Armed guards in schools is NOT the solution we should be asking for. It is a “compromise” to appease those that have are making demands. This is a time when we should be making demands for what is RIGHT, and NOT “compromising” on what is RIGHT! I personally would rather not have my children being further infected with dependency ideals, nor do I want my children being “desensitized” to “big brother” watching over their shoulders every day, and trained to accept the presence of “authority” in every aspect of their lives. It isn’t like the current education system isn’t already shoving that crap down our children’s throats already. They already make them sit in their perfect little rows. Raise your hand to be acknowledged. Don’t speak until your spoken too. And yet we wonder why a MAJOR portion of this country is entitlement dependent. Personally, my hope for the children is that they will be free and independent, strong and decisive, intelligent and unique. I do not want them to be cowards, dependent, or insecure. If you want to fix the problem with mass shootings, QUIT MANDATING GUN-FREE ZONES! Then when one of these idiots wants to go stupid, they will be faced by responsibly armed citizens instead of victims. And my children will be reminded that we live in a FREE COUNTRY and have the RIGHT to CHOOSE, the RIGHT to DEFEND, and the RIGHT to LIVE!
