    They do not allow people to own fully automatic military weapons, they have no gun stores, no gun shows.......so there shouldn't be guns to be taken off the streets....yet there are.....

    Armed to the teeth. Make it a mandatory course before the teachers graduate from college. Require training and smart guns that no one else can use. Send students through machines, limit what can be brought into school. Lock doors. Arm guards. Tell students to become vigilant on social media... There are a lot of places to start. We seem to be rolling the dice with our children's safety.
    It is a shame that we no longer teach our children to respect life, and not to kill. That went a long way in preventing these mass murders when it was being implemented. Offensive works better in these matters than defense.

    Agree. If the School Board and the District agree they will need to decide who will pay for the 1) Background Checks; 2) Salary and Benefits; 3) Insurance; 4) A use of force policy; 5) The type of firearm and its cost; 6) the cost of ammunition, secure gun lockers and holsters and vests; 7) and a Supervisor, also trained as an experienced range master.

    I agree we don't need to recreate the wild west on a school campus. Just a few trained and armed people always during school hours.

    You can solve 1 because all teachers already go through a background check. 2. if you simply get rid of the gun free zone you don't have to pay anyone anything extra, 3. the school already has insurance, and by protecting students they will prevent the payouts from having students murdered by mass shooters 4. use of force policy.......easy. 5. type of firearm, I already posted..... .38 special revolver or .380 semi auto pistol. 6. cost of ammo.....might be able to get donations from the local gun stores, the teachers would keep the guns at home, not at school so no lockers, holsters...sure....vests? Why vests?

    7. Use the local police range master to oversee the training....

    There you go....since many states already do this, simply ask them how they do it...

    I don't know what is required of an armed guard, I know they need to be licensed and vetted, but I suspect most of them could not be hired by a local police agency for one reason or another.

    In my agency before anyone is able to carry a service weapon we needed to check records of the FBI, CII and all local LE agencies in the US where the applicant lived; any civil judgments such as divorces, their driving record, and they needed to pass both an oral and written psychological evaluation, pass a drug test, and a written test (to establish a civil service list) along with two and sometimes three interviews, one with outside our agency LT's or Capt's which figures in ranking for civil service test; and an in house panel of sergeants, and finally one with with division commanders. Then they can be offered a conditional appointment after interviewing at least three non relatives as references, a credit check, a medical exam and school records (academic and deportment).

    Then is hired they will spend at least 6 months under the mentoring of a FTO (Field training officer).

    That is false. It just isn’t as bad as some imagine. It is still far more violent than today.

    And people like you spend your life pretending you’d be vigilantes gunning down everyone you don’t like if only libs would get out of your way.
