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 live in england and we havr a gun law and i seems to work.....never see anybody out with guns here but with all due respect the states is a huge country.....but there must b something that can b done coz what happened recently is fery sad but im afraid if there is no sort of gun law that this sort of thibg will happen again...ur schools need electronic systems for doors so its easy to escape but a bugger for someone to get into unless they work within the school.

more counselors needed? or only sell rubber bullets or something make it hard to get ammo, not that you couldn't but just an idea.

Thank you very much for all your support. I just cannot fathom losing my son, or being in the hallways or library at Columbine, or any school and have my life changed in that way. God Bless everyone who has been effected by this. And prayers for our nation, I think we need God back in school. I appreciate any opinions and thoughts posted on here :) I want something done.

He crashed his way in, they had all the protections in place. You can't stop all of them unfortunately. I agree this was a major disaster, but how caged in are we going to tolerate our lives?

Yes he did shoot his way in, however, would he have thought twice about it if there were two armed guards or armed administration or something of that sort? Just because it can happen doesnt mean we shouldnt do everything we can to prevent it! Our kids are worth that....

We need to teach students escape routes, and also build strong and reinforced "panic rooms," where only school staff and students can get into. We have armed guards in many public buildings and busnesses. It's a sad statement on our times that we need them now in our schools. But students need to feel, and be, protected from the growing violence in our society. Who is more vulnerable than school children. Parents also need to know their children are as safe as possible while they are in school.

I am honored that you used my post as the opening of this cause. I honestly believe that keeping the children safe should be our first concern. Thank you.
