an armed security officer at the school and another one nearby.

Deputy Neil Gardner was a 15-year veteran of the Jefferson County, Colo., Sheriff’s Office assigned as the uniformed officer at Columbine High School.
