This has been on my mind for some time…

There are no laws that will stop someone with strong intent or mental issues. We have local, state and federal laws about guns on school property, murder, agg. battery…yet these laws stop no one with strong intent or mental issues. Laws only penalize those guilty of breaking them, they don’t stop them from committing the act.

Our very most important asset is our children and above ALL else they should be protected. Not with more laws that do not matter to criminals or the mentally ill. We protect our professional athletes, politicians, concert performers, museums and many more people/places with proper security and metal detectors. Isn’t it time we secure our children.

There should be armed security/law enforcement and proper screening at EVERY school. Not just one school resource officer, who may or may not be on the property at any given time. This will be very costly but could be implement over a 20 year period, with immediate results.

There are thousands of retired law enforcement officer in every state, most of which have grandchildren they love dearly. Most would volunteer to protect schools, at NO cost. It could be well organized over a short period of time. Over the next few years, budgeting could be implemented to fund the proper security needed, similar to the same system TSA uses at our airports.

Making a new law will accomplish nothing, we need to act to protect our children.
