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.

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...

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.

The public MUST stand now and demand that our ELEMENTARY STUDENTS be provided with resource officers on site to respond immediately to danger on a school campus.

I think concealed carry by the teachers like they do in Israel would be just as appropriate and cheaper, but employing returning Veterans would be good.

Too true, but small steps first, especially in La-La Land of California.

I do believe in the right for the people to bare arms but I do think that selling assault riffles should be outlawed. These types of guns belong in the hand of the Military and tactical units. I also do not believe that Schools should be allowed to carry guns as that's just a temptation for a student to break into the office of that schools to steal the gun. Also, perhaps stun guns should be considered in Schools instead of guns as Police & task force are trained to deal with the emotional &...

Also, perhaps stun guns should be considered in Schools instead of guns as Police & task force are trained to deal with the emotional & mental attitude of the assailent and their first desire is to bring them in alive. Principles would react out of fear as they do not have the training to deal with an emotionally distraught or disturbed person and would end up killing the person instead of trying to find ways to bring him/her in alive.
