Now is the time for all of us to stop thinking with emotions and go to the drawing table with common sense and real working ideas. The only thing that an armed guard would have provided at the school in CT, was one more BODY. I am a former Military Security Policeman and a Former Police Patrolman/Detective from Phoenix, Arizona, who has 24 years in Law enforcement experience. I have been to many homicide scenes and we as a nation are all angry and thinking of solutions that do not make sense...

Now is the time for all of us to stop thinking with emotions and go to the drawing table with common sense and real working ideas. The only thing that an armed guard would have provided at the school in CT, was one more BODY. I am a former Military Security Policeman and a Former Police Patrolman/Detective from Phoenix, Arizona, who has 24 years in Law enforcement experience. I have been to many homicide scenes and we as a nation are all angry and thinking of solutions that do not make sense and will not work (armed guards, metal detetors, arming teachers, volunteer retired/off-duty police officers, bans on assult riffles, taking away guns all together, etc.). If an ANIMAL wants to get away with a Columbine or a CT School shooting or a Colorado Movie Shooting, or a Virginia Tech College School Shooting, they WILL find a way, unless we change things so that things change everyday and that no one, but the principal or the school district knows the number of people there are to protect their children, how many guns are in the cars of the school officals, where the police are that day, how many volunteer parents are at the school helping and have concealed guns legally in their car, or things like this...things that make sense...things that disrupt a PLAN, because all the above I mentioned were PLANNED! They were not RANDOM! I for one will NOT sign this cause for it is NOT thought out without emotion and common sense and has nothing else with merit to it and would NEVER stop another one of these from happening in the future. SORRY!

The Lord will be with each and every one you now and forever. This has been very painful for everyone but only the ones who have lost a child or grandchild can truly feel your paid. I lost a grandson at the age of 17 days in 2008. The pain is still their but the Lord has held my hand and carried me through this pain. Love and prayers to all of you.

I'm a veteran and I'm willing to volunteer. You don't have to pay me to protect our kids.

Address the cause as well folks.... Guns are freely available on the high street in the USA unlike anywhere else. US government is now quoting " we are the only industrialised civilisation on earth to have a problem like this".... lno where else on earth has as much gun crime... so this needs to be looked at. Bringing up children in a fortress like military compound is not the answer... sickos who want to shoot folks will go and shoot people en masse ellsewhere in the community... take the...
