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!

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.
