soo soo sad that is has surcome to this for the school environment...how can we even call it "school" anymore when the first thing you have to see is a huge metal detector, then, the adding of armed guards...it's just tragic! There are alot of high schools w/big metal detectors. My kids attended Jonesboro High School & there is a big metal detector right as soon as you enter the only door unlocked out of 4 doors...here's the kicker...I have walked in that school on different occasions...

There are alot of high schools w/big metal detectors. My kids attended Jonesboro High School & there is a big metal detector right as soon as you enter the only door unlocked out of 4 doors...here's the kicker...I have walked in that school on different occasions while my kids were still in school & I NEVER waked thru the metal detector, walked right around it, I was curious to see if ANYONE would say "excuse me Ma'am, we need you to go thru the metal detector please"...NOONE said ANYTHING to me! NOONE! Another kicker...there is a table in the lobby as you enter that has at least 2 faculty members & there was a time when there actually was more than 2 people of faculty & even county police officer present & NOT ONCE DID ANYONE EVER MAKE ME GO THRU THE METAL DETECTOR! Honestly to what extent must we all go thru to keep our kids safe in school? Security measures & procedures are only as safe & good as much as they are actually practiced & followed thru on a consistent manner! Sadly this is the wold we live in today! My deepest PRAYERS for & CONDOLENCES to the 26 lives that were lost, the families hit by this horrific tragedy! GOD BLESS THEM ALL & HELP THEM HEAL! ~Stay BLESSED~

I would have gone straight to the office and said something. If it happened again..I'd go to the principal. If it happened again.....I go straight to the school board. There was NO excuse for that. That's why these awful things happen. It's a sick world :(

Yea, you know, it's been awhile since I had to go to the high school but, when I went for Chana's transcript, same thing happened!! I didn't think it would ever happen again because like I sad it's been a few yrs since I had to step foot there but, WOW, "3" yrs later & the same thing. I will call the school and say sumthing to bring to their attention as a parent.

I pray that the system will allow PRAYER (GOD) back in the school. When u take God out of things, it will leave it unprotect. PRAYER, PRAYER, PRAYER.

Actually, I would feel better if there were two armed guards. One at each end of the school so that if one gets taken out, there is still another.

Great cause! My child had been homeschooled for the first 9 years of her life because of these kinds of horrific events. I would sign this petition only with one condition. Any armed guards put in place would have to be a private firm and not a government bureacratic branch of DHS. Gun free zones are magnets for evil people intent on killing as many people as possible with no chance of resistance! Personally I think the best solution is allowing teachers and faculty to conceal and carry on...

Personally I think the best solution is allowing teachers and faculty to conceal and carry on school property! Some states require classes for CCL licenses.
The last thing anyone wants to see, I hope anyway, is schools locked down under martial law with TSA type 'gropers' frisking students and asking for thier papers! My kid started as a homeschooled child, I can do it again real quick depending on how much liberty will be lost here!
Another thing we need to do is stop handing out psychotropic drugs like candy! This is the common thread with all these evil shootings!

We protect our money with firearms...We protect our politicians with firearms...Our businesses, same...When we're in trouble we call a cop with a firearm. Yet we hesitate to afford the same protection to our children in school? Why is this? Are we so politically correct that we ignore the evil in this world...These innocents need IMMEDIATE defense not a hopeful call for help...When seconds count the police are minutes away...

But what about when your child is attacked by a trusted teacher at school and you have been stonewalled by the authorities that have not allowed witnesses to speak up?

Trust me, YOUR child is not safe at school and the so-called 'safe-guarding' policies of schools, Ofsted and other authorities are aligned to protecting teachers under suspicion - NOT our kids. I speak from vast experience. This establishment is one lie after another and most folk will never see this coming 'until' they become victims of it themselves! Just as the Church swept odious child abuse under the carpet the educational authorities are doing EXACTLY the same thing.

My mother is a teacher, our friends are teachers, I am a student, and this is an absolutely horrendous idea.

Actually, I changed my mind. While we're at it, let's go ahead and put armed guards in front of all our homes, restaurants, and even our churches too.

Non credo sia la soluzione! Ho firmato ingenuamente e senza aver tradotto bene! Altre armi portano solo altro sangue innocente! Bisogna negarle e/o proibirle al mercato! Nonché distruggerle tutte! Fate una petizione così!

I don't like this petition !!!... the weapons/arms are not the solution !!! P.s: Io darei la vita per salvare un bambino, ma questa petizione non fa per me !!!... non so come levare la firma... ma paleso il fatto che mi son sbagliato !!! Succedeeeeeeeeeeeee... !!! Ciao

My only concern with signing anything now days is that it will give the government a chance to know exactly where I am....oh wait, I am on FB aint I??
