Some of our schools in Columbia, Mo have police sub-stations but, when there is a problem it takes them forever to get there or there off to lunch! We need police officers that will be there in time of need and not in time of need! You NEVER know when that time of NEED WILL STRIKE! As parents we NEED to know our precious babies will be protected at ALL costs, when not by our sides. TY concerned parent please keep this going untill someone hears US!

I also copied your post, I think it provides extra insight from someone who does have "protection" at schools.

I agree with the security part.. I don't know why there isn't at least one security guard on every school ground.. Someone who is friendly & doesn't give the feel to the kids that he/she is someone to fear.. But that, that person is someone who is there to protect them.. I'm a gun owner & taking the guns from everyone is not the way to go, as it's not guns who kill people, it's people who do.. But I so agree that they are not doing more to protect our schools, I'm for the metal detectors & I don't mind a guard being at my children's schools..

I see only one way to put an end to these horrific shootings. Everyone goes through one set of doors to get in, in which they pass through a metal detector. Then, when the bell rings and all students should be in class, the main doors are locked, a total lock down. If a child is ill, or has need to be removed from the school, the parent will have to buzz into the office from the locked door. The parent enters the building going through the metal detector and the door is re-locked. When...

When ready to leave the building, the door is opened to allow parent and child to leave, then re-locked after they exit.

Metal-detectors are one thing, and I'm not against them either if it makes a difference-but WHAT happened to 'school security'(guards)?
